Nantucket Town cottage description

Fore Cottage is distinctively Nantucket. Built by an Island fisherman in 1927, the sunny and bright Cottage is located on a quiet lane in the historic district of town. It offers a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and eat-in-kitchen. Preserving its 'olde Nantucket feel', including the original polished pine floors throughout, it has been updated with all conveniences including a new bath and kitchen. A separate laundry room is in the basement. Perfect accommodations for a couple, or a single traveler. The living room sofa becomes a comfortable queen sized sofabed for an occasional overnight guest. Appointed with Nantucket art and antiques, guests will enjoy a serene and comfortable visit while on Island.

At the rear of the cottage a privet hedge creates a little brick patio dining area with table and chairs and a gas bbq. Off-street parking for one small car is included. If you prefer leaving your car at home, our convenient location affords walking to almost anything... It's an easy walk to popular local restaurants, Stop & Shop, and bike paths. A 20 minute walk brings you to Main Street shops and restaurants. Bike paths to Madaket and Surfside are steps from our lane. The Wave is nearby, should you wish to hop on and explore farther points on Island. The property is graced by lovely lavender, roses and hydrangeas. It is the perfect Nantucket guest cottage for a vacation or honeymoon. One small pet may be permitted, but please inquire first.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: I've enjoyed living on the west and east coast and I'm now experiencing the South! I was an advertising executive in San Francisco, then New York City. I look forward to my summers on Nantucket. There's nothing else like it for me.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
                      I fell in love with Nantucket many years ago, and kept coming to the Island for vacations. One spring while visiting the area I flew over to the Island with a friend and I fell in love with this little cottage and purchased it that weekend. I wanted my own little home on Nantucket. The air, the ocean, and the landscapes unique to Nantucket draw me back every year.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      An older Nantucket cottage which was owned and built by a fisherman in the late 1920's. A delightful and charming place to call your own while you are visiting our special Island. It is carefully preserved, yet updated, charming, and comfortable to ensure guests have a very pleasant stay. A spacious enough cottage very suitable for either one vacationer or a couple. Experience a part of Nantucket's unique fishing and whaling history with a vacation at Fore Cottage.
