Andy and Ward are partners of 7 yrs in their 50-60s. We live in the Somerset Hills of NJ as well as own an apt in Soho/NYC. Ward is a pharmaceutical printer and Andy manages a small real estate portfolio. The beach house is used April thru September each summer. We have a five yr. old female choc. labrador, Billie. We love to entertain and Fire Island is all about lunches, picnics on the beach and dinner parties. The kitchen is stocked with all the latest conveniences and gadgets, as well as two dishwashers. We are both accomplished cooks and Andy is an amateur gardener. We are trying to create a deer-resistant indigenous seaside garden around the house on Fire Island.
