Pristine Martha’s Vineyard Estate with 425-Feet of Private Beach Lists for $4M

Some of America’s most esteemed political families spend their summers in Martha’s Vineyard. The Obamas reportedly scooped up a 29-acre estate in the area just under a year ago, while the Jackie Onassis Kennedy’s longtime personal retreat Red Gate Farm is currently asking $65 million. Although not all of the properties on the peaceful Massachusetts island have been patrolled by Secret Service, each still offers an elegant, coastal New England atmosphere. One such dreamy estate is up for grabs. Asking $4 million, the oceanfront haven blends classic shingles with artistic, contemporary design choices.

Located in Chilmark, just a short drive from the fishing village of Menemsha, 11 Azalea Lane is the ultimate beach house. A dramatic boardwalk-staircase hybrid descends from the 8-acre lot to a private beach, which spans 425 feet of serene sand. A tennis court and fitness center also sit on the property.

The home itself is no less breathtaking, counting 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms within 4,000 square feet. While the exterior leans classic, the interiors hold a series of surprisingly welcome modern touches. The kitchen is all color, the cabinetry switching between vivid oranges, reds, and sea greens every few feet. The living spaces soak in light from skylights, their wide-open lengths airy and effortless.
