The town of Edgartown is quintessentially New England perfection. White or gray homes. Shuttered with real deal shutters. But the price tags made my jaw drop.
Two houses were going under serious restoration. This one was up on blocks, gutted to be saved. A labor of love. Look at the 12 over 12 windows.
Not sure that this house is undergoing renovation. Looks too far gone and if the Big Bad Wolf huffed and puffed, he could blow this puppy dog down.
And we flipped a coin to see which one of us was okay with being arrested for stealing this gorgeous copper weathervane atop the Town Hall.
We zipped over to see the HGTV Dream Home of 2015 that was won by someone from Louisiana.She sold without ever moving in. She was required to make an appearance to see the house, then I guess she called a realtor.

The entire street, the once modest Crocker Drive, is today one after another new big houses. I don’t see any value there. No water view. Can’t walk to town. Kind of in-between nowhere and nothing. The HGTV house looked far prettier on the show than it does squished between other new houses. ZERO land. And its backyard goes straight down a hill to a man-made pond for the residences of the Field Club on a road behind it. The winner was smart to sell. She did alright by selling.
This concludes the Martha’s Vineyard 40-Year Reunion Tour. I took a ton more photos but I’m sure I’ve bored you plenty already so I’ll end with last night’s sunset. Our take-away was that the Vineyard was really special place to live, that we were both lucky to have made it our home and have friends who also appreciated the nature that was around us every day.
