This 'upside-down house', meaning the living areas of living room and dining room are upstairs, while bedrooms are downstairs, is ideal for a quiet, low-stress experience. Biking, birding, beach- combing and connecting with loved ones are fit in well here. The property abuts approximately 300 acres of open moors owned by the Linda Loring Conservation Foundation. The upstairs deck overlooks this conservation land and has a distant view of Nantucket Sound as well. The walk to the Dionis Beach entrance is about a fourth of a mile. There is a good place to keep bikes behind the house on the rear deck. We regret we cannot allow pets and no smoking is allowed. You can see photos of the house at www.

RainbowMoors.shutterfly.com or check us out by 'flying in' using Google Earth to 9 Alliance Lane, Nantucket, MA

Other Activities: live theatre, movies at Nantucket's new Dreamland theatre or the Starlight, live entertainment at the Atheneum or numerous venues downtown, great dining, boat excursions, tennis at the Jetties, kayaking in the harbor, sunset sails, ghost walks on historic streets, Audubon society walks to learn birding, and just plain doing nothing. There are 2 excellent book shops on island to tempt even the hard core Kindle user ---Bookworks and MItchell's. Folks eager to go 4-wheeling will also find a dramatic site, the Great Point area, where it's possible to drive on the beach if you rent the right vehicle.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We have loved this property since discovering it for sale in the fall of 1993. We have put on a new cedar roof, extended mahogany decks on the north and west, and redone many interior features as well. We have summered here every summer, first with our children and now with our grandchildren for 3 decades. In the winter we live in Concord, MA, and Davis, CA.

Why the Owner Chose Dionis:
This property has a spectacular location, with dramatic views to the west across hundreds of acres of conservation land owned by the Linda Loring Foundation, and a peek at Nantucket Sound from the second floor. deck. It is outside the bustle of town yet town is very convenient, even by bike.
