IN-TOWN LUXURY CHIC RETREAT: HISTORIC CAPTAIN'S HOUSE WITH WATER VIEWS AND POOL. Built originally by Edgartown's first whaling family in 1795, the Samuel Butler House has been transformed by Cannada Design Architects into one of the premier luxury homes in Edgartown Village. This stunning Captain's Home features luxurious styling and period details throughout, including custom raised paneling and moldings plus wide-planked flooring. The first floor is comprised of a formal Living Room and Dining Room, both designed for gracious entertaining. Casual everyday living is centered around the Great Room which combines a gourmet cook's kitchen, casual eating space, built-in bar and butler's pantry -- plus a comfortable lounge area with TV and fireplace. The home has been smartly designed to integrate indoor and outdoor living; the Great Room opens out to a covered living and dining portico with outdoor fireplace, a heated Pebble Tec pool with granite terrace and lush landscaped gardens. The home features a total of five spacious bedrooms, each with en suite bath, including the Master Bedroom Suite with vaulted ceilings, a luxurious spa-like bathroom and French doors that open onto a mahogany deck. The finished walk-out basement includes an additional 1,123-square-feet of living space, including one of the bedroom suites, and is accessible through the Main House OR its own private entrance off North Water Street, making it an ideal opportunity for in-home office, gallery/boutique or apartment. Finally, the rooftop widow's walk is the perfect spot to enjoy warm summer afternoons and the spectacular sweeping views across Edgartown Harbor. Combine all this with exquisite furnishings which are available for turnkey purchase and you have the ultimate in carefree and luxurious in-town living. It's all move-in ready . . . and of course, all the best of the village is just outside the front door.
