Imagine owning a house where a famous comedy genius and Emmy-winning writer, David Lloyd, of Cheers, Taxi and The Mary Tyler Moore Show lived and wrote his famous scripts.
Now you have the chance to buy this charming 5 acre property with a 4 bedroom house and a 2 bedroom detached guest apartment located in the exclusive Oyster Pond enclave. This property offers water views from the high elevation and deeded access to a private Atlantic Ocean beach, from a nearby boat push-in, so much more.
The main house is spread out over 2500 square feet, and more spaces have water views over the expansive lawn. Oyster Pond itself is the ideal setting for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, crabbing, and shellfishing.
Cheers is an American sitcom television series that ran for 11 seasons from 1982 to 1993. The show is set in the Cheers bar (named for the toast “Cheers”) in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals meet to drink, relax, chat and have fun, what most patrons do in a local bar. The show’s theme song lent its famous refrain, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”, as the show’s tagline.
If you have lived in Boston most of your life, like I have, the best part of the show is the local Boston accent, and the attitude, that this is who I am, like it or lump it! The characters are real, maybe a little over the top, but I knew people like the Coach, Norm, Cliff, Diane, and Sam. Bars are interesting hang-outs…. they just seem to attract all sorts of unforgettable characters.
Ted Danson, who played the ex-Red Sox player and owner of the Cheers, Sam Malone, has a house on Martha’s Vineyard. On any given summer day, you can see Ted walking around Vineyard Haven doing some shopping in the local stores.
David Lloyd wrote some of the funniest episodes for Cheers, sitting at a desk on the second floor of this house looking out at Oyster Pond. A writer needs to be inspired and at the same time have a peaceful environment to work and let the creative juices flow. This house fits the bill.
It’s a great property at the right price!
