6.2 acres in one the most picturesque locations on the island. Looking across the estuary into the upper harbor, the main house and guest cottage are poised to take advantage of sweeping water views and the horizon of Town. Changing light, windblown grasses and turning colors enhance the vista from season to season. Sunsets are spectacular. The abutting Nantucket Conservation Foundation land further compliments the quietude and tranquility of this spot. Extensive stone work and vegetation blend seamlessly into the landscape. Medouie Creek Association property owners share deeded mooring rights with private access to Polpis Harbor right off Medouie Creek Road. There is a floating dock and storage for kayaks, dingy and stand-up paddle boards.
The main entry has a stone foyer and a two-story vaulted ceiling where the staircase winds to the second floor. The central space of the house has great versatility with wide glass doors ahead to a beautiful stone terrace that wraps around the house with a nice arc. Views span across the grounds and deep down harbor. The living room is forward of the central space with a wall of full light glass doors and transom to take in the light and the views. Alcoves on both sides feature custom built-ins that balance the space and afford separate areas for seating or dining. The kitchen was completely re-envisioned in 2016 to open the walls and “see-through-the-house” to views and sunsets. A cook’s dream with two islands and custom cabinetry ideally placed for function and aesthetic (including two built-in wall fridge/freezers, additional SubZero fridge drawers, built-in wine storage and an ice maker) and a breakfast dining nook. Great flow into the new addition family room that features a gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling, windows on three walls and more views across the property to the harbor. The entry from the parking area to the back porch comes through the mudroom that is handsomely outfitted with built-in storage and a custom window seat.
The stairs to the second floor are a beautiful architectural feature turning along the foyer walls to a large open-landing library and seating area. The master suite at the west end of the house has the most dramatic views with a triple glass slider that opens to a Juliet balcony overlooking this most magnificent setting. The master bath is elegant and serene with beautiful tile, walk-in glass shower, a soaking tub and double vanity. The guest suites are opposite the library sitting area with full baths. Above the library landing area the ceilings are vaulted to a cupola that floods the space with light.
Storage shed & single car garage attached to the guest cottage. Exterior access to cottage utility room. Oil/FHA in cottage.
The cottage is perfectly positioned to compliment the property. The pool and spa are built into the raised terrace to take advantage of the phenomenal views. The living space is generous with a central family room that enjoys open vaulted ceilings and glass doors to bring in great light. There is a galley kitchen with laundry area and options for dining spaces. Two first floor guest suites and a third bedroom on the second floor with a separate sitting area and full bath off the hall. A gorgeous fieldstone-wall surrounds the pool with an invisible edge waterfall feature. Lindsay Custom Builders did the cottage in 2003. There is an attached single car garage.
