Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Nestled close to the heart of Edgartown village, at the corner of High and School Street, this charming historical home is situated on Martha’s Vineyard Island, renowned for its wonderful beaches, fine food, and great fun.

Wonderfully restored and expanded, the spacious main house was built in the late 1600’ s; the main house is now part of a compound, with two lovely new guest cottages perfect for extended families, several couples, or groups of friends.

Kid and pet friendly, the main house has lovely hardwood floors, beautiful antiques and 4 bedrooms with air-conditioning. One of the cottages features a second master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi tub and the other has a living area with pullout sofa bed, fireplace, kitchenette and a private bathroom with a great shower. Both cottages have central air-conditioning.

The entire compound has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a private, fenced-in lawn and garden with two patio areas, catching morning and evening sun, perfect for outdoor dining on those beautiful Vineyard summer days. The jacuzzi is great for waking up, after a run, or an evening glass of wine.

It is just a short walk to the harbor, galleries, ice cream shops and fine restaurants. The home also offers high-speed Internet wireless, cable TV (4 TV’s, with 2 DVD and 1 cassette player), phone with free US long distance, and beach chairs, boogie boards & toys for nearby beaches.

A quick stroll and you are in town, yet you have a quiet private oasis away from the lively bustle when you want it. Heading for a walk or a jog in another direction, you are at the harbor, or out in the country, exploring the beach or Morning Glory Farm, or picking up scones and that morning paper, or sandwiches and drinks for the beach, or seafood for dinner.

The best part of the Vineyard is at your fingertips.

About Patricia Ravenscroft

We have been coming to Martha's Vineyard all our lives, and love the wonderful beaches, and the chance to sail, play tennis and golf, go fishing and shell fishing and crabbing, and explore the ponds and estuaries by kayak, and the nature preserves by foot. From the 'Flying Horses' carousel, 4th of July fireworks, and Illumination Night in Oak Bluffs, the 'Black Dog' schooner trips in Vineyard Haven, or the parade and yacht races in Edgartown, we cherish the life here. Local fairs and markets abound, art shows and antiquing flourish, and wonderful restaurants are delight us. The life here is rich and varied, something we like to share with extended families or groups of friends, so that they can fall in love with the Vineyard as we have.

Patricia Ravenscroft purchased this house in 1969

Why Patricia Ravenscroft chose Edgartown Area

This is our family summer home, not just a rental house, a warm and comfortable place, well-appointed but much lived in, a place for children and families, and well behaved dogs (fenced in back yard), with many memories, and new ones to be made, for kids and parents and grandparents, or in laws, especially since we have added two lovely tasteful but more modern cottages, giving privacy, and togetherness, for teens, for in-laws, for other couples, in a quiet part of Edgartown, but just minutes from all the restaurants and entertainment, that cup of coffee, those special sandwiches, those ice cream cones, a drink, dancing, and remarkable dining.

Wonderful family home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay for Fourth of July week. The property was perfect for our family reunion, with plenty of space for 9 adults and 3 small kids. The main house is charming and warm with lovely touches. The cottages in the back are great for grown kids. We all enjoyed the lawn with croquet, soccer, whifle ball, etc and used the grill several nights for dinner. The location is perfect - an easy walk to shops and restaurants, and set far enough back from the downtown area that you still get peace and privacy. We will definitely be back!

Charming house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Edgartown property last June. It was perfect for what we were looking for; very spacious and comfortable for a large group. The location was ideal and within walking distance to town. The backyard was a wonderful spot to catch some sun and play yard games. The carriage house was a great addition for extra space. The owners were responsive and easy to work with. We were grateful to find their home as it was the perfect spot for our group of friends to stay while attending our friend's wedding. We made lots of great memories in this home! Thanks so much!

A True Delight

  • 5 of 5

This offers has a lot to offer: space: it goes on and on. Perfect for large families. Location: you can walk everywhere. Charm: old time charm in the main house and modern touches in the 2 cottages. We only stayed for 3 nights because we were attending a family wedding in September. I would love to go back!

Lovely Stay, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming spacious house for a wedding on the island. The house is just as described, and the cottages made for an ideal set up for our large group of adults, toddlers and an infant. The owners were quick to respond, gracious and incredibly helpful and the house manager got back to us immediately when we reached out with a question. The house was clean and the check-in/check-out was seamless. The house location is perfect -- within walking distance of downtown. I'd recommend the house and would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional house for a island getaway, especially for a large group. Our whole family (9 adults and 3 kids) stayed here in July and had a fabulous stay. Great location with access within a short walk to beaches, town, trails and restaurants. The house and cottages are very well appointed and well kept. Great central lawn area for eating outdoors, playing with the kids, and an epic evening of glow in the dark bocce ball, we even played a great soft ball game in the rain.
