About Peter Tulloch
Our family has been enjoying summers in Nantucket since the early '70s. We initially rented in 'Sconset but wanted to be 'on the water' where we could moor our boat and our two young boys would be able to swim, sail and row safely. We found this wonderful location in Pocomo and bought what was then a single story Nantucket cottage. We have since renovated our home adding a second story initially and then, more recently expanding out over the garage. Our boys are grown now with families of their own and they all continue to come to Nantucket, not only in the summer but also after Christmas through the New Year. It has been a special part of all of our lives, a place where we've all made life long friends and continue to share many happy memories.
Peter Tulloch purchased this house in 2004
What makes this house unique
Pocomo is located on the north-eastern end of Nantucket Harbor. When we first bought here, there were a number of summer cottages - many owned by local Nantucketers who came from Town to enjoy the fishing, boating and quiet beaches. Over the last decade, Pocomo has been 'discovered' and there has been a great deal of development up and down Pocomo Road. Fortunately, however, most of the houses cannot be seen from the road and there is still an open, country-like feel to the area. The scenery and quiet pace are what has attracted so many here, far from the noise, traffic and bustling crowds of Town.
