Since coming to the Vineyard in the 70s as a child, I knew one day I'd want to own a piece of it! In 1986, we decided that we would get started with a purchase of land in Vineyard Meadow Farms, a beautiful part of West Tisbury, close to Long Point Beach. We finally built in 2000, deciding that the best way to afford our dream home was rent it part of the Summer months, and have some guests [prefer not to call them renters] that have been coming back every Summer for more than 15 years! We live in the New York City area, and get to MV at least monthly all year round. In addition, I serve as a Trustee on the Vineyard Meadow Farms Association.
What is special about this property?
Our home is located on a private, paved road, about a mile south of Edgartown-West Tisbury Road. The property is 2 acres, and the home is set back about 800 feet on a peastone driveway, edged by cobblestones. We have tried to anticipate everything we'd have wanted for a perfect Vineyard Vacation. Our home has central air, and gas forced air heat. Each room is equipped with a USB outlet, and a fan, and our audio system has bluetooth connectivity, so you can play your favorite tunes. Our side deck has a Weber Grill connected to the home gas supply, and an electrically opening Sunsetter Awning, to provide you with shade when desired. The home has an outside shower, and a beautifully cared for daylilly garden. We supply beach equipment, and all the kitchen small appliances to ensure that when you eat in, that you can enjoy the bounty of the many local farms found on Martha's Vineyard.
What is special about your town?
We knew that we wanted the peace and beauty of an up-island town, and felt that West Tisbury was just up-island enough, without being too remote. West Tisbury has wonderful attractions, such as Long Point Beach, and the Farmer's Market, and has exceptional restaurants, such as State Road Restaurant, our very favorite on the Island. We have a nationally recognized public library, the Polly Hill Arboretum, The Field Gallery and Sculpture Garden, Alley's General Store, and the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Society, home of the Annual Agricultural Society Fair.
