Looking for a home on Nantucket with a beach path? Here's a fantastic choice : an immaculate 5BR/5BA Residence in Dionis ... on the northside, and one of the island's most peaceful, valuable, and highly sought-after locations ... plus, an easy walk or bike into Town. This home is beautifully positioned on almost 2 acres ... even better -- there's a backyard Beach Path, which provides a 2-minute walk from the back door to one of Nantucket's most quiet beaches -- it's always uncrowded and relaxing here, even at the height of the summer season. The views are spectacular : across the ocean to the north, and across the Loring Foundation Preserve to the southwest. The home was designed by award-winning architect Lisa Botticelli of Botticelli and Pohl. The floor plan includes 2 large Master Bedroom Suites (one MBR Suite on the first floor plus one MBR Suite on the upper level), each with its own fireplace, and, french doors to a private covered deck. The lower MBR Suite has a separate front porch entrance (great when you have guests). A pool plan with outdoor kitchen has been approved by HDC and is valid through Jan 2020. Plus, there's plenty of ground coverage available for a future Guest House + Garage if desired (septic system is built and certified for 8 Bedrooms, it presently serves only 5 Bedrooms). Acquisition of the abutting portion of Alliance Lane is pending via the Town 'Yard Sale' program, and is included in the sale of this property. Access to the beach via the backyard Beach Path is guaranteed by a perpetual easement. Lawns and beds are fully sprinklered. Home has been recently updated and is in true move-in condition -- needs absolutely nothing, and is ready to be enjoyed by new owners. An excellent turn-key choice for those who prefer not to have to spend a couple seasons building. Request a Brochure for floor plans, plot plan, pool plan, photo gallery and much more info. Shown by appointment. An absolute must-see -- extremely well-located, spectacular views, immaculate condition ... and a backyard beach path! A fantastic property.

Dionis, situated on the North shore to the west of town, is a great area for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of town and mid-island. Dionis vacation rentals are popular with families and those who like to relax all day at the beach. Many of the rental homes in this area are large and have expansive yards that are great for family fun, cookouts, and stargazing. Along Eel Point Road as you are heading west through Dionis, there are a few beach access roads that give way to beautiful white sand beaches. The first beach is aptly named Dionis Beach, and has a small parking lot with restroom facilities and vending machines. A short, shell-lined path leads to a lifeguarded area that is great for little ones. The water is warm and shallow and like other north shore beaches, often sees a sandbar with the ebbing tide. A little over a mile further down and onto the dirt part of Eel Point Road is a beach called 40th Pole. With an Over Sand Permit, four-wheel drive vehicles can drive up a soft, sandy road through a break in the dunes and emerge onto a wide beach. The best way to enjoy this beach is to arrive mid morning and set up camp with chairs, umbrellas, blankets, and beach games. Break out the coolers and grills in the afternoon and cook up lunch while enjoying an ice cold beverage. Wait till other beachgoers leave later in the day and take a few evening casts for bluefish or bass.


If you’re looking to connect with nature in other ways, Dionis has some great hiking trails. Also on Eel Point Road is the Linda Loring Nature Foundation, which owns over 80 acres of land adjacent to the head of Long Pond. Along the mile-long hiking trail, you can observe numerous plant and animal species, some of which are endangered. Family and children’s workshops are offered in the summertime as well.


Dionis is a great spot that is far enough removed from busier island areas, but doesn’t take forever to get to. Renting or owning a home in Dionis means peace, quiet, and beautiful sunsets. On a clear day, you can even see Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.
