Centerville House Overlooking Olmsted-Designed Gardens Was Built Around a Windmill, Wants $1.6 Million


"Fun, Funky and Full of Character!" So begins this new listing by way of Centerville and we couldn't agree more. Located on historic Main Street, this 4,400-square-foot shingle style was built in 1995 around a Victorian windmill and has walkability to the library, numerous shops (the Country Store, Four Seas Ice cream), and "three pristine, sandy ocean beaches on Nantucket Sound." The rather lovely house is set 250-feet back from the road on 1.01 acres overlooking a "bucolic pond and 100+ year old gardens" designed by the father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted. While the pretty pond doesn't look like one humans would want to dive into, the property does come with its very own heated pool to satisfy the aquatically inclined. Inside, the six-bedroom, four-full and two-half bath home features 10' pickled beam ceilings, a double dose of master suites, a river stone fireplace, and "ocean views from the top of the tower with its cherry wood cocktail bar." Back outside, there's a two-car garage and 1,000 square feet of mahogany decks and porches. Asking price is $1,595,000.
