Madaket house description

'Sand Palace' is a wonderful place for a family or two to enjoy a kid friendly vacation. Relax on the open deck enjoying the Madaket Harbor view and sunsets while the kids play in the large backyard. The nearest beach with a life guard in season is a five minute bike ride or ten minute walk, and there are numerous other beaches easily available by bike, car, or shuttle bus. The frequent shuttle stops across the street from the back yard.

Since the entire island is a beach you wake up and decide whether you want surf or calm for the day. Upon returning from a beach, museum, or exploring kind of day you wash off in the enclosed outdoor shower or clean your sandy feet on the back deck, and drop your towels in the mudroom/laundry room.

From there you enter the spacious new eat in kitchen with beautiful granite counter tops and wood floor. The living room has a view of Madaket Harbor and ocean beyond and lets onto the front deck. Downstairs the master bedroom has a queen bed and TV. The downstairs guest room has a queen and single bed.

The open stairway leads upstairs to three rooms and a bathroom. The 'bunk room' has two extra long singles and a water view, while the guest room has a queen and a single also with a water view. There is also a children's play or sleep area known as 'the cloud room.'

In the evening there are games to be played on the lawn, ping-pong in the basement, sunsets to be enjoyed, beach picnics, numerous restaurants for dinner or cocktails, two movie theaters, or just board games and reading at home.

Located a ten minute drive or 20 minute bike ride on a protected bike path from 'downtown,' the house is approached from the Madaket Road but fronts on Washington Avenue which in spite of its grand name is a dirt road largely occupied by the resident rabbits.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: My husband and I call the house 'Sand Palace' named after a movie theatre in the British Virgin Islands. This is the kind of place children and grandchildren love. Lots to do, good location, water view.

              Why the Owner Chose Madaket:
              There's so much to do for all ages... we like biking and sunset watching from our deck, guests like to hike to the views from nearby open land, little kids like to catch turtles, bigger ones enjoy riding the shuttle bus or bike into town, and everyone loves the beaches. Being an island surrounded by beaches you can pretty much use any beach you can get to.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Water view, large yard for games, bike path to beach or town just across the street, shuttle to town ditto. Large unfinished basement with a ping pong table and card table available for the odd rainy day.
