Century House in Nantucket: A Private Residence by Life House

A newly renovated three-bedroom house is filled with vintage pieces and coastal details across three floors. It is complete with a light-filled kitchen, two living rooms, and an outdoor seating area.

An extension of our Federal-style mansion at Life House Nantucket, the Century House was specially designed to cater to groups seeking a more intimate and private experience in Nantucket. Accommodating up to six guests or three couples, it's ideally suited for extended stays on the island. The design is a thoughtful blend of elegance and local authenticity; incorporating locally sourced vintage pieces, the interiors provide a tangible connection to the island's heritage, ensuring guests feel both at home and deeply rooted in the locale.

THE DESIGN

The Coastal Federalist interior design, enriched with floral motifs, marries the rustic charm of historic timber details with vibrant hues like soft peach, dusty jade, and shades of blue. Handwoven coastal wallcoverings and hand-painted, flora-inspired furnishings from local artisans intertwine with curated galleries of vintage frames, reflecting both the geographic essence of the island and the home's historic past. This harmonious blend offers a vivid journey through time, art, and nature, encapsulating history, local artistry, and sophisticated comfort.

THE AMENITIES

The kitchen, the heart of the home, is luminous and outfitted for both culinary exploits and daily dining, featuring a state-of-the-art stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher for convenience. Additionally, the residence boasts two spacious living areas, ideal for unwinding and connecting, accentuated with a fireplace to ensure warm, intimate evenings. Outside, a semi-private seating area offers a tranquil space for alfresco relaxation or dining.

THE EXPERIENCE

Century House is the ideal locale for groups looking for both relaxation and adventure. With our Life House experiences, guests can easily book bike rides to explore the island's beauty. Beyond our doors, the island offers private boat rides, unique local shops, and even seaside yoga sessions. And as the day winds down, guests can enjoy a private tasting session with a renowned chef, ensuring a memorable end to their Nantucket day.

For those considering hosting private events, the Century House can be tailored to your requirements. Should you decide to take a break from cooking, we're on hand to introduce you to a skilled private chef from one of the island's esteemed restaurants, ensuring your event is memorable and hassle-free.

Conveniently, the Century House is situated on the same property as our Life House, Nantucket, offering guests easy access to a broader experience.
