Description

Located on the private island of Oyster Harbors, and overlooking Nantucket Sound and Martha's Vineyard, one of Cape Cod's original homes presides over its location as vestige of a bygone era. Complete privacy is assured with almost 7. 5 acres on an elevated bluff. The water view encompasses 270 degrees. The site includes multiple buildings on three separate buildable lots. ''Scallop Path'', as the property is known, is now available for sale for the first time in almost 50 years. The main house, with 7 bedrooms and 5 full baths, is believed to have been moved across Cotuit Bay from the mainland to Oyster Harbors in the 18th century. The core of the home may date to as early as 1680 and some features certainly reflect that history. The sizable central chimney houses a passageway where the occupants could safely hide, perhaps during King Phillip's War. In all the buildings have 8 fireplaces. Restored by a well-known family in the 1970's the home and guest house were modernized to include central air conditioning and other modern features. Perhaps the property's most renowned feature are the gardens.

Supplements: Flower gardens, herb and vegetable gardens were all designed by one of country's most famous horticulturalists. This same individual actually redesigned the White House gardens in the 1960's. A guest house from the 1970's contains two separate bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry. Other buildings on the site include classic architectural features. A woodshed is a point of focus while functioning as a working shed. The boathouse and garage are connected to each other by a breezeway overlooking a secluded cove. While the property currently contains 5,894 square feet of living space, architect Patrick Ahearn has filmed a video to discuss what the future may hold for the site. New owners will be able to create a sanctuary of their own in what many view as a picturesque paradise from another time.
