Driving Directions




“Swain’s Neck” encompasses over 63 acres of lush grasslands, wetlands and forests, enhanced by picturesque panoramas and salty sea breezes.  This idyllic, remote and tranquil setting is potentially Nantucket’s most private family retreat.  The estate’s winding private driveway gradually reveals a natural wonderment of leas, trees and fenced horse pastures as it approaches the main residence far out on the peninsula and surrounded by water and manicured grounds.  The home is arranged in a C-shape that follows the curve of the shoreline and offers ocean and Polpis Harbor views from all principal rooms.  The architecture features many symbols of Nantucket’s Quaker, Colonial, farming and whaling heritage: weathered wood shingles, multiple gables and dormers, farmer’s porches at most entrances, porthole-like oculi and an overall farmhouse-like simplicity in design.  The main residence is centered around a two-story great room.   The open floor plan is designed to promote a casual and relaxing lifestyle for the family and its guests.  The home has approximately 8,000sf and comprises five bedroom suites, including the first-floor master with its sitting room and deck, all with harbor views.  Guests will enjoy the privacy of the two-bedroom/two-bathroom guest cottage with its large open plan kitchen, dining, and living room, and its screened-in porch.  A separate studio features an octagonal turret recalling the lighthouses of Massachusetts’ maritime history.  Possibilities for the studio are at the buyer’s choice: a home office, media center, fitness/yoga studio or additional guest accommodation.  Vast lawns to the rear of the main house provide a smooth transition to the private shore’s sandy walking trail.  At the water’s edge, a shingled waterfront “boat-house” has a screened sun porch for al fresco dining and admiring the breathtaking sandbar and ocean views.  The estate’s gatehouse, with its cupola and weathervane, provides a two-bedroom caretakers’ apartment and a large equipment storage barn.  Two moorings complete this rare offering.
