Our home is a 1880's house with a new addition containing the master bedroom and kitchen/dining areas. There is a two bedroom cottage, located behind the main house, which sleeps three in two bedrooms. The cottage has its own kitchenette, washer/dryer and sitting area with television/DVD. They are located in a quiet area of Nantucket Town, about a 10 minute walk from Main Street. The master bedroom and kitchen/dining area have vaulted ceilings giving both areas a light-filled, spacious feel. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom.
We have extensively refurbished the house with new furniture, bedding, kitchen equipment as well as new flat screen televisions. We continue to work on the interior decoration and new photos will be posted as we complete work. The main house has central air-conditioning and the cottage has window units. The washer and dryer are located in the basement.

We have been visitors to Nantucket for more than 20 years and have always admired the charm of the island and unique atmosphere of Nantucket Town. After renting houses all over the island, we concluded that town offered the best combination of convenience and access to restaurants and shopping, with beaches only a short ride away. We knew about this house and were delighted to be able to purchase it when it came on the market last year.
Our house combines the charm of an older antique with the open feeling of contemporary architecture in the kitchen/dining area and master bedroom. Its location in town is a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance of both Main Street and a large grocery store. While a car is not necessary, it would be helpful to reach some of the farther beaches.
