    About this property

    Stylish & Highly Appointed 4 BR Naushop Colonial~ Pool & Tennis

    Historic Nantucket resort in Naushop with outdoor tennis court
    NIPTUCKET is a light, bright & airy, happy home with comfortable spaces in NAUSHOP, our favorite place! It is a community that reflects quintessential Nantucket! Building began in this village 18 years ago and we have rented homes there each year from that time forward, often renting at Thanksgiving and Christmas too, and then returning for Daffodil Festival in April! Every experience was a positive one. We always knew that we would purchase on Nantucket one day, and that it would be in Naushop. We love the 'village feel' taking long, late afternoon or early morning walks, waving to neighbors as we pass by, many of whom return each year. We love to see children riding bikes in the safety of our private streets and dogs enjoying a dog-friendly environment. We love hearing the laughter coming from the heated swimming pool or cheers from the tennis courts. The clubhouse, kiddie pool and playground complete the picture. The convenient location adds to the luxury of being a Naushop homeowner. We walk or bike to most places; nearby Annie's Organic market, the fishery, the health club or any one of a variety of nearby restaurants. After years of real estate shopping and when the opportunity arose, we walked into 17 Goldfinch and knew immediately that it was our home. It was a home that fit our long list of criteria. We wanted a 4 story home with full basement and full attic for possible future expansion. We realized that its 4 bedrooms was a must for our growing family. We also realized that we liked separate first floor rooms to allow everyone the privacy of different spaces when the gang is all there. The location within the village itself was also important to us, as we ideally wanted the quiet of an upper Goldfinch location, the highest point in the village which looks out over those homes nestled in the lower village, particularly because of the sunset views. Our home sits on one of the larger lots giving us a larger rear yard. This was important to us as its our 'outside room', where we spend most summer days and evenings entertaining family and friends with long dinner parties that run into late-night, and fun lawn games that pick up the next day, as the new stainless Weber grill gets fired up one more time! We purchased our home summer 2013. The house is freshly painted inside and out, with newly designed window boxes that are professionally cared for. There are newly refinished, ash hardwood floors throughout the entire house. The front and rear doors have new storm/screen doors. We installed wall-mounted flat screen TVs in all four bedrooms and a 60 inch in the Family room off the kitchen and a 65 inch in the lower level. The FIRST FLOOR has a lovely welcoming Foyer accessed via a high gloss black front door with polished chrome hardware. We love the a straight view of the large rear yard from the front door which looks out to the teak patio furniture with navy cushions and umbrella. To the left is a separate Dining room for lovely dinners of 8-10 around the round yew wood table. This room doubles as a Study for those seeking a private place to work. To the right of the Foyer is the charming Living room with wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookcase with seating for 6-8. Straight ahead is the large, open eat-in Kitchen with center island and pot rack above, large cook area and large eating area with a trestle table that seats 10-12. This room opens up to the intimate Family room with the second wood-burning fireplace, a 60 inch wall mounted flat SMART TV with the Xfinity package with (pay per view), the highlight of the house! Off the kitchen is a half bath, a hallway with a side door leading to the outside, a large supply closet and a coat closet. French doors in the kitchen open to the yard for easy access for lovely alfresco meals. Morning coffee outside is the best. The SECOND FLOOR, has a wrap-around hallway with window with incredible sunset views. The four bedrooms have lots of windows for a light, bright and cheerful feel and each with central air. Each of the bedrooms has high-end linens, either Matouck, Ralph Lauren or Sferra, and a wall-mounted flat TV screen. The Master bedroom has a KING 4-poster white linen canopied bed, new double chest of drawers, antique writing desk, lovely linens, white fluffy towels, his and her closets, 4 windows and an en suite full bath with shower. There is a SMART TV flat screen. The second bedroom has a Queen with Matouk linens, new bedside tables, antique dresser, large closet, 2 windows and wall-mounted flat screen TV. The third bedroom has a QUEEN 4 poster bed with Matouk linens, new bedside tables, new high chest of drawers, large closet and hardwood floors, three windows and wall-mounted flat screen TV. The fourth bedroom has two TWIN beds with Ralph Lauren navy and white linens, Ralph Lauren navy and white towels, new double dresser, large closet, hardwood floors, three windows and wall-mounted flat screen TV. The LOWER LEVEL is partially finished with media and laundry areas. The media room has a sectional sofa and 65 inch flat screen TV The separate laundry room offers slate grey computerized washer and dryer and folding table. The YARD is flat and perfect for game playing, children's activities, passing a football, luxuriating alfresco meals or simply for 'sundowners' after a long day at the beach. There is a large shed, an enclosed outdoor shower (glorious for showering on a sunny morning), a new Weber gas grill. We love the spacious, stone gravel driveway, large enough to park three cars and very convenient when loading up the cars with lots of people and beach stuff! The beautiful clubhouse, heated pool, two tennis courts, kiddie pool, playground and shuffleboard court complete the picture. We hope you enjoy our island home on magical Nantucket as much as we do!

        Niptucket was Perfect

        Everything was perfect. Exactly as it we wanted. Every detail was perfected. Would love to stay in nipticket again.

        5/5 Excellent


          Everything at the house is perfect ! It's decorated beautifully , immaculate , all hardwood floors , outside patio set and lounge chairs . The only thing you really need is either a bike or a car because the stop and shop is walkable but you can't carry that many items . There is a bus stop at the end of the street to take the shuttles anywhere . There are restaurants that are also walkable ! Great place to rent ! Sally

          5/5 Excellent

            Niptucket was perhaps the most lovely, well appointed, well stocked and welcoming homes on Island.

            My family and I have rented on Nantucket for over 20 years, and have stays at many beautiful homes. Our expectations are rather high, and so from the description on VRBO, we were eager to arrive for our vacation. We were thrilled upon arrival at Niptucket in Naushop on Island and discover how thoroughly well decorated, styled, stocked and welcoming Mrs. Lyons had created her home. The property is beautiful. The house flows well. It is light filled and has numerous comfortable gathering places for reading, watching television, reconnecting with family. From it's fresh, fragrant, new linens, it's superior new appliances, outdoor and indoor seating for 8 with lovely tableware and crystal, we created beautiful dinners and evenings for our family. The large yard was perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach...which was easily handled with the beach towels, umbrellas, and chairs stored in a backyard storage shed! Everything to make our stay comfortable and memorable had been created by the owner, and we would love to rent Niptucket again! Thank you, Mrs Lyons, for a beautiful week!
