From the Zillow listing:


Offering extraordinary views from the best location in Monomoy, “Longevity” has been in the same family since 1949. Sited on a knoll high above the water line, this exclusive 1.25 acre waterfront property features a seven bedroom, 6.5 bath main house, an oversized two car garage with living quarters above and a boat house. The property is highlighted by its incomparable views of the entire Nantucket Harbor including stunning vistas across the harbor from Town to Brant Point to Coatue. The property’s northwest orientation allows for unobstructed views of fabulous sunsets, the vibrant activity of the harbor boat scene, as well as providing front row viewing of the various firework displays throughout the season. There is approximately 175′ of water frontage with a gently sloping path/driveway to the water and a private sandy beach along the shore. The secluded beach provides access to the harbor for the enjoyment of water sports activities, including boating, swimming, sunbathing, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. The grandfathered 224 sf boat house sits down by the shoreline. An updated survey shows the location of house, garage and boathouse as well as the proposed 16’x25′ pool and 500sf pool house. The owner recently obtained the Notice of Intent (NOI) approval from ConCom for the pool and pool house. Key features of this beautiful property are its elevated setting, the grandfathered status of the siting of the structures and the height of the main house. EXCLUSIONS: Dining Room chandelier light fixture; all “LONGEVITY” signs and quarter boards.
