EXTREMELY PRIVATE FAMILY COMPOUND

Shimmo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

'Windswept Shimmo' is the name of our extremely private, 5 acre family compound sited on a hill in Shimmo, a community overlooking the harbor and across from the town of Nantucket.

The property includes 'Windswept' (the main house) which has a truly wind swept view from either the widow's walk or the second floor deck, of Nantucket town, the harbor and it's boats, Brant Point, the jetties and Coatue. 'Windswept' sleeps 10 in 5 bedrooms with 4 full baths. 'Whim,' a cottage sleeps 5 in 2 bedrooms with 1 full bath. Also included in the compound is a 2 acre meadow habitat, a swimming pool with patio and a tennis court.

'Windswept' is 2 1/2 miles from town, a 5 minute walk to a 'Greenhound' bus stop and the Polpis bike path and a short, lovely walk past million dollar houses, to the harbor beaches.

'Windswept' has been lovingly owned by the same family for 46 years and is fully equipped for active, multi-generational family vacations or reunions.

About Pamela Hughes

I am the 'property manager' for my extended families compound on Nantucket. My parents bought Windswept in 1966 and now my siblings and I enjoy the property with our friends, children and grandchildren and also manage it as a rental property.

Pamela Hughes purchased this house in 1966

What makes this house unique

Nantucket is not only a destination for the wealthy, international set loaded with upscale shopping and restaurants but it is also an indescribably windswept, gorgeous, flora and fauna filled, beach surrounded island.
