Nantucket Town house description

Aft Cottage is a newer cheerful two bedroom, two bath cottage located on a residential street. It's spacious and sunny, and appointed throughout with Nantucket art and antiques. Pine floors add to its cozy and comfortable feeling...Enter the cottage into the main room, which is the living, dining/kitchen area. The kitchen area is modern and convenient, whether you wish to prepare a gourmet meal or just boil a lobster.... Off to the left is a den with a gas fireplace and tv, and a futon for a nap, or an overnight guest. It is a perfect go-to-place to relax, read, or sip a glass of wine. On the same first floor, the comfortable, sunlit bedroom is the Queen Anne room. It can be arranged for you as either one king size bed or two twins. There is a modern bathroom with large shower which serves as both a guest bathroom and private bath connected to the first floor bedroom. On the second floor offering even more privacy is the master bedroom suite with a queen sized bed. A full modern bath with Jacuzzi is yours to enjoy after a day at the beach, or long bike ride to Sconset. As our guest we hope you will enjoy the cheerful, well kept accommodations throughout the cottage. All rooms are spacious and bright. Of course, we offer central air. However, if you prefer to take advantage of Nantucket's wonderful ocean air you are welcome to turn off the central air and turn on the ceiling fans and open the windows. Aft Cottage is very comfortable for 4 people, or it's perfect for two couples as well. Wi-Fi is included for your convenience. The gardens surrounding the cottage feature mature hydrangeas and various flower beds. Of course, a private driveway is available if you decide to bring your car, or rent one. Aft Cottage is steps from the Surfside bike path. Surfside beach, the closest beach, is just two miles from the cottage. Another bike path can start you on your way to Madaket, or cycle the other way towards Sconset. Should you wish to grill, a BBQ and table and chairs are there for you. If you like to walk, Main Street is approximately 20+ minutes away, which makes it convenient for coffee, shopping, or dining. In the evening, instead of driving around for a parking spot in town, it's lovely to walk to a restaurant for a fabulous dinner and then saunter home under the stars.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I'm a retired advertising executive who fell in love with Nantucket many years ago. After a few years of life in California I moved back east and continued my visits to Nantucket.

Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
One weekend I flew over for another visit, met a real estate agent, saw some homes, fell in love with a small fishing cottage in town, and purchased it. Several years later I had the larger cottage built. Hence 'Fore' and 'Aft' Cottages!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Aft Cottage is spacious, bright and comfortable. It's located within the Historic District and many points of interest are within walking distance. A car isn't necessary, it's a choice.....Mill Hill Park is right across Prospect Street.
