PRIVATE & SECLUDED LOCATION (1.25 acre property that abuts conservation land)

This ''Green'' Nantucket home was designed and renovated in 2005. The house has 2 large Solar panels on the bedroom southwest facing roof that provides 100% of the hot water (not electricity) May through October. The solar thermal panels are also connected to my radiant heat in the winter.

The house has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4. The first floor is 1400 square feet, the lower level 700 square feet. The home is open like a loft, bright, airy with a lot of windows and light. There are ceiling fans in the kitchen, great room and master bedroom that help keep the house cool in the summer.. This is a 2000 square foot 2 bedroom home, not a small, cramped cottage.

About Malcolm Brooks

I have lived year round on Nantucket for 30 years and own an advertising/web design company. I'm a designer and multi-media artist. I rent the house for extra income in July and August, get off the island for 5+ weeks, take a road trip with my girlfriend and visit friends and family.

Malcolm Brooks purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

This house is in the woods, abuts 25 acres of conservation land, super private and secluded with no nosey neighbors. It's at the very end of a dead end street that has no traffic on it. You can drive to town in eight minutes (depending on traffic). Deer walk through my property often, you can hear the ocean and breaking waves. It's a very special location!

excellent visit to Nantucket

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Malcom's home was excellent. We like to cook and the home has a fantastic kitchen - well equipped and spacious. The location is very private. The bathrooms are great and there is comfortable furniture in the living room. I have two suggestions (not criticisms):

put a tv in the living room (instead of the 2nd bedroom, perhaps) and some cushions for the outdoor furniture. Malcom is helpful and welcoming.

Great Nantucket Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We - a German couple with our 8 year old son - really loved our stay at Malcom's House. It has a great private setting and a wonderful open space feeling with a lot of sun light. We liked how Malcolm furnished his home with a lot of love for details. Malcolm was a great host, very responsive and helpful. We took the bikes to get into town and to the beaches close by, but the car to get to Cisco Beach which is great for surfing and boogie boarding. Nantucket Surf School offers high standard surf lessons there. Our son loved it. All in all a perfect location for our summer vacation! We would have loved to stay longer and hope to come back!

Great Space, Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights and this house was an excellent fit for our family of 4 - very open, bright, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is perfect - everything you could possibly need, easy to work in and keep clean. The beds are comfortable too - which is usually hard for us to find. We had some very hot days and the AC downstairs kept up with it and we never had to turn on the AC in the upstairs bedroom.

Location is good - we definitely needed a car. The beach at the end of the road was closed for nesting birds so we drove to a beach every day. It's an easy drive into town and good central starting point for any adventure.

Malcolm is a pleasure to deal with - I highly recommend this home!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week, and Malcolm's house was perfect. We did a lot of cycling and having a bike path at the end of the private road was very convenient to get into town or to the beach. It was wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The house was well appointed, especially the kitchen which had everything you needed. Beds were very comfortable. Thanks Malcolm for sharing your home.

Great Location and House

  • 5 of 5

House is in a perfect location, about 1.5 miles up the street from Surfside Beach - our favorite - and a few miles from town. Bike path is right at end of lane, from there you can run or bike all over island. My athletic teens took an am run or bike ride down to Surfside or in o town every morning

Kitchen is well-equipped and first floor is very large and sunny. House is extremely private and peaceful, which was very important to us. EXCELLENT WIFI and cell service, which was also important since we both had to stay in some contact with work. Easy drive to town or large/new Stop and Shop for groceries.

We stayed for two weeks and hit every beach on the island depending on the day. Highlight was driving out to Great Point - in our SUV - glorious day and we had the beach to ourselves.
