Poised to take advantage of sweeping views across Medouie Creek into Nantucket Harbor and the horizon of Town, house and guest enjoy 6.2 acres in the most bucolic setting. Abutting Nantucket Conservation Foundation land compliments the property with quietude and 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 a stone foyer and two steps to the main level. Currently appointed as a the central dining area, this space has great versatility with wide glass doors to the beautiful stone terrace. The terrace wraps around the house with a soft curve. The views span across the grounds into the conservation land and deep down harbor. The living room features a wall of glass with full light doors and transoms to take in the extensive views. There are alcoves on both sides with custom built-ins that create a nice balance of space. The kitchen and mudroom were completely re-envisioned in 2016 with a great design to open the walls and “see-through-the-house” to the view. Anchored with two islands, the space flows toward both the living and family rooms. There is also a built-in dining nook, extensive custom cabinets, two built-in wall fridge/freezers, additional SubZero fridge drawers, built-in wine storage and an ice maker. The family room was a fabulous addition in 2016. It features a gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling, window on three walls and further views across the property to the harbor. The entry from the parking area to the back porch comes through the mudroom. This utility space is handsomely outfitted with great built-in storage and a custom window seat.
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.
