Video of 100 Main St | Edgartown, Massachusetts real estate & homes on Martha's Vineyard - The Jonathan Munroe House sits proudly on Main Street among the most historical landmarks in the Village.  Entering the residence is like stepping into the 18th Century just as this wonderful home was being completed.  Everything but the original charm has been replaced or updated to meet your 21st Century expectations.  Staying true to Victorian style, the property is enhanced with ornamental brackets, extensive carvings and a lovely wrap-around, colonnaded front porch.
The entry foyer with its elegant staircase flows to gracious living spaces including the front sitting room with floor to ceiling windows and handsome parlor with fireplace and custom built-ins.  A new owner will have opportunity to reinvent the kitchen and dining areas and it would be wonderful to perhaps create a flow from there to the side yard.  

There are six en suite bedrooms in all, each with its own history alluding to the past, when Jonathan Munroe and his family lived and entertained in grand fashion.  Additional space is also found on the 3rd floor, which was recently renovated and would lend itself fantastically as nanny quarters or for other staff.

If friends or family are visiting, there is the charming Carriage House which nicely separated from the main residence by a slate patio.   There you'll find a breezy screened porch and living room with fireplace and wet bar, ensuring relaxation after a day of shopping or beach-going.  A bedroom and bath are found at the top of a winding staircase.  The quarters allow your guests to visit and enjoy a bit of independence and plenty of privacy.

This is a remarkable opportunity for those seeking the best of in-town living.
