Madaquecham house description

Many Castles is a completely furnished and equipped, 'upside-down' house located on the south side of Nantucket Island. Access to Many Castles is provided by a privately maintained road which winds through more than a mile of conservation land in beautiful Madaquecham Valley. This exclusive area of the Island is protected by Nantucket law and consists of only a dozen or so homes nestled among several thousand acres of moors, meadows, and beaches. Yet you are only several minutes by car from the shopping and excitement of Nantucket Town.

Built in 1983 in a style reminiscent of the Federal Period with its hipped roof and ornamental widow's walk, Many Castles is situated to take maximum advantage of 180 degree ocean views from the expansive second level walk-out deck. A broad, sandy, ocean beach, well known by island natives for its privacy, beauty, and excellent fishing is just a ten minute walk down an idyllic path through unspoiled heartland and meadows. Or enjoy volleyball at our backyard court.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1987

                      About the owner: When I am not busy managing Many Castles, I am swimming or practicing Yoga. My favorite activities include riding my bike to the beach, or junking for 'Treasure' in Thrift stores and Antique shops.

                      Why the Owner Chose Madaquecham:
                      Madaquecham Valley is incomparable to any other place on earth. For anyone desiring a pristine, tranquil location a short walk to the beach, this is the place! We immediately fell in love with the valley and so purchased Many Castles because of this unique location. In spite of that 'get away' feeling, we are just a short drive to Sconset and Nantucket Towns.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The walk to the beach, the ocean breeze, beautiful blue water and sandy beach views, red tail hawks outside our windows. Did I forget to mention the Atlantic Ocean?
