                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1988

                      About the owner: We are both professionals who have spent their careers in biomedical research and patient care. We love cooking, travel, the ocean, New York, and Nantucket.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tom Nevers (Tom Nevers Pond):
                      We have been coming to Nantucket for most of our adult lives. There is truly something magical about this island and it is addictive. After years of renting we became owners in 1988 and have continually upgraded and improved our home. It is a very special place for us and we try to rent to people who will treat it as their own. Many of the people who rent our home have done so for many years. We hope you will come and see what we mean.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our home is truly special for its privacy, views, and karma.
