Harbor Hill

Nantucket, Massachusetts, 2013

 

­­­­­Sited on a spectacular hill overlooking Nantucket Harbor, a cluster of 12 small structures, appearing at first as a group of smallish classic shingled Nantucket cottages, a new residence reveals itself.  A classic Jacobsen concept; each gabled building dedicated to its own purpose: living room, kitchen, dining room, office, etc., the tallest building reaching 26 feet high with generous surrounding square footage.  Crisp, clean-lined furnishings, largely designed by the Jacobsen firm underscore the notion that large house can still have seaside cottage feel.
