16 Cannonbury Lane, Nantucket MA 02554

New Listing in Sconset

16 Cannonbury Lane offers a classic Nantucket summer home that has undergone a fabulous renovation. The house and guest studio maintain their island charm yet provide the fit and finish that today's buyer wants. Situated on approximately half an acre, this fabulous retreat is just a short distance to a deeded beach, and moments away from afternoon strolls through the village of Sconset. Cannonbury Lane's thoughtful site design and amenities are complemented with community-wide dune-scaping and boardwalks framed with sea oats and sand. The neighborhood offers a Field House bordered by cutting gardens, that are situated toward the backside of the enclave, and can be used to enjoy yoga or simply to relax. Cannonbury Lane reminds you that your summertime on Nantucket is meant to be enjoyed at a slower, more relaxed pace. There are HDC-approved plans for a pool should a buyer choose to add one in the future. For more, view our Sconset neighborhood guide!

First Floor

The informal entry to this Sconset beach house is located on the north side of the home, and the formal entry marries this entrance in a light filled central hallway. There are three bedrooms on this level; two guest rooms are on the south side of the home; both have private exterior doors to a covered porch and both share a bathroom. To the right of the formal entrance is the third guest room with an ensuite bathroom and private access to an outdoor deck. A comfortable den separates these wings and features French doors that lead to a large covered porch that overlooks the spacious back yard and guest cottage.

Second Floor

The formal living room on the second floor has vaulted ceilings and is open, spacious and filled with abundant light. A fireplace anchors the room and separates two exterior decks; one that overlooks the back yard facing west, perfect for enjoying sundowners and watching the sunset, while the east facing deck overlooking the front yard, is where one can enjoy early morning coffee and the sunrise. The renovated kitchen has all new appliances and encourages gathering as it opens to the dining and living room. The primary suite has a private bathroom and multiple windows offering distant peaks of the ocean. A powder room completes this level.


Full unfinished basement with both interior and exterior access, ready for a buyer to create additional living space or keep as storage. A future basement plan could include two additional bedrooms and a bathroom.

Other Structures

The guest studio lives on two levels and could double as a pool cabana if a buyer chooses to put in a pool. The first floor offers a cozy den and a full bathroom. Two doors lead to the exterior. The second floor has two rooms that could accommodate overflow family or guests or be used as an office or yoga studio. A small powder room separates these two rooms. An attached oversized shed is a great space to store bikes and beach toys.

Sam Parsons was born, raised, and educated in Harare, Zimbabwe, and still considers herself an African at heart. After college, she was offered a much sought-after opportunity to work in the travel industry. She obtained her diploma, enabling her to sell local, regional, and international travel to both business and pleasure seekers. After that, Sam moved to South Africa to further her career, and she was able to travel the world extensively with her job. Sam then moved to London for two years, where she worked and continued to travel worldwide, visiting Europe, South East Asia, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada.

In 1995, Sam arrived on Nantucket for “the summer” and immediately fell in love with the island. Two years after arriving, she met her husband and made Nantucket her home. Professionally, she worked for eight years at the Nantucket Boat Basin and Nantucket Island Resorts, and for over three years as the Director of Membership Services at the exclusive Westmoor Club. In 2008, Sam joined Great Point Properties, bringing with her multiple years of experience working in the hospitality industry, and a database of satisfied clientele that she met along the way. Sam’s exceptional attention to detail and her knowledge and love of the island makes her the perfect choice for buyers, sellers, and renters alike.

When she isn’t in the office, Sam enjoys walking, practicing yoga, traveling the world and exploring different cultures, reading, cooking, going to the beach, and especially spending time with family and friends. She has been on the committee for Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket (Hospice) for the past ten years and has been a tutor for the ESL program at the Nantucket Atheneum since 2008. Sam considers herself the luckiest person in the world to have landed on Nantucket over 20 years ago and gets to call this fantastic island home.

Fun fact: Sam is extremely passionate about elephants, and supports many great organizations that do so much to protect them. She has visited the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, who are incredible angels on this earth, and also loves the International Anti Poaching Foundation and Big Life Africa who work tirelessly to protect African wildlife.
