593 Herring Creek Road
With Lake Tashmoo in your front yard and all of Vineyard Sound at your back door, this is the perfect setting to recreate the summers of our childhoods - digging clams to cook & eat on the beach - swimming 'til our lips were blue while Dad fished - reading under beach towel "tents" until we were allowed back in the water.
This enchanting beach house has a front-to-back living/dining room, offering views of both the Sound and Lake Tashmoo. The master bedroom is generous in size and its vaulted ceiling and views out to the Sound make it light and airy. The guest bedroom is just delightful with windows on three sides offering incredible views of the Sound and the lulling effect of the waves lapping against the shoreline is irresistible.
The 2003 renovations of the home kept its vintage appeal while including all new Anderson replacement windows, updated kitchen, new exterior shingles and interior beadboard. At the same time, the owners undertook a complete rebuild of the separate studio/bunkhouse which has insulation, electricity and cable, oak flooring, all new drywall and skylights. There are two built-in couches/day beds, creating plenty of sleeping space for 6 - and the generous number of windows look out to big views of Lake Tashmoo.
Come - be a kid again.
