Located in the heart of historic Edgartown, with expansive views across to the Edgartown Lighthouse, Chappaquiddick and Vineyard Sound, this unique two-home, waterfront compound on historic Edgartown Harbor was designed by Twanette Tharp, one of the Vineyard’s leading designers.

Anchored by a private cobblestone courtyard and lush privet hedges, the compound features two residences, The Captain Dexter House with four bedrooms, and The Ferry House with three bedrooms.

The spacious mahogany sun decks have so much to offer — you can dine, entertain, read a book, sunbathe or just watch boats go by on the harbor. Can’t you imagine yourself there?
In addition to the sun decks, both residences also have dockside decks for outdoor dining and entertaining. There is also a deluxe built-in grilling area.
Rounding out this special waterfront offering is a private dock slip that will accommodate a powerboat up to 17 feet. It allows for easy access for boating, fishing and/or for accessing a larger boat moored in the harbor (a mooring may be secured through the Edgartown Harbormaster).
In addition to the two waterfront homes, the compound includes a separate Studio. It is located across the cobblestone courtyard, perfect as an in-home office or art studio.
