Upon his first visit to Nantucket several decades ago, Donald Burns knew he would one day own a home there. He fell in love with the remote feeling and detachment of a community reachable only by ferry or plane.
He created a beautiful island retreat, designed by noted architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, that masterfully blends Nantucket's historic fabric with a nod toward modernism. Although the home has tall, pitched roofs with dormers, it is only a single story. The result is a brilliantly bright and open interior with dramatic spatial impact.
