Poised to take advantage of sweeping views across Medouie Creek into Nantucket Harbor and the far horizon of Town, both house and guest are perfectly positioned on 6.2 acres in the most bucolic setting. The abutting Nantucket Conservation Foundation land compliments the property with a special tranquility. The changing light across the water, windblown grasses and turning colors enhance the views from season to season. The extensive stone work and plantings blend seamlessly into the landscape. Medouie Creek Association property owners have deeded mooring rights and access to Polpis Harbor, with a floating dock and storage for kayaks, dingy and stand-up paddle boards.
The main entry is in the center of the house with stone foyer and steps up to the main level. The foyer opens to a central dining room with wide glass doors to a beautiful stone terrace. Wrapping around the house with a soft curve the terrace views span across the grounds into the conservation land and deep down harbor. The living room features a wall of glass to take in the dramatic water views and alcoves on both sides create a nice balance in the space. The kitchen and mudroom were fully renovated in 2016 with a great design to enable a kitchen “see-through-the-house” harbor view. There are two islands, a built-in dining nook, custom cabinets, two built-in wall fridge/freezers, additional SubZero fridge drawers, built-in wine storage and ice maker. A fabulous family room that was added in 2016 extends from the kitchen with glass on three sides. There is extensive light, a central gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling and more exquisite harbor views. The side entrance has a open porch and the mudroom/laundry is outfitted with built-in cabinet storage and utility sink.
The stairs are a beautiful architectural feature that turn along the foyer walls leading to a large open-landing (renovated 2016) library/seating area with harbor views. The master suite at the west end of the house has the most dramatic views. The triple glass slider opens to a Juliet balcony overlooking this most magnificent setting. The Master bath (renovation 2016) is serene with a soaking tub, double vanity and walk-in shower with harbor views. Master walk-in closet (renovated 2016). The guest suites are opposite the library landing with full baths.
The lower level is fully finished with an open living space, an extensive office corner and two bedrooms with shared bath. There is another finished room suitable for many uses. Closets, finished and unfinished storage w/ “rough-in” plumbing. Exterior access to the utilities.

The cottage opens to the pool with a wonderful front porch and steps to the patio. This building is the perfect compliment to this property with a central great room, kitchen, dining and three bedrooms and three full baths. The second floor landing extends across the space with a sitting area that opens to a deck and incredible harbor views. The elevated terrace around the pool and spa have a gorgeous fieldstone wall surround and there is a waterfall feature off the invisible edge. Lindsay Custom Builders did the cottage in 2003.
