Property description

At the end of its own private shell lane, our house is a short walk from the beach, golf and Sconset village. It sleeps 6-8 in three bedrooms and a Sun Room, all with their own bathroom with tub or shower. The House has wide-plank antique pine floors, a large open-plan dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen with black honed-granite counters. The living room is spacious and sunny with a working fireplace. The Sun Room has a 32 inch flat screen HDTV, working fireplace and daybed with trundle. The windows have beautiful, unobstructed sunset views over the moors and distant ocean. The house, porch, brick patio and large lawns offer ample space for entertaining or for kids to play. Amenities include: central AC, broadband, wireless network, cable TV, 280 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, gas grill, outdoor furniture (including umbrella), beach towels, surf-casting rod, covered porch and brick patio. Available weekly from May through December. Perfect for fall weddings.


Garden Visitors: We have regular visitors to our garden.

There are many rabbits, who enjoy snacking on the lawn. A very large large ring tailed hawk that likes to sit in a nearby tree, and a family of deer come by for morning coffee and a few mouthfuls of hydrangeas. Last spring, the two fawns were still waist high and had their spots. They munched happily on the flowers while we watched from the sun room.

May and June in Nantucket: The weather warms up in May and especially in June. Until late May, you are welcome to play golf at Sankaty, a truly beautiful private course running through the moors, up to the ocean's edge, and past Sankaty lighthouse. Miacomet Golf Club is also open to all comers (and stays that way through the season).

Fishing in May and June can be spectacular. Stripers of all sizes come right into the harbor, where they can be caught from kayaks, the shore on Coatue, or the Jetties. They also roam the surf-side of the island and Great Point (four wheel drive required). Blues arrive in late May or early June and can be caught from the beach or boats around the entire island. The tackle shops are glad to give advice on where to fish and supply guides as well. I am also glad to consult on the local fishing (much more useful than my golf tips).

Town and Sconset are still tranquil and the shops are welcoming as they warm up for the season. Restaurants are almost all open and uncrowded.

September and October in Nantucket: September and October are the most beautiful months in Nantucket. The weather is usually crystal clear and warm. The beaches are empty, but the restaurants are open and the surf is warm.

It is perfect weather for golf, fishing, running, walking the moors, or sitting on the beach with a book. In September, the 9-hole public course across the street is still open and greens fees are under $50. On October 12th, the beautiful private 18 golf course at Sankaty opens to the public,

Through mid-October Nantucket hosts some of the best sport fishing in the world. Stripers, Blues, False Albacore, and Spanish Mackerel are all available from the beach--especially if you have four wheel drive. Offshore, yellow and blue-fin tuna roam the waters and are chased by local charter boats.

Best of all, our rent is a fraction of peak season rates!

Location

Car: Necessary

Nantucket boasts a whaling museum, marina, antique stores, art galleries, designer clothing and gourmet restaurants. The island has miles of publicly accessible sand beaches and warm surf. It also has a large harbor for sailing. There are two public golf courses, tennis clubs, and a stable. The fishing is wonderful (call for details).

We are in Sconset, a true getaway that has changed little since whaling captains vacationed here in the 1800s. It is still a village of rose-covered shingle cottages on a bluff by the sea. It is small, safe and a wonderful place to walk and bike, especially for kids. There is a surf beach (which the harbor seals visit), a sandwich shop, and several excellent restaurants with bars where friends gather on the weekend. The village has three golf courses, including a public, nine-hole course that welcomes kids and is just across the road from our house.

Please join us for a morning walk to the village for a cup of coffee and a muffin.

Other Activities: Building sand castles, bird watching, scalloping

Golf: There is nine-hole public course about a mile from the house--very inexpensive, no tee times required, beginners welcome, and the wait isn't too bad. There is a very good 18 hole public course in Miacomet, about a fifteen minute drive away.

Sankaty, a private club, is open to the public in April and May and again in October. It is well worth the trip.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are long-time summer visitors to Nantucket and look forward staying in our house for the season....one of these days.

Why the Owner Chose Siasconset, Nantucket, MA, USA:
It is in Sconset, which is Nantucket as it was 50 years ago. Safe, beautiful, not too crowded, but full of kids and life in the summer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are surrounded by moors, birds, and quiet, but only short stroll to Claudette's for a breakfast sandwich and a cup of coffee, the Sconset Market for ice cream, and of course, the Sconset beach. In the evening you can walk to three restaurants, including the Chanticleer.
