Quintessential Seven Gates waterfront compound. Outstanding Martha’s Vineyard retreat. Stunning views and immediate sandy beachfront. The property features a main residence and barn designed and built by South Mountain Company. Immaculately kept, the structures are virtually turn-key. The interiors offer rich details, displaying highest level craftsmanship, and elegant design, perfect for seaside relaxation. Views of the Sound and Elizabeth Islands are readily available from nearly every room, including from the guest suite above the barn. Just off the main house is an inviting pool area, complete with bluestone patio, extensive stone walls and hardscape, and separate hot-tub area. The property is set within one of the most incomparable private areas of the Island. Seven Gates Farm has a rich history, and comprises approximately 1600 acres. In addition to generous private lot sizes, nearly 1000 common acres are held in permanent conservation with The Trustees of Reservations. Many gorgeous open fields, woodlands, ponds and private trails abound. Properties in the farm enjoy access to miles of private beach, two piers and two tennis courts. This is a coveted opportunity to reside within a timeless community, originally a collection of large farms, that has been deeply focused on preservation and stewardship since the late 1800’s when the Head of Geology for Harvard University first developed his vision for Seven Gates Farm as a ‘civil wilderness’ that should be enjoyed, cherished and protected.
