Assertive and elegant, 13 Primrose Lane looks out over almost two acres of lush lawns, beautiful plantings, and vistas of Dionis. This premier property is highlighted by a range of amenities that put it at the top of Nantucket’s exclusive market. The main house is gracious and formal, with four large en suite bedrooms, two of which have fire places. The master is grand in scale, and includes one of those fireplaces. It’s accompanying bathroom gleams with white marble. There are four living areas, one of which is comfortably formal incorporating a fireplace and access to one of the several outdoor living areas. Also, on this level is a large study with built in cabinetry and glass doors allowing it to be closed off from the rest of the house. The kitchen and dining area adjoin each other and a relaxing living area. Here, there is another fireplace. The lower level of the home features a two-bay garage, and at its back, a separate studio with built-in work benches, and lots of storage. This level is 1600 sq ft and would be an ideal artist’s work shop, catering kitchen, or gym. Lots of possibilities here. The grounds surrounding the home are substantial and feature a large in-ground heated pool and spa surrounded by extensive bluestone flatwork. There is a fire pit and an arbor for summertime roses. Many private sitting areas are dotted around the property. Additionally, there is back-up generator in case of power failure, and a separately fenced and irrigated vegetable garden. The guest house is of equal quality to the main house. It has an open concept living and dining area which flows into the large kitchen. Three upstairs bedrooms are spacious and all have en suite baths. The basement is full-height and could be transformed into additional living space.
First Floor Description:
From the shell driveway, past the stacked stone retaining walls and up a few steps is a deep, covered wrap-around porch offering views out over Dionis. The formal entry incorporates a sitting area with french doors opening out to one of several outdoor living areas. This entry acts as an axis around which the main living areas of the home circulate. To the left is a large formal living area with fireplace, and a private study which can be closed off from the rest of the home. To the right is another, more casual sitting area and fireplace. Adjoining this are the dining area, white marbled kitchen, mud room, laundry room, and half-bath. All areas are wired for music, and are filled with light.
Second Floor Description:
From the upper landing, the second floor opens up to a large sunny living area with built-in media center and access to a large deck overlooking the rear of the property. All four bedrooms radiate from this central space, with the master being at the north end of the home with a fireplace, and private deck overlooking the pool, fire pit, and outdoor living areas. The scale of the room is in keeping with the self assured nature of the property; grand and elegant. The master bath, again, confident and impressive, provides an over-sized double shower, soaking tub, private bidet, and shining white marble. All of the additional bedrooms have en suite baths, and overlook the beautiful lawns, gardens, and vistas of Dionis.
The basement is unique, and has far more to offer than is typical. Since this property sits on a sloping grade, the shell driveway leads, in part, directly to the basement level of the main house. Two doors give access to a double-bay garage that can allow three parked cars when two are parked in tandem. Behind this space is an enclosed, segregated work area with built-in work benches, utility sink and a great deal of storage. This has a great deal of potential: art studio, catering kitchen…many possibilities. Over 1600 sq ft of space.
The 1800 sq ft cottage has three 2nd floor bedrooms each with an en suite bath. It is located sufficiently far from the main house to maintain privacy. The rear yard is large, private and manicured. The main floor is an open concept living, dining, and kitchen plan, with a sunny sitting room that can be closed off. The structure is alarmed, has irrigation, and plenty of parking. There is a full basement, primarily unfinished, but with high ceilings and ample space that could easily be incorporated into the home as additional living space, or great media/game room.
2-Bay garage at main house (can fit 3 cars if two are in tandem)
