Beautifully Reimagined, “Blue Shutters” has been brought back to its grandeur by Nantucket\’s premier builder, Cheney Custom Homes, and exquisitely designed and furnished by Sophie Metz Design, a preeminent Nantucket architect and designer. The main house features five bedrooms and five full and one-half bathrooms while the guest house has two bedrooms and two full and one-half bathrooms. The property is conveniently located in Brant Point just a tenth of a mile from the beach and the iconic Brant Point Lighthouse and a third of a mile from Nantucket\’s historic downtown. No stone was left unturned with every detail of this home having been carefully considered.

The landing at the top of the stairs leads to two bedrooms. The eastern bedroom has built-in bunks and views of Easton Street Park. This bedroom uses the hallway bathroom with a tub/shower. The northern bedroom suite has a full bathroom with a shower and the bedroom successfully captures the tranquil views. Down the hall is a wet bar that services the comfortable seating area.
