Breathtaking views of the horizon, sunrise and sunsets, invigorating fresh air, and the stunning sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean surf embrace your every moment at the magnificent and unique Whales Watch Estate! Our 6000 sq ft, six (6) bedroom /4 bath architecturally designed and custom appointed Nantucket 'upside down' home is perched on six private landscaped acres overlooking the open Atlantic Ocean and miles of sandy beach on the southeast tip of the island - just 7 minutes from the center of Town and convenient to everything Nantucket has to offer.
Upon entering through one of six ground floor entrances of this handsome home, you will find a central hallway connecting six large and inviting custom appointed bedrooms, three custom tiled full bathrooms with new towels in all sizes, laundry room with double sets of Duet washers and dryers, and an outside wrap around lower deck with steps directly to the front lawn. Three bedrooms are directly oceanfront. Four of the six bedrooms have private entrances and ocean views! All bedrooms feature custom window treatments, new bed linens, and new mattresses. The master bedroom is en suite with two levels, fireplace, wall-mounted TV w/DVD, lower level sitting area and private custom marble and tile bath with his n' her vanity and custom built, over-sized glass enclosed walk-in shower.
The second floor boasts open beam, cedar-paneled cathedral ceilings with paddle fans overhead in all three upstairs rooms including a fully outfitted gourmet chef's kitchen, adjacent to a beautifully furnished open living room with fireplace and an entertainment center, through french doors to a fully furnished separate Great Room with a massive stone fireplace, 60' wall mounted flat screen TV, handsome bar with custom bar stools, and a guest half bath. Step out onto the second floor wrap around deck is accessed from 4 glass sliders with seating for 24 and a large gas grill.
One cannot help be entranced by the amazing one-of-a-kind vista which fills your every glance day or night! Watch deer run on the beach at dusk, seals come to call on their morning swim, and if you're lucky enough... whales spouting by in their season...
The grounds of this sanctuary await your barefoot trek with manicured lawns, gorgeous flowering hydrangea, roses, lilies and numerous perennial gardens dotting the landscape and bordering the entire six acre property. Teak furniture on the lawn invites you to sit and relax, or take an outside shower and find your way to miles and miles of soft sandy beach for your heart's delight on the private walkway named 'Walters Bench' so named after the late Walter Elliott who built the stairway and companion seating with grandson, Robert M. Elliott II, and his son, Robert M. Elliott, the property owner who also built this house lovingly named Whales Watch One.
This unique and special one-of-a-kind oceanfront property is ideal for a family vacation, reunion, business or church retreat, weddings, anniversaries, birthday events, or for any reason you can think of! Come and see for yourself!
