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 Many Castles is situated to take maximum advantage of 180 degree Atlantic 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. This is a pristine tranquil location a short walk to our own beautiful Atlantic Ocean Beach. Many Castles is very much a get away setting but at the same time we are close to all the excitement of Nantucket Town and Sconset. Back in 1987, we discovered Madaquecham and immediately fell in love with the valley. We purchased Many Castles because of this uniquely special location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Unique Benefits are: Walk to the beach. Atlantic Ocean breezes. Beautiful blue water and sky. Incomparable Sunselts. Red tail hawks flying outside our windows. Private, get away setting.
