About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths Plus Enclosed Outdoor Hot and Cold Shower

This delightful vacation home is located approximately 500 ft off Cliff Road and is approximately 1 mile from Town. This Edge of Town location offers convenience to beach and bike paths. The house itself is updated and includes Corian counter tops. A spacious deck area overlooks a watershed area that offers fabulous sunset views. All rooms(except one) have a room air conditioner but most people prefer using the ceiling fans available in all rooms. During the day enjoy the wild flowers (depending on time of year) and red wing black birds amongst the moors and water shed. You'll love the opportunity to take walks in any direction that may lead to a private tennis club or various dirt paths and a different adventure with nature on a daily basis. This is a delightful Cape Cod style 'Collectible Cottage' that will make the heart sing and want you to came back again. If an attractive decor is part of the enjoyment of your Nantucket experience then this residence is for you.

As owners, we pride ourselves in keeping it attractively maintained and are seeking vacationers who willingly accept the responsibility of keeping it that way during their stay and have an appreciation that the summer residents following them will be seeking the same amenities upon their arrival. The exterior trim was painted in the Spring of 2013 and new appliances (washer, dryer and refrigerator) were installed in the Fall of 2013. The entire interior of house was painted in October 2014. There is also an outdoor enclosed hot and cold shower in the back of the house so you can wash off the sand on your feet when arriving back from the beach.

What makes this house unique

This home is located just one mile out of town yet is in a quiet setting on about one-half acre of property. The rear deck overlooks a small conservation area. It is convenient to Steppes Beach and Hinckley Lane Beach. The bike path to Madaket is about 500 feet from our house on Cliff Road. You can walk to Something Natural (for those of you familiar with the island).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful, Beautiful and the list continues. I am so grateful for this time. Thank you for having a perfect vacation home open for others to rejuvenate and relax. I look forward to another visit in the future.

Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this gem for 2 weeks and got the chance to enjoy the magical July 4th events on Nantucket. The house is well stocked and in a great location. For our teenagers, they could easily walk or drive their bikes downtown. But also far enough away from downtown to not be overwhelmed by the crowds. It's great that the house also had parking. It's tucked away in a quiet location. The house is rustic and not quite "luxury" as it has its' quirks, but that's also what made it so charming. We look forward to staying here again.

Depending upon your particular needs for a vacation experience Nantucket offers it. Whether you choose an active vacation including: theatre, restaurants, shops and auctions or whether you seek solace in the moors, bike paths, walks on the Tupancy links, Sanford Farms or on the beach or board walks (to name but a few) or just crash on the deck of our home with a few books and enjoy the sun, your Nantucket experience will be special and memorable. For the year-round or vacation sportsman, there's surf fishing, pond fishing (talk about solitude and nature..the ponds are it), and charter boats that will give you the 'big catch' of blues or stripers that you dream about but seldom attain. Those charter guys really know the water and you won't come back to shore disappointed. If you prefer not eating out at one of the fabulous restaurants, the house includes a kitchen table seating 8 people and a dining area table which seats 4-6 people. Also, a table on the deck seats 4-8 people. New washer, dryer and refrigerator as of October 2013.

Other Activities: Hiking, fabulous restaurants, just resting, walking the beach, picking up shells
