This breathtaking, hidden gem with magnificent landscaping will add a touch of serenity to your Nantucket dream home. Nestled only 1.5 miles from the ferry docks and half-a-mile from Nantucket Town's Historic District, in the Hussey Farm neighborhood, 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 quarter-acre, eight 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 three 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 stone tile shower, a bedroom with a king-size bed, and a den with comfortable seating.

The upstairs features two large bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with two twins, plus a full sleeper sofa, and armoire. The bathroom has a tile tub surround. The finished basement includes the washer and dryer, a queen sleeper sofa. There is an outdoor shower attached to the main house.
