Nantucket Beach Home Tour

Nantucket Cottage Creates Serenity for a Family

The more Nantucket home tours that we view, the more we want to visit this region filled with serenity.  Boston Magazine recently featured a beach home which is an escape and retreat for the owner’s throughout the year.   Although relatively new, the home boasts exposed studs and rough-hewn oak rafters which provide an old beach cottage feel.

The owner wanted a contemporary, upscale yet beachy and comfortable interior.  With a family of four, the finishes and fabrics had to hold up!  Just walk through the living room doors (shown above) and beyond the lawn is the ocean.


A custom boat-shaped bar provides casual elegance.

Mosiac tile with white cabinetry have created a kitchen that just begs to be used!

One of our favorite touches is the handpainted bar top by Nantucket artist Mary Emery.

“We enjoy the buzz of people in-season, but also like the peace of the off-season,” the wife says.

“We just like everything about the island.”   – Boston Magazine

The closet door is made from driftwood.

Monogrammed Arm Chairs are a lovely touch…
