Newly renovated in 2016, this is a cute Nantucket style coastal charmer. The interior features modern amenities, beautiful hardwood floors and period details. The outdoor living space is exceptional. Privacy, mature plantings in a multi-level landscape plan for outdoor entertaining. Convenient town location with easy access to Mill Hill Park. Very close to the bike paths, great for heading off into any direction on the island.

Stayed here for a short break before the start of my daughter's senior year in high school. House is charming and tastefully decorated with lot's of nice "beachy" touches. The kitchen is modern and well designed, the landscaping is beautiful, the backyard patio is secluded and the outdoor shower is wonderful. It's a short walk to town which is a plus. There are beach chairs, board games, movies, etc. which are also thoughtful additions. There were three of us, but it easily sleeps six. We would be happy to rent here again.

She returned to her architectural roots and founded Melanie Gowen Design, and branding and design firm. When the opportunity came to work on a full-scope investment property renovation in Nantucket, Melanie followed her lifelong dream to live on an island, amongst the most beautfiul properties in the world.
