Step Into History: Edgartown Village Home with Distinctive Heritage - This historic residence situated in the heart of the town offers a multitude of attractions. You can leisurely walk to the array of shops and dining establishments, enjoy the view of the 4th of July parade from the front porch, or take a dip at nearby Fuller Street Beach. This residence unfolds across two floors. The first floor boasts a well-appointed kitchen, an elegant dining room that sets the stage for memorable meals and conversations, and a formal living room. Additionally, there is a versatile room on the same level that can transform into a mudroom, a cozy TV room, or a productive home office, adapting to your lifestyle. On this floor, you'll also find a bedroom, complemented by a full bathroom that was updated with the 2016 renovation. Step onto the enclosed porch off the front of the house, a serene space to enjoy the village ambiance or indulge in quiet moments. The original proprietor, Henry Kelly, played a pivotal role in the rescue operation that saved a captain and his crew from the ill-fated ship, the Mertie B. Crowley. The vessel succumbed to a fierce storm off Chappaquiddick in 1910. In recognition of his heroism, Kelly was honored with the Carnegie medal and a monetary prize, which he utilized to construct his family's dwelling. Throughout its history, the property has seen only a handful of owners, each of whom has upheld the exceptional nature of the home with care and reverence. Notably scarce within the village, the house offers ample parking. A delightful brick patio provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining. Under the current ownership, a series of enhancements have been made. Please inquire for the comprehensive list of improvements.
