Ideal romantic getaway. Summer living at its absolute best! Deep breaths of fresh sea air. The most brilliant show of stars in the summer sky and the gentle sound of surf as you go off to sleep. Take a short early morning stroll in bare feet for a dip in the sea before breakfast or a long walk on the beautiful sandy and un-crowded beach that stretches as far as the eye can see. This is the place to collect shells, build sand castles, read summer books, while-away the day.
This elegant and simple renovation of an authentic Nantucket bungalow is a classic New England summer retreat. Surrounded by a private hedge, the property is secluded and offers a lovely sense of privacy. The inner garden is spacious and restful. Flowering hydrangeas, roses climbing a trellis to the roof and swaying sea grass create a lovely sanctuary far away from busy "off island" life. Chaise lounges and an outside shower make for easy outdoor living. The wood porch and deck are adjacent to the cottage and hedge. An outdoor dining table and a comfortable built in banquette on the deck are in close proximity to the kitchen An old wisteria vine climbs over the arbor and offers ample shade from midday sun.
Located in the lower village of Siasconst in Cod Fish Park, this cottage was once part of a community of cod fishermen. The intimate property offers a peaceful seaside experience with all the conveniences of Island village living. Just a short scenic walk to the center of the historic village finds a well stocked general store, gourmet restaurants, post office, a liquor store, tennis club, unique summer movie theatre, and a small church. If a visitor was inclined, a car would be unnecessary. Bike paths are abundant on Nantucket and local jitneys leave hourly for Nantucket Town and the many wonderful beaches that surrounded the Island. (1 week rentals minimum in June, September and October. 2 week rental minimum in July and August.)
We have owned this cottage for many years. It's been a wonderful summer retreat for our family and friends.
