There are few homes on Nantucket Island that can include the Atlantic Ocean as a feature of the back yard. This is one of them. The home sits on a grassy parcel overlooking a south shore beach approximately 30 feet below. This is reached by a stair made of bluestone blocks set into the hillside. The house itself is grand but accessible. The main living area is backed by a wall of floor to ceiling windows and doors. These look out onto the pool and ocean beyond. There is a large fireplace with antique tile surround. Adjacent to this space, giving the feeling of an open floor plan, is the gourmet kitchen and dining area. Again, this space looks out to the ocean. All high end appliances equip this large kitchen. The counter surfaces are exceptional. Also on this level is a very large master suite with sitting area, fireplace, and en-suite bath with soaking tub and shower. This set of rooms is currently used as a family room and den, which suits it very well. On the upper level are three bedrooms, two with en-suite baths. The large room at the rear of the house serves as the master, since the bath is large and detailed. There is a sitting room with fireplace and office area. Here, there is a deck with sweeping views of the sea. The lower level of the home is a large open space for media and gaming (pool table included). There is an attached gym, bunk room, full bath, and kitchenette. The outdoor spaces include a circular drive with many parking options (including a two bay garage), large fenced lawn, and deck with many seating options surrounding a pool and spa.
The main floor of the home has a bright, open quality that is created by the floor to ceiling windows and doors at the back of the house. These stretch from the rear of the kitchen, across the living room, and to the master suite. The light that comes in is tinged with the blue of the ocean that is a very present element of this home. The kitchen is quite large and stocked with all the quality equipment one expects (Wolf, SubZero, Asko). Lots of storage here. Adjacent to the living area is the master suite. It is a set of rooms composed of a sunny sitting area, central area with fireplace, and en-suite bath. This set of rooms is currently being used as a family room / den and it does this rather well.
At the top of the stair is a sunny sitting room with fireplace and office area. French doors open out to a deck with a sweeping view of the Atlantic. There are three bedrooms, two with en-suite baths. The largest of the three is at the back of the house and has its own private deck. This bedroom is used as the master as it has the more elaborate bath in the home. There is a soaking tub, large glassed-in shower and a beautiful and interesting double vanity made from glass.
The basement has both interior and separate exterior access. It is primarily a large open space with media area, pool table, and kitchenette with a great deal of storage and large separate SubZero fridge and freezer. There is an attached gym with an assortment of quality equipment and a mirror forming one wall. Additionally there is a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds. There is a full bath on this level.
