My wife Susan and I were designing and building high end homes in Aspen, Colorado when we bought Gull Cottage. We bought this home as a way to start to move back to our New England roots.
We now live in Portsmouth, NH where we have started a new business called Therma-HEXX which manufactures award winning products ThermaPAVER and ThermaCEILING.
We purchased Gull Cottage in 2006 because it was in the perfect location within town but also near the beaches on a quiet street. We did a major renovation by updating the baths, kitchen and master bedroom and re-insulated the house while keeping the historic charm of the building intact.
We loved the historic nature of the house with its quintessential Nantucket charm.
This house has 4 large bedrooms which accommodates 8 very comfortably. The brick patio is surrounded by privet and hydrangeas. We have a driveway that can accommodate 1 car.
The house is very well outfitted with Matouk linens and Frette towels. The bed mattresses are custom made 5 star hotel beds.
The kitchen has high end Thermador appliances. There are two laundries, one upstairs and one downstairs.
Gull Cottage used to be one of three interconnected houses that made up the old Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Our house was used as nurses quarters.
