Facing the morning sun; on an acre of manicured, hedge-surrounded grounds within sight of the Sconset beach, this 5,000 square foot, four bedroom, 3.5 bath, shingle style home is the very picture of peace and quiet you want from a home on Nantucket. Although built in 1998, the earth-tone trim firmly anchors the building in its’ Island architectural past. Available for rent while the owner, an ocean explorer, is off looking for shipwrecks in the Mediterranean, the house offers a perfect Island escape.

Massive hydrangea plantings; climbing roses and a surround porch are quintessential Sconset touches. A generous, landscaped, sun bathed patio is a great location for sun bathing; family summer dinners and a gathering of friends as the day winds to an end. An expanse of lawn in front and back are great segways for croquet or other family lawn games.

The post and beam construction gives one a connection to the building techniques of the past and a feeling of warmth and security when the occasional Nantucket summer breezes pick-up and sprinkles bring you inside. The large center hallway is flooded with light filtered through the ship-deck floor lining of the cupola two levels above. An open floor plan gives your eye access to much of the first floor as you enter on raised slate covered entry thresholds. Yellow pine floors and oriental carpets bid you welcome into the interior.
