Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: The gracious house is my home and I love sharing it with other families. It is a very happy home filled with memories, some I'm sure dating back to the 1800's! This home was built in 1843 as a Sea Captain's home, and has also been a boarding house in the 1960's, as well as a Bed and Breakfast. My husband and I did an extensive renovation/addition is 2002, converting this gracious house to our home. My husband and I both graduated from Cornell University. We have four children - two sons out of college, our #3 son Cornell Univeristy Class of 2015, and daughter will be entering Ithaca College this fall - 2013. Renting out my lovely home is helping to make these tuition payments!

Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven, MA, USA:
I love old homes with a history. This home has a story to tell. Walking into this home, you can feel it's warmth and blessings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Since this home was originally built in 1843 - it is very unique! Even with the approx 3000 sq ft addition, there is plenty of the 'old house' remaining - with original wide plank flooring, original fireplaces, and beautiful molding. Many old materials were used in the new construction: ceiling tins as backspalsh in the kitchen, an old soapstone double sink in the laundry room, and antique chandeliers and wall sconces. The front porch is a lovely place to sit and watch the world walk by, the side patio is lush, and lovely and a great place to sit and enjoy a book or a nap. There are peek a boo water views from the front bedroom on the second floor, and from the third floor front bedroom and master bedroom you can see the ferry coming arriving in Vineyard Haven Harbor, as well as all the way to Cape Cod!
