Union Lights

Heeding the call to town

Quietly tucked away on a north shore historic street, this quartet of fully-furnished homes pair seaside living with the island's charming business district. An idyllic Nantucket retreat, a convenient downtown address? A beachside retreat? We'll let you decide.

Harnessing the island's next renaissance

The vision for this foursome was simple: restore 42 Union Street as a fabled corner property at the heart of Town harbor. A century ago, the island's merchants and tradesmen valued function over form, and in doing so, birthed an iconic form of architecture. A stone's throw from Francis Beach and a turn around the corner from enviable shopping and dining, this is where bustle meets a back-to-basics way of life.
Connect with community and cherished rituals
In a place this rich in history and architectural influence, inspiration is found beneath every cobblestone. With window sills perfect for Daffodil Festival, ideal digs for Figawi, and entertainment spaces fit for post Christmas Stroll and Boston Pops get togethers, those who come to the island for community as much as coastal relaxation will find their calendar full.

Step back in time and into Town for lunch
While sun and surf beckon so many to this elbow of sand, Nantucket is awash in equally magnetic history. Dive deep on the island's industrial roots at the Whaling Museum and Nantucket Lightship Basket, both a short walk from the Union and Fayette Streets. Jethro Coffin House, the Museum of African American History, as well as a constellation of galleries are all flanked by cozy coffee klatches and lunch spots like The Bean and Provisions, offering history buffs and foodies a perfect pairing of delicious eats and enlightening conversation.

Home for traditions and trends
Reds from Murray's Toggary,  J. McLaughlin's gingham, and ring belts from the Nobby Shop have secured the island's sartorial reputation for decades. Yet newcomers like The Vault, Nantucket Looms, and Salty Soul represent fresh voices in fashion and home goods that residents at Union and Fayette streets will love stumbling upon just a few minutes from home.

Preserving austerity and authenticity

Each of Union Lights’ four properties were inspired by the island’s seaside beauty and maritime ideals of balance and dignity. The homes’ exteriors reflect Nantucket’s classic Quaker and Victorian architecture, but beyond each doorstep, one finds back-to-basics design matched with luxurious modern touches.

A fabled aesthetic fit for the modern era.

Union Lights is both a property and a collection. While our family of craftsmen stretches across the globe, regional vendors and local artisans helped make these fully furnished, completely turnkey homes quintessentially Nantucket.
