This gorgeous renovated home in the village has panoramic views of Edgartown Harbor over Collins Beach. It was prominently featured in New England Home magazine after being renovated. See link: The magazine called the property a "quintessential Edgartown home updated with a relaxed beachy vibe." The stunning 180-degree harbor views are showcased from most areas of the house. After a top-to-bottom structural renovation, the home experienced a complete interior redesign in 2012 by Parker & Company. Stylish and sophisticated details are everywhere. The house lives larger than its square footage, thanks to the detached guest quarters with living area with kitchenette, bedroom, and sleeping loft with two built-in beds. For extra elbow room there is also extensive outdoor space, including a private courtyard patio, wraparound covered porch, and second floor decks. The master bedroom suite has a deck with outstanding water views up and down harbor. A guest bedroom suite enjoys those same spectacular harbor views. Plans have been drawn by Patrick Ahearn for a swimming pool, third floor bedroom suite, and boathouse renovation. Beyond the landscape design by Carly Look, the lawn stretches down to the property's boat house and the gate to the picket fence that leads to Collins Beach. House occupied until August 12 and thereafter is easy to show.
