About 8 Red Gate Farm Road


Peace and Privacy on the Aquinnah Coastline


Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts



Offering priceless peace and privacy on the coastline of Aquinnah, the westernmost outpost on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, two rare and pristine undeveloped waterfront properties are now available which have been held by the same family for nearly 40 years as part of the 366±-acre Red Gate Farm compound. Each land holding is notable for its substantial scope and serene unspoiled beauty, with one an oceanfront haven encompassing 75.64± acres on 1,060± feet of private Atlantic Ocean beachfront, and the other 40.56±-acre retreat fronting 1,009± feet on Squibnocket Pond. Both properties have prime potential homesites which are subject to the approval processes for zoning and environmental regulations.



With its vast acreage and exquisite dune-fringed sands, the sprawling oceanfront property gives the sense of a world apart in an idyllic landscape which has remained virtually unchanged over the centuries, with no other home within view. Perched on a southwest-facing ridge on the gently rolling upland, the potential homesite commands glorious views sweeping to the ocean’s brilliant blue waters and sunsets in the midst of this sublime seaside paradise of pastoral coastal heathlands and high sandy dunes. Cleared trails meander through the lush age-old landscape of iconic beetlebung, oak, and beech trees in the splendid solitude of this truly extraordinary property which is also a natural habitat for abundant coastal wildlife.



The second waterfront property looks southeast over 603±-acre Squibnocket Pond, which lies within the towns of Aquinnah and Chilmark, giving picturesque views over the open expanse of calm waters and winding coastline to the Atlantic Ocean beyond the dune-fringed barrier beach that stretches between the pond and the ocean. Two potential homesites on the acreage include one nestled by the shoreline of this tranquil waterfront retreat, an unspoiled natural refuge for bountiful wildlife, with many varieties of trees and plants enhancing its pristine landscape. This one-of-a-kind property also enjoys deeded access to the ocean by boating over the pond waters, as well as by car. Giving breathtaking four-season beauty, Squibnocket Pond is a water sports oasis for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and fishing.



Nestled on a peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Vineyard Sound, Aquinnah is known for its peaceful serenity and unspoiled natural beauty. Majestic multi-colored clay cliffs rise above the sea at the tip of the peninsula which is also the site of the historic Gay Head Lighthouse. One of the Northeast’s finest coastal resorts, Martha’s Vineyard preserves a picturesque landscape with exquisite sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, and extensive conservation land that encompasses about one third of the island. Only about seven miles off the Cape Cod coastline, Martha’s Vineyard is easily accessible by plane or ferry. There are two airports on the island – one only for private planes, and the other for both private planes and year-round commercial service from Boston, Hyannis, and Nantucket, with additional seasonal service from other locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York, as well as Washington, DC.
