Inspired Living. Welcome to a one-of-a-kind vacationing experience.

There’s no place in the world like Nantucket, where conserved beauty in nature, history, fine wines and dining, unparalleled shopping, and activities for every level of adventurer nestle together in a dynamic community thirty miles out to sea. Where sustainability and stewardship frame the local mindset. Where generations will enjoy incomparable oceanfront vistas through the changing seasons. Where elements of sky, water, sand, and land create an extraordinary, memorable, and unique opportunity.

You can have it all at Centerloft. A prime location that is your private getaway - cloistered and placid, perched upon the verve of downtown and steps from sparkle of Main Street. When you live at 40 Center, you're 40 steps to anywhere you could want to go in town. For farther flung adventures, Centerloft's prime parking spot means the ease of keeping an auto at your beck and call.

It’s your choice: sleep in, catch up on reading, relax in Centerloft's luxuriously dreamy beds, brew french pressed coffee and let the drifting aroma awaken your senses to the possibilities of the new day. You run across the street still in your slippers for freshly baked croissants from Petticoat Row Bakery.

Dip into the island guidebooks and Nantucket literature tucked on the bookshelf, and when you're brimming with ideas for the day's activities, grab the stack of plush beach towels, thermos, and picnic basket and you're off for the day. Stock up with Provisions by the wharf, then all that's left is to choose whether to adventure on land or at sea.

After a sunkissed day of fun, you're ready to retreat back to Centerloft where you enjoy hot shower and cool downtime, before getting gussied up for dinner. You feel like wearing something new tonight? Shops are still you dash out to Erica Wilson where you pick a new dress. Pause at Epernay for a wine tasting, pickup a bottle of wine and a grab a bouquet from Flowers on your walk back to Centerloft, where that cute little patio beckons you to gather with friends for a glass of wine.

Needn't bother ordering an Uber, as your dinner reservation at the new Club Car is just a few blocks away. You grab your pashmina, clutch, and walk elbow to elbow with your beau to dinner, watching the dogs of nantucket and their owners strolling on their evening walks.

Ice cream from the Juicebar offers a sweet ending to your evening, since it's already on your way back to Centerloft. You pinch yourself as you gaze up at the stars, realizing you're just nightslumber away from experiencing all of this over again, yet in a new way each day.

While at Cornell she studied International Marketing and Wines in Florence, Italy and was on the Sailing Team. After college, Melanie worked in financial consulting and gained experience in mortgage banking and regulatory strategy. Managing assets for clients, who often were entrepreneurs owning mulitple real estate assets, she became fascinated with the design and marketing as tools impacting the success of real estate and business. She returned to her architectural roots and founded Melanie Gowen Design, an interior design firm. When the opportunity came to work on a full-scope investment property renovation in Nantucket, Melanie followed her lifelong dream to live on an island, amongst the most beautfiul properties in the world. She especially loves the melding of historic preservation and innovative design that presents unique challenges for renovation and building.

Melanie's passion for enhancing properties by incorporating marketing, design, and branding strategy into the process results in an unparalleled, personalized experience. She consults on real estate development, helping clients strategize on unique investment and design opportunities, and she can pull together the perfect team for any project.

Guestbook comments from the manager

40 Centre is a stunning property; it is elegant and comfortable, spacious yet cozy, and is in a prime location but manages to be private and quiet . Working with the Windwalker Raveis Real Estate group made the experience that much better because they were extremely accommodating and accessible throughout our time in the apartment. We appreciated the partnership, and hope to return next year.

When you stay Centerloft, you can pop downstairs across to the street level for a morning paper, fresh baked goods, coffee, juice, and grab and go foods as well! The building is surrounded by hotels and restaurants. (Please note that it is an "urban" environment, but the loft is tucked in the back away from the street). You'll be mere steps from the Brotherhood of Thieves, Le Languedoc, Dune, Nantucket Prime, Proprietors, Company of the Cauldron, Black Eyed Susans, Boarding House, the Pearl, the Corner Table at the Nantucket Culinary Center, and many more. The Nantucket Visitors' Center is right around the corner, as is the free shuttle to Cisco Brewers. The Nantucket Whaling Museum is just a few doors down on the way to the Steamship Authority and the fast food "Strip." World class shopping is located blocks away. So much to see and do!
