Commissioned to artfully intertwine Nantucket’s classic New England charm, international sophistication, and exquisite natural beauty, America’s leading post-and-beam designer Tedd Benson outdid himself, styling not only one but two magnificent structures overlooking the island’s famed cranberry bogs minutes from the harbor and beloved Atlantic Ocean beaches. Sequestered privately on four luxuriant acres beset with two stone patios and with sweeping space for a future pool and tennis court, the houses happily not only invite contemplation and creativity but hospitably afford superlative settings for entertaining in the welcoming casually elegant Nantucket tradition. Infusing heartwarming spirit through the use of flowing architecture, view-filled windows, cathedral ceilings, cherry woodwork and cabinetry, and professional gourmet kitchen equipment, Benson achieved all that he set out to do, and more. When you step into the island idylls it is easy to see why the classic book At Home in Nantucket and Smithsonian Magazine chose to feature the peaceable pastorale. It is a captivating country seat that articulates to perfection what has drawn visitors and residents from all over the world to the historic little whaling capital of Massachusetts for centuries now—to a place where the past and present delightfully intermingle and, best of all, where time itself seems to stand still.
