Nantucket vs. Martha’s Vineyard

It was fun to play the NY vs. Boston real estate game last week, so when I saw these two properties I had to do it again. Granted, they are not for sale, but bring up the classic Boston-dweller dilemma- Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard?  These islands are right next to each other, but people seem to be drawn to one or the other.  Architectural Digest published both these homes and I’d love to know which one you’d prefer- the crisply renovated Nantucket home of Victoria Hagan or the antique charms of the Martha’s Vineyard home of Sir Evelyn and Lady de Rothschild?

Tough choice, right? I, personally, would take Victoria’s Nantucket house in a HOT MINUTE (because I love Nantucket and think her house is pretty perfect). What about you?
