It is not a location for everyone, but most who arrive on the small and quaint island of Cuttyhunk will understand why people from around the country find it to be a treasured place to call home, either all year long or for the summer season.
High, atop a hill—facing the mainland, a rare opportunity to own a turn-key home with the most dramatic view imaginable, awaits a buyer who wants a sense of community and privacy simultaneously.
A walk or golf cart ride to greet the ferry, or a side trip to the docks where fresh seafood, sweets, and other delights can be found, will end up becoming a social event almost anytime during the day or evening.
A new owner of this handsome home will become part of the island’s heritage. Famous writers, photographers, artists, and financial wizards, have at some point called Cuttyhunk home. Now the island is looking for another laid-back creative type, or a high-pressured executive looking to dress down in a polo shirt, shorts, and boat shoes, while ‘on-island.’
The primary amenity that draws interest to the Cuttyhunk—and this particular home—is its panoramic views from every room, and the level of privacy consequent
to its unique location.
From one side, an owner can enjoy breakfast on the deck while watching a local lobsterman pull his traps or a fleet of sailors cruising from Long Island Sound to Buzzards Bay. Opposite of the property are southern views of the ferry dock, the old Coast Guard Station, and vessels making their way into the mooring field. Beyond are the most incredible views of Vineyard Sound, the island of Martha’s Vineyard, Gay Head Light, and the famous fishing village of Menemsha.
What makes 255 Blue Heron Drive so attractive is its secrecy and location; sitting at a high elevation, the property stands out of the floodplain, still offering the sound of the surf touching the shore and the fresh smell of the salt air.
The two-story custom residence sits on over 2-acres of land.The home was built in 2015 for either seasonal or at-will occupancy, and boasts 3,313 square-feet of island lifestyle. There are three-bedrooms, two full baths, one-half baths and ample storage for supplies and personal possessions.
Typical of an island house, there is an outdoor shower and room to build or expand for even greater enjoyment.
The home is waiting for a family to span generations and build a wealth of memories—from catching that first bass to a wedding on the lawn. 255 Blue Heron Drive, Cuttyhunk Island, Massachusetts, is being offered for $1,695,000 and represented by Slater Anderson, (O) 617-357-8990 / (C) 978-828-7557, and Terry Boyle (O) 617-723-1800 / (C) 617-821-7745 of LandVest Real Estate – Timberland / Christie’s International Real Estate.
