Modern Marvel in Woods Hole - Walk to town & ferry
Beautiful modern masterpiece down a quiet street with quick access to Woods Hole, Shining Sea Bikeway, and the Vineyard ferry. This architecturally significant house was designed by the renowned postmodern architect Charles Moore and built in 1969. An addition providing ample entertaining space - including a dining room, den, loft, and roof deck - was completed in 2021, along with top to bottom refinishing of all rooms. This house has mid-century charm in spades with all the modern conveniences. The house offers 4 bedrooms each with a queen bed and private full bathroom, and each on its own level that provides ample privacy for those sharing this impressive house. The entrance opens into a foyer adjacent to an open concept kitchen with peninsula seating for 4. Continuing to the back of the house is a large dining room with a wet bar and custom designed dining table that comfortably seats 10, and can also function as a ping pong table (net, paddles, and balls provided!). Also on the main level is a full bathroom with shower stall, a laundry closet with washer and dryer, and the first bedroom. Adjacent to the main entrance, and three steps down, is a large bedroom with an en suite with shower/tub. Back in the kitchen, and past the coffee bar - complete with espresso machine, drip, and Keurig - is another bedroom that is down one flight and is adjacent to another full bath with shower stall. The master bedroom is found upstairs, part of a 4 room suite that includes a sitting room with desk and loveseat, designer bathroom, and a built-in twin sized day bed - perfect for younger ones. Three staircases lead to the second floor (also a catwalk away from the upstairs bedroom) which offers plenty of room for your group to spread out: whether it’s reading a book at the cozy living room window seat while listening to the console record player, catching up on your streaming in the den, playing a game in the breakfast room, finishing a puzzle in the loft which includes a futon couch (up a spiral stair), or enjoying the roof deck (accessible via ship’s ladder) with panoramic views of Martha’s vineyard and surrounding waters. Adjacent to the den are bookcases full of games and books for your enjoyment, and a powder room. Additional outdoor space is off the main entrance: a lit peastone patio with outdoor table seating for 4 and a pair of Adirondack chairs to relax in. An outdoor shower rounds out the exterior amenities. The house is equipped with three zone central air conditioning, 4K streaming Roku TVs in each bedroom, high speed internet, and a fully equipped kitchen that includes microwave, dishwasher, and 5 burner gas range. An outdoor 50 amp outlet is available for charging your electric vehicle. The neighborhood is quiet with minimal street traffic, but provides quick and easy access to all that you want from your Cape vacation: a 4 minute walk (0.2 miles) to the Shining Sea Bikeway, 10 minute walk (0.5 miles) to downtown Woods Hole, 12 minute walk (0.6 miles) to the Martha’s Vineyard Ferry, a 7 minute bike ride to Surf Drive beach via the Bikeway, and a 7 minute drive to downtown Falmouth.
