Nantucket Island is 30 miles out to sea accessible by plane or ferry. The island is mostly flat with Irish like moors, a main town with cobblestone streets, a few main roads and miles of bike paths. Most of Nantucket's wonderful beaches are public.

Our house is located just outside of the village of Sconset which is on the elbow of Nantucket. We have a general store with fantastic ice cream and muffins, a post office, liquor store, a few fabulous restaurants and the Sconset beach which is great for long walks. The main action is at the Sconset Casino which is a tennis club where non members can buy court time. They also show movies 3 times a week.

Sconset is famous for rose covered cottages and tiny lanes. Our house is a 2 minute drive, 5 minute bike ride or 12 minute walk from the village. Located in a residential area on a corner lot with .5 acre garden and lawn surrounded by trees we offer both privacy and quiet.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: Retired teacher and tennis teaching pro living on Nantucket and in Buenos Aires.

Why the Owner Chose Siasconset:
I fell in love with Nantucket, bought the property and taught at the Sconset Casino for many years; my family has come here for 30 yrs.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I helped design and built my home and over the years have expanded it and enjoyed improving it. I have an extensive garden, including a vegetable garden, and blueberries, blackberries and two apple trees. It's a lot of work but I enjoy being outside. Professionally I have taught tennis at a university and nearby at the Sconset Casino, where I play tennis regularly to this day. A great joy is the love of Sconset and Nantucket by my family, two daughters and four grandchildren who have been coming to the island every year since 1979.
