This antique home at 15 Fair Street on Nantucket is in an unrivaled downtown location next to the Ships Inn towards the end of Fair Street. The home was built in 1830 and renovated in 2002 to include central air, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Wolf stove. Beautiful wood flooring and cabinetry and 8 fireplaces are reminders of historic Nantucket. The lower level offers multiple living spaces and a first-floor guest suite. The property has been regularly updated and offers something unique in today’s real estate market.
But what about the history? 15 Fair Street belonged to Thomas Coffin, a great whaling Captain of his time. 15 Fair Street is the childhood residence of his daughter Lucretia Coffin (Mott). Mott is a well-known women’s rights leader and abolitionist.
