Currently the only opportunity to rent a home in Summer Islands, a secluded island surrounded by acres of green and golden marsh savannas and reached solely by way of a charming wooden bridge, this home guarantees the utmost privacy. As Bass Creek winds through the marsh, the landscape is continuously changing directed by the gentle ebb and flow of the tides. The home’s two-tiered dock is the perfect place to enjoy the view, fish, crab, kayak, or contact Bohicket Marina to have them pick you up for a chartered boat tour/fishing excursion. Unfortunately it is too shallow during low tide to keep a boat docked permanently but you can rent slips at nearby Bohicket Marina, they can help with tide charts and maps as well!
Wheeler Kearns designed this 4,650 square-foot residence to blend beautifully with its natural surroundings and create balance and symmetry within the home. A brick courtyard with iron gate, pool, and spa provides a unique entrance and sets the tone for the home. Featuring hardwood flooring, 11-foot ceilings with exposed beams, and access to the outdoor living spaces, the thoughtfully planned interior spaces are ideal for entertaining or relaxing with a view.
French doors topped with transoms line either side of the living room, with the south-facing opening to the screened porch overlooking marsh and the other offering access to the courtyard and pool(pool can be heated for additional $125 per day, 4 day minimum, 48 hours notice to turn on heater is required, spa heat is included). A granite-surround fireplace, purposefully placed in the center of the room, anchors the space.
Outfitted with granite countertops and custom cabinetry, the kitchen features a six-burner Viking cooktop and Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers. The adjacent breakfast room has a built-in beadboard bench and access to the screened porch. A formal dining room, located away from the main living areas for added privacy, can accommodate a crowd.
The master suite with marsh views, porch access, and walk-in closet adjoins a contemporary slate bathroom with his-and-hers decorative sinks, steam shower, and soaking tub.
