About Carolyn Crowley
I grew up in Washington, D.C., Detroit, and Ireland. My family went to Ireland because American doctors could not diagnose what was wrong with my sick father. My mother thought we should move there so he could die in Ireland. But a country Irish doctor, just by feeling my father's skin, knew he had pernicious anemia. My father lived to age 91, many of his years spent in Windswept, our main Nantucket house, next-door to In the Lee. I have two degrees from Boston University: BA in English Literature and a MA in English Education. I taught fourth grade at an international school in Nagoya, Japan, and then English as a Second Language (ESL) in Japan (1968-1970), before becoming a reporter for the Mainichi Daily News in Osaka. I then volunteered with the Peace Corps in Fes, Morocco, the cultural capital, teaching nutrition and ESL (1972-1974). Back in the States, I taught fourth grade on Long Island, seventh/eighth grade English in Baltimore and, substitute taught in Boston. My favorite of all my jobs: I wrote newspaper and magazine stories 1980-2011 in Washington, D.C., and traveled the world getting my information. I moved to Nantucket September 2011. My husband and I have a Doberman we love and pamper. He is friendly to all people and dogs. Like my parents and our tenants, I love Windswept and In the Lee. They lack nothing and are as comfortable as a home should be.
Carolyn Crowley purchased this House in 1965
Why Carolyn Crowley chose Nantucket Town
My mother immediately fell in love with this property on her first visit to it in 1965. My father, however, wanted to live on the 'Sconset Bluff. Thankfully Mom won. They both loved Nantucket and our acre on a hill in Nantucket Town with its grand views of the Old Mill and Town so much that they moved permanently to the Island when Dad retired at age 70 as a Boston Globe editorial writer.
What makes this House unique
In the Lee is close to several beaches and to downtown Nantucket, where tenants will want to shop, dine, attend theatrical performances and movies. It seems as if all our guests walk downtown each evening to the Juice Bar to get ice cream cones. Because of its height on one of Nantucket's highest points, In the Lee enjoys delightful summertime breezes throughout the day and night. Our In the Lee guests relax, read, converse with each other, and eat in the backyard, which has a charcoal grill, Adirondack chairs, chaise lounges, and a teak picnic table and teak chairs. Guests enjoy privacy at In the Lee because the house, the two-car off-street parking area and backyard are not seen from the street.
