Built originally by Edgartown's first whaling family in 1795, the Samuel Butler House has been transformed by Cannada Design Architects into one of the premier luxury homes in Edgartown Village.
This stunning Captain's Home features luxurious styling and period details throughout, including custom raised paneling and moldings plus original, wide-planked flooring. The first floor is comprised of a formal Living Room and Dining Room, both designed for gracious entertaining.
Casual everyday living is centered around the Great Room which combines a Gourmet Cook's Kitchen, casual eating space, built-in bar and butler's pantry -- plus a comfortable Lounge Area with TV, fireplace, and seating.
The home has been smartly designed to integrate indoor and outdoor living. The Great Room opens out to a covered Living and Dining Portico with outdoor fireplace, a heated 12x19-foot gunite pool with granite terrace and lush landscaped gardens.
The Samuel Butler House features a total of six spacious Bedrooms, each with en suite bath, including the Master Bedroom with vaulted ceilings, a luxurious spa-like Master Bath with two-person glass walk-in shower and soaking tub, plus a private mahogany deck. Two other bedroom suites share the second floor, and another occupies the third floor, which also has its own Lounge and TV area with built-in seating.
There are two Bedroom Suites on the lower level as well. One includes its own private entrance off North Water Street.
Finally, the rooftop widow's walk is the perfect spot to enjoy warm summer afternoons and the spectacular sweeping views across Edgartown Harbor. If you prefer to head into town, all the best of the village is literally just outside the front door.
