Property description

Our cozy cottage is located in the quaint beach village of Codfish Park in beautiful Siasconset on Nantucket. It is newly constructed, with two bedrooms and two baths. It is an upside down style cape with 180 degree water views from the newly expanded second floor deck. Located about 50 yards from the secluded and quiet 'Sconset beach on the eastern end of Nantucket Island.

For 2014, we are making significant improvements to enhance the vacation experience. On the outside, we are extending the top floor deck to about double its current size. This will significantly improve the outdoor experience and make entertaining on the deck much easier.

Inside we are undertaking a renovation of the upstairs living area, adding new larger windows to increase the natural light as well the ocean views; we are adding built in furniture, desk space and shelving around the perimeter; a trundle bed will be added under the built in couch. We think all of these will improve the flow and livability of the upstairs space.

We are excited and hope you will be as well.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am a 65 year old CPA from Philadelphia. I met my lovely life partner ten years ago and she promptly introduced me to 'Sconset and have been in love with the place ever since. I get up to the island as often as I can but continue to maintain an active career in my firm working as part of the management team. I have two grown children and two wonderful grand kids. Kathy has two grown children of her own. She is an assistant dean in the graduate school of nursing at Drexel University

Why the Owner Chose Siasconset, Nantucket, MA, USA:
Kathy and I had gotten into the habit of summer two week rentals in 'Sconset and in 2009 found ourselves in Codfish Park, where Kathy once owned a tiny cottage called Gone Native. Our cottage was right next door. I was immediately intrigued as it was new construction, which is very rare in Codfish Park, which got it start as a fishing village, centuries ago. After many days, I finally took a look and it was perfect. Just the right size with high ceilings and new plumbing, two rare traits in the old cottages. I deliberated for a couple of months and finally decided to take the plunge. I was turning 60 and figured if I did not do it now I would never have my beach house. After a month of dickering, I had it! As a tribute to Kathy and her old place, which she dearly missed, we named the place The Return of the Native.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The proximity to the beach and to 'Sconset is unmatched. The beach is 50 yards away and the village is a short walk up the hill, where one can find a market, liquor store, cafes, and two fine dining restaurants which are wonderful. 'Sconset itself is one of the most unique places in the country. Small, quite, beautifully maintained with abundant gardens and rooftop trellises awash in roses. It is quite remarkable. Nantucket town with its shopping, restaurants and cultural scene is a mere 7 miles west on Milestone Road.
