50 Oyster Watcha Road, Edgartown
Offered at $11,950,000
50 Oyster Watcha is one of the most extraordinary settings on Martha’s Vineyard. This property on Edgartown’s south shore has hosted first families and captains of industry, poets and politicians. Few can resist its charms. The house and guesthouse have sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean over Oyster Pond and the barrier beach. The views are by all accounts the finest ocean views from any home in Oyster Watcha Midlands, as this was the first lot created in this community and was intended to be the “jewel in the crown.”The property includes an impeccably maintained 4-bedroom main house, 2–bedroom guesthouse, and boathouse. From the main house the pond, dunes, and Atlantic Ocean are beautifully framed, and you can see and hear the surf rolling onto the beach. Water views from the guesthouse showcase the dunes and Atlantic Ocean over the westernmost cove of Oyster Pond. The interiors of the 1,200 sq ft guesthouse are bright, open, and airy. While the existing structures are immaculate and extremely well-maintained, there is also vast scope for creating a compound of newer structures on the site. This is a canvas any architect would relish. A viewing stand located closer to the ocean designates the optimal location for a new, much larger main house.
