Description

Seven Gates Farm waterfront and rare opportunities are synonyms. This coveted community offers nearly 2,000 acres of the Island's most beautiful, dramatic conservation land including two miles of walkable beach, two docks, two tennis courts and extensive trails. The Revere waterfront home, an originally circa 1932 build and owned by The Homans', was purposely aimed for sentimental reasons toward Tarpaulin Cove. Some of the lumber used for the build was reportedly sailed to the site from Maine, possibly because Edith Homans' family summered in N.E. Harbor, Maine. Her brother-in-law, Roger Griswold was the architect who designed the eight bedroom, four bathroom 4,800 square foot home nestled into the gentle slope of this 6.1 acre parcel. The u- shaped dwelling with inner courtyard provides inviting picturesque views of a lower pond and Vineyard Sound. The Revere matriarch, Althea, purchased the home in 1955 and then in 1956 winterized, modernized the interior and had a garage built. This long standing home with history is eagerly awaiting a new owner to begin this home's next chapter.
