Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am the fifth generation of my family to own a vacation home in Nantucket. My mother's great-grandparents first visited the island in 1910 and my great-grandfather purchased a family summer house in 1924. I grew up coming to Nantucket in the summers, and am happy to be able to continue this legacy for my children. We enjoy sharing the house with others who love Nantucket as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
We purchased this house as a vacation home for our family because of its rich history, proximity to the center of town, large private yard and comfortable interior space. It is the perfect mix of privacy, convenience, historic charm and modern amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is located within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants, historic sites, and the ferry docks. It is one block from the Madaket Bike Path and is a short bike ride to nearby beaches.
