Nantucket Town house description

Very private renovated home sleeps six, 2.5 baths. Private enclosed backyard, ideal for children. Outstanding location just off Cliff Road; 7 minute walk to beaches, 15 minute walk to town. Close to the Westmoor Club, bicycle paths, Steps and Washing Pond Beaches. Main house has been recently upgraded to include Central Air and Heat throughout. Optional additional separate bedroom available (sleeps one) with private bath, in carriage house, making it a very private 4 bedroom rental.

Surrounding Area: Our house is located on a charming rural country road (unpaved) at the edge of town, but an easy walk to beaches and a 15 minute walk to town center. We overlook wetlands, the Westmoor Club beyond, and are far enough off Cliff Road so there is minimal traffic noise, yet easy access. We have mature landscaping, so in season the house cannot be seen from the road. Both the front and rear yards are exceptionally private - the rear yard in enclosed and has two gated entrances, so it is perfect for young children (we have two). We are also quite near the Cliff Road bicycle path, so that is always an enjoyable activity and a good way to see more of the island - especially the bay side beaches (Steps, Washing Pond, etc)

Restaurants: We are within a 5 to 15 minute drive of all the resort restaurants, but given the privacy and setting of the house, we find both ourselves and guests frequently dining and relaxing on the rear deck with a barbecue, or a more formal meal if desired. We have a restaurant pedigree DCS oven suitable for all professional cooking purposes.

                              We are located just off Cliff Road, just beyond the busy part of town, near the Westmoor Club, Steps Beach, etc. A short bike or drive to fantastic Washing Pond beach and a short bike or walk to Something Natural. Very private and very quiet, with mature landscaping, nice front yard and fenced in rear yard with lots of hydrangeas. Nantucket shell driveway.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1998

                              Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
                              I have known Nantucket since my college days, when I worked as a waiter at The Club Car. It's always been a special place, and I wanted my daughters to enjoy the same experiences I have had there. The house appealed because of it's flexibility (the property can handle a large family or just a couple) and rural feel, but very close to town. I travel too much to get here, so I like to relax once I've arrived and not worry about driving miles to town. The new bicycle path on Cliff has been a great treat for my children and an unexpected location bonus. The property has mature plantings so during the summer it is difficult to see any neighbor from the house.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The property is close to town and major beaches (a few minutes via car, 10 minutes bike), yet is very private, with mature landscaping on a rural road. Privacy and proximity.
