Listing of the Day
Location: Nantucket, Massachusetts
Price: $32.75 Million
Nantucket is known for its scenic shore, classic lighthouses and old-world atmosphere, highlighted by the largest concentration of pre-Civil War homes in the United States, spread throughout the intimate island getaway. Yet, the charming simplicity evoked by the island’s relaxed pace doesn’t mean it is lacking in modern amenities–– far from it, in fact, as Acklandia, the compound on Pocomo Road demonstrates.
“Acklandia is the ultimate waterfront compound with dramatic 300-degree views of Nantucket Harbor, iconic Great Point Lighthouse and Nantucket Town on the horizon,” said co-listing agent Bernadette Meyer of Maury People Sotheby’s International Realty.
Ideal for entertaining and large family gatherings, Ms. Meyer added that the massive compound also includes “an entertainment pavilion with a commercial kitchen, 3,500-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a pool, tennis court, workout room, car storage, guest quarters, staff quarters, and private beach stairs.”
Visually, the home is a treat too. Designed in a classic revival shingle style, the property features a cascade of tonally muted shingles on the exterior and summery colors alongside exposed wood beams throughout the wide-open interiors. Add to all this the large windows and massive deck opening up to the surrounding, painterly vista, and you have the perfect summer getaway.
Spanning a 6.7-acre lot, the 6,847-square-foot compound includes a total of seven bedrooms and eight full and two partial bathrooms, spread out between the main house, studio, cottage, pavilion and guest house. There’s even a six-car separate garage.
Nantucket offers a variety of fun, local activities alongside its remarkable natural amenities. Only 15 minutes by boat from the beachside compound, the island’s historic downtown area offers plenty of shopping, fine-dining and culture on delightful cobblestone roads.

“The property is designed with everything you can dream of to get away from it all,” Ms. Meyer said. In addition to the aforementioned wine cellar, tasting room, pool, tennis court, and workout room, the property also includes a personal bar and in-house movie theater.
