I'm bound for the Island. The tide is with me.
And it feels like, I've never, I've never been gone.
Never Been Gone, Carly Simon 1979
Katama Delight of Martha's Vineyard
We've just completed a major makeover!
For summer season 2018 our kitchen and baths have been completely remodeled and updated. We also rebuilt our deck and balconies (see photograph above) - and there's more . . . a newly decorated great room and updates to other interiors as well.
(Present photographs, excepting the exterior of the house (above) are pre-remodeling and are being updated.)
Lovely custom-built house, pleasant walk (.8 mile) across the Katama Plains to South Beach and a bike ride to historic Edgartown. Adjacent to the Herring Creek bike path. Tranquil setting for an unforgettable island visit; views overlooking Herring Creek Farm and Katama Plains. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated. Meticulously maintained. Three levels of living space - 2,300 sq feet of bright natural light: spacious living area with cathedral ceiling great room open to large, fully equipped kitchen (22 ft of counter space) and sun filled dining area (seats 8-10). The house features a 2nd floor overlooking the 1st floor living space. The 1st floor great room is designed for relaxing; furnished foremost for comfort, gently cooled by a ceiling fan and softly lit in the evening by track lighting. Three sliding glass doors open to the large south-facing deck, overlooking landscaped lawn and garden area. The bedrooms are immaculate and comfortable. The house is filled with wonderful features to make your vacation truly pleasant and carefree.
Highlights and features of the house include: walk to salt water beach; lovely views over the Katama Plains from 3rd floor balcony; large 1st floor south-facing deck overlooking lovely lawn and garden, BBQ grill (gas); enclosed, private, outdoor hot/cold water shower; linens and towels provided; washer/dryer; dishwasher; fully equipped cook's kitchen; 2 hdtvs with full cable service; 2 Blu-ray disc players; wireless internet access, iPod docking station with speakers, stereo w/CD player; beach chairs, towels and cooler; fold-away crib, high chair, and play table and chairs.
The house is updated and decor is renewed each year. In recent seasons we updated the dining room and great room furnishings and added vintage bureaus and sideboards to the bedrooms. Recently, we installed an Electrolux front loading washer and dryer, a GE profile gas range/oven, a Bosch dishwasher (super quiet!), a LG French door refrigerator/freezer, and new counter top appliances including a food processor, toaster, waffle maker, a blender, and a Keurig Platinum single cup coffee maker. Updates to furnishings and decor include: Hunter Douglas vertical blinds for the sliding glass doors in our great room, memory foam mattress toppers for the beds, and Sony blu-ray disc players for the great room and the loft. We installed air conditioning and placed new outdoor dining furniture and chaises on the deck in 2016, and in 2017 we have installed wood flooring throughout the second and third floors and freshly painted the interior from the uppermost reaches of the cathedral ceiling to the baseboards. Come and enjoy!
