Impeccable natural sanctuary just minutes from Town — and yet a world away. Located in the coveted Shimmo neighborhood, this spectacular property is set high on a hillside surrounded by tranquil landscaped gardens, stone walls, expansive bluestone patios, and impressive unobstructed water views to Great Point. A five-minute walk brings you to a private neighborhood beach, offering access to Nantucket Harbor and beyond. The wrap-around porch flows easily through matching French doors into an open-concept floor plan and renovated interiors, ideal for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. Thoughtfully designed interiors provide 3-4 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, stainless appliances, library, mahogany wet bar, and wine fridge. Dramatic architectural details and fine craftsmanship are a central feature of this unique home, which includes a custom-built curved loft reminiscent of a ship’s keel that anchors the mahogany helix ladder leading to the roof deck, where expansive views of the harbor await. Recent upgrades include new propane water heater, new mahogany roof deck, new alarm security system, Nest climate control system, new cedar gable vent, new copper vents, expanded parking areas, and a newly-established secret garden with a fire-pit and ample seating accessed by a custom-built mahogany and cedar bridge.

There is approximately 1,400 sq. ft. of ground coverage available to accommodate an expansion to the existing structure, new structure and/or pool. Town sewer is available on Gardner Road.
