The moment you drive up the circular shell driveway and see the stonework, gardens and wrap-around farmers’ porches, you're going to feel all the comfort and delight of being at your own dream home. From sunrise flooding the breakfast area until the last rays of the sun set over the moors, the house glows with the beauty of Nantucket’s ever-changing light. Custom built and brimming with unique architectural details and appointments of the highest quality, it is a house sophisticated enough for entertaining but comfortable enough to just kick off your flip flops, put on some music and relax after a tough day at the beach. “Incandescence” is decorated in a warm English country style with plenty of antique pine and chintz and a collection of vintage Ralph Lauren linens. And although this large (4,800 square foot) house comfortably sleeps 12, it is chock full of unpretentious places, intimate spaces, and the quirky little hideaways that make a classic Nantucket home linger forever in your memory ... [click More Details]

The Bedrooms and Baths: 'Incandescence' is spacious enough for two or even three families to vacation together. Each of the five bedrooms has its own beautifully tiled en suite bath, and there are two half baths off the 'public' rooms.

The huge master bedroom on the second floor boasts a private covered balcony and a spa-sized, luxurious, tumbled-marble bath with a jacuzzi tub, from which there are beautiful views across Tom Nevers and out to sea. The master bath also has his & her sinks and a large two-person, glass-enclosed shower with double shower-heads and multiple wall jets.

Two of the bedrooms on the first floor - one with a king bed, and one with a full bed and futon -are off a large, private hallway. Both rooms are large (particularly the king), and could easily serve as second 'masters' when two or three families vacation together. Another bedroom - with two twins (that can be converted to a king) - is off the living area. Bedroom #5 has a queen bed and is on the second floor.

The 'Living' Areas: The living room features cathedral ceilings, high gable windows, a wood burning fireplace, and French doors out to the deck, which is equipped with table, chairs, umbrella, gas grill and an outdoor shower. A wonderful gourmet kitchen with butter-yellow glazed cabinetry, limestone counters and stainless steel appliances awaits your culinary flair; an open floor plan to the large dining area allows hosts and guests to feel equally at home. Off the kitchen is a charming, inviting family room with stereo, TV and games for the whole family, plus a gas-fired fireplace to take the chill off those late summer/early Fall nights. Air conditioning, cable, high speed Internet, and WiFi allow you to remain comfortable and stay in touch, even on the “Far Away Land.”

We're coming for two weeks next summer!

We're coming for two weeks next summer!
  • Submitted: Sep 24, 2013

"We were so fortunate to return to this wonderful home for a second time -- originally November 2011 with friends. This time we came for a week and brought our family -- ages 19, 15 & almost 13. Each of them brought a friend for a portion of the vacation.

We have been coming to Nantucket for almost 30 years -- it is truly my favorite place in the world. This time didn't disappoint -- in large part because of this wonderful home to stay in.

We played cards on the patio at night, football in the yard, cooked fabulous dinners, had wonderful conversations, read lots of books, and just relaxed!

Your beautiful home made it the perfect vacation. Thanks for sharing! We look forward to next time. We're coming for two weeks next summer!

All the best . . . "

"Couldn't have asked for better weather and a perfect spot. Something for everyone here ages 4 - 69. Biking, running, shopping, beaching - everything was so accessible. And your lovely home made a cozy place to return to each time.

Lots of good memories, especially for the kids.

Thank you for everything!"

A Nantucket Visit with Friends from Switzerland

  • Submitted: Sep 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
"A lovely gathering of friends and family, made possible only by your terrific home! Thank you for making this a memorable get-away. We felt so alive with the winds on the beaches (and widow's walk) and the surf sparkling at times, then crashing at others. And daffodils galore! Fabulous! Thank you both!"

"A brief visit but had a lovely time! Your home made our time in Nantucket very comfortable and peaceful! We are very grateful!"

"Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! It made our stay here very pleasurable. We could have stayed longer!! Lots of greetings (from Hasliberg-Goldern in Switzerland)."

Our family of 10 had an amazing week at "Incandescence." The house is not just beautiful. but really so comfortable. There was a special corner for everyone.
The owners are both very attentive and responsive and made our stay even better than our usual Nantucket week.The take out suggestions and restaurant recommendations, especially for seafood and kids were terrific. We hope to return.

Don't bother looking any further, this is it. Perfectly accommodating, comfortable and beautiful. A home away from home.
