Siasconset House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This custom home with dramatic ocean views is a shingle style design, with post & beam construction. It features a spacious, open floor plan and extensive windows bringing in light and fresh ocean breezes. A central hallway adds light to the interior of the first floor from a cupola high above. A massive granite fireplace centers the living room and a gourmet kitchen featuring gas range, Sub Zero refrigerator, expansive granite center Island; temperature controlled wine storage and two dishwashers. A wrap-around porch and spacious patio provides for outside living. Ocean views abound from second floor decks.
Property is situated on a cul-de-sac, private road with ample lawns for kids to play safely. Nantucket has an extensive network of paved bike/walking trails to safely travel all over the Island. A seasonal bus service will also take you to any part of the Island. World class restaurants, antique stores, deep sea fishing and long days at one of the numerous beaches are just a few things to do, using this home as a base.
The center of the village of Siasconset is a short walk and features dinning; post office; general store and many buildings dating to the 18th century. Summers are generally warm with gentle ocean breezes and walking is a pleasure with reduced speed limits in the village.

Although I call Siasconset home, I travel extensively (particularly in the summer and fall) in connection with my work as an ocean explorer. As a founding director of the Aurora Trust for Ocean exploration and education I spend much of my time searching the sea floor for ancient ship wrecks. My work involves extensive travel and time at sea during our 6 month working season. Much of this travel is in the Mediterranean sea and the countries that border it. Nantucket keeps me connected with the ocean while at home and is a great location to have as a home base.
This property was not built as a vacation rental. The property is available, during the summer and early fall as I am away on travel during this period.
I particularly enjoy the privacy of this location. It is near enough to walk or bike to the village; beach or even into town, but is not in a highly traveled location. I love the sound and smell of the nearby ocean. Built on a cup-de-sac, it's perfect for a family vacation with young children.
