About Dabney Bowen
I am the fifth generation of my family to own a vacation home in Nantucket. My mother's great-grandparents first visited the island in 1910 and my great-grandfather purchased a family summer house in 1924. I grew up coming to Nantucket in the summers, and am happy to be able to continue this legacy for my children. We enjoy sharing the house with others who love Nantucket as much as we do.
Dabney Bowen purchased this house in 2007
Why Dabney Bowen chose Nantucket Town
We purchased this house as a vacation home for our family because of its rich history, proximity to the center of town, large private yard and comfortable interior space. It is the perfect mix of privacy, convenience, historic charm and modern amenities.
What makes this house unique
Our house is located within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants, historic sites, and the ferry docks. It is one block from the Madaket Bike Path and is a short bike ride to nearby beaches.
