Just 7 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is a New England treasure. Breathtakingly lovely, temperate and unspoiled, with a vibrant arts scene, fantastic local food and easy transportation (via ferry or air), Martha’s Vineyard real estate is highly sought-after—with prices that can run from steep to head-spinning.
The Martha’s Vineyard Real Estate Market
The Island has accommodated European settlers since the 1600s (as well as the indigenous Wampanoag people before them). Yet, unlike some other seaside locales, Martha’s Vineyard has retained much of its natural beauty.
About 30% of its 57,000 acres are permanently protected from development, and its residents are keeping the environment pristine. No chain hotels, restaurants or stores mar the scenery here. Instead you’ll find miles of hiking and biking trails, white beaches, freshwater ponds, fresh air and ocean breezes.
On the Island, six towns comprise most of the real estate on offer, from modern condos to clapboard saltboxes to classic Victorians and great seaside estates. So ask yourself: what speaks to you?
