Summary

"Stillpoint", where time stands still. This is the feeling when you enter this tranquil historic estate in West Tisbury on beautiful Martha's Vineyard. Classical New England elegance is combined with European influences that immediately transport one to Tuscany or the Cotswold's whilst encompassing quintessential American style. This 50 acre country estate is comprised of three dwellings; the elegant main Federal style home dates from 1795 and was brought to the Vineyard in 1987 from it's original site in the Berkshires. Complete with swimming pool and pool house, gorgeous landscaping and views over Priester Pond. Classical proportions provide 4 comfortable en suite bedrooms, ample living and entertaining rooms, and a fabulous gourmet kitchen with double doors to an amazing brick floor conservatory/sun room with bar area and another set of French doors to the pool terrace and gardens. The home is surrounded by beautiful landscaping including an Italian inspired terrace complete with fountain and meadow views. At the opposite end of the pool is a studio/ pool house currently used as an art studio. Across the driveway is a contemporary barn, built by South Mountain Company in 2012. The 2700 square foot barn is currently used as an event space, workshop and art space, but the building could easily convert to additional living space. A bank of solar roof panels provide power for this structure plus the main house. There's a outdoor fire pit and established vegetable garden. Across the lawn from the main home is an equally immaculate second home, which has been restored with the most impeccable attention to detail and taste. The Luce Athearn House, dates to 1714 and has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. see full description under "2nd dwelling". The whole property has so many unique and interesting places to explore and just be at one with nature and the surrounding . 50 acres of meadow, woodland and frontage on two ponds.....and if that isn't enough, the property abuts Polly Hill arboretum and Land bank conservation land. A Stillpoint one feels like one could be anywhere in the world yet its just a 5 minute drive to West Tisbury center. A 10 minute drive to the airport or to the Vineyard Haven ferry. When it's time to finally leave one is left with a feeling of gratitude at being able to experience this jewel of a property. The peace and tranquility will draw you back.
