Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Sharron Boehm is currently a retired interior designer having worked for Ethan Allen for 18 years. Jack Boehm is a retired Physical Education teacher and Aquatic Director. Been married for 51 years with 3 children and 7 grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Block Island:
We first learned about Block Island when our daughter was working during the summer of her first year in college. When she had her wedding there in 1996, we rented this house. One year later we were lucky enough to purchase the house. Having looked for a vacation house for several years, we finally realized that this environment was exactly what we were looking for.
