With a 5 bedroom Main House, 1 bedroom Guest House, pool and a cabana… 56 Squam is a dreamy island property that is ready for you to simply move right in.
“56 Squam allowed me to express my own personal style that would appeal to a buyer while honoring the views,” Designer Elisa H. Allen told us during our tour. Steve Boukus of Clean Line Developments “gave me total freedom with the design and let me fly with my imagination.” The results are gorgeous and grand, chic and comfortable, playful and sophisticated. Elisa’s design will transport you to a space of where traditional meets trend and where a timeless essence of island living flows throughout.
“The kitchen is edgy and contained but still part of the living experience,” she told us. Throughout the home, you’ll find high end modern appliances seamlessly entwined with unexpected attention to detail, like the birds that soar up the cathedral ceilings and the exposed beams that give off so much light.
You’ll find youthful fabrics combined with modern furnishing which create a constant eye candy throughout the property. As Elisa said, “56 Squam is created for the family who loves privacy but values the compound experience.” The result is a home that is current and stylish, while remaining comfortable and inviting. A stellar combination!
“People come to Nantucket to get away and enjoy our beautiful beaches,” Listing Broker Chris Kling told us. “Squam offers one of the most secluded and pristine beaches just 50 yards from 56 Squam. And to follow up, the privacy factor in Squam is huge. Most of the lots on this road each sit on their own acre.” And when it comes to preservation and conservation, 56 Squam is literally covered.
Those who live in Squam have easy access to Great Point, Sesachacha Pond and are located in an area known for great fishing, At this home, you’ll find yourself close to Sconset, near two of the most prestigious golf courses, and surrounded by acres of Conservation Land. As Chris said, “If you truly know Nantucket, you know Squam and how special it is.”
56 Squam has spared no detail indoors and out.
With five bedrooms in the Main House and a one bedroom guest cottage…
On the walls, you’ll see beloved island photographer Lauren Marttila’s work framed in large format.
And the outdoor living space at 56 Squam is truly something special. From the 20’ x 40’ heated gunite pool with an auto cover and cabana to being surrounded by a large scale bluestone patio… the exterior oasis at 56 Squam has been blissfully curated for you.
Much diligence and creative thought went into designing an outdoor oasis which is framed by imported Pennsylvania field stonewalls, indigenous plantings and landscaping. You’ll also find several mahogany decks, including a covered front porch with ocean views!
