“Nantucket is one of the country’s most storied isles, a place where four centuries of American history can be sipped in every briny little oyster,” writer David Colman once reminisced in an article for Architectural Digest. He called the Massachusetts island “a kind of American Capri, synonymous with authentic New England architecture and charm.” This sweeping estate in the quaint village of Siasconset brilliantly pays homage to the Nantucket architectural tradition while keeping today’s lifestyles in mind.
Privately sited on a mature landscaped half-acre lot, the 6,359-square-foot residence was custom-built in only 2020. While the exterior – with its pitched roof, shingles, little ornamentation, and welcoming porch – is classic Nantucket as can be, the interiors are filled with an impressive collection of bespoke touches, luxe amenities, and a layout that facilitates the movements of a modern family.
A dramatic two-story foyer delivers your first introduction to the interiors, where a unique glass staircase, Dutch lap walls, and custom-stained hardwood floors immediately have a warm and grounding effect. At the heart of the home, there’s a generous two-story living area comprised of a family room with a fireplace and chef’s kitchen. The island, accented with a Michelangelo marble countertop, offers seating for four. Open from the kitchen, the dining room can accommodate casual meals or more formal dinner parties, as it’s equipped with a wet bar, wine cooler, and mini refrigerator.
Glass sliders from the kitchen lead to a bluestone patio and what listing agent Paige Yates of Coldwell Banker Realty in Weston calls a “flawlessly executed” backyard complete with a saltwater pool, hot tub, covered porch with fireplace for creating your own piece of paradise by the beach. A defining feature of the home is the first-level primary bedroom suite, while the study and office offer opportunities for reading, reflection, or catching up on work.
On the second floor, three ensuite bedrooms give each inhabitant of the house a sense of privacy. And not to be forgotten: the lower level provides two more ensuite bedrooms including a bunk room – perfect for guests and multiple families visiting – plus an expansive recreation room.
From start to finish, this impeccably designed and built home celebrates the dream of the American Capri in its purest form.
