The property sits at the top of over 7 acres of protected wetlands densely populated with original growth, ponds, and plentiful flora and fauna, which delight in all seasons. The birdlife is amazing. Nothing can be built on the land or the dunes in front, and the view is unobstructed to the Elizabeth Islands midway and New Bedford in the far distance.

Sunrise views over Menemsha, sunsets over the Aquinnah Lighthouse, and the times in-between all make for a glorious aspect of this wonderful property.
