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.

What we like about Wauwinet
The only business in the area, the Wauwinet Inn offers fine dining, spa services, exquisite rooms, and boat service to town for their guests and diners. Wauwinet is also where you access Great Point, the peninsula that forms Nantucket’s northernmost tip, and home to Great Point Light. Great Point remains under the protection of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation and the state’s Trustees of Reservations. An excursion along this ever-changing and unspoiled landscape, by boat or via four-wheel-drive vehicle, is a must-see while visiting Nantucket.Learn more
