Nantucket Town cottage description

27 Milk street is located on one of the most desirable streets in the old historic district of Nantucket. Cobblestoned Main Street is approximately 1/4 mile away. It's an easy walk to beaches,shops, restaurants, museums, the library and much more. No need to bring your car as you can get to anything on Nantucket from this wonderful downtown location.
The first floor of the house has a front parlor, a dining room, kitchen, bath and large living room overlooking a secluded and fenced rear yard. The second floor has two bedrooms and a bath.
We bought this house in 2013 because we love the proximity to downtown but also because the house was so charming. We love the separate dining room, the gallery which leads into the kitchen, the bay window with window seat in the living room overlooking the terraced back yard. We've been doing lots of updates since we bought the house. So far for the summer of 2015 we have a new washer and dryer and we have planted an herb garden.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We've owned a cottage in Siasconset (at the East end of Nantucket) since 1996 (Home away listing #105443). We love Siasconset but we spend a lot of time on Nantucket in the off season so we thought it would be fun to live in the thick of things in downtown Nantucket. We love being so close to everything...movies, beaches, shops, restaurants, the library and groceries.

              Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
              We bought 'Downton' in the Fall of 2013. We love that we can walk to everything downtown in Nantucket and never have to use our car. We also enjoy walking in the opposite direction from town where there are miles of trails and places to explore.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We immediately fell in love with the coziness of has the feel of a big house with beamed ceilings as well as a parlor and dining room but on a smaller scale. We love the private and spacious back yard. The house is very close to everything in the heart of Nantucket and easy access to bike paths to take you to the beaches at the other ends of the island.
