Experience the ultimate luxury lifestyle at this exquisite Martha's Vineyard estate. Nestled in a private and serene location, this magnificent property offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and Chilmark Pond. Chilmark House, designed by Seattle-based architect Rick Sundberg and constructed by master builder Andrew Flake, merges contemporary amenities with Vineyard themes to create a truly unique living experience. Walking up to the front door you will see an enormous boulder that sits just inches away from the home. The massive stone was deposited on the property from a receding glacier long ago. As you enter the home, you will be greeted by tall ceilings, oak flooring, and natural light. From here, your eye will immediately be drawn to the walls of glass and ocean views. The modern kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and appliances from Sub Zero, Miele, Wolf, and Scotsman. The family room off the kitchen boasts a custom fireplace and is ideal for casual gatherings. Adjacent to the kitchen and deck is a wonderful screened porch with high ceilings and ample room for dining and relaxing. The primary suite is a retreat in itself, featuring access to a private study with fireplace, two luxurious baths, deck and heated floors throughout. The second wing of the house includes three large guest bedrooms, two baths and a dressing room. The heated infinity pool is awe inspiring; a centerpiece of the home with elegant terrace and ocean views. Other outdoor features include the large kitchen garden, fruit trees and half-basketball court. A detached 3-bay garage and additional parking rounds out the main house. Set apart from the main house is the two-bedroom cottage, offering guests a private spot of their own. Chilmark House includes private south shore beach rights, accessible by boat from Chilmark Pond. This one-of-a-kind property, where the Obamas have vacationed, is the ultimate in luxury living. For a truly seamless transaction, all furniture, artwork and gym equipment is available for purchase. Please inquire for more details.
