(Note: for 2015, we are installing central AC). This home is perfectly located - just steps to the beach, downtown Oak Bluffs, and the OB Ferry. One side of the house is bordered by Nashaweena Park, which offers a pleasant stroll to the beach and waterfront, while just around the corner you will find tennis and basketball courts, as well as a playground. Inside, you will find freshly refinished antique hardwood floors, a completely repainted interior, newly renovated full baths on first and second floors (see photos), a strong wireless router, and a high efficiency washer/dryer. Outside there is a large wrap-around farmers porch with a gas grill and an adjacent outdoor shower with changing area. Please check out my other listings: 43151 and 43322.

Since the house is just steps to Downtown OB, you will have easy access to summer fairs, road races, bike trips, boating excursions and so forth. Not to mention great restaurants, shopping, and night life. What you may find most appealing, though, is just walking through the park to and from the water.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I had been renting out my Edgartown house since 1998 (VRBO 43322) and found that I really enjoyed the whole process -- the summer rentals, the renovations, spending time on MV, etc., which motivated me to purchase this home that you are looking at. I eventually purchased one more home on MV around 2006 (vrbo 43151) and then a vacation condo in San Diego. Owning these homes is a pleasure for me (most of the time!) and I think that may be the most important element in the whole process. I can't imagine doing this kind of work if you did not enjoy it. As I mentioned on the Edgartown webpage, I really appreciate the fact that guests come to my homes for what may be their one true vacation of the year, and this time is very important to each guest. I keep that in mind as I constantly update and maintain my homes to what I hope you find to be a high level of quality.
Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs: While we put an equal amount of effort and care into all three MV homes, and while I can't say that I value any one property over another, if we were to move to the Vineyard this is the home we would choose to live in. It's difficult to pinpoint what makes a property 'special,' but I think the fact that we often consider living in this home ourselves is the strongest statement we could make about our thoughts on this property.
