Driving Directions

Affectionately known as "The Whale" and owned by the same family for over 60 years, this Classic West Chop home is privately situated on 1.62 acres with stone walls framing an expansive, gently rolling lawn down to the deeded, sandy beach. With over 200 feet of protected beach, this is some of the best swimming and kayaking on the island! Enjoy panoramic views from the screened in porch, back deck, and all 6 bedrooms! With a 3 br. addition in 2004, this is a delightful combination of old and new, appealing to all! The older wing includes 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bath, all with water views! The large living room leads out to a beautiful sitting area overlooking the manicured lawn, stone wall, hydrangeas, the beach and Sound beyond. The formal dining room with extensive windows also enjoys panoramic views. In the renovated wing there is an updated kitchen overlooking a comfortable family room and inviting screened in porch. A large first floor master suite and 2 additional bedrooms en suite viewing the Sound complete this charming addition. An oversized basement and garage provide additional storage especially for bikes, kayaks, and "island" car! The panoramic views here are mesmerizing and this is a rare opportunity to find a turnkey house on an oversized, private lot, within the "West Chop Loop", truly a property not to be missed.
