A ” watersportsman” paradise and the ultimate Nantucket waterfront property! From sunrise to sunset, this upper harbor setting in the seaside enclave of Quaise embodies the classic Nantucket lifestyle, all four seasons!! Majestic, pristine views in every direction and from every window and the ever-changing vistas and sounds of the seascape/ landscape insure your complete relaxation from the stresses of life. Indulge in all that living on the water and “island life” offers… early morning swims from your own beach, kayaking, contemplative walks, shellfishing for mussels, scallops, and cherrystones and fishing for bass; all plentiful in your “front yard”, windsurfing, sailing, picnics on unspoiled Coatue, a 7 minute boat ride to Town for dinner, and incredible birding and osprey nests to enjoy. When you are finally ready to retreat inside, a custom 3+ bedroom year-round home thoughtfully built with unique details throughout awaits and captures the feel of a grand boathouse with a wonderful use of soothing woods and bead board ceilings throughout and every comfort one would need. This magical and private setting brings visions of summers past, while inspiring you to create memories of your own. A rare offering and fabulous opportunity for someone who wants the experience of savoring all that our pristine waters offer!
