Ephraim Allen Road

Town: West Tisbury | Sub Area: Lambert's Cove | Property ID : 26773

Description :
Where time stood still - A farm with farm house, guesthouse, barn and other out-building that has been captured in a time capsule representing the Vineyard as it was generations ago. The buildings and surrounding farm land have been passionately restored, enjoyed and maintained. The original site of Norton Farm in West Tisbury, the farmhouse, barn, and two additional buildings were originally built around 1800 when it was part of the natural landscape of the Island.  The farm was then purchased by the current owner, who despite the deteriorated condition of the buildings, became totally enchanted by the setting and landscape.  In the 1990's the restoration process started and was being managed by a craftsman who had restored buildings in Gettysburg.   Driving along Indian Hill with its rolling fields, stables and stone walls is a treat in itself.  As you follow the winding road and take the last turn you are facing a vista of rolling hills, a stand of cedar trees that look like the original site of an Andrew Wyeth painting.  The buildings are perfectly located on the landscape; the tree shadows continually move as the day extends and at the back of the barn is a perfect small pond where peepers sound off in the evening. A variety of birds and other wildlife are your neighbors. A path that starts along the side of the barn leads you to the shore of Vineyard Sound. This is an exceptional property that will speak for itself and to you when you visit.

Descriptions /Comments :

Comments / Directions: Basement:There are two basements -a root cellar with a separate entrance and a utility basement. 1st Floor:The renovation of the kitchen was part of the restoration in the 1990?s.  Historic in design but contemporary in use, it captures great natural light. There are three parlors each with its own fireplace, a study off the main parlor and a full bath.  The woodwork and doors are original.  The interior paint is historic milk paint colors of the 1800?s adding to the museum quality look of this warm, friendly home. 2nd Floor: 3rd Floor: Other Structures:BUNKHOUSE - The picture perfect bunkhouse is large enough for three single beds.  Electricity is already installed and it may be possible to insulate and heat the building and add a full bath.  The size and design duplicates the building that was originally there.  BARN - A barn is a barn is a barn. But this is a classic, historic barn that was restored in the construction style of the period as indicated by the roof.  It is a large, handsome open space that invites a July 4th event, an August Harvest Festival and Thanksgiving dinner.  Between the big events, it can be used as a studio or workshop.  This building as well was restored to the original specifications and construction of the original Norton Farm Barn. There is also the potential to insulate and heat this building.
