Property description

Welcome to our ''happy'' family retreat. This upside down house is filled with sunshine and lots of original artwork. The living room/dining room, with its paddle fan, is adjacent to the open kitchen--for easy, informal entertaining. The kitchen is well equipped with a food processor, blender, mixer, double ovens, toaster, toaster oven, microwave, and an abundance of cookbooks. The stocked play loft is over the kitchen in view of the living room. There is room in the loft for sleeping bags, if need be. The dining area is surrounded by windows overlooking the wraparound deck. The upper deck provides viewing of the beautiful sunsets and the distant Atlantic Ocean, while the lower deck has a suspended porch swing for quiet reading time.

Five of the six bedrooms have their own doors to the outside decks for cool summer breezes. The sixth bedroom has windows on three of its four sides. Three bedrooms have queen beds and three bedrooms have two twins per room. There are plenty of portable fans in the house, if needed. Beach towels and beach chairs await your arrival.

There is a gas grill on the property.

Keywords: An Upside Down, Nantucket Shingled House, with Upper and Lower Decks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: The house is owned by three sisters who inherited it from their parents-who built it. We gather from all over the country for our yearly family reunions. Two of the three sisters are interior designers, and we think the house has some charming, unique features.

Why the Owner Chose Shimmo:
My parents came from Ohio, and were first drawn to Nantucket by its charm and its access to water. With its quaint, shingled architecture to the ever-blooming hydrangeas, to the gorgeous window boxes displayed in abundance-there is beauty everywhere. The restaurants are world class, the beaches are pristine, and the shopping is fun. One step off the plane or ferry and your daily stresses evaporate in the breezy ocean air. We love it here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We find that being in the Nantucket house, with its close proximity to the bike path (across the street) for walkers, joggers and cyclists, makes it easy to stay in shape. The house is just a few doors away from the shuttle stop, so if one family member takes the car, another can hop the shuttle for lunch in town. Moors End Farm is just a half mile down the road, and has an array of their own fresh cut flowers, as well as fruits and vegetables for purchase. We're just far enough out of town to find it quiet, but close enough to get there fast. The grocery is 5 minutes away. The beaches are 10-15+ minutes away, depending on location chosen. Perfect spot!
