EXPANSIVE EQUESTRIAN ESTATE 21 Crooked Lane, Nantucket Square feet: 5,000 on 30 acres Beds + Baths: 4; 4 full and 2 half Amenities: A rotating saddle wall in the tack room to lock away riding gear, an 8-stall barn, 3 fireplaces Price: $10.775 million Agent: Gary Winn, Maury People Sotheby's International Realty, 508-228-1881 ext. 115; THE PRESENT: One of the biggest horse properties on the island, this home, says listing agent Gary Winn of Maury People Sotheby's International Realty, "is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In my 30 years of selling real estate, I've never seen 30 acres of land on Nantucket come on to the market." With so much space, the estate is both quiet and private. In addition to the finished barn and paddock area, the property also has extensive gardens, a terrace, and three miles of cleared paths for riding. THE FUTURE, REDESIGNED: Nantucket interior designer Kathleen Hay likes this home's strong bones and interesting barnlike features, but she would update the color scheme and finishes. "Virtually brand-new, the home offers myriad design opportunities to potential buyers. I would paint the lofty ceilings and the chunky beams white to brighten the space," says Hay. "The stone fireplace is a beautiful feature, and it would pop against a glossy white sea of paint." She would stain the floors darker throughout the house in order to ground the space and give sharp contrast to the lighter furnishings and white ceilings. "The furnishings should have clean lines and subtle fabrics so that the architecture remains the star in this uniquely designed house," she says. Hay recommends the 906 Sofa from Holly Hunt for its modern profile and wood accent details. She would pair it with the Chanel cocktail table from Bradley: "The geometric design and concrete top are perfect complements to any updated design scheme."
