About Joseph McMahon
After a very long search I purchased this home in 1998, at the time knowing little about Martha's Vineyard or owning a vacation home. I soon found that I enjoyed the whole process of providing summer rentals so much that I went on to purchase another home in Oak Bluffs, and then one more after that. One important thing I have learned and always try to keep in mind is that guests come to my homes for perhaps their one vacation of the year, and this time is very important to each them -- which is why we are always striving to make the house better each year, sometimes with big items such as installing central ac, or in small ways, such as improving the wireless or adding a few more dvds and games for the kids.

Why Joseph McMahon chose Edgartown
Once I got the idea to buy a home on MV, it really 'stuck' and I got a bit obsessed by it. That's a good thing, because it was no easy task. I can remember going to the island on the coldest, wettest, most dreary winter days you can imagine, to look at all kinds of homes -- I didn't like any of them. The search was expanded to Nantucket, as well, with no success. I finally reached the point of giving up when my broker asked me to come out just one more time to look at a property that was not listed for sale. That home was, of course, this property on Hannah's Way. I don't think I was in the home 60 seconds before I knew I had found what I was looking for.
What makes this house unique
One thing that makes this home stand out from most ranches and capes is that the living room has a vaulted ceiling. This ceiling gives this relatively small home a feeling of openness and space that I think you notice as soon as you walk in the front door. Visitors always tell me that the place 'feels' like home, and I think this starts with the first impression one gets upon entering. Another nice feature is that the home is very close to Main Street, yet it is on just about the quietest lot you will find. So you have easy access to town plus a peaceful home to relax in.
