About Kathleen Cameron
My husband and I live on the island in Chilmark. I am a retired art teacher. I taught in the Chilmark School and the West Tisbury School. My husband and son run the Parry Windows and Doors, in Chilmark. We raised our son and daughter on Martha's Vineyard. We live about 8 miles from the house.
Kathleen Cameron purchased this House in 1998
Why Kathleen Cameron chose Aquinnah
This property is very close to the Atlantic Ocean and the water views from every room are amazing. We have three acres and that offers a wonderful sense of privacy. I inherited the land with a small summer cottage from my parents, who bought it back in 1963. While the property was very inexpensive when they bought it, we realized that with the ocean views it was incredibly special and so well worth rebuilding it and creating a two story year round home. The location is just amazing: the view of the ocean is wonderful and it is right near one of the most beautiful, Atlantic Ocean beaches anywhere, Philbin. It is a 7-8 minute walk from the house, toes in the water. The historical landmark, Gay Head Cliffs and Light House are just to the right and you can walk for miles in either direction; to the left are magnificent sand dunes. There is no development along this beach, only nature. One of my favorite aspects of our beach is the perfect gradual entrance into the water. It is not too steep and still it doesn't take forever to get in. I have always felt that this beach has the best swimming/surf on the island. The ocean stays warm enough to swim well into the fall. Aquinnah has wonderful beaches on the Vineyard Sound side as well; passes are left at the house for walk-on to Philbin and parking at those North Shore beaches and also parking at the top of the Gay Head Cliffs. The Fall and Spring walks along all those beaches and our walking trails are especially memorable.
What makes this House unique
While the house is a well heated year round house with cable TV and wifi, it always feels like a beach house - the bedrooms have painted wooden floors, perfect for bare feet. You can see the waves, hear the sea and feel the ocean breeze. The large mahogany windows were designed to take advantage of the views from every location, upstairs and downstairs. They look out toward the ocean and across the expansive lawn toward our natural pond. The house is sunny, cheerful and comfortable. It has two decks, upstairs and downstairs, 3 bedrooms and a family room that can convert with privacy into another bedroom. With our pond nearby the birding is amazing as the islands are on a migration path and our own pond attracts many species of birds as well as ducks, otters, turtles... Aquinnah is so natural that birds find wild vineyard grapes and every kind of berry to feast upon. We try to keep binoculars and birding books and a feeder at the house. We are at the end of the little road on three acres, so there is a wonderful sense of privacy. Walking the short distance from our house to the ocean is just a wonderful experience.
