This custom home with dramatic ocean views is a shingle style design, with post & beam construction. It features a spacious, open floor plan and extensive windows bringing in light and fresh ocean breezes. A central hallway adds light to the interior of the first floor from a cupola high above. A massive granite fireplace centers the living room and a gourmet kitchen featuring a Viking gas range, Sub Zero refrigerator, expansive granite center Island; temperature controlled wine storage and two dishwashers. A wrap-around porch and spacious private patio provides for outside living. Ocean views abound from second floor decks. Evening sunset views across the moors is a great way to end the day.
Property is situated on a cul-de-sac, private road with ample lawns for kids to play safely. Nantucket has an extensive network of paved bike/walking trails to safely travel all over the Island. A seasonal bus service will also take you to any part of the Island. World class restaurants, antique stores, deep sea fishing and long days at one of the numerous beaches are just a few things to do, using this home as a base.
The center of the village of Siasconset is a short walk and features dinning; post office; general store and many buildings dating to the 17th century. Summers are generally warm with gentle ocean breezes and walking is a pleasure with reduced speed limits in the village - "20 is plenty in Sconset".

Although I call Siasconset home, I travel extensively (particularly in the summer and fall) in connection with my work as an ocean explorer. As a founding director of the Aurora Trust for Ocean Exploration and Education I spend much of my time searching the sea for ancient ship wrecks and the wonders of the deep ocean. My work involves extensive travel and time at sea during our 6 month working season. Much of this travel is in the Mediterranean Sea and the countries that border it. Nantucket keeps me connected with the ocean while at home and is a great location to have as a home base.
Craig Mullen purchased this house in 1994
Eastport was built in 1994 and enlarged in 204. It was built around massive timbers of pine with an open center rising up to the cupola perched on the center of the ridge some 35' above the ground. This feature allows light and air to flood the interior center of the house. Eastport- named after my first Company - was not built as a vacation rental and, with it's post & beam construction and standard residential configuration (not an upside down house) it provides a multitude of spaces to privately commune with an island vacation. The property is available only when I'm at sea during the summer and early fall.
I particularly enjoy the privacy of this location. It is near enough to walk or bike to the village; beach or even into town, but is not in a highly traveled location of the island . I love the sound and smell of the nearby ocean. Built on a cup-de-sac, it's perfect for a family vacation with young children.
What an incredible home; spectacular amenities and a private location. The owner was easy to contact and very helpful with all my questions. My entire family wants to return in 2016. Great family games in the large, privately enclosed yard with privacy hedges. This stay could not have been better and I highly recommend this property to others who love to hear the waves at night.
This is our 3rd time back to summer at Eastport. We love the house. It is most accommodating to our family gathering....as we also have taken advantage of the nearby cottage. The house is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped with 2 ovens, 2 sinks, 2 dishwashers and a wine fridge to go along with the main fridge as we all enjoy gathering for drinks and dinner. The bluestone patio invites us throughout the day--around the table enjoying a bite to eat or in the lounge chairs reading a book. Morning coffee on the second floor front patio is also welcoming with the ocean in the distance.
The house is close to Low Beach where our guys fished and we watched the seals. It's also a short walk or bike ride to Sconset Village. We enjoyed a daily shop at nearby Bartlett Farm truck to literally eat farm to table.
Familiar with the island we enjoyed many of the beaches but were always happy to return "home" to Eastport at the end of our day. It's always sad to leave Nantucket but we hope to be back again next summer!
We had the opportunity to take an early spring break in Sconset. Not the most ideal time weather wize, but the warmth and ambience of the house (Eastport) overcame the spring showers of Sconset. The daffodils around the house didn't seem to mind the weather and the a warm fire in an absolutely magnificent fireplace was a wonderful gathering point at the end of the day. The kitchen was obviously designed and outfitted by someone who loves to cook and was big enough for all of us (6 adults) to gather in to create great meals when we dinned at the house.
We did have some bright sunny days and it was a pleasant walk to the village, Cod Fish Park and along the Sconset bluff. Eastport was a perfect getaway and the house was all it was advertised to be. We hope to make this a tradition - beat the crowds of summer.
We have had the opportunity to stay at this location on a couple of occasions and were completely charmed by its architecture, the openness of the rooms and the magnificent kitchen, where most of our entertaining has been done. This property provides exceptional privacy, solitude and the opportunity to completely unwind. Leaving is the most difficult part of renting this property!
My wife and I recommend this location to anyone who wants to get away - in style.
A warm, large, and charming house, which speaks of Nantucket with grace and grandeur. Plenty of room for everyone, with private places, and a lookout tower! From the fist approach, the house is characteristically New England and especially, Nantucket. Very warm furnishing and well equipped. Really wasn't anything we needed that wasn't in the house already. Location is great on a quiet area with easy ride to town, and great views on the way. Fabulous kitchen, built for a real chef and a living room with spectacular stone fireplace. Felt at home from the first view of from the driveway, and it only got better.
