Video of 86 School Street | Edgartown Massachusetts real estate & homes by Sandpiper Realty

0 – Welcome to 86 School Street, a classic historic house located on a quiet corner of School and High Street, on a well-designed lot with .21 acre of mature, manicured lawn and gardens.

The home, which was thoughtfully restored and expanded, sits graciously on School Street with enough room for a pleasant patio for the main house and the two guest buildings with a patio at the back of the lot; the ultimate well-designed use of a fabulous parcel of land in a fabulous location.

The historic design of the main house follows tradition. A long, narrow home that moves through many functional rooms and a quiet wing on the left side for a spacious master suite. The entrance takes you directly into the formal, inviting living room with fireplace that is washed in the sunshine. The living room opens to a family/game room.

The formal dining room and efficient kitchen and laundry are at the rear of the house. A door off the dining room leads to the patio for summer dining.

Just off the game room is another sitting area separate enough to participate in a different activity. Beyond this sitting area is a small office that opens up to the master bedroom and bath. This area can be completely closed off for privacy.

A traditional stairway at the entrance leads to the second level with three bedrooms and a bath. Typical of the era, a back stair way from the back bedroom leads to the dining room on the first floor.

The historic design of the main house is changed as you visit the guest cottages built in 2006 at the back of the yard. There are few Village homes that offer such diversity in such a premier location. Quiet, but close, 86 School Street is just a short walk to the harbor, galleries, ice cream shops and fine restaurants. The property is in the Edgartown Historic District.

Two guest cottages built in 2006, have 903 sf each, gas heat and AC. The footprint of each building is the same however the use of each building is creatively different. Cathedral ceilings, many windows and wood floors create a spacious, pleasant interior. The cottage on the left is a large master bedroom with sitting area and a bank of windows overlooking the yard and gardens. There is a spacious, well designed bathroom and separate laundry room. The other cottage is designed as a studio with another cathedral ceiling and many windows with the addition of a fireplace, small kitchenette and a comfortable bath. A separate brick patio is located at the front of the buildings and provides private space for guests.

The main home and cottages can be enjoyed as is, however architect Patrick Ahearn has visited the property and has a number of recommendations to convert it to a Patrick Ahearn “Urban Island Village Compound” to accommodate today’s lifestyle.
