"I always check the window pane in the kitchen," was the response from the homeowner when I asked the age of this historic Martha's Vineyard home. And there it is, etched in the pane, 1771. This classic farmhouse cape was built by Simon Mayhew, the great grandson of Chilmark’s first resident. Once a sheep farm, this property measures over sixteen acres and is bordered by nearly a mile of stone walls and walking paths that reveal views from Edgartown to Aquinnah. Five bedroooms, two fireplaces, summer kitchen, wide plank flooring, original doors, hardware and other original features present. Swim, kayak and canoe with deeded access to Squibnocket Pond. Treasure or expand the famhouse. Barn, studio or guest house with wide ocean views allowable.. Click here for more information.
