Property description

Nestled close to the heart of Edgartown village, at the corner of High and School Street, this charming historical home is situated on Martha’s Vineyard Island, renowned for its wonderful beaches, fine food, and great fun.

Wonderfully restored and expanded, the spacious main house was built in the late 1600’ s; the main house is now part of a compound, with two lovely new guest cottages perfect for extended families, several couples, or groups of friends.

Kid and pet friendly, the main house has lovely hardwood floors, beautiful antiques and 4 bedrooms with air-conditioning. One of the cottages features a second master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi tub and the other has a living area with pullout sofa bed, fireplace, kitchenette and a private bathroom with a great shower. Both cottages have central air-conditioning.

The entire compound has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a private, fenced-in lawn and garden with two patio areas, catching morning and evening sun, perfect for outdoor dining on those beautiful Vineyard summer days. The jacuzzi is great for waking up, after a run, or an evening glass of wine.

It is just a short walk to the harbor, galleries, ice cream shops and fine restaurants. The home also offers high-speed Internet wireless, cable TV (4 TV’s, with 2 DVD and 1 cassette player), phone with free US long distance, and beach chairs, boogie boards & toys for nearby beaches.

A quick stroll and you are in town, yet you have a quiet private oasis away from the lively bustle when you want it. Heading for a walk or a jog in another direction, you are at the harbor, or out in the country, exploring the beach or Morning Glory Farm, or picking up scones and that morning paper, or sandwiches and drinks for the beach, or seafood for dinner.

The best part of the Vineyard is at your fingertips.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: We have been coming to Martha's Vineyard all our lives, and love the wonderful beaches, and the chance to sail, play tennis and golf, go fishing and shell fishing and crabbing, and explore the ponds and estuaries by kayak, and the nature preserves by foot. From the 'Flying Horses' carousel, 4th of July fireworks, and Illumination Night in Oak Bluffs, the 'Black Dog' schooner trips in Vineyard Haven, or the parade and yacht races in Edgartown, we cherish the life here. Local fairs and markets abound, art shows and antiquing flourish, and wonderful restaurants are delight us. The life here is rich and varied, something we like to share with extended families or groups of friends, so that they can fall in love with the Vineyard as we have.

Why the Owner Chose Edgartown:
This is our family summer home, not just a rental house, a warm and comfortable place, well-appointed but much lived in, a place for children and families, and well behaved dogs (fenced in back yard), with many memories, and new ones to be made, for kids and parents and grandparents, or in laws, especially since we have added two lovely tasteful but more modern cottages, giving privacy, and togetherness, for teens, for in-laws, for other couples, in a quiet part of Edgartown, but just minutes from all the restaurants and entertainment, that cup of coffee, those special sandwiches, those ice cream cones, a drink, dancing, and remarkable dining.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A charming historical home on Martha’s Vineyard with a wonderful quiet in-town Edgartown location (Massachusetts), with two recently built guest cottages perfect for extended families. The main house with central air has lovely hardwood floors, beautiful antiques and 4 bedrooms with air-conditioning. One of the cottages features a second master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi tub and the other has a living area with pullout sofa bed, fireplace, kitchenette and a private bathroom with a great shower. Both cottages also have central air-conditioning. The entire compound has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, a fenced-in lawn and garden with two patio areas, catching morning and evening sun, perfect for outdoor dining on those beautiful Vineyard summer days. A gas grill completes the picture. It is just a short walk to the harbor, galleries, ice cream shops and fine restaurants. The home also offers high-speed internet wireless , cable TV (4 TV’s, with 2 DVD and 1 cassette player), phone with free US long distance, and beach chairs, boogie boards & toys for nearby beaches.
