A rare opportunity to own a Classic Shingle-Style home sited on the rugged coastline of the Fox Islands Thorofare--the well known east-west passage between Vinalhaven and North Haven islands. Surrounded by rosa rugosa, lupine and other indigenous plantings, this comfortable 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home is year-round and has all the impeccable details one expects in a house designed by Bernard & Preistley and built by Peter Conant. The first floor includes a spacious kitchen overlooking the ocean, dining room with doors onto the waterside deck, living room with granite fireplace, spacious den, primary bedroom, full bath, laundry room, powder room, and ubiquitous mud room. A lovely staircase leads upstairs to 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a large bonus room currently used as a family rec room. Tasteful details throughout include custom cabinetry by Matthew Berta, high quality windows and doors, hardwood floors, Douglas fir kitchen, and more. Outside are over 2 acres of land, an outdoor shower, and many perennial plantings that contribute to the timeless appeal of the property overall. Nearby is a sweet rocky beach on public land that is ideal for swimming, picnicking, and launching a kayak. A public dock is just a short drive away and is an ideal place to keep a dingy to access a mooring in the Thorofare. This is a handsome year-round home with some of the best westerly views to be found located right in the heart of sailing country!
