Island Life

There may be no location with crazier real estate prices than Nantucket- but holy hell, if I won the lottery you better believe I’d buy a house there. Like this one. Which is near perfect.  It needs some serious decor help, but for an in town charmer (that has SEVEN bedrooms for lots of summer parties) it’s so killer. If you have $6 mill to spare.

I would have done two sided stairs like I’ve seen on other houses this style, but I wouldn;t exactly kick it out of bed for eating crackers either as is.

Town and ocean views from the widows walk.

A good rustic beam leaves me weak in the knees.

Most fab playroom ever? Maybe.

And a one bedroom one bath GUEST HOUSE in case you are super popular (which you would be if you lived here) and needed another place for people to sleep.  I don;t think I could even afford just this.

  1. WOW! Seriously, the rustic details with the floors and the beams as if that’s not enough.. .and then that totally awesome kitchen and bathroom. It is perfect! I hope you do sell tons of books and then let us all come visit. :)

  2. This house in insane. Not Nantucket, but in the ’50s, my dad was offered an acre plot on Martha’s Vineyard for… wait for it… $400. And he turned it down because he didn’t have the money at the time. When he told me that story my initial reaction was, “Are you kidding me? We could have a house on the Vineyard right now?” Totally random and totally crazy. But definitely less than $6 million.

  3. Hahaha yep, I would need to save a lifetime to be able to afford even that guest house w/ the charming flowers :) But at least there’s a dream to work towards! Love the exterior of the house in the first pic!
