The floor plan of the first floor is perfect for entertaining with a gracious front hall, guest closet, powder room, and a beautifully graceful staircase. To the left of the front hall is a sunken living room, which has been decorated in a nautical theme. It includes one of the five flat screen TV’s and leads to a convenient mud room and back entrance to the garage and driveway. On the right of the front hall is the library, stocked with an assortment of books for all ages and a variety of board games. The library flows into a dining room that seats up to ten with a french doors that lead to the patio deck.
Through the dining room’s swinging door is the kitchen, a breakfast counter that seats four on bar stools, and a floor to ceiling window enclosed breakfast room with table and chairs that seats six. Through more french doors is additional access to the patio deck. The patio is complete with outdoor furniture and perfect for entertaining or a casual family barbecue prepared on our new stainless steel Weber gas grill. The outdoor table seats six with additional buffet seating for six more people.
The patio deck connects to a two car garage with a finished second floor where you will find a sunny study that includes a queen sleeper sofa, chaise lounge, and a 42 inch flat screen TV. There is a ceiling fan to circulate the cool breezes through this room’s many windows.
The second floor of the main house includes a generous landing with meeting bench and central dresser for overflow linens. In the front of the house is the master bedroom suite that has wonderfully high ceilings and a ceiling fan suggestive of tropical décor. Cheerful yellow walls accented with white trim coordinate well with the white painted furniture. The room includes a king size bed, circular writing table, additional fold out desk, and flat screen TV. The Bedroom connects to a spacious dressing room with three closets and a separate dresser. The master bath includes his and her sinks, a large multi-drawer vanity with ample storage, and bath/shower.
The second bedroom has a pastel blue and green color theme, a queen bed, fold out desk, bath, and a large walk in closet. The third bedroom on the second floor is decorated with Lily Pulitzer linens and is best noted by the incredible sunlight that sets this room a glow at the end of the day.
The beautifully carved staircase gracefully continues to the third floor and large fourth bedroom. It has a full and twin bed as well as a flat screen TV, a bath and decoratively tiled shower. Several inflatable beds can be added for overflow guests.

Wonderful vacation spot for Young Family
Wonderful vacation spot for Young Family
Our family had a wonderful vacation in Nantucket last July. We are still thinking about what a great time we had over a year later. The owner went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was perfect and that our one year old daughter was comfortable in their home. They provided various baby necessities and even had some toys for her to play with! The home is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed being able to make the short walk to town but also have a short drive to many family friendly beaches. The owner also had wonderful suggestions that made our stay in Nantucket more enjoyable. We can't say enough kind words about their housekeeper who made sure all our needs were met. She was friendly, thoughtful and good with our young daughter. She was as available as we needed her to be without being intrusive on our family vacation. We highly recommend this vacation home in Nantucket. It's like staying at a 4 star resort in the privacy of your own home!

About the owner: We are a family of four who live in the Boston area. We are able to visit Nantucket throughout the year but cannot always commit to a full summer because of our careers. We enjoy sharing our home with other families who appreciate the beauty of our home and the island of Nantucket.
Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
Our property offering is special because of it's unique location with proximity to town and beaches, immaculate and lovely home, and the care of our live-in house keeper who has worked for our family for 20 years in Boston and Nantucket.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We particularly love the convenience of our home. We adore the newly renovated Cliff Road Bike Path that connects to the Madaket bike path for a longer ride (5.6 miles) to Millie's Restaurant and a visit to Madaket beach before a ride back. While you are on your outing, our housekeeper will straighten out the house and babysit, cook or shop as needed. Come home and cool off in our large outdoor shower and have a nap before a stroll to town for dinner.
