Athearn House is an exquisite eighteenth century house, in mint condition, with modern additions and 21st century comforts. It is set in three park-like upland acres on a very private waterfront estate with its own 300' sandy beach on Nantucket Sound. The beach has a gently sloping, firm, sandy bottom, ideal for swimming and boating by all ages. Ownership runs to the low water line, most unusual anywhere in the world.
While the distance to Edgartown village is under a mile, the property is secluded at the end of a scenic private country lane. The place is a wonderful introduction to summer seaside life for children of all ages, including the very young, a magical paradise, and an investment in memories to be passed on to future generations.
Between the main house and the guest house, there are eleven bedrooms, ten with water views, and each with a distinctive character of its own, eight baths, six with water views, a spacious outdoor shower and changing room looking out over the seascape, and a four car garage.
A sixteen by thirty-four foot swimming pool, built in 2011, also has sweeping views of Nantucket Sound, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area.
There is room on the grounds for an additional building and perhaps a tennis court.
