Located on a winding private road, this original 1896 West Chop waterfront home was completely renovated to exacting standards in 1992. With 8 bedrooms and 6 and a half bathrooms, and a classical layout with formal and informal areas in which to relax and pass the time, this home encompasses all that this desirable location provides for family gatherings and summer memories at West Chop. A stately front entrance leads to the formal living room with adjoining separate sitting room, with fireplace, that opens to the expansive water facing porch providing active views of the Vineyard Sound and additional entertaining space to while away a lazy summer afternoon. The home offers an exceptional combination of elegant charm and modern amenities including the large gourmet kitchen breakfast room, with Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, bespoke cabinetry and a butler's pantry that leads through to the formal dining room. The staircase leads to a large primary bedroom suite with a full bath, office and balcony overlooking the water. Three further bedrooms and 2 additional bathrooms occupy the remainder of the second floor with 4 further bedrooms and 3 baths on the third floor. The huge walk out basement was created during the renovation, and could be finished to create living space for a wine cellar, family room or gym. The home was fully air conditioned in 2019 and there is potential to add a pool. Directly in front of the property is a beautiful private conservation trust protected beach ideal for sunning, swimming, tide rides to the dock, kayaking, fishing and of course breathtaking water views and dreamy sunsets. This is a rare opportunity to buy in the heart of West Chop.
