The Captain Dexter House, ca. 1843, has a storied history. Originally owned by one of the Island whaling captains, this home has had several iterations, including the most recent in 2004 when a 3 story addition completed the restoration of this charming historic residence set in the heart of the seaside village of Vineyard Haven. The restoration included the preservation of the original architectural details while bringing the home into the present century with the addition of the country kitchen including a large center island and top of the line appliances, informal dining area and family room with a fireplace and access to the garden patio. Conveniences include a walk-in pantry, powder room and full bath, and laundry room. Formal and informal living areas can be found throughout the house as well as seven bedrooms and six and one-half baths. There are five working fireplaces including the master bedroom suite. All mechanical systems have been completely updated including central AC. Exterior living areas feature a balcony off the second floor sitting area, covered porch with views of the harbor, newly fenced bluestone patio with mature plantings, tiered perennial gardens and private parking for 3 cars. Theater, restaurants, boating and the beach are within footsteps of this gracious in-town residence. Walk to the library and elementary school.
