The majestic panoramic views of Polpis Harbor are the backdrop of this newly constructed and elegant custom-built home abutting 22 acres of privately owned open space. The highly respected team of O’Connor Custom Builders and Botticelli & Pohl Architects has collaborated to create a spectacular Nantucket estate property that has been mindfully designed and built, as well as landscaped and decorated to perfection! With scrupulous attention to detail, only the highest level of materials and craftsmanship has been used to create this private summer oasis which feels like it has always been there, set high on the property to take advantage of the outstanding water views. The main house, which is open and light-filled, offers three full floors of living space as well as many state of the art amenities. The home also includes all Waterworks fixtures, custom tile work, top-of-the-line appliances, shiplap details throughout and exquisite fumed French wide board white oak floors. The original guest “farmhouse” has been renovated with the same level of detail while maintaining its historic integrity and quiet sophistication. One of the many special features of the property is the private path to Polpis Harbor, which allows for easy access for all of your summer water activities! The property includes a 16’ x 46’ heated pool, several decks with harbor views, multiple stone patios for entertaining and relaxing, a fire pit and an expansive back lawn area surrounded by beautiful landscaping. This is a rare offering that captures the true essence of island living at
its best!
First Floor: A naturalized bluestone walkway winding through native vegetation and fieldstone retaining walls leads to the front entry of the main house from a bridge over the stream separating the house from the guest house. One enters into a beautiful and spacious open living room/dining room area with fumed French oak floors, a coffered ceiling and views through to the rear of the property as well as acres and acres of Land Bank owned property abutting to the West and North. The sitting area is anchored around an elegant see-through double-sided soapstone lined fireplace.

A pair of doors lead out from the living room to the covered back deck, stone patio, expansive lawn, gardens, fire pit, pool and cabaña area.
