This wonderful, classic new home in historic Monomoy recently hosted a Nantucket Wine Festival event with Principessa Emanuela Notarbartolo di Sciara, as part of the Great Wines in Grand Houses series. Long living room with high coffered ceiling and beadboard wainscoting, French doors to expansive rear deck. Sun room flows from living room to kitchen/family area, with honed black granite countertops and butler’s pantry. Rustic oak floors throughout. Master bedroom with views to Town. Three guest bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and baths en suite. Spacious second floor front balcony with views to Brant Point. Basement with 10 foot ceilings, laundry. Elegant layout and multiple common rooms, the house sits on a lavishly landscaped lot with views to the Creeks, Town and Harbor. Five minute walk to harbor beach. Large private back yard, beautiful stone work, covered front porch, mature trees and expansive rear deck all make this a gracious and inviting summer home away from home.
Just north of the Milestone Road and on the south side of Nantucket Harbor lie the 45 lovely acres of Nantucket’s Monomoy neighborhood, founded more than 150 years ago. Since that time, the neighborhood has attracted eminent attorneys, clergy, artists, musicians, architects, corporate executives, and diplomats. While Nantucket Island has always enjoyed a charming blend of resident fishermen and CEO’s of multi-national corporations, Monomoy stands out with its higher concentration of the latter— making it one of the most exclusive neighborhoods on the Island. Indeed, Monomoy has evolved from 19th century grazing pastures, to what is now one of the most desirable summer addresses in the world.
