This is a well maintained property with an attractive deck area that overlooks a small conservation area with red wing blackbirds, baby ducks (sometimes in the Spring) and occasional wild turkeys or a deer. We even had a turtle lay its eggs on our property at one time. This home also offers tenants an appreciation for decor and cleanliness. If you are the ultra casual type then this property is probably not for you. We take pride in presenting an attractive home to our tenants and hope that you will treat our property as if it was your own home during your stay. If you are seeking privacy yet convenience then you will appreciate the location of this home that offers bike path, walk to town (one mile) Steppes Beach or Hinckley Lane Beach (about 1/2 mile), walk to Something Natural (you know where that is if you have been on the island before). The bike bath on Cliff Road is about 750 feet from our house at 26 Pilgrim Road. The Westmoor Tennis Club is also a very short walk from our house. There are a number of dirt roads nearby if you enjoy walking on back roads offering tranquil moments for yourself. You might also enjoy a wonderful and approximately one-half mile walk on the Tupancy Links that leads to the ocean. This walk is located off Cliff Road about one mile from the house. You will also love the back deck which offers glorious sunsets as well as time to sun bathe or read your current book or the newspaper. Certain times of the day offer both sun and shade from the deck area. This home is significantly updated including a kitchen with Corian counter tops. If you enjoy fishing the ponds of Nantucket there are such opportunities not too far away from this property. If you prefer more excitement then hire one of the charter fishing boats and catch some great sized blues or stripers. Those charter guys know what they are doing and the chances of your bringing home some great catches are excellent. The floor plan of this house offers a flexibility of lifestyle as two bedrooms and a full bath are on the top floor and two bedrooms and full bath (stall shower) are located on the lower level living area. We have found, over the years, that many families have appreciated this sleeping plan because it offers the opportunity for the kids to be by themselves on one level and the parents have their own sleeping arrangements on another level. The first floor combination kitchen/family room also offers opportunity for those casual family/friend moments so great when on vacation. The large pine table in the kitchen can easily seat eight people should you have a large family or guests visiting you while you are on Nantucket. The combination dining/living area on the first floor also includes a fireplace should you be renting in the early Spring or during the Fall season. There is also an enclosed hot and cold outdoor shower area for your use when you return from the beach so you don't bring sand into the house. We hope it doesn't rain during your stay but if it does you will be especially appreciative of this home's location so close to town for shopping or visiting the Whaling Museum or the Atheneum (library). Oh yes, also make sure you take in a movie or two at the newly built Dreamland theater. You will also like the close proximity to Something Natural referenced earlier for an outdoor lunch that offers fabulous and large sandwiches along with your favorite Nantucket Nectar's drink. The back deck is also a great place for cocktails and a cookout on the Weber grill that is available to you. We don't offer any items that might be appropriate for a baby or very young child so if that is a need of your family it is best to bring such items with you. Otherwise, we are a fully furnished household for your use and enjoyment....Read more
