The serene and private 10-acre Fox Island estate offers nearly 360 degree elevated views of North Bay and Dam Pond, and has as its centerpiece a masterfully designed and custom-built 5,870-square-foot home. The Cape Cod-style residence -- constructed in 1973, tastefully maintained in pristine condition -- features gracious yet intimate rooms for entertaining, activities and quiet contemplation. Its design emphasizes south-facing views and the capture of prevailing breezes. Hardwood, tile and attractively carpeted floors; multiple distinctive fireplaces; soft light emanating from a generous amount of windows and glass doors; and hand-hewn ceiling beams re-birthed from a decades-old barn create a warm, welcoming ambiance.
Nowhere is that special feeling more apparent than in the master suite with its spacious bedroom, sitting room, adjacent study and two luxurious bathrooms. The culinary center -- large country kitchen featuring Sub-zero, Jenn-Air and Thermador appliances; over 100 square foot walk-in pantry; and breakfast nook -- is convenient to the formal dining room with its fireplace and lovely view of the saltwater pool and North Bay. In addition to its primary amenities, the home hosts a full basement and two bedroom guest apartment. Fox Island is accessed via a winding scenic causeway, providing an impressive approach to this tranquil estate and nature preserve. It is a virtually unspoiled retreat honoring the delicate balance of flora, fauna and native waterways. The island has approximately 2,500 feet of salt water frontage, including an estimated 400 feet of South-facing sandy beachfront on North Bay. A seasonal deep-water dock, sheltered in Dam Pond, provides immediate access to the Three Bays and Nantucket Sound.
