International fashion photographer moved to the Island in the early 80's after finding the wonderful serenity of Martha's Vineyard. The Isanders are such wonderful creative people, always willing to stop and chat.
Bob purchased this house in 1984
Why Bob chose West Tisbury
The Vineyard is a microcosm untouched by the outside world, it still has the old world values sadly disappearing from our lives. The quality of light and scenery are hard to beat, the beaches are magnificent. Not to mention the abundance of fish and bird life.
What makes this house unique
Quaint historical village situated in the center of Martha's Vineyard first settled in 1669. A rural setting, wonderful for country walks, scenic bike trails to most of the down island towns. The biweekly farmer's market, Artisans show and antique market at The Grange Hall are great fun and a fabulous source for the Island's best organic produce and an introductions to the local year round artists. The charming West Tisbury Public library has a marvelous selection of books both for adults and children, DVD of the latest films and documentaries. The pristine Lambert's Cove Beach belongs to the town which allows access to residents and renters for a small fee. Alley's General store in the heart of the village is an institution, first opened for business in 1858 has all the old world charm of another era where one can buy anything from local produce, coffee and pastries, newspapers to drill bits and light bulbs. The village is equidistant from Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Bob's place is a gemstone: a beautiful place with a gorgeous garden and fabulous furniture and knick-knacks and the best plates I've ever seen in a kitchen! As a photographer, Bob has filled his house up with wonderful pieces and books and keeps the place meticulously neat and clean. I came with my 2 small dogs and he couldn't have been more accommodating and sweet. You will love it here. It's peaceful and comfortable. On the weekend you can literally fall out of bed into the farmer's market and there's a strawberry festival in the church. The West Tisbury beach is also to-die-for. Rent this place!
