About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1/2 bath, 2 outdoor showers, sleeps 8

This is one of the most magnificent properties on the south shore of the island. If you want to get away from it all, this is it! Our home sits on 3 magnificent landscaped acres with stone walls, a long shell driveway, and a circular brick parking area. It abuts hundreds of acres of conservation land. The UNOBSTRUCTED view from the upstairs great room is of the Madaquecham Valley and Ocean.

New for the 2011 season, we have a large (60ft X 18 ft) heated custom pool suitable for laps or recreational swim, with an automatic safety cover, pool house, AND tennis court!

The house was completely redone in 2008.

Downstairs are 4 bedrooms, nicely furnished in summer cottage style. There are also 2 new full baths with brand new fixtures, slate floors, a clean white subway tiled shower in one, and a bathtub/shower in the other. There is also a nice laundry/mudroom with it's own separate entrance from the side of the house. Outside is a new and spacious outdoor show

Upstairs is a great room with soaring ceilings, a brand new Woodmode kitchen with granite counters, a peninsula and eating island. The decor upstairs is summer cottage style, with beautiful antique English Pine casement goods, cozy slip covered coaches, craftsman style woodwork, and top of the line oil-rubbed bronze lighting fixtures and ceiling fan.

The inside of the house is freshly painted in a soft French vanilla with white accents. Crisp white sheer curtains sway in the ocean breeze. Throughout the house are newly refinished pine floors. A French door leads to a south facing deck with stunning views, plus a large outdoor wicker dining set and gas grill. On the lower deck is an outdoor wicker grouping consisting of a love seat, chair and ottoman, and coffee table, with ivory cushions.

The ocean breezes keep you very comfortable, but should you want it, the entire house has central air-conditioning.

The pool cabana's kitchenette is equipped with a farm sink, under-counter refrigerator, beverage center, ice maker, microwave, and blender. There is a stunning mahogany counter with a marine finish and five bar stools, perfect for serving snacks and drinks poolside. Adjacent to the cabana is a shaded brick patio with an outdoor wicker round table,chairs, and gas grill. In the back of the cabana is a changing room, bathroom, and outdoor shower, all conveniently located by the pool.

About Owner/Manager Debbie

Our names are Debbie and Ed. When we were first dating, many years ago, we vacationed on Cape Cod. Who would have dreamed that one day we would have our own summer home on the beautiful island of Nantucket, 30 miles off shore from Cape Cod. We purchased our first home on Nantucket in 1999. 10 wonderful summers were spent in that house. More recently, we purchased and completely renovated this property. We work hard most of the year, and look forward to our time on Nantucket where we can spend quality time with each other and our three daughters.

Owner/Manager Debbie purchased this house in 2007

Why Owner/Manager Debbie chose Nantucket

We love Madequecham. It is the perfect get away. We think we have one of the nicest beaches on the island in our backyard. A few years ago, an article appeared in The Wall Street Journal naming the author's 10 favorite beaches in the world, and Madequecham made the list! We agree. The property our home sits on is a one of a kind. We feel very lucky.

What makes this house unique

Staying in this home is so relaxing. It is comfortable, warm, cozy, and very pretty, with all the modern amenities, but maintaining that unique Nantucket feeling. A true find! Please don't be concerned about the proximity of our area to the airport-we do not have a problem with air plane noise. We also do not have a problem with mosquitoes! We love to run on the magnificent paths through the conservation land surrounding our home. I especially love running through the path which bisects the Mellon Estate. Another favorite activity of ours is taking our bikes on the Milestone Rd bike path, circling around to the Polpis bike path, and stopping in Sconset for an ice cream or lunch, before heading back. You can afford to eat an icecream when you just biked 17 miles! (or you can take the short way to Sconset, which is only 3 miles) Our beach is amazing. It is almost never crowded. Even in the height of the summer, you can always find a spot to sit away from everyone else if that's what you prefer. We love sitting on the beach until sunset, followed by stargazing on one of the clearest skies we have ever seen. I still can't believe it when I come home at night and see the milky way, and if I catch it right, shooting stars!

Our family was so excited to have our own pool and tennis court starting in 2011. It is a dream come true for us. I love to swim laps, and my husband is an avid tennis player. My girls can't wait for their summer vacation next year. We hope you will chose to spend your summer vacation in our little piece of paradise next year as well.

Pool and Pastoral Views

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity is a lovely and calming place to spend some time with family and friends. We spent most days relaxing in the gigantic pool with sensational views of conservation land. The tennis court was a huge draw as well, and many family tournaments ensued. The beds were extremely comfortable with luxury linens and the kitchen is well equipped for a high-end meal. The best part is the owners - our family has been going to Nantucket for more than 20 years and these owners are at the top of the list in terms of responsiveness, pleasantness and attention-to-detail. The bike ride to Tom Nevers on New South Road was a highlight and we highly recommend a SUV or similar for the nearby dirt roads. Lastly, the home is close enough to the ocean where mosquitoes don't come by, but far enough that the wind isn't blowing everything out of place. You'll have a great time.

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This beautiful & tranquil home was more than just a home, it was a major player in our vacation. The birds singing in the morning, the kids getting herbs from the garden, toasting marshmallows in the fire pit, hosting a bridal luncheon by the pool. This home gave us a life memory...thank you, Debbie

Five stars

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. Everything was as advertised. House, pool and tennis courts were great. Everything very clean. Easy access to fantastic beaches. Very private. Importantly, Debbie (owner) provided great customer service. She was incredibly responsive and very helpful with dinner and activity recommendations. Really can't say enough good things. Our whole family had a great time (3 kids, ages 18, 15 and 5).

We loved the house and the property. The pool was amazing with a great pool house. The tennis court was in great condition and my kids loved playing in the yard and making s'mores in the fire pit. I can't say enough great things about this property.

Beautiful property offering outdoor enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

In Madequecham, surrounded by conservation lands, we were sheltered from the August Nantucket crowds. We shared the nearby beach with no more than a handful of others and enjoyed the refreshing ocean. The beach is a fifteen to twenty minute bike ride from the house. One could drive in less time but it would be wise to have a four wheel drive vehicle for the soft sandy roads. Mostly we spent time at the beautiful private salt water pool. It is an ideal size for swimming laps or for relaxing in one of the inner tubes provided. Around the pool is a delightful bar area, perfect for cocktails or outdoor dining. The large rectangular yard is perfect for playing soccer, croquet, or other outdoor sports and the tennis court adds another sports option. Most evenings we enjoyed dinner on the upstairs deck with expansive views of the sky and distant ocean. The living room is comfortable and provided with a large screen TV and lots of board games. We appreciated the ample kitchen for preparing meals and the large washer dryer for loads of towels. The house has two beautiful, roomy outdoor showers which provide the best place for bathing. Guests should be aware that the bedrooms are nice but quite small. Quality grocery and seafood stores are conveniently within a ten to fifteen minute drive. If you are one who appreciates natural beauty and being out-of-doors this house is a lovely option.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful review and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay. Just to clarify-our deeded beach is 1/3 of a mile from our property "as the crow flies", and is a 1/2 mile walk/bike ride/drive along a sandy road that traverses the conservation land between our block and the beach. We recommend driving when carrying beach chairs, towels, and snacks. There is a cleared area for parking adjacent to the beach.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the house. My kids enjoyed the pool. The pool was new and nicely maintained. The tennis court was a plus to hit a few balls. Debbie was great and easy to work with. The house is comfortable and very clean. The upstairs family room kitchen area is light and nice to hang out in. The location is a short drive to the beach. Overall really fun time.
