Overview

This extraordinary waterfront home sits on a bluff overlooking beautiful Lagoon Pond with views spanning from Eastville Point Beach to the south and Vineyard Haven Harbor and beyond to the north. This is a one-of-a kind property with expansive views, privacy, yet easy access to Vineyard Haven. The home is sited on a total of 3 acres of land, rare for waterfront property, with a landscaped lawn, lush gardens and plantings around the home, a fire pit, hammocks, rope swing and shady, green oak trees. The property features a total of 270 feet of beachfront on Lagoon Pond. The home is a classic Victorian, built in the 1870’s as part of the Innisfall Inn, a summer resort that attracted actors, opera singers, and musicians. The home has been thoughtfully renovated to include updated amenities. The kitchen has been expanded, including a loft above; and an 800 square foot master bedroom suite including private bath, walk-through closet, and an office alcove with Lagoon views added. The generous porch was enlarged to wrap around the new living space, including a painting porch with a sink nestled into the garden. The exterior gable filigree trim and porch of the new construction were carefully matched to the original design of 150 years ago. A guest cottage and storage shed were built as well as two spacious outdoor showers under a floral arbor. The property includes a large parking area and Tesla charger. The interior of the house radiates happiness, with cheerful accents of color grounded by crisp white paint. The charming character of the home remains with the exposed joists, board walls, open ceilings, keeping the feel of the Victorian cottage intact. In Celtic, “Innisfall” means “the abode of peace and rest”, an accurate description of the tranquility and beauty of this property. Downtown Vineyard Haven is a 15 minute walk or short bike ride on the very lightly trafficked Weaver Lane. The waterfront has a nice beach for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and deep water boating. The property consists of two adjacent lots, so a second home could be built to create a very private family compound, or the lot could be sold to another buyer, or kept as an expansive lawn. A second septic system was installed to facilitate permitting of a second home. The home sits on a 1.57 acre lot with 120 feet of beachfront, and the adjoining second lot is 1.39 acres with 150 feet of beachfront.
