This traditional, updated, two-story 'Nantucket upside-down Colonial' offers striking panoramic ocean and sunset views. The home is across the street from the ocean and adjacent to conservation land, with miles of quiet, unpaved paths for you to wander. It is close enough to town to enjoy its many fine shops and restaurants, yet far enough away from this island's busy town to allow for peace and relaxation while enjoying the ocean view or a star-filled sky.
Our smoke-free home is also close to 'Sconset' and all of its charms. Dine on the spacious deck and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean. The house also offers an enclosed outdoor shower and a gas barbecue grill.
The first floor has three bedrooms, two full baths- one with tub and shower, the other with shower, and laundry. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, the second bedroom also has a queen bed and the third bedroom has a set of twin beds. The master bedroom has an HDTV with full digital cable.
Walk upstairs into the large A-frame open floor plan with updated kitchen (including range, microwave, blender, margarita maker, coffeemaker), deck off of the living room, dining room, living room with comfortable seating for up to 7, 32' HD cable TV and DVD player, home theater system, desk/workstation with high-speed internet, and half-bath.
There are two sets of linens provided for each bed as well as a full set of towels and beach towels. Beach chairs are also included. The yard is very private with naturally landscaped borders.
Our home is not far from the bike path from town to Sconset, where you can enjoy biking, jogging, rollerblading, or pick up the shuttle to town. It is also just a short leisurely walk (about 5-10 minutes) to the uncrowded beach at the end of the street, where there is also a playground and ball field.

About Rich Hjulstrom
We had been Nantucket vacationers for a number of years when we finally decided to become landowners about 15 years ago and have a place we could enjoy and share Nantucket's beauty and charm with others.
Rich Hjulstrom purchased this House in 2004
Why Rich Hjulstrom chose Tom Nevers
The view from the upstairs living area sold us immediately. Just breathtaking on a clear day. The neighborhood is quiet and near the beach. A perfect location for a beach house, yet close enough to the bike path to make it accessible to town or 'Sconset.
Sports & Adventure Activities
My parents own this house, so I got to be one of the privileged few to stay there for Thanksgiving. :) I hadn't seen the work that had been done since we originally looked at the house (I'm in college out of state), and I loved the house! It was comfortable and cozy, and the view of the ocean was breathtaking. The distance from 'Sconset was entirely manageable, and even town was a pleasant ride (by bike or car). I cannot wait to stay there again later!
Great place for families.
We enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room for 6 adults. Less than 10 minute walk to the beach. We had a vehicle and bikes and were thankful we did as this home is off the beaten path, but we liked the quiet. Deer and rabbits in the yard, seals swimming down at the beach-just lovely.
House has everything you need for a great vacation.
Best part of this house is the great view of the ocean from the house and deck. Beach chairs, beach umbrella and all the towels you would ever need are provided.
If you are looking for a quiet setting outside of town this is it. Short walk to tom nevers beach. A lot of history to tom nevers beach if that is something that interests you. On the rougher side in terms of waves, we have 2 kids, 3 and 2, so we opted for beaches on the northern side of the island.
This is our second year renting here and will be back for a third. The house has everything you need and nice updated bathrooms.
A little bit of Heaven
Beautiful late summer stay with adult children. The house had everything we needed. It had that great combination of a cozy older home which has been updated as needed, with modern bathrooms and kitchen appliances. Beds were comfy and everything was clean. Good televisions (essential for the Patriots season opener!) It has a nice private yard. But the upper deck is where we spent most of our time when we were at home. You have a view of the ocean, even the sound of the surf. Perfect spot to watch the sunset each evening. Heavenly! We had a car, which I would recommend. It is about a 20 minute drive into town or to Sconset. Even to get to the beach, you'd want at least a bike.
Perfect location, beautiful view, bright & clean
We have been renting this property for many years, it is perfect for our family! Close to Tom Nevers beach offering beautiful breezes and sunsets. Located between Town and Siasconset making it easy to explore the entire island. The house is bright, clean, and offers all the conveniences we love (upscale bathrooms, gas grille, outdoor shower, washer, dryer, dishwasher and linens). This has become our second home, we will continue to rent this property for years to come!
Best Place Yet
We've rented on the island for several years now and have stayed in different homes in various parts of Nantucket. We've been looking for a place that we can come back to year after year and this house is it. It's updated and immaculately kept. It was in a perfect location - close enough to be near town but far enough away to really feel like a getaway. The views are breathtaking with a nice size yard. It was a wonderful and very comfortable stay for 4 adults and 2 children. Our 6 year old keeps asking when we're going back and the answer is not soon enough!
