M**artha’s Vineyard is well known for its expansive water views and maritime history, but a core component to the island’s unique identity is the rich agricultural tradition that is still vibrant today. Rolling green hills dotted with farms and crisscrossed by old stone walls are only a few short miles from the busy seaports. Here's one property that carries on that tradition and is now available for purchase.

This week's Pick of the Week is a wonderful country home set on more than three acres in West Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard. Drive up to the 3,752-square-foot home and step out of the car and your senses are immediately engaged. The sweet smell of honey suckle fills the air and views of the expansive lawn and horse paddocks meet the eye.
The property is located in a very private section of the island, yet is convenient to Alley’s General Store, Library and Farmers Market a quarter-mile down the road on the left. Bustling Edgartown is to the right.
The property is ideally suited in the local farming community. A large greenhouse lies next to the big house--use it to grow seedlings and fresh produce year-round.
The land lends itself to fauna and flora alike. One could easily grow their own vegetables or maitain poultry, goats, chickens or horses.
The property comes complete with fenced paddocks for horses. The pasture has lots of room for them to graze. Nearby are riding trails that go on for miles.
A big lawn with wide open sky complements the paddocks beyond.
The property also comes with an existing baseball diamond and small putting green. It’s a great place for kids.
The home is made for families. The large, eat-in kitchen has been an important gathering place for multi-generational vacations and holidays.
The sunny master bath is the perfect place to start your day.
This relaxed farmhouse is built for comfortable living with lots of spacious rooms. With five bedrooms, it’s designed with family in mind. It’s a wonderful location to raise a family, invite friends for a visit, or establish a welcoming vacation home.
