While most people remember award-winning actor James Cagney as a song and dance man, on Martha’s Vineyard he was known as a hands on farmer. In 1936, on his very first visit to Martha’s Vineyard, James Cagney fell in love with the beauty and tranquility of the island and acquired rolling acres of land with stone walls bordering the fields and a farmhouse dating back to the 1720s.
New to market is this rare offering at 137 Quansoo Road, Chilmark, with over three acres of pond front land, waterviews and access to the Atlantic ocean via the Tisbury Great Pond or from Quansoo.
It's September (already) and there's a universal opinion on the island that, despite having the same number of weeks as any other year, this summer went faster than most! The prime July and August weeks flew by but as always we are squeezing out that extra month of September, with its bright blue skies, fluffy white clouds, spectacular sunsets, quieter roads and restaurants and of course the fishing Derby.
The beaches of Martha's Vineyard are some of the most beautiful in the world and are one of the reasons the Vineyard is a destination for many throughout the summer months for swimming, surfing, fishing, clam bakes and good old fashioned R&R.
Hot Property! What’s sold so far this summer!
With no less than 6 property closings already since the end of June, we are set for a continuing busy August and September here at Tea Lane Associates. This is the time, when renters, buyers and sellers are enjoying the Vineyard and thoughts of owning, upgrading, down-sizing are on the minds of our summer visitors.
2017 has been a busy year and many sales came to fruition this past month including:
Last week saw the sale of Huseby Mountain Farm , a beautfiul 26.5 acre piece of property in West Tisbury.

New to the market this week is this beautifully built and tastefully appointed 5 bedroom home on 3.2 acres on Tennis Lane, Chilmark.
Wednesday night brought the crowds to the MV Performing Arts Center for a one night only performance by talented singer songwriter Aimee Mann. Presented by MVY Radio, and part of the Martha's Vineyard Concert Series, the show was a highly entertaining combination of old songs and new songs, spanning her career which began in the 1980's, as well as couple of collaborations with special guest, Jonathan Coutlon.
