Majestically nestled on the North Shore Hilltop, this residential historic district property was the home of the whaling ship ALTO's Captain Calder who purchased the land in 1833 and built his residence between whaling expeditions. The intown location was chosen for its high elevation, providing sea breezes and cross ventilation in every room. The late Federalist-style residence with recent amenities boasts 17 bedrooms, 18.5 baths, 7 fireplaces, an inviting sitting room and eat-in kitchen that comfortably seats 14. The charming first floor wrap-around veranda invites family and friends to relax and enjoy the multiple patios and sitting areas that overflow with lush landscaping. The property's surrounding residential neighborhood is composed of some of the most elegant summer abodes on Nantucket Island. Currently operated as a bed & breakfast inn, the opportunity awaits the buyer desiring to become a hotelier or to simply return it to its private residential past.
