Located off the western tip of Nantucket on the way to Martha’s Vineyard, Tuckernuck Island is home to just 40 private houses scattered across the dunes, including this cozy cottage, originally an offshore lifesaving station. The 20-by-40-foot building was recently updated with red cedar and mahogany, and offers water views from its wraparound deck and bluestone patio. Throw open the huge double doors that once accommodated rescue boats to enjoy true open-air living. Inside, white bead-board paneling, butcher-block countertops, and a lofted bedroom lend the home a country vibe. The property will be sold fully furnished (good luck getting a sofa out there), which means if you buy it, you’ll be the proud owner of some antique whaling harpoons and an ATV.
