Maduequecham : Our property in Maddequecham is a beautiful get away within walking distance (about twenty minutes by path or dirt road) of one of Nantucket's most beautiful south shore beaches. There is great surfing and fishing and swimming at the beach. It is one of the least traveled beaches on Nantucket even during the heart of the summer. It is a good idea to have a car but the bike path and the shuttle to town runs on the main road a mile from the house.the sunsets from the upper west deck are fantastic!
About the owner: The owner , Marshall Thompson , owns and operates a popular restaurant on Nantucket- The Jetties. He lives on a boat in the harbor for the summer and is very available if you need him for help or advice.
my name is marshall thompson and i designed and built the house myself in 1996 after buying the property in 1992. i have a restaurant called 'the jetties' (www.thejetties.com) that is open seasonally on nantucket. i rent my house out in the summer and live on my 36 foot grand banks trawler the 'restless dragon.' the rest of the year i live in the house.
Marshall Thompson purchased this house in 1996
i love the area of madequecham. i call it living out in the country because my neighborhood is surrounded by conservation land. it is off the beaten path and quiet and close to my favorite beach on nantucket-maduequecham beach. it is still just a ten minute drive into town however.
quiet,beautiful,comfortable-great for solitude and for family gatherings. mi casa es su casa!!!
This house is within walking distance to one of the most peaceful beaches on the island - where you will probably find more seal than humans. The yard is perfect for outdoor entertaining and families. You are not secluded, yet have complete privacy. The amenities are plentiful yet the feel is comfortable and un-stuffy. A great place to relax for vacation.
charming, spacious house on a gorgeous lot. a leisurely 15 minute stroll to the beautiful, private south shore beaches of nantucket island. comfortable stay with all the necessary amenities...couldn't have asked for a more relaxing setting.
this house was just what we needed. i loved the kitchen and the walk to the beach. very clean and comfortable-nice linens and the view of the sunset from the upstairs deck was great at cocktail time. the kids and the dog had the room above the garage and i was a little jealous it was so nice .
we had dinner at the jetties ,marshall's place on the beach two nights which was fun and worth the little drive into town(with a stop at the juice bar ,of course!)
we are coming back in 2010..
