A idyllic location where Watcha Pond meets the Atlantic Ocean, the ospreys soar and the surf laps the shore. This special piece of beachfront property has not traded hands in over 50 years. In 1959 Roger Fisher walked the length of South Beach from Chilmark to Edgartown, looking for the ideal piece of land to purchase. He found it at Watcha Pond, the only fresh water pond of the Great Ponds. The owner at the time would only sell 60 acres, so Roger Fisher put together a group of families to buy the entire piece and kept the piece closest to South Beach and on the pond for himself. Today this unique part of the Vineyard could be yours. Just out your front door - choose to take a swim in the fresh water pond or jump in the ocean waves. A four bedroom home with detached bedrooms and a studio are located on this magical spot. Restrictions in place allow for two 4000 sq ft dwellings to be constructed, with required approvals from the Town of West Tisbury, including Planning Board approval for any dwelling over 3000 sq ft. A unique opportunity to create an island paradise in a spot your family will enjoy for years to come. *The Tax Assessors Map & Lot Lines are based on 1960s data. Current conditions may vary.
