JJManning Auctioneers is proud to offer at Absolute Auction a 3,233+/-SF historic home located at 1005 State Rd., W. Tisbury (Martha's Vineyard), MA. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Island history. Construction of the original c. 1667 one-room portion is attributed to Josiah Standish, son of Myles Standish and one of the town’s first settlers. In the mid-1800’s, Henry L. Whiting made several additions, giving a Queen Anne Victorian appearance to this unique home which has been a town landmark for centuries. Formerly a clergy house for the Congregational Church, this property set on the north side of Parsonage Pond, was more recently known as the Old Parsonage Bed & Breakfast. Centrally located close to Alley’s General Store, this is an architecturally significant structure within the W. Tisbury Historic District.
The 1.5-story post & beam home sits on a fieldstone foundation with distinctive diamond-pane windows and a covered front porch. It features a country kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, fine period detail including wood floors and paneling, 5+/- fireplaces, curved staircase, outdoor shower and an attached shed.
