This breathtaking, hidden gem with magnificent landscaping will add a touch of serenity to your Nantucket get-away. Nestled only 1.5 miles from the ferry docks and half-a-mile from Nantucket Town's Historic District, it is a perfect location for easy access to the Island's restaurants, shops, and beaches, yet also provides complete privacy. This captivating compound is accessible through a privacy gate which opens to a stunning view of the entire expanse of the property. To the left lies the one-acre, ten feet deep pond with an on-shore dory for easy enjoyment. A stone path leads first to the cottage on the right and then to the main house situated towards the rear of the property. Many mature trees grace the lawn with alluring sitting areas placed throughout.
A shaded brick patio adorns the kitchen entrance of the main house. The functional kitchen features granite countertops and custom cabinets; it is ready for use if you are not dining at one of Nantucket's many fine restaurants. The kitchen opens onto the dining and sitting area, complete with an extraordinary view of the pond. Off the kitchen is a bathroom with a walk-in tile shower, a bedroom with a king-size bed, and a den with comfortable seating. French doors in the den lead to a stone patio enhanced with a pergola, gas grill, and seating. The upstairs features two large bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king, plus a full sleeper sofa, and armoires. The bathroom has a tile tub surround. The finished basement includes the washer and dryer, a queen sleeper sofa, 40' flat screen, and is well stocked with board games and puzzles. There is an outdoor shower attached to the main house.
The main room in the quintessential country cottage has an open kitchen design with a sitting room adorned with a stunning field stone wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen features a modern retro stove and refrigerator with custom cabinetry. Off the kitchen is a stone patio. The first floor also has a bedroom with a queen-size bed and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second floor contains the charming master suite with a king-size bed, walk-in closet, and an expansive en suite bathroom with a claw-foot tub and walk-in shower. The laundry facilities are in the basement.

About the owner: Originally from Michigan, Nantucket captured my heart in 1989, and I have been a year-round resident since 1996. I met my wife when she first came to the Island in 1993, our three children were born here, and anyone who has visited knows that there is something about Nantucket that gets under your skin. I became the Town Crier in 2011, which has given me the opportunity to experience the Island in a new and exciting way.
Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town: There may be no more beautiful property on Nantucket than Meadow View Pond; it would be a shame not to share this beauty with others who can appreciate it.
