Harbor views, a sweeping lawn and a short distance from town provide all the makings of a classic Nantucket summer escape at this New England-style home on a hillside in Monomoy, not far from all the mid-island conveniences. “The views from Monomoy are unparalleled,” says Greg McKechnie, principal with Great Point Properties.
With all the classic details of a seaside vacation home, 6 Sandwich is designed “upside down” with bedrooms on the first floor and the kitchen on the second floor, along with a Viking Professional range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and peninsula for casual dining.
The kitchen also features high ceilings, lots of windows and a modern floor plan, overlooking the dining area and family room, which has a classic fireplace surround. Also on the second floor, a large master suite has lots of storage and a private deck. Classically styled built-ins can be found throughout the home.
Choose from two covered porches or the roof walk for having morning coffee while taking in views of Nantucket Harbor and the town skyline. “On Nantucket, a roof walk is commonly referred to as a widow’s walk, a term from the old whaling days,” says McKechnie. “The name is said to come from the wives of mariners who would watch for their spouses to return from their time at sea.”
While the days of whaling are behind us, the mainly residential community still has some of the “best shellfishing, scalloping and boating in the harbor,” says McKechnie.
