About Jennifer or Steve
Steve and Jennifer are married with 3 grown children. Steve worked as an endodontist for 37 years in Baltimore, and Jennifer taught first grade for 25 years in Baltimore County Public Schools. We now live on Nantucket and in Bozeman, Montana. We spend our winter days skiing and our summer days hiking mountains. We are equally active fishing, biking, and boating on Nantucket. We are deeply bonded to our friends, family, and love of nature. Watching seals frolic in the ocean, identifying a beautiful bird or favorite plant, and seeing a herd of elk cross our land brings us tremendous joy.
Jennifer or Steve purchased this House in 2010
Why Jennifer or Steve chose Polpis
The Polpis Farmhouse was purchased by Jennifer's family in 1968. They maintained the house for over 40 years. During that time, the house saw multiple weddings, births of grandchildren, large family gatherings, and summer fun with neighbors and friends.It was the place where everyone learned to swim, water ski, sail, and to play flashlight tag at night. Our first jobs were here on Nantucket, and our best memories were here in this house. In 2010 Jennifer and Steve purchased the Polpis Farmhouse from her family.
What makes this House unique
The house has a unique history. It was built in 1804 as a tavern for Nantucket whaling men. Later it became a hay and dairy farm, and the dining room section was added. When Jennifer and Steve purchased the house, it was in need of TLC. We completely gutted the house down to the studs and increased the size of the house in 2011. We worked very hard to preserve the historical charm of the house as we brought the Polpis Farmhouse up to estate level. The house has a modern feel and is decorated with a combination of early American antiques blended with modern comfortable furniture. It is stocked with beautiful china as well as everyday summer china. It has everything you could possibly want because it is our treasured home, and we like to live in a comfortable manner. We know that you will enjoy this essentially brand new home. You will probably not want to leave. So, come back.
