House tour- relaxed elegance in Nantucket...

Built in the 1860's..a family's favourite rental home is finally bought by them and beautifully renovated in a style that is 'Nantucket meets Miami'..to create a modern summer retreat which is "young, fresh and fun". Let's take a tour of the house they call 'Sandhill'...





A contemporary yet warm aesthetic dominates the library and permeates the whole house which looks wonderfully relaxed and welcoming ...





The predominantly white palette..lends a crisp and fresh look to the interiors...while the slightly beaten look of the floors is a nod to the sand-duney nature of the site...




The beautiful minimalistic breakfast area features the iconic Saarinen chairs...




Isn't this kitchen gorgeous...




The all-white master bedroom is punctuated with pops of orange...




The master bath features a free-standing bathtub made from volcanic limestone and resin...





One of my favourite rooms in this house..the kids' bedroom..it is just perfect!




The office area features a lucite table flanked by a pair of upholstered and skirted chairs...such an unusual detail...




The path from the house that leads to the Surfside Beach....Could it be more perfect?
