An exceptional West Chop waterfront home. This grand 1896-built home sits beachfront amongst lush, landscaped gardens in a private North Shore community. Spacious and elegant, the home boasts 8 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, including the master suite with four-poster bed, fireplace, private bath, office and large sundeck. There are multiple sitting rooms to accommodate a large family or guests, a formal dining room and an updated kitchen. One of the best features is the expansive covered porch overlooking the grounds and Vineyard Sound. Watch the Steamship ferries and harbor boat traffic pass by each day. The sandy path leads you to the waters edge where you be amongst the few on the private beach. Even in the height of the summer, you will leave the traffic and hustle & bustle of downtown behind when you head out to West Chop. This is truly a special property.
