Here is the in-town getaway compound you've dreamed of: As your seasonal vacation spot. Or as your year-round "secondary primary" home. Perhaps as your rental income magnet, too. Upgraded by successive owners, the property still honors the grace of the site's original 18th Century homestead, built for prominent Edgartown minister Joseph Thaxter. In the spirit of historic Edgartown, the current owners of this meticulously maintained property have upgraded the landscaping to garden-tour levels and re-opened the streetfront vistas to the appreciation of neighbors and passersby. The main house, built in 1970 and remodeled in 2004 by architect Pat Ahearn, features a lofty, open-concept great room with gourmet kitchen and wood-burning fireplace. The 2018 dining room addition offers egress to a sunny little patio for morning coffee. All four bedrooms -- two up, two down -- feature en suite baths and romantic gas fireplaces. One downstairs suite directly accesses the rear patio via French doors. Perfect for that right-out-of-bed dip in your 11x27 heated pool and spa. The two upstairs bedrooms each have private decks for basking in the sunshine. (The owner dubbed one suite "the McCartney Suite." Ask me why.) The Juliet balcony over the great room is a perfect spot for an office nook or for the children to spy on grownup conversations below. In the walkout lower level: Fully appointed studio quarters for the nanny, the caretaker or the collegian’s must-have hideaway. The 2018 improvements include a detached carriage house, with a one-car garage, storage spaces and an extra laundry room on the lower level. Above, a game room (or whatever you dream this bonus space to be) features a custom stone fireplace, wet bar and half bathroom. At ground level, a brick outdoor fireplace faces poolside, for cozy gatherings in the chilly shoulder seasons. You might never wish to leave home, but in case you do: Dinner in town is near to your doorstep, as is the bike path to South Beach. Included in the sale are the handsome furnishings -- darn near every convenience you could wish for, down to the lobster pot. Just move in and savor. NOTE: The quoted square footage (3607sf) combines the living areas of the main house, including finished basement area (2,791sf) and carriage house (816sf).
