Suitable for boats with a 3-foot draft, the waterway offers access to Vineyard Sound. The property also comes with an additional acre of restricted conservation land. Inside, the living room boasts 18-foot ceilings and a view so captivating you may overlook the fireplace. Envisioning parties is easy as the space flows into the kitchen and dining area. Head to the deck from a slider. Nearby there’s a guest bedroom and bath. Upstairs, the master’s view of the Vineyard is even more dramatic, and its bath is separated into bathing and dressing areas. CONS Updates are needed in the finished walkout basement.
