Nantucket Houses No 7


Built in 1747, this gorgeous Nantucket home is not only for sale but also a vacation rental.  I love the crisp white exterior, immaculate details and quaint window boxes full of flowers.  You are greeted with a smile before you even step foot inside.  Love when a home of such age is restored with care and much attention to detail.  Not sacrificing the character and history of the home, the restoration still maintains the unique qualities of its original design.

You can see the rental listing HERE or the buying listing HERE
Isn't it great how Nantucket is simple in design but so tasteful and respectful of its history and location.  I just can't get enough of these gorgeous homes!

Nantucket Houses No 6


14 Darling Street is within walking distance to Main Street in Nantucket.  This home may not be as large as the past Nantucket houses I've shown you but by no means is it lacking anything on style.  Quaint and charming, this house is full of character.  I particularly love the eating/sitting area off the kitchen.  The bathrooms and master bedroom are also adorable.  Great design here!  Someone knew exactly what they were doing and the result is "darling".  Every room is very restrained in accessories and yet it comes across just perfect and completely free of clutter. 

Check out the listing here.

Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day and summer with me admiring the lovely homes of Nantucket.

Nantucket Homes No 5


I LOVE THIS ONE!  
Union Jack is another Nantucket rental I want to share with you.  Built in 1806 by house carpenter Lot Hinckley, this 19th century home is full of history and Nantucket charm.  History of owners include merchants, mariners and ship carpenters.  In 2012 Darcy Creech purchased this home and named it Union Jack for several reasons…it's located on Union St, her father and business partner's name is Jack and the U.S. Union Jack (the flag flown on the U.S. Coast Guard vessels).

The owner says…
"May God bless this house and every person who walks through its doors."

Sleeping 6-8, this home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and 6 working fireplaces.  So many amenities and amazing things about this house that if you're seriously interested in checking it out then go to the website HERE.

This home is pristine and so well furnished.  I love the historic pine floors, federal references and color scheme.  I so wish I could visit Nantucket and stay here.  There is nothing about this house I don't like and I usually don't say that about homes.  Being the imperfect perfectionist I can always find something of error but not this one!









 








Disclaimer:  I love Interior Design and Architecture and have not received any compensation in return for my post.  It's my desire to share good design with you and I look for it in the most interesting ways in order to bring you something new to the eyes.
