Description: It's easy to imagine the skipper of a coastal schooner returning from his sea voyages to this 1850s village home.

According to realtor Judy Federowicz, many of the homes in the historic district of Vineyard Haven were built by shipwrights, who adapted their shipbuilding skills to home construction. There's little uniform about these historic homes; each is unique.

This is a cross-gabled Greek revival with a double living room focused on a lovely stone fireplace. The view is of its enchanting gardens, which include a brick patio and fish pond.

The dining room has direct access to the screened-in porch for al fresco dining. There are grape arbors, gorgeous trees and an "outdoor room" enclosed by wisterias, plus a delightful year-round guest house and single-car garage.

The house is in-town, close to shopping, restaurants and services but just a few blocks from the harbor. There are beaches just a short walk or drive away.
