About Chris Detmer

Owners are long-time visitors to Nantucket who rented each summer for the first 13 years of their marriage. Always wanted to own on Nantucket, which became a dream-come-true in 2008.

Chris Detmer purchased this house in 2008

Why Chris Detmer chose Nantucket Island

We wanted to be close to town while also have some land, privacy and walking access to the harbor, conservation land and Alter Rock. The location is central while also being extremely quiet and peaceful.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, comfortable, spacious manicured yard, with a wonderful large back deck looking over wetlands.

The perfect Nantucket get-away

  • 5 of 5

We could not have imagined a more perfect Nantucket vacation! This welcoming home is close enough to the hustle and bustle of town, but is also private so as to enjoy relaxing days and evenings at home. We spent nearly two weeks at this lovely home with our two golden retrievers - all of us had a terrific time. This home is comfortable, welcoming, extremely well-appointed, and impeccably maintained. We can't wait to go back, and highly recommend it!
