                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1987

                  About the owner: We're a couple with two teenagers and 3 cats. We own a fine art photography gallery in the Arts District, in Oak Bluffs. We're both artists (photographer and graphic designer), so the aesthetics of where we live are hugely important to us. We'll be living in Edgartown for the season.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  In the morning, walk out the front door, along the pond, and a block down Canonicus Street to the beach along Vineyard Sound. Walk along the water all the way around the harbor, and end up at Biscuits restaurant for breakfast, and then walk back through the Camp Ground, full of brightly-painted Victorian cottages. Ride your bikes to the fantastic bike path toward Edgartown, with water and beaches on both sides. Or kayak around the pond, and see the many varieties of waterfowl, including Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Bufflehead ducks, and a (very) occasional otter. We feel this is the absolute best location on the Vineyard. We're a block from the best bike path on the Island. There are gorgeous walks in every direction, and you can kayak on the pond right out in front of the house. Some of the best fishing locations are within sight of the house. And it's a very short walk to town, the harbor, amazing restaurants, shops, grocery store, drug store, banks, post office, and everything you could possibly need. Cap off your day with cocktails on the huge upstairs deck overlooking Farm Pond and Vineyard Sound. You can see water from every room in the house.
