109 School Street is a beautiful property in downtown Edgartown. The home is located 5 blocks from the Edgartown courthouse and 4 blocks to Collins beach on the top of peaceful School Street. The house sits high on the property and 30ft above sea level for additional privacy from the street and hurricane protection. The building is said to have been inhabited by Herman Melville’s granddaughter and was built in the late 1800s. It was built in the traditional colonial style and portions of the property were renovated in the 1970s; selected rooms including the living room, dining room and first floor bathroom were updated within the last decade. To become a premier Edgartown property, the house would require a significant overhaul. This property would be best for a contractor, or real estate investor who has the experience necessary to renovate to all bathrooms, bedrooms and common areas. Alternatively, a family willing to invest resources in a significant fixer-upper project would work. The current owner has lived at 109 School Street since 1984. One wing of the house was previously used as a dental office and an apartment on the back side of the house is currently rented.
