183 Polpis Road, Nantucket, MA
Where privacy meets sophisticated living, this six acre compound has been flawlessly executed by renown J. Brown Builders and decorator Kathleen Hay. Beginning at the winding drive, a private stone lane meanders past the guest quarters to the main house. Gracefully sited on a knoll at the highest elevation on the lot, enjoy first floor views of Nantucket Harbor, the moors, and conservation land; stunning sunsets and endless stars light up the night sky. An expansive lawn unfolds, leading to walking paths on the property which join trails throughout hundreds of acres of protected land. The stunning great room is at the heart of the home with a soaring cathedral ceiling and wood-burning fireplace. An enclosed porch off the dining area offers a three-season space for dining and lounging. There is a second sitting area off the kitchen with a wood-burning fireplace. Outside, there is a covered portico with a fireplace. An outdoor kitchen with grill, gas burners and water is sited off the side entrance, where there is also a mud-room entrance with access to one of four sets of washers and dryers, as well as access to the two-car garage. The luxurious master suite offers a wood-burning fireplace, a private balcony with Harbor views, bathroom with soaking tub, and two walk-in closets. Five additional, spacious bedrooms are all en-suite. The lower level offers a screening room, wine cellar, gym, steam shower, full bathroom with jacuzzi tub, living room with fireplace and bar, and massage room with private exterior access. The guest quarters are sited off a winding walking path and offer a bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor, and on the second floor there is a kitchenette and living room. Pocket doors separate a bedroom with four built-in full-size beds. A gorgeous, infinity edge-pool and spa are immersed in a natural setting with a pool house with a full bathroom. Walking trails lead to an orchard of mature apple trees and an aerated koi pond shaded by a weeping willow. Completing this perfect oasis is a turn-key, Har-Tru tennis court with tennis hut. The home has been impeccably maintained and lovingly cared for; no detail has been overlooked.
