Located in close proximity to the shops, galleries, and restaurants of the town of Nantucket, this home was completely and masterfully renovated in 2013. Spearheading the project was island-based BPC Architecture Founding Principal Joe Paul, who worked closely with the owners to realize their vision of creating a sophisticated retreat that would serve to showcase their significant collection of contemporary art while also being an inviting and welcoming gathering place for their family and friends. The floor plan - a living area with fireplace, dining area, and kitchen (which looks out over a private stone patio complete with a gas fire pit) - is open to the second floor and is flooded with natural light. A serene color palette of neutral hues and high gloss surfaces are complimented by organic textured fabrics and wallcoverings, adding a layer of visual interest to the scheme. Design elements, including contemporary light fixtures and accent pieces are elegant, mod, and timeless. In addition to all new systems, the home is equipped with Sonos and Nest. It is offered for sale furnished/turnkey with a list of excluded items (primarily artwork, personal effects, and gym equipment) available upon request.
First Floor Description:
The radiant heat floor is poured concrete topped with a high-gloss epoxy. Every detail - from the bespoke lighting to the suspended coat rack - has been carefully considered and is a purposeful component of the overall design scheme. A seating area around a gas fireplace invites relaxation. Dining is adjacent to the kitchen, which has European cabinetry, slate countertops, and Miele, Wolf, and Subzero appliances. Doors open to a stone patio custom designed by Boston-based Zen Associates, Inc. and features a fire pit and free form stones that are used as perky stools or tables for coffee or cocktails. Three bedrooms are on the first floor: one with a private bath, two share a Jack and Jill.
Second Floor Description:
In a clever visual play, the stainless-steel stairway widens as it rises to the second floor; the catwalk mirrors this by narrowing on the receding end. A sitting area at the landing is flooded with natural light, and overlooks the leafy neighborhood. A pair of trundle beds across the open space are convenient for extra house guests. The master suite has a dramatic bath, anchored by a central, Philippe Starck-designed free-standing shower with a boat deck drainage plane to catch run-off. There is a sizable walk-in closet and several additional areas for storage. The master bedroom has a private deck.
Poured concrete floor, new with the renovation. Equipped with built-in shelves for storage and an industrial-grade de-humidifier.
The attached shed is quipped with a GarageTek storage system to organize stored items and easily mount bicycles and other items.
