Owner info

Year Purchased: 1962

About the owner: I started coming to the Vineyard from Virginia as a small child in the 1950's. We are now a multi generational Vineyard summer family and know the Island intimately. We come with our children and grand child every year.

Why the Owner Chose West Tisbury:
The land was given to my Mother by an old Island friend in the end of her field on Lmbert's Cove Road. The original house was built by my parents in the early 1960's and we have added and improved it over the years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Away from the crowds and hustle of the towns, the location is quiet and peaceful. The view from the screened poorch down into the dell is lovely. The beach is truly a 5 minute walk away. When you are done the outdoor shower is refreshing. The Vineyard has exceptional conservation properties that are available to the public for hiking or beach access. There is excellent public transportation and bike paths extend to most of the island.
