Tucked down an unassuming driveway and invisible from the street, this 19th century Cape is just steps from Vineyard Haven's year-round shopping and cultural center. Terrace after terrace unfolds as you descend toward the waterfront through the lovely 2/3-acre compound, culminating in 68 feet of beach on the inner harbor.
The main house, built around 1825, has four bedrooms plus an office/bedroom, three-and-a-half baths and five fireplaces. Harbor views abound from many vantage points, with character-filled features including wide board floors and extensive wainscoting, broad-silled windows, plaster walls and low ceilings. A seven-bedroom septic was installed in 2013.
The property boasts many extras: a garden shed, detached one-car garage, large harborview porch with arched beadboard ceiling, and lush, mature gardens. A secret gate provides access to Owen Park with its town wharf and gazebo. Near the harbor is a boathouse with brick fireplace, built-in bunkbeds, barrel-ceilinged interior with natural wood, tiny bath and kitchenette. The peaceful private beach, perfect for crabbing, kayaking and contemplation, crowns this property where future memories are waiting to be made.
