Description: This contemporary island house sits on a rise on the far west end of Martha's Vineyard, not far from where the Obama family will spend a portion of their summer vacation.

The two-plus acre property is cooled by ocean breezes and has grand views of both the north shore and Gay Head Light, on the point where the island juts into Rhode Island Sound. Much of the land here was once extensively farmed.

The house has multiple levels, which creates a flexible floor plan. There's a master suite, a large open living area with cathedral ceiling and fireplace, a dining area and dream kitchen -- all of which open to the wrap-around deck. There's even a detached studio for the privacy of guests.

The exterior has the amenity of choice for the New England beach culture: outdoor shower. There's also a screened-in porch, a beautifully kept lawn, mature shade trees and lovely gardens. The beaches are a half mile to a mile away.
