Following a major renovation completed for 2023, this premier Nantucket estate has it all including features available nowhere else: 5,000 square feet of enclosed formal gardens yielding weekly organic vegetables, private par 3 golf surrounded by conservation land, a 14+ seat movie theater and an optional 2,000 square foot function barn that is as great for exercise and yoga sessions as it is for dinners, parties or just hanging out. The guest house, not visible from this main residence with an acre of land between the two, can be rented separately bringing property capacity to 21. Perfect for large groups and celebrations with a total capacity of 21.

This is the largest rental property in Surfside comprised of over five acres nestled within an additional 25 acres of protected Land Bank land and is frequented by scores of entertaining bird populations (e.g., barn owls, northern flickers, hummingbirds). Within popular Surfside, it is a serene sanctuary that is right where you want to be offering residents coveted privacy and proximity unparalleled on Nantucket’s south shore. Multiple access points from the property connect to adjoining systems of trails and bike paths leading to popular Surfside beaches (0.5 miles), gourmet groceries (2 miles) and town (3 miles).

Enjoy your morning coffee among butterflies and bird songs in the formal gardens. Stroll to secluded south shore beaches on direct-from-property trails in ten minutes. Gaze from your infinity pool over acres of Weweeder Marsh as red tailed hawks, red-winged black birds and yellow warblers frolic above waving reeds. Throw a garden party or celebrate cocktail hour around the garden table. Chill in your hammock grove. Light a bonfire in your stone fire pit. On your schedule, perfect your swing and short game toward your putting green. Retreat to the cabana, billiards room or downstairs lounge to watch the game. After a day at the beach, relax in your movie theater, living room or downstairs lounge, all with big screens, surround sound and content including cable TV, iTunes Movies, Apple TV+, Netflix, Disney+ and Prime Video. Sonos abound. Three outdoor showers.

There is something for everyone in this 8,000+ square foot home and room to wander outside.

Pool, Cabana, Golf and Surrounds

The cabana wet bar has a sink, wine fridge, and ice maker. There is a television equipped with cable and other content in the cabana bar that is viewable from the pool deck. There are two outdoor showers nearby.

Outside the backyard hedge there is a stone fire pit, a hammock grove and golf. Four tee locations provide residents with par three golf toward the single green from different angles and distances (120, 90, 60 and 30 yards). Obstacles include pitching over pines from below the infinity pool, shots straight down the fairway with rough that is unforgiving on slices and a sand trap by the green. On site are hammocks, bocce and golf balls and equipment, including two righty par 3 club sets with universal putters (one lefty wedge).

The estate’s celebrated formal gardens are professionally managed with organic practices. Residents enjoy complimentary seasonal weekly harvests to your doorstep from June through the great bounty weeks after Labor Day, potentially through Thanksgiving. Complimentary garden walk throughs can be arranged when the gardener is on site for harvests. The gardens are open 24/7 for residents to explore and sample, seat 12 at the garden table, and, if the property is rented by two separate parties, are available for resident exclusive use by advanced reservation.
