A classic historic house located on a quiet corner of School and High Street on a well-designed lot with .21 acres of mature, manicured lawn and gardens. The home which was thoughtfully restored and expanded sits graciously on School Street with enough room for a pleasant patio for the main house and two guest buildings with patio at the back of the lot; the ultimate well-designed use of a fabulous parcel of land in a fabulous location.
The historic design of the main house follows tradition. A long, narrow home that moves through many functional rooms and a quiet wing on the left side for a spacious master suite. The entrance takes you directly into the formal, inviting living room with fireplace that is washed in sunshine. The living room opens to a family/game room. To the left of the game room is another sitting area separate enough to participate in a different activity. Beyond this sitting area is a small office that opens up to the master bedroom and bath. This area can be completely closed off for privacy. Returning to the game room, the formal dining room and efficient kitchen and laundry are at the back of the house. A door off the dining room leads to the patio for summer dining.
A traditional stairway at the entrance leads to the second floor with three bedrooms and a bath. Typical of the era, a back stairway from the back bedroom leads to the dining room on the first floor.
The historic design of the main house is changed as you visit the two detached bedroom suites built in 2006 at the back of the yard. There are few Village homes that offer such diversity in such a well-designed setting. Quiet but close, 86 School Street is just a short walk to the harbor, galleries, ice cream shops and fine restaurants. The property is in the Edgartown Historic District.
