Located within 100 feet of one of the Vineyard's top beaches and with dramatic views of Vineyard sound all the way to Cape Pogue, this property is not what it appears! Originally built in 1873 this home has serviced many generations of the same family. In 1997 through 2003 an extensive renovation has been completed by the owner who is a successful Island contractor. He started with the removal of the old and the careful installation of a new title 5 septic. From there the home was re-suspended with new concrete piers and supports. Rather than loose the old world charm of the interior, all the walls were insulated on the outside of the home with rigid foam, a new layer of sheathing, new shingles and new windows. This type of renovation is more intricate and saves all the interior space.The roof was re-sheathed, completely covered in WR Grace Ice and Water shield and new Architectural roof shingles installed. All this has created a home that still retains the Old World charm yet is now structurally sound and insulated for year round use! With the home warm and sound a much needed garage with storage up above was added. Enjoy a glass of wine with friends on your private widow's walk pondering the stars over the ocean and wake up to the sound and smell of the ocean, make yourself a cup of coffee, walk to your morning swim and enjoy your coffee, still hot on your own private covered porch, because you are just steps to the water!
