It is three floors with the three large bedrooms with high ceilings on the top floor, living room, kitchen and dining on the first floor and two bedrooms and living spaces on a below ground floor. The below ground floor is extremely well done with large light wells for each of the rooms, a large airy family room and a separate wide stairwell for entry.

My wife is a physician and I am an executive. We have three grown children - two in college and one working. We live in California but have been on Nantucket every summer for the last thirty years. Our family has homes on the island but this is our first individually owned island home.

Overall this house feels like a private first class resort - very modern, airy and convenient to almost anything you might want.
We looked at over forty homes over the last several years and decided that the home on Gingy was perfect.
When we are on island, we are always out on the water, at the beaches, doing our favorite walks (Ram's pasture, Altar Rock, the Cranberry Bogs), biking and enjoying town.
Gingy provides the perfect base of operation - it's on a very quiet, private street - no traffic. The house is huge, comfortable and airy - everything is new and works well. The deck and barbecue are great for summer dinners. Nothing is too far away - town is walking which we like because you can walk to shops, to dinner and other activities. You are a short distance from two terrific bike paths and it's also easy to get to shopping, to beaches (the house is well located in terms of getting around easily and avoiding traffic hotspots).
Another big plus for us was the floor plan is superb. Having each of the bedrooms having a beautiful en suite bathroom makes a big difference - no one has to share a bathroom. The separation from the bottom floor and the first floor is also a huge plus - you can always find a quiet private spot in the house.
The street is a dead end and there is no foot or car traffic to speak of and if you had smaller children - it would feel extremely safe and private.
Our Top Ten
1. You can walk to almost anything - fantastic location that avoids the craziness of downtown but still close enough that you can go anywhere.
2. Bike paths - it's near two of the islands' best bike paths and they go for miles and miles. Easy to bike to beaches and walks.
3. Big, modern house with all of the amenities - beautifully furnished and really set up for easy living and relaxation
4. Bedrooms each have a great bathroom - who wants to share a bathroom?
5. Fast internet, great TV service and cell coverage - bandwidth is like oxygen and this house has a lot.
6. Big seating areas - lots of room to stretch out on super comfortable couches and chairs.
7. Square footage - you can always get away in this house. It's big but the layout makes it feel even larger - no wasted space.
8. High ceilings - the top floor has very high, vaulted ceilings.
9. It's easy to drive almost anywhere - you would think this isn't an issue on Nantucket, but it's a really big issue. Gingy is perfectly located with easy driving routes to almost anywhere you want to go - close access to downtown but you can easily avoid the most congested spots.
10. Worry free - the house is pretty much new and everything works and is easy to use. Spend your vacation relaxing!
