RENOVATED CAPTAIN'S HOME MERGES HISTORIC AND MODERN ELEMENTS. Steeped with history and beautifully renovated inside and out by Hutker Architects in 2013, this 1860's gem is situated on a large corner lot in the heart of Edgartown Village. Known as the Captain Ellsworth West House, the home's historic connections coupled with its impeccable quality and lush gardens would be sufficient to make this one of the finest homes in the village -- but add to that, its characterful styling and beautifully curated vintage details and this property is really something special.
