16 Cannonbury Lane, Nantucket, MA
16 Cannonbury Lane offers a classic Nantucket summer home that has undergone a fabulous renovation. The main house and guest studio maintain their island charm yet provide the fit and finish that today's buyer wants. Situated on approximately half an acre, this fabulous retreat is just a short distance to a deeded beach, and moments away from afternoon strolls through the village of Sconset. Cannonbury Lane's thoughtful site design and amenities are complemented with community-wide dune-scaping and boardwalks framed with sea oats and sand. Situated toward the backside of the enclave you'll find the Field House, a fabulous gathering space for residents to enjoy, socialize and relax. A separate gym and spacious deck are bordered by cutting gardens and vegetable beds where one can wander before dinner to pick herbs, flowers, or what's ripe for picking. Cannonbury Lane reminds you that your summertime on Nantucket is meant to be enjoyed at a slower, more relaxed pace. There are HDC-approved plans for a pool should a buyer choose to add one in the future.
