About Neil

Neil and Deb Withers, met on the Vineyard, married here a year later and purchased this 'old' house from revolutionary restaurateur

Louise Tate King that same year. The aroma of French cuisine took month's to fade. Now it's fresh as a bunch of daisies.

Neil purchased this house in 1988

Why Neil chose West Tisbury

Once the first French style restaurant on the island,.'The Island Epicure' immortalized by the indefatigable Ms. King, this house has settled into a residential afterlife where we raised our family and enjoyed all that this lovely island has to offer. Old houses have a story to tell, walls that recall all who have passed by, and this house has led an interesting life. Before it was a restaurant it was, in the 50's, home to a family with thirteen children.

Before that a singular man lived here, palm reader, psychic, plate photographer, raconteur, village muse, possibly village 'idiot'

Ed Luce. His mother Saphronia had lived her whole life here also.

It's origins lie further back still before decent records exist...Ante-

Bellum.

What makes this house unique

The central island location, village feeling and simple access both up, down and cross island all contribute to the house's unique benefits.

Gorgeous!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is in the most adorable neighborhood.We loved walking to the fantastic restaurant across the street. There is also a glass blowing studio where you can watch them blow glass right there. We loved getting coffee at the farm stand directly across the street. The yard is huge and there are tons of flowers everywhere! It was perfect for BBQ's. We ate on the porch almost every night. The house is sunny and spacious with lots of character. We will be returning there for many summers to come...

Our house is perfectly located for enjoying all the beauties of 'Up Island' while remaining within range of the action in the island's three main towns. We have galleries, gourmet delis and fine dining just a short walk away, and one of the islands best small supermarkets less than 1/2 a mile away. Seth's freshwater pond is less than a mile, great for small children or endurance swimmers who favor fresh calm waters. Then a short distance further is Lamberts Cove beach, a serene crescent of sunset facing sand and wave free swimming. Cycle paths lead off to the State forest from our front yard, West Tisbury town, home of the County Fair in August and all stations west as far as Gay head.

The delightful fishing village of Menemsha lies a few miles up peaceful North Road with its stellar seafood and legendary sunsets. Many epic beaches adorn the western end of Marthas Vineyard all easily accessible to the early bird who claims a parking spot. You will be well ahead of the crowd.

Other Activities: ' Historically referred to as Middletown, the intersection of State and North Roads was home to one of the earliest European settlements on the Vineyard - predating even the town of Tisbury. According to Gazette archives, Middletown was a business center, with blacksmiths, weavers and cabinetmakers plying their trades. A post office stood near the intersection in the 19th century, in its time a central Vineyard location where horse-drawn mail carriers would stop to rest on their way up-Island.' Extracted from The Vineyard Gazette. 2006

Here are the websites of a few nearby points of interest.

As villages go, North Tisbury (formerly Middletown) has a lot

going on in it's own quiet, unpretentious way.
