MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Massachusetts, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An enormous 314-acre oceanfront property on the south shore of Martha's Vineyard, known as Homer's Pond, has just been listed with South Light Property LLC. One of the largest coastal properties for sale in the northeastern United States, the property is surrounded by ocean and conservation lands and offers the ultimate in privacy.
"Homer's Pond is so large and secluded that one might call it a private kingdom," said Charles Carlson, one of the property's listing agents. This magnificent, one-of-a-kind property can be purchased in its entirety for $118,000,000, or a buyer may elect to purchase a 100-acre land parcel on the western shore of Homer's Pond for $31,000,000, a 164-acre land parcel on the eastern shore of the pond for $43,000,000, or both parcels for $74,000,000. Multiple building sites with breathtaking pond and ocean views have been identified on each parcel. These sites are ideal for individual homes or compounds for families and friends.
"The property's unique size and terrain maximize seclusion and privacy, its proximity to the airport ensures quick access, and for those looking for an active and social lifestyle, Edgartown is just minutes away," added Carlson. "Homer's Pond is much more than a summer escape destination -- it is a year-round investment unimaginable to many and one characterized by beauty, serenity, and convenience in all four seasons."
Each element of Homer's Pond is oversized. 1,200 feet of private oceanfront beach, a 35-acre fresh water pond for swimming and boating, and seemingly endless pristine woodlands and grasslands grace the property. The architectural award-winning home has spectacular amenities. Floor-to-ceiling windows dominate the four-bedroom, 5,600 square-foot home, taking full advantage of 180-degree views of Little Homer's Pond, and a white sand beach fronting the Atlantic Ocean. A competition quality Har-Tru® tennis court, sauna, steam room, whirlpool spa, outdoor heated salt-water pool, sweeping decks, and a "state-of-the-art" underground wine cellar with a separate above ground entrance with a capacity of 12,000 bottles complement the home that sits on its own 50-acre parcel. On the property is a charming one-bedroom beach house -- perched on stilts and standing amidst trees -- overlooking the private beach with its amazing ocean and pond views.
With all of Homer's Pond's beauty and amenities, the property's most exceptional quality is undoubtedly the land, with its vastness and untapped potential for development of one or more compounds for families and friends. For those seeking incredible views, private oceanfront beach, fresh water ponds, supreme privacy, and Martha's Vineyard cache, there is no place like Homer's Pond.
