We met when we were teens on the beach at Menemsha way back in 1957. We've been together since then always returning to the Vineyard for vacations and holidays. When we had kids they too fell in love the MV. We always wanted to live here full time but earning a living got in the way as we were both in the publishing industry in New York. But finally in 2007 we decided like many of our friends who were now living here full time to do the same. Its a great place to live in retirement (well we will never retire) because there are so many interesting people who live here year round and so many fantastic events and things to do that are interesting and keep one learning new things. The arts community is big here, there are many writers, actors, artists, university professors, political and policy makers living here that makes the atmosphere very stimulating. We remain throughout the winter and really love of Off Season the most.
We had always rented vacation homes but over the years looked at many houses to buy. But somehow we didn't take the plunge when we should have. But in 2007 it felt like it was time to do it and my husband Brook said for our wedding anniversary we will go to the Vineyard and buy a house. It was August 6th and we had only 2 days but we managed to see 36 houses in 2 days. When we saw this house we knew it was the one. Of course it was more expensive than our budget but it had the most land, was in the beautiful town of West Tisbury. It only had 2 bedrooms and 1/1/2 baths when we bought it but it had a finished lower level, real cherry cabinets in the kitchen, a huge garage with potential space above. It also had central air and had been built by a contractor who used the best materials to build his home. The house is constructed with steel beams, something you don't usually see on the Vineyard or in any house I've owned. We later added a big master bedroom and ensuite bath to the house making the house officially 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths.
The location is ideal so central and equidistant to all points on the Vineyard. The floor plan of split bedrooms is conducive to privacy for adults and children. Teenagers love to hang in the family room downstairs. The front deck is a perfect place to have a morning cup of coffee and the large back deck is perfect to enjoy a leisurely dinner that you have cooked on the Weber Genesis grill. The huge backyard is a wonderful place for kids and grownups alike to hang out reading a book, playing ball or Bocce or crochet. And the 4 large flat screen TV's provide fun entertainment during the evenings.
