Spacious West Chop House with Waterviews - The huge, sun-dappled porch on this family-friendly house, set within the West Chop “loop” in Vineyard Haven, is the perfect place to relax and watch the ferries sailing back and forth to Martha’s Vineyard. Just inside, the soaring great room – with its vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, hardwood floors, expansive windows, and views out to Nantucket Sound – offers a warm and welcoming gathering space. Five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a spacious eat-in country kitchen with adjacent dining room, and plenty of sitting areas throughout allow this much-loved home to accommodate a swell of visiting family and friends with room to spare. The bright and airy master suite upstairs has magnificent northeast views over the water, with a cathedral ceiling, comfortable sitting area, walk-in closet, and full bath. Near the master suite are a walk-through study and den/bedroom, another full bath, and a light-filled bedroom. There are two spacious bedrooms downstairs, together with a third full bath and a half bathroom. Built in 1988 and renovated in 2002, the house has mini-splits, a gas furnace, irrigation, and an outdoor shower, comfortable for year-round living and well-suited for holiday gatherings. Tucked away from Main Street atop a grassy slope overlooking the water, the house is set on .87 acres of quiet woodland and open lawn bordered by a stone wall and meadow plantings. It’s a rare offering in this location, right across the street from the West Chop Club’s Middle Pier and swimming beach. Close by are the West Chop Club, Vineyard Haven Yacht Club, Mink Meadows Golf Club, the 83-acre West Chop Woods nature preserve, and the classic 1891 West Chop lighthouse. Sailing, tennis, walking and running trails, biking, swimming, fishing, children’s activities, and more are close at hand. Please note that 125 Massasoit, an abutting property, is also for sale at $3.1M so enjoy a compound in the heart of West Chop. Contact listing agent for details about club memberships.
