Many Castles is a completely furnished and equipped "upside-down" house located on the south side of Nantucket Island. Access to Many Castles is provided by a privately maintained road which winds through more than a mile of conservation land in beautiful Maddequecham Valley. This exclusive area of the Island is protected by Nantucket law and consists of only a dozen or so homes nestled among several thousand acres of moors, meadows and beaches. Yet you are only several minutes by car from the shopping and excitement of Nantucket Town.
Built in 1983 in a style reminiscent of the Federal Period with its hipped roof and ornamental widow's walk, Many Castles is situated to take maximum advantage of 180 degree ocean views from the expansive second level walk-out deck. A broad, sandy ocean beach, well known by island natives for its privacy, beauty and excellent fishing is just a ten minute walk down an idilic path through unspoiled heartland and meadows. Or enjoy volleyball at our backyard court.
The interior of the house features an expansive upper-level great room with vaulted ceilings, exposed oak beams, white-washed walls and wide-plank floors. Panoramic views of the Atlantic and moors greet the eye from every perspective. Many Castles has been tastefully decorated with modern decor and artwork, suggesting a festive environment replete with light and color. Creature comforts such as color TV, satelite dish, VCR, CD and stereo are provided, and guests are encouraged to bring along their favorite videotapes and CD's. The house is equipped for baby or small child, with crib, bed rail and high chair.
The kitchen is completely equipped for the cook and includes, of course, a microwave oven and dishwasher. The dining room comfortably seats eight, or you may wish to dine al fresco on the fully appointed deck which includes chaise lounges, a gas grill and table and chairs. A half bath rounds out the upper level.
The lower level consists of three bedrooms and a 4th den with double sofabed. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed. Two bedrooms each have a queen bed and a twin chair-bed. The den has a comfortable double sleeper sofa. Mattresses are new and firm and linens are of the highest quality. A large full bath and modern laundry facilities are also located on the lower level. A private outside hot shower is available for trips back from the beach.
