This Beachfront Nantucket Estate Is a Dream Summer Escape for $17.5M

It seems to be the year of the compound. Now that the Obamas have a new compound on Martha’s Vineyard, it will be easy for them to take the high-speed inter-island ferry over to visit you if you buy this extraordinary compound on Nantucket. Set on 4 acres with nearly 300 feet of water frontage, there is private access to miles of pristine beach stretching from Eel Point to Jetties Beach.

Situated high on the dunes on the North Shore, there are ocean water views from nearly every room. The dreamy main house has three bedrooms and a separate studio apartment with a one-bedroom suite above an oversized two-car garage. In perfect Nantucket style, there is the elegant wide porch with an outdoor kitchen and enclosed herb and vegetable garden.

To ensure ultimate privacy while providing impeccable accommodations for family and friends, there is an additional guest cottage that has a wrap-around deck, gourmet kitchen and three en suite guest rooms, all with access to the stairs leading to the beach.

The main house and guest house can be purchased separately or together. To buy both, it will cost $17.5 million, and to nab the main house on its own will cost $10.95 million while the guest house will cost $8.95 million.
