Main House: Undoubtedly one of the most coveted private estates on Nantucket Island, this is a truly one-of-a-kind 75 acre waterfront estate. The unique compound is accessed by an intriguing gatehouse through which the winding drive leads you over a wooden bridge toward the impressive siting of the main house, with rolling lawns spilling gently down to the water's edge of Polpis Harbor. This offering consists of a stunning five bedroom main house with water views from every room, a two bedroom cottage, a private and spectacular office/studio, a boat house right on the harbor for enjoying the phenomenal views, and a barn that has an attached two bedroom cottage. There are two fenced-in horse pastures for the equestrian and a sport court for athletic activities. Two moorings out front allow water enthusiasts easy access to fishing or sailboating, ready to go at a moments notice. Paddle boarding, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, fishing and kayaking can all be accessed right off the front lawn and with this much acreage, there are countless opportunities to add a pool, cabana, basketball court, putting green, stables or a tennis court. This property offers privacy, serenity, water views and exceptional living. This is a true luxury waterfront estate.
First Floor: The first floor is thoughtfully laid out for large family gatherings, where creating new memories is something an owner will enjoy for years to come. The formal entry opens into a grand living room, with soaring ceilings and a wall of picturesque windows looking out over a sprawling front lawn toward the harbor. The living room centers the home; to the west is an open concept dining, kitchen and comfortable sitting room where one can take in water views from every window while enjoying meals from the efficient chef's kitchen. The kitchen offers granite counters, double sinks, double ovens, two Sub-Zero refrigerators and a breakfast bar. Large sliding doors open out onto the expansive yard where you are steps away from enjoying a variety of water sports available off your own private peninsula. The informal entry to the main house is located off an attached two car garage that leads you via a bead boarded mudroom past a laundry room, media room and separate pantry before arriving at the sun filled and inviting kitchen. A cozy parlor is located off the east end of the living room where one can relax with a good book in front of one of the three fireplaces in the main house. A light and spacious master suite leads off the parlor offering 180 degree harbor views out multiple windows. A spacious walk-in closet and a grand bathroom with separate soaking tub, glass tiled shower, double vanities and laundry complete this wing of the home. A powder room with teak and holly floors off the formal living room rounds off the first floor.
Second Floor: There are two staircases that lead to the second floor. One winds up from the formal living room to an open landing where one gets fabulous views of the harbor through picturesque windows. There are four bedrooms on the second floor, all with private bathrooms that feature marble and limestone finishes. There are stunning views of the harbor from each bedroom. A second staircase leads off the back hallway down toward the mudroom entrance.
Basement: Partial unfinished basement in the main house.
Second Dwelling: A cozy two bedroom, two bath cottage with a kitchen that features a breakfast nook and a comfortable living room with water views, is located a short distance from the main house.
Other Structures: A short distance from both the main house and cottage is a light filled octagonal building that is currently used as an impressive office, offering privacy away from the main residence. The office boasts a cathedral ceiling with circular windows to allow in even more light; there is also a wet bar, and a full bathroom with a shower. The enchanting gatehouse/barn that has left many passersby curious, is located at the entrance to the property where access begins with checking in via an intercom system monitored by the main house. The barn offers storage with a second floor loft, and a separate workshop. Attached to the gatehouse/barn, is a charming two bedroom cottage with a kitchen, living room and bathroom, perfect for overflow house guests or for housing a nanny, housekeeper or estate manager.
