Experience the ultimate luxury lifestyle at this exquisite Martha's Vineyard estate. Situated in a private location with commanding views of the Atlantic Ocean and Chilmark Pond, the property offers safety and serenity, perched on an elevated site well above the flood zone. Chilmark House, designed by Seattle-based architect Rick Sundberg and constructed by master builder Andrew Flake, seamlessly blends contemporary amenities with Vineyard themes to create a truly unique living experience. As you approach the front door, you'll notice an enormous boulder, deposited by a receding glacier, sitting just inches away from the home – a striking natural feature. Upon entering, you're greeted by tall ceilings, oak flooring, and an abundance of natural light. Your eye will be immediately drawn to the walls of glass showcasing panoramic ocean views. The modern kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and high-end appliances from Sub Zero, Miele, Wolf, and Scotsman. The property includes a wonderful screened porch with high ceilings, ideal for dining and relaxing, just off the kitchen and deck. The primary suite is a luxurious retreat, offering access to a private study with fireplace, two lavish baths, a deck, and heated floors throughout. The second wing of the house features three spacious guest bedrooms, two baths, and a dressing room. The heated infinity pool, a centerpiece of the home, offers elegant terrace views of the ocean. Outdoor features also include a large kitchen garden, fruit trees, and a half-basketball court. A detached 3-bay garage and additional parking complete the main house setup. Additionally, a two-bedroom cottage provides guests with a private retreat 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, epitomizes luxury living. For a seamless transaction, all furniture, artwork, and gym equipment are available for purchase. Adjacent 5.5 acre lot is available as well – call for details. Don't miss the opportunity to own this extraordinary estate.
