Expansive Estate on Nantucket Island: Squam Residence

 The Squam Residence is a custom family home recently completed by , located on Nantucket, an island 30 miles south of Cape Cod, in the American state of Massachusetts. Nantucket is at once town and country, and one of the greatest gifts it gives us is the reminder that one need not always escape completely from the urban idea to find rest and ease. Nantucket island has a set of fairly rigid design controls. You cannot build as you please on Nantucket; houses must have pitched roofs, not flat ones, and they must be covered in unpainted shingles, which weather to a soft gray once they have survived their first Nantucket winter. The rules do not require that contemporary architecture precisely duplicate the old cottages that make up the fabric of Nantucket town and the smaller settlements scattered across the 25 square miles of the island, but they clearly demand a sympathy for the island’s older architecture.

The Squam Residence carries over this traditional exterior architecture, but gives a more modern approach to it’s stunning interiors. The luxurious home is built for entertaining family and friends, with wonderful seating arrangements, a spacious kitchen open to bright living and dining areas and sliding glass doors that brings the outdoors in. Stepping out to the exterior of the home, there is a fabulous landscape surrounding the residence, offering an incredible pool with plenty of patio space and furnishings for entertaining.
