A matchless property on a matchless Island. A premier location on Vineyard Haven Harbor with expansive views of all the activity, a large 1.7A parcel of land which provides unique privacy, a dramatically designed pool and surrounding landscaping, and a 5 bedroom, 7,046 sf home, 2 car garage impeccably designed by premier architect, Patrick Ahearn.
The spaces are designed for casual living or an elegant cocktail party. A dramatic foyer separates the casual side of the house from the more formal rooms. The spacious kitchen to the left, with a view of the Harbor, incorporates a casual sitting area with fireplace and a separate bar area. Wide French doors open to a large porch with stone fireplace. The many windows gets you closer to the smell of the ocean, breezes and feeling of what summer is all about; beaching, boating, watching the ferry in action, good food and good company.
Leaving the casual side of the home and meandering beyond the dining room, the south wing of the first floor includes the formal living room with fireplace, all season porch and study. The different textures in each room, from the paneled study, to the softly toned living room and porch adds an element of contrast.
The second floor is devoted to the master suite and guest quarters with broad views which deliver varying angles of the Harbor. A long balconied hallway, a gallery for intriguing art, leads to the master suite on the right with an oversized walk in closet, bath and French doors overlooking the lawn and pool to the Harbor beyond. Next to the master suite is a stairway to the widows' walk and the Harbor and stars. A highly technical powered hatch opens that space for the Mary Poppins view. The north wing of the house is devoted to three guest bedrooms.
A fifth bedroom studio is privately located above the 2 car garage. It includes sleeping quarters, bath, living space and kitchenette. It has private access from the garage or can be accessed from the guest suite on the second floor.
Located on Main Street, the size of the parcel of land allowed the house to be located behind a well- planted front yard which screens all the activity and still provides a tremendous amount of room on the water side for a patio with built in grill, pool with gracious surround and a broad lawn that rolls directly to the water. The written word and videos are powerful tools however in this instance; this is a property that must be visited.
