Sign us up for summers by the shore at this Nantucket home, which has all the makings of the perfect vacation escape: It’s a short walk to the beach, offering peaceful sunset views of the harbor outside and luxury finishes inside. The home was recently renovated and is located in Monomoy, a neighborhood close to the downtown area of Nantucket. Plus, it offers access to the secluded Cathcart Beach, along with a site for a pool.
“The views from Monomoy to Town and Coatue are unparalleled,” says Greg McKechnie, Principal Broker at Great Point Properties in Nantucket, MA. “Monomoy offers a feeling of the classic Nantucket summer vacation, with some of the best shellfishing and boating in nearby Monomoy.”
The main living areas are spacious with French doors that open onto a covered patio, cathedral ceilings and a state-of-the-art kitchen with Wolf range and SubZero refrigerator. Behind the great room is a small office, powder room, laundry closet and access to the two-car garage.
The back stairs lead to a large guest bedroom, a seating area, an en-suite bath with double marble sinks and a separate shower closet.
Upstairs, the primary suite is its own getaway. “Overlooking the harbor, there is comfortably sized seating area, two walk-in closets, washer and dryer, and an en-suite bathroom with double marble sinks. “You truly have everything you need in this suite,” says McKechnie.
Outside, a sprawling yard provides gardens and a covered patio ideal for grilling and dining. “Stunning sunrises and sunsets over Nantucket Harbor provide the perfect setting,” says McKechnie. The home is part of the Shimmo Pond Association, which gives deeded harbor access to a private beach.
The basement and an attached two-car garage provide additional room for storage.
