23 Alex Way is an opportunity to embrace the extraordinary Elias/Langmuir/Skinner legacy which dramatically changed this extensive rural West Tisbury landscape. The 140 acres was purchased in 1972 and became the Nat's Farm homeowner community of 26 home sites which included 56 acres donated later to Sheriff's Meadow Foundation and the current incomparable Misty Meadows Equine Learning Center and homes along Elias Lane. Jane Langmuir, esteemed architect with Saarinen & Swanson, designed the house, a stunning 3,000 sq ft elegant house. This is a sophisticated home with 3 bedrooms, and a generous second floor study that could easily be converted to a fourth bedroom, a four bedroom septic (passed Title V) could support that adjustment. There are high arched ceilings, modern polished-concrete floors, and large windows throughout the spacious rooms. The living room and kitchen open onto a graceful deck. Enjoy the glorious views and year-round sunsets over the dramatic Sheriff's Meadow field and easy access to the 4,000+ State Forest encircled by a 10 mile bike path connected to another 25 miles of bike paths to Edgartown, Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs. The property also features a two car garage, lovely exterior stonework, an outdoor shower, and generous finished basement with high ceilings and a four bedroom septic. The home offers a combination of radiant heat (first floor), hot water baseboard heat on the second floor, and ducted AC on the second floor and in the primary suite on the first floor. The abutting 1.4 acre 15 Alex Way land is also available and listed separately on LINK for $795,000 to create an opportunity for a large family compound. 23 Alex Way is a rare opportunity to combine history, tradition, quality, beauty and grandeur.

There is a more formal front entrance, and also entry through the generous two car garage. The first floor features an open kitchen, dining, living area with 11 ft ceilings and large windows with gorgeous views of the conservation meadow. The primary suite is gracious with a cozy attached living area/media room, private deck, an enclosed private courtyard, a generous walk in closet and a pretty, stylish en-suite bathroom opening onto a private outdoor shower. There is also a laundry area/mudroom and separate powder room. The first floor features radiant heat throughout.

Two charming guest rooms each with private, elegant en-suite bathrooms featuring both tub and shower and high arched ceilings. In addition there is an study with built in shelving and meadow views.
