19th-Century Landmark w/ Ocean View, Great Porch & Deck - 300 Feet to Beach!

A storied landmark that has stood in the heart of Oak Bluffs since the mid-19th century, the Historic J.A. Norton House brings beauty, convenience, and the charm of yesteryear to your Martha's Vineyard getaway. This picturesque home was built in 1880 but thoughtfully renovated in 1998, allowing you to spend your vacation in comfort and style, within 300 feet of the beach.

With downtown Oak Bluffs less than half a mile north and Inkwell Beach right around the corner, you'll be able to walk home from your daily excursions and be greeted by a gracious, wrap-around front porch. You can sip cold drinks in cushioned Adirondack chairs and watch the neighbors pass you by, or move onto the trellised back deck to barbecue and dine in the island breeze. Inside, the living space is both refined and inviting, offering beautiful wood floors, antique accents, and such modern touches as free WiFi, flatscreen TVs, and a washer/dryer to take care of the day's swimsuits and towels. The country kitchen is at the back of the house, offering every essential appliance (including a dishwasher), an eat-in table, and direct access to both the back deck and the formal dining room.

At night, you'll find four queen bedrooms to choose from. The front bedroom on the second floor even has its own personal balcony - a charming, shaded cupola with a lovely view of the surrounding neighborhood.
