Experience Nantucket island‘s history, charm and enchantment in this historic five bedroom, three bath antique carriage house. Barntucket, once a horse and carriage barn, was built in the early 1800s and was actually rolled on tree logs to its present location. Converted in 1898 by Reverend Buckey and his family, Barntucket today maintains all its original detail. From ship lap planking on the walls to southern yellow pine floors, Barntucket is definitely a classic original. An intimate residence with much attention to detail, this house was honored by being featured in Metropolitan Home magazine and the coffee table book Nantucket Gardens and Houses.
Smoke free and child friendly, Barntucket accommodates up to ten people and can be rented by the day, week or month. Daily maid service, catering and special requirements can be arranged. Conveniently located in the exclusive Cliff Road area, Barntucket is just 1/4 mile from Steps Beach, the Cliffside Beach Club and the center of town. Barntucket also abuts Coffin Park, a nine-acre nature reserve and is just down the street from Nantucket’s Oldest House. Come experience some classic New England charm in this historic home.
