                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1977

                  About the owner: I am a lawyer from the Philadelphia region. My wife and I, along with our two teen age sons, have been coming to Nantucket for many years. This house is owned in trust by brother, sister and me. I manage the house on behalf of the family. We generally use it ourselves in August and rent in June, July and September. We love the house and its special place amidst the moors on a bluff overlooking the south shore.

                  Why the Owner Chose Madaquecham:
                  My parents brought our family to Nantucket in the early 1970s.Our family fell in love with the South shore. Back when land was affordable, my parents bought this lot and built the house we are offering to you for rent. My late mother designed the house to maximize the interior space and the surrounding views.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Unique and very private beach front; unparalleled privacy; remarkable moors surrounding property, whose shades of color change as the day progresses.
