WEST CHOP BEACHFRONT CHARMER WITH GUEST COTTAGE and STUDIO. Sited on a quiet and private lane in West Chop, this wonderful 1900's gem is sited on an acre of exquisite park-like grounds that border the West Chop Trust Beach, creating a special and private sanctuary near the sea. Boasting delightful and charming architectural features of the era, the home offers a warm and inviting style -- as well as spacious indoor and outdoor living areas ideal for entertaining family and friends. The property is comprised of a 5-Bedroom Main House, a 1-Bedroom Guest Cottage and a separate Studio with fitness room and dry sauna. The property can be enjoyed as-is or transformed into a signature waterfront compound (conceptual renderings are available). Located within walking distance to the West Chop Club, within close proximity to Mink Meadows Golf Club and just two miles to downtown Vineyard Haven, this property offers all the essentials for a perfect island lifestyle. NOTE: This special West Chop property is part of a larger 1.56-acre, three-home estate, which is also being offered as a combined ensemble for $13,490,000. See LINK ID#36803 for details.

The Ground Level is comprised of a sleeping wing with four bedrooms and two full baths. The bedrooms feature wonderful cottage-style detailing such as painted tongue-and-groove paneling, exposed ceiling rafters, corner fireplaces -- and there is access to an expansive screened porch, which is an ideal gathering place during the summer for playing games and reading books.

The heart of the home is the expansive Great Room, with vaulted ceilings, tongue-and-groove paneling, a massive wood-burning fireplace, built-in window seats and bookshelves and a bank of large picture that perfectly frame the stunning water views. The Great Room opens up to a large second-floor deck with superlative 180-degree views of Vineyard Sound, and a retractable awning that makes it an idyllic spot for alfresco dining, lounging with a book, or watching a brilliant summer evening sunset. There is a formal Dining Room with brick floors and a handsome wood-burning fireplace -- and a sunny eat-in Kitchen bathed in sunlight and with access to a small side porch, a perfect place for morning coffee with water views. There is also a Family Room/Study and Laundry Room.

A half-flight of stairs leads from the Living Room to a third-floor bedroom with vaulted ceiling, v-groove paneling and a full bath.

The detached Guest Cottage is loaded with charm and is privately sited away from the Main House. The property features hardwood floors, tongue-and-groove paneling, vaulted ceilings, a built-in window seat, a wood-burning fireplace and wet bar with sink, mini fridge and microwave. There is also a detached Studio building with a dry sauna that is used as a Fitness Room.
