Fun fact: one of the Vineyard's earliest celebrity residents was the late actor James Cagney. The Academy Award winner's 200 acre Chilmark homestead functioned as his main residence on the island from 1936 until 1986, but Cagney also owned a house overlooking Edgartown Harbor from 1948 to 1952 (h/t Martha's Vineyard Patch). Built in 1934, the 6,243 square foot 11 bedroom, nine and a half bath house now "lends itself toward use as a generational meeting place." Asking price for the quarter-acre waterfront property with a 145' dock is $9,185,000.
