About the property

Secluded Estate On 3 Acres With House, Cottage And Pond

This breathtaking, hidden gem with magnificent landscaping will add a touch of serenity to your Nantucket get-away. Nestled only 1.5 miles from the ferry docks and half-a-mile from Nantucket Town's Historic District, it is a perfect location for easy access to the Island's restaurants, shops, and beaches, yet also provides complete privacy.

This captivating compound is accessible through a privacy gate which opens to a stunning view of the entire expanse of the property. To the left lies the one-acre, ten feet deep pond with an on-shore dory for easy enjoyment. A stone path leads first to the cottage on the right and then to the main house situated towards the rear of the property. Many mature trees grace the lawn with alluring sitting areas placed throughout.

A shaded brick patio adorns the kitchen entrance of the main house. The functional kitchen features granite countertops and custom cabinets; it is ready for use if you are not dining at one of Nantucket's many fine restaurants. The kitchen opens onto the dining and sitting area, complete with an extraordinary view of the pond. Off the kitchen is a bathroom with a walk-in tile shower, a bedroom with a king-size bed, and a den with comfortable seating. French doors in the den lead to a stone patio enhanced with a pergola, gas grill, and seating. The upstairs features two large bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king, plus a full sleeper sofa, and armoires. The bathroom has a tile tub surround. The finished basement includes the washer and dryer, a queen sleeper sofa, 40' flat screen, and is well stocked with board games and puzzles. There is an outdoor shower attached to the main house.

The main room in the quintessential country cottage has an open kitchen design with a sitting room adorned with a stunning field stone wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen features a modern retro stove and refrigerator with custom cabinetry. Off the kitchen is a stone patio. The first floor also has a bedroom with a queen-size bed and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second floor contains the charming master suite with a king-size bed, walk-in closet, and an expansive en suite bathroom with a claw-foot tub and walk-in shower. The laundry facilities are in the basement.

The cottage is finely appointed with textured plaster walls, exposed hand-hewn beams, handmade curtains, high-end plumbing fixtures, and reclaimed chestnut flooring.

Both houses feature original paintings, many by local artists.

A small outbuilding with French door access houses an onsite office, complete with hardline Internet connectivity.

About Eric

Originally from Michigan, Nantucket captured my heart in 1989, and I have been a year-round resident since 1996. I met my wife when she first came to the Island in 1993, our three children were born here, and anyone who has visited knows that there is something about Nantucket that gets under your skin. I became the Town Crier in 2011, which has given me the opportunity to experience the Island in a new and exciting way.

Eric purchased this house in 2014

Why Eric chose West of Town

There may be no more beautiful property on Nantucket than Meadow View Pond; it would be a shame not to share this beauty with others who can appreciate it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Eric & Pam, We had such a great time as guests in your home while in town to celebrate Holidays for Heroes! The key lime pie was fantastic, but we can't wait to come back and try the chocolate cake!! Thank you for being such great hosts!!"

Absolutely wonderful! Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult finding accommodations that work for a big family (ages ranging from 1 1/2 to 84 years) but this property delivered! It's close to town but so beautifully landscaped that when you are there, you feel a million miles away. We enjoyed sight seeing during the day and spending evenings together in the home chatting in the Adirondack chairs by the pond, working on puzzles, and exploring the grounds. There are plenty of bedrooms so everyone can stretch out and have time to themselves but there is also ample family room space for evening entertainment and dining (the bathroom in the guest cottage is gigantic!) We had a fantastic time and would book this house again without hesitation. The pictures we took on the property are so beautiful that they alone are worth the price of booking. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. We will treasure the fond memories we have of our trip.

The property was exactly what my family needed for my sisters wedding. A beautiful place to rest and recuperate.

A Magical Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 returned to Nantucket to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We could not have picked a better spot. The word we kept hearing from all of our family was "magical", and we never heard so many thank yous for taking them there. The setting, the accommodations, the location - it was perfect! The grandkids loved running around the property, rowing in the dory, watching the bunnies and the ducks, sitting in the trees. They even played bocce balls. The two "cottages" were beautifully appointed - lovely linens, upscale kitchens, extremely well equipped, wonderful views from all the windows and extremely clean. Being a gardener myself, I took great pleasure at enjoying the well kept grounds and beautiful flowers. Sipping wine, outside, looking out at the pond was breathtaking.

There were 4 families and we each had our own bathroom - which was a must for us. Our family is obsessed with fitness, so we rented and rode bikes everywhere. My daughter even held fitness "class" outdoors every morning The beaches or town - none are more than a few miles away. It was fun to be without a car for a week, although we called Uber and taxis on a few occasions. Eric and Pam were so gracious and assisted us with whatever we needed, which wasn't much.

I am so happy we chose MeadowView Pond for our celebration. I would recommend it to anyone having a family reunion or wanting to get away from it all, yet still enjoy the easy accessability to town and the beautiful beaches.

A sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

This was a gorgeous setting for a wedding and an opportunity to renew family relationships. The peaceful tranquility of the Meadow View Pond and the pristine accommodations in the two cottages on the property provide a perfect family retreat! Eric and Pam go out of their way to ensure each guest is comfortable in this private setting. The comfortable accommodations are the best we have experienced through our HomeAway and VRBO rentals. Thank you Eric and Pam for the opportunity!!

Wedding Guest

  • 5 of 5

Members of the wedding party and family enjoyed a perfect spring afternoon putting finishing touches on tables in the wedding tent, chatting on lounge chairs warmed by dappled sun, dressing for the event in two perfectly appointed cottages, greeting guests and awaiting the brides walk down a flowering tree lined path toward her groom waiting by the pond. We dined, celebrated and danced on three acres of beauty and a pond. What a thrill to attend such a wedding.

Once before my husband and I enjoyed a romantic get away on this estate in the small cottage with a giant fireplace and king size bedroom suite. Meadow View Pond estate is a perfect Nantucket get away or destination wedding.

Beautiful property in pristine condition great for large groups and entertaining

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a gorgeous property with two impeccably decorated homes in a picturesque setting. The property itself is beautifully landscaped and incredibly well maintained. A few of us actually walked the whole of the property and it struck us that everything was just as it should be... all of the flowers in bloom, not a cobweb in sight, not one dead plant. The homes were also beautiful, both beautifully decorated with some antique pieces and all of the modern conveniences. Even the bed in the cottage (where I slept) was more comfortable than my own! To be honest, I'm not sure the photos do this property justice.

The property is about 1.5 miles from town, and a very short distance from Cisco Brewery, a favorite. We biked most places during the day and took cabs in the evening since it is hard to see on many of the dirt roads on the island.

The owners were incredibly helpful throughout the process, from answering questions prior to our rental, to taking delivery of a couple of items that were sent ahead of our group's arrival, to responding to questions that we had via text even late at night. They even greeted us when we arrived with an incredible homemade chocolate cake!

Would I recommend this property to a friend or relative? YES! I am actually considering returning to the island with my family (the first trip was a group of friends)... if we do go, this is where we will stay.
