Red Farm is a magical world that encompasses wild natural beauty, and multiple dwellings overflowing with stories and picturesque antiquity. The sprawling estate combines iconic Island history, over 21 private acres of pastoral West Tisbury land. The property also includes a key to Hancock Beach, a beautiful South Shore private beach in Chilmark. The Robert Luce homestead now known as Red Farm is one of the first and oldest English style houses in West Tisbury and is still on the original site. The antique homestead has been carefully renovated preserving the character of exposed framing, the builder's marks, and the large cooking fireplace with bread oven. An antique home from Eagle Bridge, NY, was purchased from the descendants of Grandma Moses, brought to the Vineyard by the current owner of Red Farm, and painstakingly connected to the main dwelling to create the master suite. The antique barn features two levels and an attached greenhouse with a sauna, soaking pool, and a working 17th century French bathing tub. There is also a charming two bedroom guest house that was once a forge. The property offers walking trails, exquisite stone walls, an outdoor entertaining area, man-made pond, and a replica of Thoreau's cabin where he wrote Walden Pond, his treatise to the worth of a spiritual connection with nature. This spiritual connection to the natural world and days of old is truly embodied by the Red Farm property. Property being sold "as is", with a historic home, seasonal guest house, barn and two conforming building lots and possible post closing subdivision reformation by Buyer of five lots or adjustment to three lots.
