This spacious 1872 Victorian sits in an historic district, footsteps from the ferry and in the heart of downtown Oak Bluffs. The house is just one block from the restaurants, boutiques, markets, busy harbor, town emblem Ocean Park, historic Carousel and ornate "gingerbread" houses that make this colorful and cultured town famous. Also one block away, in the other direction, are stretches of lifeguard patrolled town beach. A car is unnecessary here, where all of Oak Bluffs is at your doorstep.
This nine room home has 5 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, with polished hardwood floors throughout. The spacious high-ceilinged living room with its elegant mantle, built-in bookshelves, and tall windows, opens onto a dining room with a ceiling fan, charming built in china cabinet and a table that can extend to seat as many as 14.
At the back of the house is a spacious kitchen that has been freshly painted - the cabinets and wainscoting in a "beachie" bright blue and filled with jade green dishes and colorful serving-ware. The kitchen is equipped with all new appliances, and features all the tools for a gourmet chef. A built-in ironing board and sunlit breakfast nook add to the charm, and the connected pantry houses the dishwasher, laundry and more storage. The first floor boasts a brand new bathroom, updated to include stone tiles, calming colors, a new shower stall, and all new fixtures.
Of the 5 bedrooms, 1 is on the first floor. This has a window seat decked with cozy cushions, a double bed and antique turquoise dresser. Up the front staircase, with its "gingerbread" handrail and balustrades, you’ll find the other 4 bedrooms. Freshly painted, with antique dressers and accents in each, all bedrooms are bright, fresh and airy. The recently renovated second floor bathroom features a custom-built vanity - an artful recreation of an old-fashioned wash-stand: a porcelain bowl sink atop an antique marble counter, supported by lovely turned legs.
The comfort and amenities of the home's interior are complemented by the generous seating set on the wide wrap-around front porch, which offers views of Nantucket sound. The porch is the perfect setting for a summertime barbeque, with the propane grill provided there. Around the back of the house is a commodious and private outdoor shower, and there is off-street parking for 2 cars in the driveway.
