Contemporary and Classic Meet at This $15M Shingle-Style Home on Martha’s Vineyard
In Chilmark, Massachusetts, a town on the southern coast of Martha’s Vineyard, a sophisticated getaway is up for sale. Surrounded by views of the Atlantic Ocean, Menemsha Pond, and the Vineyard Sound, this listing is prime for indoor/outdoor living and would make it tough to ever leave the island in the summer. Set atop its own hill of 4.5 acres, this contemporary coastal castle built in 2008 will certainly cost you, seeking $15 million.
While embracing classic New England style and adorned in wood shingles, the home finds a modern angle in its design and flow. Inside, it encompasses 4,700 square feet of airy and comfortable spaces. The property’s main structure holds four bedrooms and four bathrooms, while a smaller guest house offers an additional two bedrooms and two bathrooms for lucky visitors.
In the main house, a gorgeous great room features a stone fireplace, vaulted dark wood ceilings, and wall-to-wall windows bringing in breezy natural views. Throughout the kitchen and dining spaces, more elements of dark wood add contrast to the otherwise white spaces.
When the peak weather of July and August rolls in, the outdoors is the place to be. Deeded access to Menemsha Pond comes with the sale, while Squibnocket Beach is also just steps away. After days spent in the ocean or swimming in the estate’s luxe pool, unwind under the custom outdoor shower or dine al fresco on the patio.
Martha’s Vineyard has long been a favorite getaway spot for the elite. The Obamas have a 29-acre estate just down the way on Edgartown Great Pond. To pick up this home, Wallace & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
