Sunrises, sunsets and all-day sunlight grace this welcoming, elegant and beautifully-kept hilltop home. Its glorious wrap-around views extend over fields, meadows, ponds, far-islands and many miles of ocean -- rare indeed for the Vineyard.
Linger over breakfast in the bright, eat-in kitchen, or savor the panorama first-hand from the large dining table on the spacious, sunny deck, where lounge chairs also encourage lingering. Relax in 2 well-furnished and comfortable living rooms (one casual).

Catch frisbee on the expansive lawns, or savor the sunset from deep seating on the front porch. Seafood meals get merry around the gracious dining table, followed by drinks or cards in the tower living room. Your master bedroom is upstairs in the same lovely tower, or choose the 1st floor master with joining handicap-accessible bathroom. Each bedroom has ocean views, art, and comfortable beds.
Accessible daily: just down the hill is our intimate, private Beach #1, perfect for young and old (no surf), where you can also secure your kayak or small sailboat. Visit 2 local town beaches, or access our pristine, key-member Beach #2 for surf -- or quieter pursuits in the big adjacent pond.

A stand-out home, with an outstanding history, the house is an up-island landmark for its yellow-painted Queen Anne main house with red roof, and ball-topped tower. The grounds include a meadow-sized lawn beyond the main house, perfect for weddings and large, tented parties or celebrations. The Tower House estate property has changed hands only once since beginning as a multi-acre farm in the early 1800's. It has been our family's summer home for over 50 years (note: without central heat or AC, fans are provided in summer; space-heaters in shoulder seasons).
Our family's third generation now provides the property's responsive, active care.
Adding to this property's special character: access to two private, unspoiled Chilmark beaches. One of these is below the house (5 minutes by car), the other off South Road (15 minutes by car, key entry).

A wealth of activities nearby...: Countless memorable enjoyments are within close reach of the Tower House -- besides our lovely beaches! Sample wonderful restaurants, good casual eateries, an active community center, public library, and lively grocery store within 3 miles. Menemsha village is just across the pond, with charming shops, fishing charters, and just-caught seafood arriving off traditional trawlers as they dock. A brisk bike-ride from the house takes you to Lobsterville for 'insider' shoreline fishing, or to Aquinnah's beaches and magnificently colored cliffs. Farmer's markets, art galleries, craft and antique fairs start at West Tisbury mid-island, with exceptional shopping boutiques, good live theater, bookstores and ever-changing movies just beyond in 3 bustling towns. Nature walks and bike trails criss-cross the island, 3 golf courses offer tee-times, and history comes alive in charming byways and museums. Or simply relax at home, with ball games on the lawn, internet, good books, puzzles & games, shady nap-spots!

WEDDINGS.
September is the month of weddings at the property. During this month, weekly rentals of the Tower House run Wed. to Wed., allowing for wedding event set-up/breakdown and a wonderful weekend celebration in-between! The 5-bedroom Tower House allows up to 10 people to easily stay on-site for all or part of the wedding week. This Victorian-era summer house with its ample gathering rooms and decks is without central heat or AC, so fans and space heaters are provided for weather that's extra-hot or -cold.
The expansive and level field adjoining the Tower House accommodates large dining, dancing and kitchen tents as well as additional bar stations, lounge areas, etc. The marriage ceremony most often takes place overlooking the water-and-islands view, on a side lawn with ample space for guest seating. The property's vine-trimmed stone walls, planting beds, arched garden arbor and gingerbread-trimmed porches add further areas for exceptional family and wedding party photography.
Our guest book attests to our many wedding families' joyful memories made here!
Located in Chilmark, this vacation home is in a rural area and near the beach. Waskosim's Rock Reservation and Island Cove Miniature Golf are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those looking for area attractions can visit Chilmark Chocolates and Menemsha Blues Charters. Fulling Mill Brook Preserve and Island Cove Adventures are also worth visiting. Water skiing and windsurfing offer great chances to get out on the surrounding water, or you can seek out an adventure with cycling and horse riding nearby.
