This extraordinary waterfront home sits on a bluff overlooking the desirable Lagoon Pond, with views spanning to Eastville Point Beach and Vineyard Haven Harbor beyond. This home is sited on 1.57 acres of landscaped lawn with brilliant green oak trees and features 120 feet of frontage on Lagoon Pond. A stunning example of the perfect blend of historic charm and modern amenities, this classic Victorian style home was built in the 1870s as part of the Innisfail Inn, a summer resort that attracted famous actors, operetta stars, and musicians, who spent their days enjoying the ocean breeze and perfecting their craft with informal concerts on the wrap-around porch. This home has been thoughtfully renovated to include updated amenities. The kitchen was expanded; an eight-hundred-square-foot master bedroom suite including private bath, a walk-through closet, an office alcove, and air conditioning was added; and the porch was enlarged to wrap around the new living space. The interior of the house radiates happiness, with cheerful accents of color grounded by crisp white paint. Yet the vintage character of the home remains with original exposed joists, board walls, and open ceilings, keeping the feel of the Victorian cottage intact. In Celtic, Innisfail means "the abode of peace and rest", an accurate translation to convey the tranquility and beauty of this property. This is a rare opportunity to own a lovingly maintained home with a long and storied history, but most importantly, this elegant home is the perfect property for generations of gatherings for family and friends. This home directly abuts the vacant land for sale at 0 Howard Street. A buyer looking to keep the same feel and privacy that 87 Bellevue currently holds, should also consider buying the adjacent land with almost 150 feet of Lagoon frontage and a 4-bedroom septic in place.

2nd Floor
