This Classic Nantucket-Style Home on Saugatuck Island Is Available to Rent or Buy

A Nantucket-style home called “Sandtucket” on Saugatuck Island in Westport seems purpose-built for both work and play. The listing is flexible in other ways as well, listed for $3.5 million, and also available to rent for $35,000/month.

To dispense with the “work” part of the equation: There are two, top-floor, loft-style offices that have access to a roof deck and views over Long Island Sound—which very possibly will win the award for the best Zoom backdrop ever. The play options are award-winning, too. The lower floor has a large family room that opens onto a level backyard, a sunken patio with fire pit, and an outdoor shower. From there, it’s a stroll to the sandy private beach and the Cedar Point Yacht Club’s marina and summer café. The open-plan main floor has a gorgeous kitchen and great room and a massive wall of glass with an adjoining outdoor terrace.

In total, there are three bedrooms, including a master suite with its own patio and spa bath. Leslie Clarke Homes, affiliated with William Raveis, has the listing.
