Open-concept floor plan, 3-bedroom house on Union Street designed by the architectural firm of Design Associates Nantucket. Custom built for style-book author Leslie Linsley, and built by Michael Haigley, on a corner lot just off Main Street. Set back from Union Street, there is plenty of private outdoor living space on a large, private back deck and brick patio surrounded by a garden and mature plantings. It is hard to believe you are just steps to Main Street. This property offers a lifestyle for those seeking the convenience of being part of the town, the harbor, Great Harbor Yacht Club and Washington Street Beach. There is off-street parking. Strong rental history.
First Floor: A brick walkway from the driveway leads to the front porch and into a large entryway with Mexican tile floor and a gas fireplace. Straight ahead is the living room and to the right, French doors lead into an office or small bedroom that overlooks the back garden and spa. To the left, two steps up to another level, is a spacious dining area and open kitchen with a breakfast island. A wall of French doors leads to the deck and brick patio with stepping-stones and plantings deliberately casual and leading to the spa area in back of the cottage. There is a powder room on the first floor and a hallway leading to a cozy, intimate den, custom-built to resemble the inside of a boat, with built-ins, TV, sound surround and a charming, corner, wood-burning stove built from early recycled bricks. A separate, large pantry room leads to a small, covered porch for bringing in groceries.
Second Floor: A stairway leads to the open, second floor master bedroom with skylight, a built-in, birchwood, wall-to-wall dresser, walk-in closet, linen closet and a bathroom with walk-in shower. Hand-crafted details abound, such as the curved ceiling at the top of the stairs, built-in niches for sculpture displays, and an old-fashioned, wood-burning stove in the kitchen/dining room, to take the chill off a rainy day.
Basement: A full basement, partially above ground with windows on 3 sides, is accessed from inside as well as outdoors.
