Nantucket Town house description

Time and Place Homes' Cliff Road is perfect for those who seek a sophisticated in-town residence and the ability to host in a gracious yet relaxed manner, just 3 minutes to Town or Step's Beach.

Main House

Visitors will be captivated by the grandeur of the 2-story foyer, and the 2 guest wings that flank the courtyard. Beyond which lie the manicured lawn, pool, and spa, herb and cutting gardens, and private Coffin Park access.

Main Floor
Beyond the gracious 2-story staircase is the dramatic 25' art gallery. The family room has 42' plasma TV, Surround Sound system, and 1/2 bath. Looking through the large media/family room is the loggia, offering Park access. Ascending the elegant staircase to the landing on the second floor (lit by 2 white Venetian glass chandeliers), guests have the option of going to the exterior balcony or to the Great Room.

Great Room
The Great Room enjoys multiple French door openings overlooking the pool and spa as well as Coffin Park; Cathedral ceilings, a handsome floor to ceiling fireplace; and beautiful heart of pine flooring. Flanked on 3 sides by balconies, it is light-filled. Decorated in linen, turquoise, and butternut yellow, and furnished with the owner's collection of Swedish, French and American antiques and artifacts; anchoring the seating area is a Thomas O'Brien carpet.

Dining Area
Behind the Living Room area and in front of the raised kitchen is the dining area—easily serviced by the kitchen and positioned in the casual Nantucket style with a large distressed white oval pine table and chairs, for views of the large fireplace as well as the glorious outdoors. There is also ample outdoor dining on the adjacent second floor balcony and poolside.

This is a serious kitchen for a serious cook—and yet one that is also conducive to fun gatherings of family and friends. Anchored by a large Viking range and Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, it also has 2 Waterworks sinks and 2 Bosch dishwashers, this kitchen also boasts 2 large islands/work tables that are perfect for prep work or eat-in dining. The large kitchen opens beautifully to one of the two large rear balconies, which make delightful outdoor dining areas.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a handsome library and cozy sitting area. It also has French doors opening to a balcony facing Coffin Park and enjoys spectacular views.

Master Suite
This Master Suite has it all—connecting private study and private balcony with park views, as well as a large walk-in closet, laundry, and luxurious master bath. There a sitting area in front of the balcony’s French doors, as well as seating on the balcony for one’s morning coffee or evening cocktail. Practicality has been a careful consideration as well. Features =42” plasma and across from the King-size bed and a large walk-in closet, complete with the Master’s own stacked washer/dryer unit. In addition, there is a small separate dressing area next to the Master bath. The Master bath—all Waterworks, has two sinks, a separate WC, and a multi-spray, oversized shower that allows for plenty of natural light.

Third Floor Loft/Widow’s Walk
A fun and pleasant surprise is the unique loft area above the kitchen. The large widow’s walk is accessible from the loft, and from that widow’s walk one can partake in amazing views of the Town spires and the harbor and Nantucket Sound beyond. It boasts its own 42' plasma TV.

East Guest Wing

The East Wing Cottage (also Provence in style) houses one of three Master Suites (two of which are on the first floor). One approaches this cottage through a lovely garden set in Belgian stone adjacent to the court. The entry foyer sets the tone with a French limestone floor, crystal chandelier, and elegant gilt mirror and mahogany foyer table. To the left is the cottage’s living room with raised fire hearth fireplace, light pickled pine walls, and heart of pine floors. Opening onto this living room is a galley kitchen and food-prep island.

Completing the charming space is a ¾ Waterworks bath (with park views) and loft sleeping quarters (with two 2 mattresses---younger ones will love climbing the ladder!). Decorated in fresh, crisp tones of linen, pink, and Kittery green, this living area ties in with the Provence-style theme. Practicality has not been overlooked, however, with the overstuffed charming club chairs in shades of coral, linen, and green, anticipating that a family with young children could host as many as 4 guests in this cottage and, similarly, serve dinner from your own kitchen.

Flanking the foyer is the master (with King) and bath, decorated in relaxing tones of linen and taupe with a splash of color here and there. Features flat screen Plasma TV. The Waterworks bathroom carries through the linen and taupe theme in its Italian limestone.

South Guest Wing

The adjacent 2-bedroom Guest Wing is entered through the charming porte cochere and includes a family/media room complete with two bedrooms (both with Queen beds) and two baths. The guest wing was designed so that it can easily accommodate, but can also be used by, 2 couples (each enjoying a private en-suite bath) who share a common and private entertaining space.

West Guest Wing

The West Wing Cottage (or Pool House) is accessed through the art gallery; the West Wing also has its own living room, prep kitchen, and laundry, as well as Master bedroom (with Queen) and bath. This suite enjoys multiple French doors opening to a landscaped patio and the pool and spa and cutting gardens beyond. Decorated in vibrant variations of aqua, Chinese red, and cream.

Exterior Features

The alluring lap pool and 8-person spa (complete with dual cascading waterfalls) are enhanced by the dramatic poolside mahogany deck. There is also a raised terrace overlooking the pool with picture frame views of Coffin Park.

                      Why Nantucket Town:
                      Once I’ve found that perfect setting, I firmly believe in building the perfect vacation home to suit it. Cliff Road Estate is literally built into a preserve, offering so much privacy, it’s as if you have your own private Nantucket. Incredibly, you remain mere steps away from the beach, trails and the very best boutiques and restaurants that Nantucket has to offer. Though to me, the piece de resistance for this property is that it accommodates four families or more while allowing each person their own very private space and “bonding opportunity”. Gathering at your leisure is an unhurried affair, free of stress. I personally oversaw the construction and decorating in this vacation home, and I put some of my favorites here: Waterworks fixtures, dramatic cathedral ceilings, four balconies, which all blend into the most open and light-filled atmosphere. Famed architect, Andrew Kotchen suggested a porte cochere, so that we could preserve a little old-world style, free of today’s hustle and bustle. My secret favorite spot? The rooftop widow’s walk offers an unparalleled view of Nantucket Sound, perfect for watching Fourth of July fireworks.
