Description

Majestic single family water view home plus guest house in the heart of the William Street Historic District with superb Bracketed-Italianate style, known as the Captain Benjamin Cromwell House and later the Clough House. This commanding period home with perfectly proportioned cross gable and cupola, is year-round, impeccably renovated and maintained, and in move-in condition. Amenities include 6 bedrooms, 5 baths, oil heat, a/c,1,100+/- s.f. third floor loft, cupola, and cabin/guest house with studio bedroom, kitchenette, full bath,a/c, Rinnai heat, 2 car garage, outside shower, and original out house on .66 manicured grounds. As the captain of the Island Line transportation service between New Bedford, the Vineyard, and Nantucket with his steam-powered side-wheelers, the Eagle's Wing and later the Monohansett, this property was an emblem of Captain Cromwell's success and enhanced by its prominent physical setting with surrounding ornate caste iron fencing. The architecture, water views, spacious front veranda approximately 440 s.f., interior spaces with 9' and 10' ceilings, crown molding, gleaming antique wood floors, horse hair plaster, and history will captivate the attention of the most discerning buyer. The original village of Holmes Hole became the town of Vineyard Haven in 1871 and later the town of Tisbury. William Street was the second street originally laid out by the village in approximately 1831. The William Street Historic District is unique in that it has consistently maintained its look with its historic 19th century homes. Truly a rare, in-town opportunity with access to the park, deep water dock, beach, harbor, and clay tennis courts only steps away. In summary, this property needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Please read floor descriptions for more details.
