It's not everyday that a property comes on the market that hasn't been available since the 1850s, but here's such a listing by way of Woods Hole for a "one-of-a-kind estate property featuring endless views of Vineyard Sound and a private sandy beach." Per the brand new listing for 197 Nobska Road:
In 1850, Joseph Story Fay, a very prominent man in the history of Woods Hole, purchased a summer house and several land parcels. This 2.07 acre site was one of the original pieces and has remained in the family since that time. In 1940, the family built the existing 5 bedroom main house perched overlooking the water with stunning views and the separate 2 bedroom guest house.In addition to the rather historical digs, the property also includes a .31 acre waterfront parcel with a sandy beach, "the perfect site to build your very special seaside estate and bring your dreams to life!"
