Town: Vineyard Haven
Location, Location, Location! Walk or bike to everything. This majestic harbor view property offers living at its best in a vibrant area of well maintained and preserved period homes just one block to Main Street or Owen Park's deep water dock, beach, bandstand, and boat moorings. Enjoy all the benefits with the village mere steps away, clay tennis courts around the corner, and two blocks to the Tisbury school. The Steamship ferry dock is ultra convenient for commuters and excursions to the mainland. Located in the heart of William Street, this Bracketed-Italianate style gem is known as the Capt. Benjamin Cromwell House and was carefully sited on the highest point of the property. Perfectly proportioned cross gable and cupola, impeccably renovated and updated throughout, features include 6 bedrooms, 5 baths, chef's kitchen, oil heat, a/c, spacious finished attic with soaring peaks. Don't forget the adorable cabin guest house with its climbing roses plus the two car garage while overlooking the .66 acre manicured grounds. Skip over to Owen Park to your dinghy or kayak, grab a morning swim or stretch on the beach, or simply soak up a magical sunrise or reflective sunset while the sea ebbs and flows nearby. As the captain of the old Island Line transportation service with steam-powered side-wheelers, the Eagle's Wing and later the Monohansett, this property was an emblem of the Captain's success and enhanced by its prominent physical setting with surrounding decorative caste iron fencing. The architectural details, water views, spacious veranda, gleaming wood floors, 9’ ceilings, crown molding, and more will captivate the attention of the most discerning buyer. The historic port of Holmes Hole became Vineyard Haven in 1871 and later Tisbury. William Street was the second street laid out by the village in 1831 and has consistently maintained its look. Truly a rare, in-town, luxury opportunity, in turn-key condition - a property which needs to be seen to be appreciated. Furnishings available separately.
