This house has been my family's primary residence for 24 years. It is a dream come true to live on the ocean in a community rich with maritime and American history. I have always loved to share my home with family and friends and now want to share it on a rental basis for 2 months in the summer with families who will enjoy it and treat it like their own home.
I bought the original cottage which was located in front (ocean side) of this house and helped build this house while living in the cottage. Since the house is built into the primary dune, the main entrance and driveway is at basement level. During a renovation ten years ago, I installed an elevator to make the house wheelchair accessible. When I broke my ankle in April 2012, I appreciated immediately the accessibility aspects of the house. I used a wheel chair to do laundry, empty the dishwasher etc and truly was so thankful the elevator had been installed. The family bathroom toilet and sink is wheelchair accessible as well. For the summer of 2016 I added a wheelchair accessible outdoor shower on the main deck to accommodate a client. I'm happy to extend all the joys you'll find in this house for those with extra needs.
Upon arrival, I strive to personally give everyone a 30+ minute tour of the house and show you how everything works (ie. elevator, German tilt/turn windows, A/C systems, fully automatic generator back up system, hot tub etc) and answer any questions you may have. I will be available by phone and in person if necessary during your stay and have technical support on call if any maintenance issues arise during your stay.
The surrounding area of Boston, North Shore, Portsmouth NH and all of northern NE for that matter are at your disposal while you stay at the house. Boston is 45 minutes away. Make the most of your vacation and enjoy! Enjoy what people love about Martha's Vineyard with less crowds, at a much better value, with much easier access.
