About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 2 O/D showers,160' of decks and porches. Sleeps 8
This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home was designed with your needs in mind. Two master suites make it perfect for two families or one family with in-laws or two couples.
LOST AT SEA has an upside-down layout with water views through the trees from the open kitchen/dining/living area and 48' mahogany deck...
The first floor opens to a foyer with sliding glass door to the den. The den includes large sectional sofa and built-in wall cabinets housing 42' flat-screen TV and VCR/DVD player. The adjacent hallway leads to 3 bedrooms including master suite w/king and 2 bedrooms with 2 twins each. There are also two full baths(one tub/one shower) and a laundry with access to the back deck. The lower back deck provides two large outdoor showers with changing areas and sitting areas looking out to lawn, garden and neighboring conservation land. The exterior offers over 1300 square feet of mahogany porch and decking. The 64' front porch is furnished with a porch swing and two sets of wicker. This porch captures the late day sun and is a favorite gathering spot after a day at the beach and outdoor showers. The lawn area around the house is extensive, bordered by gardens and woodlands,and the front and back yards are ideal for kids to play.
The second floor is washed in sunshine with an open kitchen, dining and livingroom facing south toward conservation land and the shoreline...which can be both seen and heard. French doors lead to a 48' mahogany deck designed for dining/entertaining...built-in gas grill, 8' dining table and benches, red cedar glider, and steamer chaises. There are water views through the treetops from kitchen/dining/living room and deck... The second floor also includes a powder room, home office with 32' flat-screen and wi-fi throughout the house. The second floor master suite with king bed and master bath with jacuzzi completes the second floor.
The third floor is a large open space with lots of dormers and window seats along with twin beds. The captain's ladder leads to the roof walk with fabulous 360 degree views with 180 degrees of the South shore. The roof walk has a large cocktail table and four comfortable butterfly chairs- perfect for coffee or cocktails, reading, sunbathing and sunrises/sunsets.
LOST AT SEA is located at the end of S Shore Rd on over two wooded acres. Facing South the property is bordered by Land Bank land with wooded trails opening to moors to the beach. Facing north there are views of horse stables and beautifully landscaped homes. There are two different walks to the beach (10 minutes vs 15 minutes) and it is just over two miles to the heart of downtown. A bike path on S Shore Rd, across the street, connects to the island-wide bike path system.
Lost at Sea is landscaped with dozens of flowering hydrangeas and lots of climbing roses on the west and southern elevations. The property also has a large, beautiful lawn great for throwing a ball or frisbee.
September and October are beautiful months in Nantucket. The weather is usually peerless and the surf is warm. The beaches are empty , but those hard-to-get-into restaurants during summer are open and relaxed.
It is perfect weather for golf, fishing, running, walking the moors, or sitting on the beach with a book. On October 12th, the beautiful private 18 golf course at Sankaty opens to the public.
Through mid-October Nantucket has some of the best sport fishing in the world! Stripers, Blues, False Albacore, and Spanish Mackerel are all accessible from the beach if you have four wheel drive. Offshore, Yellow and Blue-fin tuna are fished from the waters by local charter boats.
During the peak season of summer we have Thursday turnovers which our guests have loved. Firstly, you can book ferry reservations more handily, most importantly you avoid the insane Cape Cod weekend traffic, and most enjoyably, Friday, Saturday and Sunday you are sitting pretty on the beach with your dinner reservations secured while downtown is teeming with daytrippers and boatloads of people coming and going!
We believe you, too, will find LOST AT SEA a luxurious oasis on the south shore that could be your Nantucket home away from home.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband and I, originally from northern Michigan, moved after 10 years in New York City to the Berkshires in western MA. We fell in love with Nantucket upon our first visit in 1993...the hydrangeas and climbing roses, those grey-shingled houses, the amazing whaling history and the beautiful beaches. We even loved the fog! We have been coming to the island with our 3 boys ever since. My husband is a Landscape Architect and I am an Interior Designer and avid gardener. Designing this house, with you the renter in mind, was one of the most gratifying projects in our lives. What fun we have toiling during our always-too-brief visits to the island but we always leave time for the beach, biking, snooping around the island with our boys, a glass of wine on the upper deck or front porch, and the mandatory lobster dinner!
Why the Owner Chose Nantucket, MA, USA:
We bought this 2.25 parcel of land in 2000 because it abutted preserved Land Bank Land, was so close to the beach and yet was just a few miles to town. We rented a 'high-low' to site the house and confirm our suspicion that there were lovely water views from the second floor! Finally, in 2004 we were able to build Lost at Sea. The first time we ascended up to the widow's walk and stood looking at the 180 degree shoreline it was proclaimed that 'this was the reason for this house'! Lost at Sea was sited to give you the most direct view to the shoreline and maximize privacy. The house itself was designed to flow for our renters. Two outdoor showers lead into the laundry room, which is opposite a bathroom-minimizing the sand and maximizing the convenience. All of the rooms have windows opposite their hallway door and neighbor's door to provide wonderful cross-ventilation. The kitchen windows over the sink open to a potting table doubling as a 'buffet station', to ease the flow of food and drinks inside and out. The gas grill is connected to a buried tank so that no one has the inconvenience of running out of gas or lugging gas tanks. I could go on and on...all of these things were designed with our guests in mind. Enjoy!
