One of our favorite ways to explore the island is to do so alongside some of our trusted real estate brokers … and to kick off a three day holiday weekend, we’ve got a trio of spectacular Nantucket properties all brought to you by our girl Carolyn Durand of Lee Real Estate! “We find beauty on the island all year round, and the arrival of Memorial Day weekend is like a ribbon cutting for me every year, “ Carolyn told us. So check out the scoop on three of her hottest properties to hit the market in 2019 as we take you on a tour from Cliff to Shawkemo to the beach in Madaket!
TOWN Hot Property
5 Deacons Way
LOCATION: OFF CLIFF
FOR SALE: $5.995M
CAROLYN SAYS… “Only 1.9 miles from Main Street but idyllically set between Cliff and Dionis, 5 Deacons is the just right sweet spot close to Town, close to my favorite North Shore beach access and right here at the bike path. Cisco & Madaket, Sanford Farm & Tupency Links are a few more great beaches, bike rides and walking trails in close range. With two private acres this is a perfect spot for those who want a pool ~ design and permit in hand. The house is just as good as the location with three finished floors of spacious open living. The cathedral ceilings on the second floor add to the fabulous light that shines throughout the house. The layout of the space is ideal for family and friends starting with the fabulous kitchen, dining and deck and continuing with four generous suites in the main house and a large guest suite above the two car garage. Lots of bonus rewards when you have a garage!”
COUNTRY Hot Property
FOR SALE: $9.9M
CAROLYN SAYS… “Shawkemo is a special part of the island where rolling topography creates the high elevation at 5 Wingspread. Here, you can gaze out across the harbor to Town, Nantucket Sound and Great Point. From the widows walk there are views of all three lighthouses and an amazing perspective of the island. Seeing the heart of Nantucket from your balcony brings Town closer while this setting offers a heavenly, relaxed country feel. While the house is exceptional with all the right details, the extended open arbor and wrap around deck with mature Wisteria vine is absolutely stunning. Guest suites with their own private decks, a phenomenal master and great living & entertaining spaces make 5 Wingspread the perfect family estate in a special naturalistic spot that is only 10 minutes to ‘Sconset or Town.”
BEACH Hot Property
FOR SALE: $3.150M
CAROLYN SAYS… “Come across the Madaket Land Trust conservation just before Millie’s and turn around the bend that parallels the shoreline and you’ll find one of the most beautiful sandy beaches tucked between the end of Long Pond and the ocean. Go just a little further and you arrive at 45 Starbuck… A classic beach house with an inspired and uplifting contemporary interior. Indoor and outdoor living space is seamlessly connected through multiple sets of sliding glass doors that give way to unparalleled views of the water. With four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, it is spacious for family and friends. (And in the lower level, you’ll even find a home gym!) The fabulous deck offers another 2,000 square feet of seaside peace & sunset skies while the beach beckons just .2 miles away. Front row seats await you for the most spectacular sunsets alongside the soothing sound of crashing waves.”
BONUS: CAROLYN’S TOP 3 TIPS FOR FAMILY TIME ON NANTUCKET!
CAROLYN’S SUMMER RITUAL:“We take a ride to the beach at Cathcart or Madequecham in our ’66 Bronco so our dog can have a swim while we watch the sun go down and unwind.”
CAROLYN’S NEW FAVORITE SPOT: “ Many years in real estate and running in the moors have given me an intimate map of the island, and I know where the best beaches are, but last year was the first time I got to know Nantucket by the water. We signed up with Nantucket Boating Club after becoming friendly with the owner through our son’s hockey league. What a revelation! It is magical to be on the water looking back at Nantucket.”
CAROLYN’S GO-TO SUMMER EXPERIENCE: “To me, relaxing on the patio at the end of the day with my family & friends is priceless cherished time but there are a few special things we do every summer. Get out to Moors End for strawberry picking, watch the full moon rise in Sconset from Codfish Park and sunset beach picnic at 40th pole.”
