A most distinguished property for a most discerning buyer - The oldest home on Martha's Vineyard built in l720 was known as the Timothy Chase House and is currently known as the 1720 House. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is located in the William Street Historic District. The pride of ownership will pass along to the next resident who will continue to respect the character and architecture of this most unique Island property. Little has been changed in the interior and the integrity of the architecture remains intact along with the prominent two brick chimneys. The beautiful floors, low ceilings and classic flow have been honored over the years. There are six bedrooms and 5.5 baths. The home is located behind a circular driveway removing it from the activity of Main Street. A quite garden with an incredibly large, vintage tree enhances the historic setting of the property which abuts William Street to the west. Location, location, location. The 1720 House has been operating as an inn however is the perfect historic home to be enjoyed by a very fortunate family. An inviting foyer with classic stairway sets the atmosphere of the home. A gracious room with fireplace to the left has been expanded over the years to create an unusually large living room. A three season sun porch behind looks out to the patio and private yard. The dining room is open to the right with a well placed powder room. The efficient kitchen is beyond the dining room with several other storage rooms and a shed. Returning to the foyer there is a gracious en suite bedroom with fireplace in the north wing. Adding a little more history, in Vineyard tradition, the house was moved from Lambert's Cove in l820 by boat and then hauled from the Harbor by a team of oxen to it's present location. For anyone who is familiar with an historic home, the flow of the second floor offers an intriguing but classic pattern. The size of the rooms are in keeping with the age of the building. There are two charming bedrooms in the north wing that share a bath. Another bedroom on the south side of the house has access to an abutting bathroom. Behind this bedroom is a gracious en suite bedroom. A walk down the hall leads to the private en suite sixth bedroom. The location on Main Street makes it a walk to everything within the Village; Owen Little Park for swimming, band concerts and evening films; the movie theater, restaurants, ice cream and the Net Result. No need to take your car to catch the ferry and the lobster rolls at the Grace Church provides dinner every summer Friday evening. Does this sound fabulous? It is.
