RENOVATED CAPTAIN'S HOME MERGES HISTORIC AND MODERN ELEMENTS. Steeped with history and beautifully renovated inside and out by Hutker Architects in 2013, this 1860's gem is situated on a large corner lot in the heart of Edgartown Village. Known as the Captain Ellsworth West House, the home's historic connections coupled with its impeccable quality and lush gardens would be sufficient to make this one of the finest homes in the village -- but add to that, its characterful styling and beautifully curated vintage details and this property is really something special. This expansive retreat is comprised of a Main House, with four floors of living spaces -- plus a private covered porch with wood-burning fireplace overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds, which is the perfect place to relax with a book or enjoy a quiet fireside evening in the summer. The detached two-story Carriage House features a pool cabana with an inside lounge area plus French doors that open out to a private outdoor living area with gunite pool, built-in whirlpool spa and bluestone terrace with additional poolside lounging. This rare property includes over 7,000 square feet of living space and is a perfect in-town compound for discerning buyers who are seeking a spacious and comfortable home for gathering family and friends -- and creating treasured memories for years to come.
