125 Main Street
Located at the edge of Downtown Vineyard Haven, this 3-bedroom home sits overlooking Vineyard Sound and Owen Park. The home dates back to 1870 and has been impeccably maintained by each generation of the same family since it was constructed.
Owen Park abuts this property on two sides. This historic park in the heart of Vineyard Haven is one of the few public docks and access points to the water as well as to Vineyard Haven Harbor. It is enjoyed by sailors coming and going, families visiting the beach, and the site of the occasional summer concert under the gazebo.
The house has been meticulously maintained and is a glimpse back in history. There are even photos inside of the house with a horse and buggy out from before Main Street was paved. All of the large pane windows are original and still have the distinctive “wavy” glass. The grand staircase that greets you when you enter the front door has not changed and neither have many of the wide plank wood floors.
While a new owner will be looking to make updates to this home, the history, character, and location are one of a kind. This landmark Vineyard Haven property will continue to offer accessibility to town, open space, and the water for years to come. It is just waiting for the next owner to put their mark on it.
