'The Fluke' is an historic private house, on famous Cliff Road, walking distance to the white sand beaches of the North shore and to Main Street. The house is ‘Old Nantucket’, practical and comfortable, with nooks and crannies that enchant grown-ups and children alike. It is perfect for those seeking original Nantucket atmosphere. Though minutes’ walk to the island’s main attractions (town, the harbor, and the north shore beaches), it is quiet and private overlooking the bird sanctuary with a view of the harbor in the distance - perfect for cocktails watching the sun set in the west.
The L shaped layout provides two entrances facing Cliff Road: The formal main entrance, leads to the library/TV room, formal living room, and screened-in porch. The “back door” or “kitchen door” leads past the outdoor shower to the mud room and laundry room, the office/hang-out spot, the back stairs, the vintage, eat-in kitchen (for 8), and then the dining room (seats 12) with doors to the deck. Also on the first (ground) floor is BR1, with 2 twins (can be pushed together for a king), and a bathroom with shower.
On the second floor: At the top of the stairs is the second BA, with claw-foot tub/shower. BR2 on the NW corner has one double and one extra-long twin bed, and a private basin. BR3 is the large master bedroom with king bed and the best view of the water, with private basin. BR4 faces the front walk, and 1 double bed; BR5 overlooking the deck has 2 twin beds, a pair of bunk beds, a sink for brushing teeth etc., and it connects to the third bathroom, with claw-foot tub/shower. BR6 is at the top of the back stairs, with 1 double and one twin bed, and its own basin. Also at the back is a nanny single with baby cot. Air conditioners in BR 3, BR5, BR6 and the nanny single. Otherwise fans in every room.
The house is lived-in, and 4 adult bicycles, beach gear (towels, chairs), board games, and other furnishings are available for your use.
