Blue Heron Farm, the Chilmark estate that has been rented by President Obama and his family for the last three summers for their summer vacation, has been placed on the market for sale, Wallace & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty announced today.
The 28.5-acre gentleman’s farm with a barn, pool, apple orchard and tennis courts fronts a cove of the Tisbury Great Pond and is owned by William VanDevender, a Mississippi businessman. Mr. VanDevender was also a founding partner in the Vineyard Golf Club. He bought the property from the estate of the late M. Anthony Fisher in 2005 for $20.35 million.
The asking price is $23.7 million. (You can find a photo the farm here: http://www.mvgazette.com/gallery.php?100)
