MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Mass., Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A luxury home with exceptional views of the Vineyard Sound and all of the Elizabeth Islands, located on a ridge in the charming and private island town of Aquinnah along North Shore Beach at 9 Clay Pit Road, will sell at auction through Concierge Auctions, the firm has announced. Bidding will be held September 9th-16th at MarthasVineyardAuction.com. Originally listed for $3.25 million, a starting bid is in place for $1.25 million. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with listing agent Julie Flanders of Flanders Up-Island Real Estate.

"I've loved living here year-round, but especially in the summertime; although, the island is becoming increasingly popular in the Spring and Fall as well," stated the seller, Karen Duffy. "While it's a beautiful property and a great location, it's time for us to move on to other opportunities. I look forward to working with the Concierge team to find a new owner who will enjoy the property and the Vineyard lifestyle as much as I have."

9 Clay Pit Road is a four-bedroom, three and one-half bath estate comprised of more than 3,000 square feet. It contains two master suites, upstairs and downstairs living rooms, a den that can double as an office and a spacious, screened-in porch. The large, open living room upstairs contains a brick fireplace, in addition to the dining area and kitchen, which all access the expansive deck with stunning views of the Vineyard Sound. Bright blue skies and the crystal clear waters of the Sound can be appreciated through any season. The property is located within walking distance to both the popular North Shore and Red Beaches via a private road.

"We're excited to introduce our first auction on the Vineyard and to continue our success matching buyers with the nation's most motivated sellers of premier properties," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "Interested buyers are able to preview the property Saturdays from 1-4pm and daily by appointment, and can place their bids September 9th-16th."

Known for its beautiful clay cliffs and quiet natural serenity, Aquinnah is a secluded town on Martha's Vineyard known for its beauty, privacy, charming restaurants and cultural activities. Martha's Vineyard, an island of 100 square miles off the south of Cape Cod in New England, is known for being an affluent summer colony and is accessible only by boat and by air. Hosting family and friends is easy with travel options to Martha's Vineyard - ferries to the island sail from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York City, and the Martha's Vineyard Airport is centrally located for public and charter flights. Prior to 1998, Aquinnah was officially known as Gay Head, which it is still called by most Islanders from the neighboring towns. Aquinnah is one of the earliest sites of whaling, which took place long before whaling became the major maritime industry of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Bidding on the auction of 9 Clay Pit Road will be held September 9th-16th at MarthasVineyardAuction.com. A 2% commission is offered to the buyer's broker. The property is available for preview daily by appointment and is open Saturdays from 1-4pm. For more information call 866-605-7280 or visit MarthasVineyardAuction.com.
