I recently returned from a beautiful Labor Day Weekend in Nantucket. The weather was sunny, crisp, and absolutely breathtaking. It wasn’t my first time visiting the enchanting island, and it certainly won’t be my last. The island is full of history with a quaint charming town with lovely shopping, a wharf with some mega yachts (owned by some mega names), and a fabulous collection of restaurants. Beaches, bike trails, and lighthouse exploring will keep you active with an abundance of fresh clean air. Also, don’t forget to look up at night to see shooting stars and all the beauty of the starry night sky.
While the trip is worth the destination, it is also worth the jaw dropping architecture. My post on shingle style home was a brief glimpse into what I was about to encounter on the island. Whether homes that are side by side in town, cliff side mansions, or sprawling estates, the one thing that Nantucket homes have in common is a focus of good taste and charming ambience. Landscaping is also key to these often simple shingle and clapboard homes.
I hope these images can bring a serene sense to your Wednesday! See more on Part Two of Nantucket tomorrow!
A quaint island town that you will no doubt fall in love with instantly!
Tommy Hilfiger’s previous island home.
I love all the white picket fences.
This clapboard is high gloss. I found that to be quite an interesting texture on the home.
A perfect summer estate.
Hedges just work so seamlessly on the island.
