7 Independent Way, Nantucket, MA
7 Independent Way is on a quiet street joining Orange and Union streets, steps from the Great Harbor Yacht Club and a short walk to the center of town. Originally built in 1848, the property has been completely renovated by Kristin Paton of Kristin Paton Interiors and Architecture by Christopher Dallmus of Design Associates (Nantucket Whaling Museum renovation). 7 Independent Way is an immaculately detailed beautiful 4 bedroom home with great outdoor entertaining space and off street parking. Off street parking enters onto a beautifully laid out bluestone patio with a wall of rich ivy and flanked by tall hornbeams trees that frame the backyard in lush green foliage. The patio is designed for entertaining with comfortable sofas and side chairs, dining area for 10 and an outdoor shower. The house is designed with French doors that open up from the beautiful kitchen directly into the outdoor entertaining area to create an indoor/outdoor great room feel.The home is meticulously laid out with high end finishes and architectural details and is extremely well organized to accommodate all the needs of a family on Nantucket. This home is ready for a stylish family to move into immediately! Fantastic rental history and a plan to create another full bathroom(see documents).
