MAJOR REMODEL AND EXPANSION, led by Nantucket's top architecture firm, BPC Architects. WE HAVE A COMFORTABLE, LUXURIOUS, FUN, FAMILY-FRIENDLY, MODERN BEACH HOUSE WITH A BEAUTIFUL POOL AND CABANA. The six decks and porches, blue stone patios and the cabana make the outdoor living spaces as comfortable, inviting and luxurious as the all new indoor spaces.

Top of the line kitchen with SubZero, Dacor and Asko appliances, custom cabinets and state of the art Dekton stone countertops. All four bedrooms in the main house have en suite Carrera marble bathrooms with rain head and hand held showers.

The swimming pool is a 40 by 16 foot salt-water heated pool with stairs across one end for easy entry and tanning. The cabana includes a five seat bar with Scottsman ice machine, stainless steel slide top bar refrigerator, sink, margarita machine and a four burner Weber grill. Also in the cabana is a great room, play loft, two outdoor showers with Wondershower fixtures, bathroom, and a second LG high-efficiency washer/dryer for towels. Nanny suite above the carriage house features a king bed and 40 inch flat screen TV. Near the cabana is gas fire pit to take the edge off the evening breezes surrounded by Adirondack chairs. Along with the pool and cabana, there's a large, flat and green grassy yard for young and old to enjoy. The back yard is fenced. The entire property is very private with mature privet hedges and trees as well as hydrangeas everywhere you look.

Central air conditioning throughout plus three high-end and totally silent Haiku ceiling fans keep your family cool. The study off the living room comes in handy for those times on vacation when you need to make a conference call or just a moment away. The study has a desk, highest speed wi-fi and ink jet printer. There's also a game table for puzzles or cards and a deck overlooking the pool. Four wifi extenders provide internet coverage across the entire property. Sonos sound system with 22 speakers in house, decks and cabana allows music for every occasion.

In addition to the double outdoor shower in the cabana, there is a private outdoor Master shower grotto with Speakman sprayers accessed directly from the Master bath. That same deck holds two chaise lounges in a very private side yard for escape and relaxation. The Master bath has Waterworks fixtures in the sink and shower and white marble.

Of course for rainy days, there are seven large flat screen Samsung HD TVs with Netflix, Hulu and Apple TV. The loft in the house is equipped with an Xbox One, a day bed and trundle. The loft in the cabana has two single mattresses for sleeping or getting away and reading a book.

Ocean views from the upper living floor. You can hear the ocean at night in all four spacious bedrooms. The gardens bloom throughout the summer with hundreds of blue hydrangea, climbing roses and decorative grasses.

Six new mahogany outdoor decks and covered porches offer a great place to relax in the ocean breeze and grill your steak from Bartlett's Farm. Star-gazing at night is amazing with clarity like no place else. Easy bike, walk or drive to town and close to Surfside bus stop.

Friday to Friday rentals in prime season. Multi-week rentals will be given priority. Rate is $20k per week.

Well trained dogs considered.

About Kent Knutson

We purchased this house in Surfside in Spring 2013 and completed renovations summer 2014. We've been coming to Nantucket for ten years. Summer without Nantucket just isn't summer. No one ever wants to go back to the real world after a couple weeks at Gladsheim.

Kent Knutson purchased this House in 2013

Why Kent Knutson chose Nantucket Island

There's no better beaches on Nantucket than Surfside, Fisherman's and Nobadeer which are all very close. The kids walk or bike to the beach with their boogie boards. It's easy to take our labrador to the beach to run in the morning. We love our sunny days at the beach, and s'mores by a fire at sunset. There's nothing better than listening to the waves at night. Surfside gives privacy, close beaches and a quick drive to town for shopping and restaurants. Lots of unique spaces through the property for family togetherness with the ability to find a quiet spot to get away as well. We love sitting on the pool deck with a glass of wine and cheeses from Barlett's farm watching the kids and their friends play in the pool -- or catching a nap on the couch in the cabana in the afternoon.

What makes this House unique

Very private property, close to beach at the end of a sandy lane. Top of the line finishes, a new saltwater pool and all the amenities beautifully maintained to make time on Nantucket a great memory for years and years.

                                                              This home is one of the best rentals we've seen in Nantucket. Still brand new and finishing touches are plenty. A quick, easy walk to the beach: Stone's Beach for convenience (no lifeguard). Surfside Beach for excitement (and lifeguards). This is a fun house and yard layout. You can easily hear the ocean from the master bedroom and front porches. I would recommend for families with children ages 6 or 7 and up. Our dog was welcome too. Wonderful owners and staff.

                                                              Wonderful family home close to the beach

                                                              This home is as comfortable as can be with a great yard for my kids to play in, and four bedrooms and baths. We arrived and met Jim the caretaker, a New Englander who has lived on the island for more than 20 years now, and a welcome letter with a bottle of the owners wine.

                                                              the house has the living space upstairs, with gorgeous ocean views and the bedrooms downstairs, We sat on the deck watching the sunset, enjoying our wine and waited for our dinner to warm. The kitchen is modern with all the conveniences of home. We started a fire as the air cooled at nightfall and enjoyed a meal with the crackle of a fire.

                                                              The sunset lingered for quite a while and then the stars came out! what an incredible show. I cant wait to go back!

                                                              Gladsheim is four houses (a short 200 yard walk) away from the one of the biggest, sandiest and best beaches on the Island. It is close enough that you can run up from the beach for sandwiches or to grab the wine for a sunset toast on the beach. It is also close to town, the bike path, the bus stop, Miacomet Golf, tennis and great shopping. Three large decks on the upper living level look to the beach, sunrise, sunset, the pool, and the hydrangea filled-yard. Deck near kitchen has six person dining table with umbrella, and Weber gas grill looking out to the ocean. Watch your kids play wiffleball on the lawn or pool while you catch the sunset. You can see the ocean down the path and listen to the waves break from your bed!
