This unique and remarkable Martha’s Vineyard retreat is one of the Island’s finest private compounds, on 22 acres of natural and landscaped grounds, with an extraordinary seven-bedroom home designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Every room is appointed with the highest level of craftsmanship. There are two curving driveways running through wooded fields. The main drive passes between two private ponds, and leads to the residence of over 11,000 square feet, with exquisite living areas, sweeping decks and porches, blending harmoniously with its setting. There are seven bedrooms with seven full bathrooms and three half baths. The bright and inviting rooms offer a balance of sophisticated and informal spaces that take advantage of the natural setting of the home. Visitors arrive in the two-story entrance foyer with a sweeping curved staircase to the second floor. Ahead are a library with fireplace, a private office with fireplace, and entrances to the great room. The expansive great room invites the outdoors with a 20-foot soaring cathedral ceiling, a fireplace up to the ceiling, and 10-foot French doors that lead to a wraparound deck. The octagonal dining room with fireplace has walls of windows overlooking the manicured back lawn and flower gardens. When entertaining, parties can spill outdoors from either room. The large gourmet kitchen is exquisitely outfitted. Off to one side is a cozy breakfast nook with built-in seating. A pantry, a mudroom, an office, a half-bathroom, and the two-car heated garage are beyond. The graciously curved staircase from the foyer leads to a second floor reserved for the master suite, which includes the master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and French doors leading to two decks, as well as his-and-her walk-in closets and bathrooms. There are three more bedrooms, each with full en-suite bathrooms, in the East wing, and three more at the West end of the house. Original works by noted Vineyard artists and craftsmen lend further character to the home, including murals by Margot Datz, and artful stonework in fireplaces and an outdoor grill by Lew French. The finished lower lever, with stairways at both ends of the house, includes a sitting room, half bath, a children’s playroom, a wine cellar, ample storage space, and a laundry room with two washers and dryers. Off the back terrace is a 20-foot by 60-foot pool and separate Jacuzzi. The pool house features a screened porch overlooking the pool and flower gardens, and a gas fireplace. Inside are a full gym, sauna, massage room, and full bath. Landscaped grounds with native trees and shrubs add to the tranquility of this sanctuary. The lawn area features flower gardens, and further back, an organic vegetable garden, adjoining blueberry patch, and flower-cutting garden. The extensive property has ample additional parking for guests, as well as broad open space that could be used for additional building flexibility. The compound offers extraordinary privacy, bounded in back by a large forest preservation area. Yet the property is within a ten-minute drive to downtown Edgartown, the airport, and a noted golf club. The Boldwater Association provides tennis courts, private access to Edgartown Great Pond for small boating, and a private South Shore beach.
