Off the western tip of Nantucket, on a tapering spit of sand and sea grasses, lies a secluded family retreat. Here, a private three bedroom beach cottage with 360-degree open views to the Atlantic Ocean and Madaket Harbor provides the perfect spot to enjoy all the best of a Nantucket summer. Morning walks on a deserted beach. Afternoons under full sail.  Magical evening sunsets.  It is truly a place apart from the world. On Esther’s, there are no business meetings. No traffic. No tourists. Just sea, sun, sand, and solitude. Esther’s Island Retreat is a sustainable homesite; it sources energy needs from solar panel arrays.

Descriptions / Comments
1st Floor: Entry to this remarkable home is by an expansive waterfront deck with outdoor fireplace and incredible views to Madaket Harbor and Nantucket Sound.  A three-part glass folding door slides open to a magnificent great room with 360-degree water views, custom millwork, beautiful cathedral ceiling with arched pine beams, farmed-mahogany flooring and a hand-laid stone fireplace.  The gourmet kitchen and dining area share this space, adding soapstone counters, glass subway tiles, a large farmer's sink, and top-end appliances. From the kitchen one looks through a oceanfront sunporch with weathered cedar shingles on the interior walls and an expanse of oversized mahogany windows which provide breathtaking, unobstructed views to the Atlantic.  Adjacent to the sunporch is the master bedroom suite with shiplap walls, cathedral ceiling, private deck overlooking the harbor and an en suite bathroom complete with custom stone tile flooring and walls, an arched ceiling reminiscent of a ship's hull and access to an outdoor shower with ocean views.  At the other end of the sunporch is a second bedroom with cathedral ceiling, shiplap walls, harbor and ocean views, and a half bath with access to an oceanfront outdoor shower.  A hallway connects the second bedroom to a beautiful second master suite with expansive harbor views, cathedral ceiling, built-in desk and bookcases, mahogany flooring and bathroom with access to a private outdoor shower.

Other Structures: Designed to look like a boathouse, the shed serves dual function as a storage area for beach and boat gear as well as housing for the property's clean energy systems. Esther’s Island is not connected to an electrical power grid. Consequently, the property sources power and heat from a 5kW photovoltaic solar panel array and two flat-plate solar thermal panels. For back-up power, there is a 15kW propane generator on site.
