HISTORIC TREASURE BY THE SEA Originally built in 1724 by the Norton and Mayhew families and later bought by mariner, Sam Nickerson, this extraordinary and irreplaceable home holds the distinction of being the oldest house in Menemsha. Set within a perfectly idyllic landscape with water views encompassing sailboats, buoys and the Gay Head Light, the painstaking and complete renovation in 2002 was undertaken with a refreshing sensibility aiming for an elegant simplicity. Legend has it that the house was once a lively chandlery and tavern for seamen….tales and toasts easily imagined around the central fireplace in the intriguing stone-walled lower level family room. Meticulous methods along with stellar skill and materials were used in re-imagining the spirit of the house. Original floorboards and their pegs were numbered and reassembled while the stairway to the master bedroom wing is vaulted through the massive original chimney. The dazzle of a vivid seascape is evident from many vantage points including the lovely screened porch above the terrace. The joy of a chef's kitchen is enhanced by its bank of windows, masterful lighting, ample soapstone counters and top-of-the-line appliances. Always room for one more in the separate bedroom wings plus detached sixth bedroom in the airy barn. Buoys and birdsong envelope the bucolic setting yet in ten-minutes a private trail through meadow and moor brings you to Menemsha. Plaster walls throughout... gardens, lawns and always, the sea. Truly, not a thing you'd want to change in this once-in-a-lifetime treasure.
