Beautiful Home w/ pool overlooking Hither Creek and out over Madaket Bay to Tuckernuck and Eel point. Private, set back from road on a large lot...very private, plenty of space for the kids to play. Nicely landscaped with hedges, hydrangeas and roses. The house is furnished very upscale comfortable with a modern twist. A nice feature is one of the Queen bedrooms is on the first floor with a chaise, great for an extended family. The master is on the second floor with wonderful bay views and has a king and a sitting area with TV. The 3 other bedrooms on this floor share a full bath and have a single, a double, and a queen bed with water views. The beach and Restaurant are just a short walk from the house. Madaket is well known for spectacular sunsets... The is Shuttle across the street, easy 15min ride into Nantucket. You can get by with no car. Hither Creek is around the corner, to feed the ducks or launch a boat or kayak.
Nantucket is special in itself but to find an area like Madaket that has both ocean and bay/sound and additionally access to numerous ponds all within walking or an easy bike ride from the house, unlikely. Madaket pier/public launch is around the corner from the house giving access to the bay and sound. It is also the meeting point for fishing charters. Those 5am fishing trips mean you get up at 4:45 and walk down the road, very nice! Another convenience, directly across the street is the shuttle service which runs every 1/2hr from 8am-11pm directly to town. You could get by with no car. The Beach and the restaurant MIllies is a short walk down Madaket rd. A little further of a walk but an easy bike ride is the bay, perfect for small children, sailing, and kayaking. The Madaket beach has lifeguards on duty. There is also a small general store that supplies a little of everything, as well as a to go window from Millies restaurant for easy beach lunches. Madaket also has the crabbing pond as well as a local attraction of the fishing for turtles, all a short bike ride away and a big hit with children.
