The House Beautiful OR "An Almost Deranged Passion"

Last night we entered an ivy-woven courtyard, sat on teakwood chairs and—sipping wine and nibbling on prosciutto appetizers and exquisite cookies--admired signs of Sankaty head light house and the Nantucket railroad decorating the garden shed.   Our hosts have the most aesthetically original house on Nantucket.  Design by TIOLI: over the years, they have selected the best of the best from the town dump and other sources, and created an historic theme park, each room devoted to a person or a cause:  Religion, Africa, Napoleon, Dance.  And there’s a hot tub.  The location is an absolute secret as are the owners, but I’ll give you a clue:  they are not billionaires.
