Oddly, the West Tisbury estate with the most expensive asking price
on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts has yet to lure in a buyer. Hence, the PriceChopper has sharpened its blade and headed out to the Vineyard.
Apparently, the not-so-humble spread was chopped earlier in the month, but somehow, the significant slice managed to escape our attention. Since it's never too late to discuss a potential nominee for the PriceChopper Hall of Fame, here goes: the listing first hit the market as a 266-acre potential compound back in July 2012 with a rather hefty $92,000,000 asking price. One year later, the seller, one-time hospital magnate Gerald DeBlois, decided to throw his contemporary residence plus an additional 48-acres into the deal, raising the ask to an epic $118,000,000. Sadly, there are no interior listing photos of said casa, but here's the brokerbabble:
Overlooking Little Homer's Pond and the ocean beyond is a place of calm, a residence whose beauty lies in how it honors the surrounding land and ocean. Designed for easy living and completed in 1985, this award-winning 5,600 SF home by Gary Graham of Graham Meus, Inc. is dominated by floor-to-ceiling windows that take full advantage of 180º views of Little Homer's Pond and the oceanfront beyond. Expansive decks connect a central section and flanking Guesthouse and Pool House wings with bedrooms above. With five wood-burning fireplaces, expansive decks, and a charming one-bedroom beach house steps from the beach, it's the perfect venue for relaxation during any season. This is Martha's Vineyard real estate at its loveliest -- and most private.Indeed. In addition, the 314-acre property includes 1,200 feet of ocean shoreline, a private 35-acre freshwater pond, and 10 lots that "can be yours in its entirety, or you may choose to create multiple estates or clustered homes on three smaller parcels or combinations of parcels (Parcels A, B and C) on Homer's Pond." The new asking price for the whole shebang is $108,000,000.
