Here’s your post-quarantine game plan: Move into this mini utopia on Nantucket Island. Owned by Blue Flag Partners, the newly designed collection of 17 homes shares three acres of park, which includes amenities such as a gym, an open air cabana, an in-ground pool, a hot tub, and a Bali-style outdoor shower. It’s like having all the bells and whistles of a luxury condo building, while also spreading out in your own single-family. How to get from your house to the suite of spa-like facilities? Natural walking paths, blended with three kinds of grasses, lead directly from each home down to the pool area.

As you approach this particular home, dubbed “the barn”, you likely glean where its moniker came from. The simple gable shape, wood shingle siding, and two-story barn doors affixed to the back of the home are part of what the developers call a “modern interpretation of a barn.” The look translates inside, too, with an open tread staircase supported by flattened forged iron balusters and a thick timber frame that towers into the second story. Upstairs, a ladder leads up to a small loft where instead of stashing hay, you can partake in a post-swim cat nap, or curl up with a nice summer read.

The open kitchen, dining, and living room are a pleasant mishmash of industrial-cool and barn-inspired choices: Rectangles of white oak break up the vast white ceilings into distinct zones, a herringbone tiled fireplace sits in the middle of a subtle shiplap accent wall, sophisticated blue cabinets help conceal the appliances, and concrete countertops waterfall over the side of the kitchen island. All considered, the tan, blue, and white hues, and beautifully bright interior create a haven that embodies the serenity of a private beach.
