Without a doubt, the best view on the Cliff. This fabulous 5 bedroom home, perched high upon the Cliff, was beautifully renovated in 2005, retaining it’s original character with high ceilings, wood floors, four fireplaces, and an abundance of Nantucket charm. A spacious and sun filled home, sited on a quiet corner of Cabot Lane and within walking distance of Steps Beach, Jetties Beach and Town. The house was built in 1880 by Housewright James H. Gibbs for Reverend William H. Fish and Helen Case Fish of Troy, NY. It is one of the earliest houses on the bluff built for simplistic summer living and sea views. The lot slopes from the Cliff down to North Beach street just across from the entrance to Jetties Beach, the lower portion of which is designated wetland, ensuring that no rooftops will ever invade your spectacular view.
There are very few opportunities of this kind available on the Island which possess the combination of close proximity to town, beaches, and remarkable view. A perfect spot to enjoy the 4th of July Fireworks and to create lasting memories with family and friends in this picture perfect Nantucket location.
