Blueberry Hill—Douglass and Caroline Ellis

Blueberry Hill—Douglass and Caroline Ellis

Nantucket, MA
Open Days

An oak forest and tupelo grove protect the house and garden from ocean winds. The naturalistic landscape, designed by Lucinda Young, contrasts with rolling serene meadow views of West Polpis Harbor. An enclosed garden, set in a small building envelope on a conservation restriction, consists of heaths, heathers, and a crabapple espalier. A hidden garden contains a flower and shade garden. Chickens roam the property.
