About Alison McDonald
We are lovers and restorers of antique homes. This is one of three homes on Nantucket that we have restored. This house dates back to 1800. A succession of coopers and mariners owned the house in the first half of the nineteenth century, including master mariners William Pitman and William Barney. Daniel T. Dunham purchased the property in 1855, and it remained in his family until 1904. Ella Wyer, who lived at 1 West Chester with her husband, William H., bought the house at 3 West Chester in 1905; their son Irvin Wyer became the owner of both properties, and in 1944 he recorded the current plot plan for the property when he sold 3 West Chester to George and Mildred Roosevelt. The Reeses acquired the parcel behind the house in 1981. We are the third owners since then.

Why Alison McDonald chose Nantucket Town
We have been renting this property out during the summer for the last three years and people just love it! It usually sells out pretty quickly. This is one of the larger houses that can be rented with modern amenities that is easy walking distance of all that town offers. We see a lot of family parties and weddings where people want to house and sleep a lot of people but also want privacy. The guest cottage is perfect for that. The property is well designed for entertaining and accommodating the needs of all ages with three distinct spaces with outdoor furniture.
