Summer may be about to end, but it’s never a bad time to invest in a beach house or, even better, an island home. Located on Nantucket, this classic colonial set on nearly an acre of lush, rolling land offers the opportunity for a balmy summer getaway. With its cozy nooks, brick driveway, shingle siding and arched doorway leading to a lush fenced yard, this home is truly the epitome of charm.

Inside this coastal cottage, you’ll find a nautical-inspired design with whites and blues mixed with warm wood accents, for a cool yet warm feel. The layout includes a mix of open spaces and smaller hiding places, so you can enjoy the company of friends or relax alone. On the first floor is the heart of the house, with a large open living room with a fireplace. Next to this space is an updated kitchen, fitted with sleek minimalist cabinetry against a gray backsplash. In the finished basement below is an additional TV room and paneled office space with built-in shelving.

As for the bedrooms, this house offers a fun touch with a room with built-in bunk beds in the basement, a feature that will make summer nights spent here memorable. There are also two further bedrooms on the upper levels, including the master bedroom on the first floor, which has vaulted ceilings.

Other special memories can be made outdoors, where the courtyard opens up to an outdoor living space. Here, you’ll find a patio for lounging and al fresco dining, as well as a hot tub for added relaxation. And there is an abundant backyard, thanks to the size of the plot, which lends itself well to outdoor games. It (along with the rest of the house) invites you to relax, have fun and create a summer full of memories, even if you have to wait for another season to make them.
