          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: I am a builder and carpenter. I'm married and have a beautiful 3.5 year old daughter and a soon to be born boy. I vacationed on the Vineyard my whole life, but only decided to settle here 12 years ago after meeting my now wife who is an Island native. I enjoy playing tennis, practising yoga, and playing classical guitar.

          Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
          I bought this property because it was a rare opportunity to own and restore an antique (c.1786) house in its original setting. It is in the town of Chilmark which offers seclusion, the best beaches, but also easy access to down-island: it is only 20 minutes from the ferry terminal and 10 minutes from the grocery store. I fell in love with the setting and undertook a 5 year, labor-of-love restoration, trying to be as faithful as possible to the historic nature of the house. All of the mouldings were fabricated using period hand planes. The windows and doors are all period reproduction units. The post and beam repairs were performed by the master carpenter and crew from Plymouth Plantation, the living historic village. Most of all I enyoyed being surrounded by the natural wonders that I experienced during the five years of working on this house. I experienced some of the most peaceful moments of my life watching the moon rise over the trees, listening to the birds, and watching the wildlife (river otters, rabbits, turtles, ospreys...).

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Lucy Vincent Beach , with its red clay cliffs and rolling sand dunes, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and is only accessible by Chilmark residents and renters. The house is surrounded by nature preserves, such as Menemsha Hills, and Peaked Hill, which offer the most striking views of the Island. Enjoy restaurants, shops and sunsets at the historic fishing village of Menemsha (the setting for the movie 'Jaws') which is only 2 miles down the road. The Chilmark Community Center is a great meeting place. (2 miles away) It has beautiful public tennis courts (3 clay, 2 hard), A world class international film festival and numerous local events. There are also activities and camps for kids.
