An enormous 314-acre oceanfront property on the south shore of Martha’s Vineyard, known as Homer’s Pond is being carved up and offered for sale in four parts totaling $99 million, a price that puts it in a line with the priciest properties in the U.S. This 226 acre private kingdom was originally offered for $92m in 2013. Later on, owner Gerald DuBois added 88 acres more and the price was increased to $118m.
Currently Homer’s Pond is split up into four parts. Selling it in smaller parcels will make it more attractive to a broader segment of potential buyers.
An 11.5 acre parcel, with 200 feet of ocean frontage and a one bedroom beach house, is for sale for $11.5 million. A 35 acre part that features a private pond and two building sites, sets the buyers back $20 million. A 41.5 acre parcel, with a four bedroom main residence, tennis court and saltwater pool, is available for $25.5m. And the priciest parcel, a 226 acre land that includes 400 feet of ocean frontage, a 35-acre pond and 141.8 acres of conservation land can be yours for $42 million.
One of the most expensive properties in America boasts 1,200 feet of private oceanfront beach, a 35-acre fresh water pond for swimming and boating, and seemingly endless pristine woodlands and grasslands grace the property. Although not a mansion, the residence has spectacular amenities. Floor-to-ceiling windows dominate the four-bedroom, 5,600 square-foot home, taking full advantage of 180-degree views of Little Homer’s Pond, and a white sand beach fronting the Atlantic Ocean. A competition quality Har-Tru tennis court, sauna, steam room, whirlpool spa, outdoor heated salt-water pool, sweeping decks, and a “state-of-the-art” underground wine cellar with a separate above ground entrance with a capacity of 12,000 bottles complement the home that sits on its own 50-acre parcel.
