Property Details

Updated: Jul 19, 2016
Down island rural estate home at Malabar Farm in Tisbury very close to town.

The Stoney Hill Road House is located at Malabar Farm, a boutique horse farm catering to dressage lessons and trail riding. The house is a post and beam masterpiece designed in the American craftsman style by critically acclaimed, local architect, Phil Regan of Hutker Architects. Completed in 2009, this 6,500 sf estate home has four formal bedrooms, three full and two half baths, two roll in showers and an outdoor shower. There are also three other rooms with fold out queen couches if your group exceeds eight adults. The primary architectural feature is the 1,000 sf Great Room which was hand crafted of fir, cherry, ash and cypress. The west wall is dominated by a massive stone fireplace and the east wall by a 20 foot long cherry bar which overlooks the chef's kitchen. The north and south walls are adorned by glass affording open views across fields and into the woods. No other houses can be seen from The Stoney Hill Road House.

In addition to super comfortable furniture and beds, the house has a high end whole home audio/video setup with lightning fast cable internet, Direct TV, Apple TVs with NETFLIX, HBO & SHOWTIME. Guests can play their own DIGITAL content over AirPlay. There are two separate TV Rooms and the master bedroom has a full surround sound theater.

There is also a full movie theater and bar that seats 12 comfortably and has a 10 ft diagonal projection screen and 7.4 surround sound audio.

Outside, there are north and south facing patios and the west end of the house has a screened porch for enjoying those beautiful summer nights without any insects. There is over an acre of manicured lawn that your kids of all ages will love.

There are Land Bank walking trails and the island bike paths are accessible from directly from the property, no driving necessary. However, a short drive of under five miles lands you in Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs or Edgartown for shopping, dining or sightseeing.

A memorable vacation/wedding at Malabar Farm

  • 5 of 5

We were told by our son and future daughter in law, what a perfect location this property was for a vacation home and wedding. Everything about Malabar Farm exceeded our expectations.

With the magnificently crafted barn, the elegant tented reception area and the sprawling grounds full of meticulously cared for landscape design, it was like a day in Camelot. The spacious home on the property had every amenity imaginable. Beautifully decorated and immaculately maintained.

The landlord was gracious, informative and available if needed.

Aside from our son’s wedding, our favorite memory during our stay, was relaxing on the front patio on a cloudless breezy night watching the full strawberry moon cross the sky overhead on the summer solstice.

We highly recommend a stay at Malabar Farm!

Stunning and Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

It was love and first sight for us -- we knew this would be the perfect property to host our wedding and mini-moon afterwards. And it was! The house is impeccable and furnished with state of the art luxury amenities, including a spectacular theater room (and shuffle board!). It also comfortably slept all of our best people, which was extremely helpful since we did most of the rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception, and brunch organization and execution ourselves with their help. Prior to and during our stay, the owner, Darren ensured that we were set up for success on every front. He is a perfectionist and took pride in making sure the property was in perfect order (no blade of grass out of place) for our big day, including the biggest star of the show, the gorgeous boat barn. Darren also recommended Plan-It MV to help us coordinate and they were wonderful from start to finish!

For a wedding, event, or vacation, this property offers up all you need to create a magical experience...including the great room in the house, the barn and massive space for lawn games (we brought KanJam, cornhole and whiffle ball from home). The location is also very central to all the best spots on island and is also extremely helpful when hosting folks from out of town -- we had friends & family staying in Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, and West Tisbury and they all found themselves able to get to the house in 10-15 minutes by taxi. Word to the wise, the road to the house can be a little confusing, so it's helpful to put up signs.

We can't wait to return in the future to relive what was easily the best day of our lives.

The PERFECT setting for our September wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for a week and had our wedding during our stay. We put our entire wedding party in the house and even had our rehearsal dinner there. I could write a long essay about why this was the perfect venue for every aspect of our trip, our rehearsal dinner, our wedding, our reception. From what I understand a lot of people use barn for any of the above activities but with the perfect fall MV weather we did not want a roof over our head. With prior permission we used the expansive yard. We used the small green opening to the right of the house (when looking towards it from the circle drive) with a wooded backdrop for our pre-ceremony cocktail our and our ceremony. We used the patio and grassy area to the left of the house for our cocktail hour (complete with raw bar) and we used the large flat grassy area behind (and to the left) of the home for the dinner/reception. It was perfect and amazing. The expansive and diverse grounds give you plenty of photo ops and our photographers were floored by everything - we made their "best of" post and constantly got compliments on how great the venue was. Can't say enough great things. Of course, last but not least, Darren was really wonderful to work with and really went above and beyond. Thank you very much!

The Happiest Place on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how incredible our stay was here... I booked this property for our wedding without being able to see it (I live in Los Angeles) and showed up to a cozy palace. Not only was the home incredibly beautiful, it was comfortable--with plenty of linens, towels, plates, even drinks in the fridge and food in the cabinets!

The master bedroom is so incredible that you'll never want to get out of bed and the family screening room is remarkable with a large projector screen--the kids were glued to the couch every night watching Netflix.

The wedding ceremony and dinner was outside on the lawn in a tent and dancing was inside the barn... The boat barn is such a fabulous addition to this property... We hung up some lights and threw up some sheers and that's all you need to make it a gorgeous backdrop for any wedding.

Finally, Darren and his family are so incredibly helpful and accommodating -- if there was anything we ever needed, they were at the door in 5 minutes--rain or shine.

If I could, I would move into this home permanently! I will always have wonderful wedding memories and truly cannot wait to come back here again with my family.

Amazing Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This summer was my family's third at the Stoney Hill Road house. The first thing we did when we got home? Confirm for next summer too!

This house is amazing. It has everything we need for family fun, combined with a peacefulness that you don't always find. We are 10-20 mins from everything we want to do on the island, but with a "homey" feel that you can't get from one of the hotels or even a B&B. Every year my immediate family invites 2-3 guests to join us, and everyone has plenty of space and privacy. And my sons (ages 4 & 7) couldn't be more thrilled with their summer vacation. We highly highly highly recommend this as a vacation spot for an extended family.

Exquisite Home/ Idyllic Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had visited Stoney Hill Road House before as guests and loved everything about this magnificent home so we were especially excited to host our daughter's wedding here. We stayed here in late September with 9 other guests.

From the lush landscaping, private grounds, impeccably clean, comfortable and organized house, this was a dream vacation. This home was clearly designed with love and a perfect melding of form and function. Darren, the owner, answered all our questions, made practical suggestions, and was available via text if needed.

The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and serve a bridal brunch. The great room provided an elegant space to relax and enjoy meals and conversation. The theater was the room that left most guests speechless! The 10' projection TV and shuffleboard appealed to the youth in all of us.

The wedding ceremony was held on the front lawn. Guests then walked over to the tent and barn where the reception and dancing took place. Everywhere one looked, it was beautiful, elegant, perfect!
