Traditional charm and lots of room for the family make this home overlooking the Atlantic the quintessential Nantucket getaway. Built in the 1950s, it has been renovated (circa 2001) and maintained to be move-in ready for the next homeowner.
“Nantucket buyers are looking for a product that accommodates their friends and family, fits into their lifestyle, and is buttoned-up and ready to go,” says real estate agent Greg Mckechnie, principal broker with Great Point Properties in Nantucket, MA, who adds this property hits all the checkpoints.
Guests enter the home shoreside from the beautiful wrap-around pergola-covered porch overlooking the ocean. An open living room and dining room have cathedral ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. Walk through the dining room into the bright and cheery kitchen where an island seats three for breakfast and a wide window shows water views. Off the kitchen, a cozy sitting room with another fireplace is a great spot to unwind by the fire or take in the view through French doors. Another set of French doors leads to a brick inlaid sunroom that steps out to the pool area—a favorite room according to McKechnie. “It’s inviting and warm and beckons one to the outdoor space. It has a wet bar by the door to the bluestone patio, making entertaining in the summer a breeze,” he adds.
Also on the first floor, a private office overlooks the grounds with mature hydrangeas.
The home boasts four bedrooms, all of them en suite. “Two of the bedrooms [including the primary suite] has its own staircase so every guest can enjoy a private stay,” says Mckechnie. On the second level, two private decks offer more views of the dunes, beach and ocean.
Who might be the home’s ideal buyer? “Someone who loves and appreciates the quiet beauty of Nantucket and has a timeless taste in architecture,” says Mckechnie. While the location is just a short trip to Nantucket’s Great Point Lighthouse and The Wauwinet, which houses Toppers Restaurant, he adds: “The privacy and solitude of this property are unparalleled.”
