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-
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.
