Property description

This charming three bedroom cottage is a a short walk (less than 1/4 mile) to the beach down a private access path. We built the cottage in 1978 and have kept the unit updated because our children and grandchildren use it. We rent it only for short periods of the year.

It is immaculately kept with butternut tree wood panelling, two living areas, an upstairs bedroom with a wonderful view of the sea from the front window; there is a full bath next to the bedroom. There is one bedroom with twin beds and another bedroom that can be configured as two twin beds or a king size bed on the first floor; there is a full bath on the first floor.

There is a huge deck behind the house with table and chairs-perfect for any meal but special for evenings as you watch the sunset. The home is in a quiet part of 'Sconset a short walk or bike ride from 'Sconset center where there is a general store (ice cream a specialty), four restaurants, and a post office.

There is a huge fireplaced family room and an adjacent living room with a vaulted ceiling and another TV. Two full tile baths were recently redone. Comes with lots of beach books,puzzles and games. This is the perfect place for a family and friends to relax in the summer.

Nantucket has a huge number of activities, from beaching and biking to fishing, golf and tennis, Within a mile, there is a public golf course, a lifeguarded beach, and the start of two long bike paths for family safe riding. In the city of Nantucket, there are museums and specialty shops.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I am a physician and Professor at Harvard Medical School. My wife and I first came to Nantucket in 1972 and we have been back every summer since. I worked in the hospital for 5 years and then we bought the land and built this house. Our children and grandchildren consider Nantucket their summer home. This is easy living. There are a huge variety of summer activities available on the island including outdoor activities such as fishing, tennis, golf, biking, hiking, beach walking and the like. I enjoy making Nantucket Lightship baskets and there are many classs that one can take to learn this unique island art form.

Why the Owner Chose Siasconset:
Our location is on Nantucket, a busy summer resort, but it is in a very quiet part of the island. Many people with houses in the Town of Nantucket come to 'Sconset for the summer because of its cool ocean breezes and relaxed pace of life. The area near our house is safe for little children to play, while there are lots of activities very close by so you or your older children never wonder-what to do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our location is always cool. In the summer the prevailing wind is from the southwest and we are on the southwest shore. As you listen to the ocean washing up on the beach you feel the cool sea breezes and can enjoy being outside. The beach is a short walk away, so you can stroll down before dinner and collect shells or just sit and watch the waves.
