Presenting one of the most outstanding real estate assets on Martha's Vineyard. 1005 Main Street was built in 1891 and purchased in 1948 by the Singer family who have owned it since. The setting is front and center in West Chop and includes a large private beach and 210-degree views so expansive that you can enjoy sunrises and sunsets from the same chaise lounge on the deck. The views are extremely active with ferries and fishing boats passing in the distance, sailboat races, and at closer range smaller craft including perhaps your own children in a laser or kayak. There are 8 large bedrooms, 7 full baths, and a 2-bedroom apartment in the lower level. The home still exudes olde worlde charm despite all 5,050 sq ft having been completely renovated between 1995 and 2005 with new insulation, HVAC system, and updated plumbing and electric. The 400 ft of private beach is a rare asset, and the walkway down to it has been trod by many who have come to love this home and incomparable setting. Of course, with its multiple decks and spectacular views, the home has always been a prime location for entertaining friends and family and so it is helpful to have so much parking - eight spaces plus a two-car garage. The sea wall assures that this property will be here for future generations. Owners may apply separately for membership at the West Chop Club, which offers a wide range of amenities, including use of nearby "middle pier" for loading and unloading.
