Tall specimen trees, grassy fields, gurgling wetlands, and a cordate pond create a park-like quality to this property. All of this rolling down to a bluff over a sandy cove with 1300 feet of Vineyard Sound beach. The ponds host populations of rare clam shrimp, the only places where they have been documented on the island. Marl Pond, the easternmost of the ponds, is of special interest: its natural acidity was used to preserve the baskets and hemp ropes of early settlers.
