Home of the Week: A Grand Victorian Home on Martha’s Vineyard

In our newest ‘Home of the Week‘ we move from a one level masterpiece in Mesa, Arizona to Martha’s Vineyard for a peak inside a Victorian home with park and ocean views.

U.S. Presidents, Hollywood heavy hitters and countless others flock to the inviting shores of Martha’s Vineyard to vacation during the summer – and homes like this 19th century gem are a huge reason why!

Located on Ocean Avenue, this $3,650,000  dollar home has been immaculately renovated with an unparalleled attention to detail and craftsmanship. The thoughtful renovation to the exterior is plain to see and appreciate, but it also extends to the inside of this 4 bedroom home. Besides outfitting the kitchen with restaurant quality kitchen appliances, the main living area now boasts an open floor plan perfect for large gatherings with family and friends.

A hallmark of this grand Victorian home are the two separate wrap around porches that are tailor-made for soaking in sunsets and the ocean views while enjoying some food or a cup of coffee. Access to the porches isn’t just granted through the main entrances, as 3 out of the 4 en-suite bedrooms enjoy spectacular water views and access to those beautifully detailed porches.

This home built in 1880 has been fully renovated, but there is still something special from that bygone era that permeates these walls and grounds. This rare find can be a place you and your family enjoy for generations to come – a haven on the shores of Martha’s Vineyard to enjoy quiet time together in a world where it’s hard to find true quiet time together.
