First time on the market in this century, this multi-generational Nantucket estate is situated in the coveted Fair Street neighborhood. The property has been meticulously renovated with impeccable craftsmanship and details that offer a casual and sophisticated elegance which honor the history of the homes. The two houses, on two lots, boast over 10,000 square feet of interior living space and are a magical summer enclave for all ages to enjoy. With over 11 bedrooms, this is a one-of-a-kind island estate that was masterfully renovated and would be difficult to duplicate.
2 Farmer Street lends itself to a more formal, historical feel while the Shaker-style home on 1 Twin Street is a more relaxed, contemporary environment.
First Floor: Farmer Street: As you enter this exquisite home you are immediately taken aback by the hand painted, shell inlaid dining room completely lit by candlelight. As you flow through to the rear of the home you have an open living room with multiple sitting areas. There is also a side entrance from the first floor to the driveway. The chef’s kitchen offers a center island, informal dining area and fireplace which is a great space any day of the year. The French Doors from the kitchen lead to a beautiful terrace for outdoor dining but is also the gateway to the Twin Street yard and transitional garden space.
Twin Street: From the first floor living room with beautiful wide pine floors, there are three sets of French doors that lead to an oversized porch and a spacious yard. On the other side of the great room is a dining room which can access two additional outdoor spaces, a garden area and a porch. The piece de resistance of this property is the gourmet kitchen. The space offers shiplap walls, dramatic vaulted stained-wood ceiling and architectural lines that mimic the original barn that once stood in this space. The 12-person farm table is matched in length by the kitchen island topped with a single piece of wood found in upstate New York and the antique chandelier lowers and raises by an electrical switch. Lastly, this space offers a tremendous butler’s pantry and multiple work areas.
Additional features on this floor are a front parlor and a powder room that utilizes reclaimed wood from the original attic floor on the powder room’s walls and ceiling. Mirrored sconces from Vaughan add polish to the rustic surfaces. A side entrance on the east side of the home offers a coat room while two staircases allow for easy access to the second floor.
