This quintessential Nantucket waterfront retreat, in one of the most coveted and iconic locations on island, has been loved, enjoyed, and meticulously maintained by the present family for the last 45 years. From sunrise to sunset, there is always something to do or watch from this idyllic Brant Point setting. Breathtaking, sweeping views in every direction, and the ever-present reminder of the natural beauty of Nantucket provide the calm and tranquility that beckon so many to this island. Offering over 6900 square feet of finished living space flowing beautifully to the outside with generous porches, balconies, decks, landscaped yard with lovely gardens, beach, and bulkhead, there is plenty of room for family and friends to enjoy all that this island offers, throughout the year. Four levels of waterfront living include a modern, open floor plan, 8 bedrooms offering terrific privacy, a full basement for boat storage and more; a two car garage, and the convenience of Town, moments away. Originally built in 1890 and ultimately run as a ten bedroom guest house called the Moorings until the present family purchased it in 1974. Renovated then, and again in 2001-2 when it was taken down to the studs and completely rebuilt and expanded with the aid of architect, Luke Thornewill, retaining and enhancing its architectural integrity to take full advantage of every view. This is an incredible opportunity for the buyer seeking a front row seat to the best of Nantucket.Parking

Brant Point is one of the most sought-after areas on Nantucket Island to spend a summer vacation. Much of this gorgeous corner of town is on the water or a very short walk to it. Brant Point is situated on Nantucket Harbor, allowing constant views of beautiful boats passing by. The quiet streets of Brant Point are perfect for a leisurely bike ride or walk with the kids before or after a day at the beach. Brant Point Lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in the country, sits at the entrance to the harbor and provides a lovely spot for picnicking, fishing, or lounging in the sun.BRANT POINT ACTIVITIES
Just to the west are the calm waters of Jetties Beach, along with Jetties Restaurant and Galley Beach Restaurant. Other restaurants within the Brant Point neighborhood are the Brant Point Grill (within the White Elephant Hotel) and the uber swanky and chic Lola 41. The center of town is a short walk away, home to world class shopping, museums, entertainment, nightlife, and many other fabulous restaurants. On a rainy day, stop by the Whaling Museum to catch a glimpse of the island’s rich maritime history, or pop into the recently rebuilt Dreamland Theatre for a movie or concert.
Brant Point offers excellent views of both the annual Independence Day and Boston Pops fireworks displays. Enjoy them from the deck or yard of one of our stately Brant Point vacation homes, or set up a blanket on the beach and bring your favorite picnic treats. Brant Point is also the prime island location for watching the Nantucket Race Week regattas in August. Relax on the beach while watching the Hobie, International One Design, and Open Laser Regattas, the Opera House Cup, and of course the beloved Rainbow Fleet Parade.BRANT POINT VACATION RENTALS
