Town- 10 Milk Street

Request Information Email To A Friend

When you cross the wide plank floors of 10 Milk, you are walking where over two centuries of history have unfolded. Built in 1788 by James Pinkham, this home was purchased two years later by the renowned "Bonesetter" Zaccheus Macy, a physician, boatbuilder and only person of his generation on island who spoke the Wampanoag language. Carefully preserved in a historically sensitive restoration, this timeless and elegant Federal style residence offers six bedrooms and 5.5 baths, and is one of the few intact historic homes in excellent condition, featuring original wood floors, interior doors with transom lights and six working fireplaces. Few homes on the Nantucket Preservation Trust registry are as large or infused with natural light. The elegance of the home is immediately apparent upon entering the well proportioned entry hall and wide stairway leading to a seating area on the upper landing. The formal living and dining rooms are balanced by a cozy book lined sitting room and spacious dine-in kitchen with French doors opening to a broad deck which overlooks a delightfully landscaped garden, completely hidden from the street. Also on the first floor is a powder room, walk through bar and two guest rooms with one full bath. The second floor features the light infused primary suite with private bath and walk-in closet, and three more bedrooms and two full baths. The third floor is a fully finished spacious and delightful room for sleep, work and play, also with a full bath. A drive-in full basement, adjacent to the outdoor two car parking area, has room for a boat or automobile. 10 Milk Street is an authentic treasure exemplifying the wonderful combination of historic elegance with modern conveniences, including central air conditioning, and is just moments to the historic downtown and is a mere block away from the open fields at the end of New Dollar Lane.
Excluded from the sale - dining room chandelier and front door knocker.
