                  The house is located in a wooded area offering a great deal of privacy yet it has the advantage of being close to town for shopping, dining and the ferry. There are a number on nice walks to the beach and through the area


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: We are Barbara Hamill and Frank Banister. Our home base is White Plains, NY but we try to visit the Island once a month. The house is rented for most of the summer but we enjoy the off season. September and October may be the best times on the island

                  Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven:
                  My wife Barbara has been vacationing on the island for 40 years and had always dreamed of having a house on the island. In 1999 that became possible but there was not much on the market. We found a house on a beautiful piece of proberty with a view of the sound and bought it even though the house was truely ugly. In 2004 we were able to renovate the house and now have a charming shingle style house to go with the proberty. There are pictures of the original house at the house so you can appreciate the transformantion.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We feel the house offers the best of two worlds. It is set in the woods and has the feel of being up island but is only 10 min from town for easy access to stores and ferry. The opwn floor plan with separate seating areas makes it very comfortable for a large group. To wake up in the morning and look out at the Elizabeth Island is charming
