This classic Nantucket house, located just up the street from the Jared Coffin House in Nantucket town, was built in 1807 by Captain Robert Gardner, Jr. who captained the Chilli, a whaler made famous during the War of 1812.
This elegant home features a large eat-in kitchen, lovely dining room, comfortable den, living room and powder room on the first floor with four bedrooms and 2 baths and a central family room on the second floor. Behind the house is a very large sunny English garden, perfect for a game of whiffle ball or quiet reading.
Within biking distance of Jetties and Surfside beaches and located on a quiet tree-lined street, this is the perfect “avoid having to drive into town” option for families on the go who want town access but also a quiet environment for their Nantucket vacation.
The house is fully up to date with appliances (electric stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, washer, dryer) and has private outdoor shower.
The second floor includes a large master bedroom with a canopy queen bed, a second bedroom with a double four-poster, a single bedroom with an antique iron bed and a fourth bedroom with two twin beds. In addition, there is a central sitting room with flatscreen TV, chess board, board games. The second floor also includes two full baths (one with shower, the other with a shower/ tub combination).
We are a no-smoking and unfortunately, a no pets house.
A lease is required along with a security deposit for all rentals. 10% discounts offered for stays of 2+ weeks and past tenants.
