Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I brought my children up in this house, and until a few years ago, we lived here year-round. I am the publications director at a local publishing company, editing a magazine and newspaper features. My children and I live on the Lagoon in the summer, and rent the house out. We think it's one of the best places in the whole world. People tell us they've never slept better than they do in our house.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs, MA, USA:
It's rare in that it is close to town, but feels remote. We bought it for the amazing views, the walk to school and town, the nice neighbors and the quirky historical character.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting on the big wide front stairs with coffee in the morning (or a drink in the evening), 25 feet from the water, watching the birds, the otters, my husband rowing across the pond to go fishing. Being far enough from town that it's quiet all the time, but close enough to walk in for anything- breakfast, or library, or groceries, or dinner out, a movie, or a warm donut from backdoor donuts late at night. Lying in the 'daybed' nook, surrounded by books, with a fire going in the fireplace, staring out at the water, while someone else makes dinner in the kitchen, which is open to all the rooms downstairs. Riding our bikes out the door to miles of bike paths.
