Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I have been renting on Nantucket since the late seventies. I wanted to buy my own little cottage at some point. When I saw the Sweet Briar for sale I knew that the Sweet Briar was the right one for me. I wanted to share my home with guests so they, too, may enjoy an affortable vacation on Nantucket.

Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
I was enchanted by the Sweet Briar and felt that it was time to buy my own cottage on Nantucket.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is only one mile and a half from downtown Nantucket and secluded enough in a nice courtyard and views of nature, for privacy. The best of both worlds!
