This exceptional property sits just moments away from Nantucket’s storied waterfront and cobblestoned Main Street, yet offers an oversized lot with gorgeous outdoor living areas, a four-level, new-construction home and a two-bay garage. One of very few properties that offers this much so close to Town, 11 Hussey Street is also a prominent part of Nantucket’s history. Boasting six completely restored fireplaces, many well-preserved period details and six bedrooms and six bathrooms, this property has been lovingly cared for since 1735. Now completely restored and updated to include every current amenity for today’s buyer, this is the perfect property from which to enjoy the best of Town yet with so much space to entertain and enjoy life at home.
First Floor: Enter into a bright front foyer which immediately reveals the masterful preservation of special details of this historic Nantucket property now complemented by high-end design and construction. To the right of the foyer is a sun-filled and spacious living room with beautiful wide-plank pine floors and one of six fireplaces boasting gorgeous original paneling. Adjacent to this room is a den/library with custom bookshelves and access to a full bath. The formal dining room with fireplace and original paneling opens to a three-season, covered porch overlooking the side yard, patio and mature gardens beyond. The first floor is anchored around an open-concept kitchen, dining, and sitting area with a perfectly restored fireplace. High-end finishes abound while thoughtful details like a dry bar with custom cabinetry and wine cooler offer fabulous functionality. This portion of the home enjoys easy access to both the large side yard, patio and gardens, as well as the laundry room and storage areas just off of the side entrance from the garage.
Second Floor: The second floor enjoys great ambient light as well as four bedrooms and four bathroom. There is a large master bedroom suite with fireplace, three custom-fitted closets and oversized bathroom with double vanity, tiled shower and large soaking tub. Across the hall is a spacious guest bedroom suite with fireplace, new private bath and large closet. Two additional, private bedrooms are to the rear of the second floor.
One enjoys its own private bath while another overlooks the garden and enjoys easy access to a hall bathroom (which could be converted to provide ensuite access).
Third Floor: The third floor offers tremendous spaces for guests or extended family and is really its own fully-functioning two-bedroom suite. There is a central sitting/TV room with custom cabinetry housing a beverage refrigerator. One of the guest bedrooms enjoys views of the First Congregational church steeple while the other overlooks the yard and gardens. Each has closets and use of the third floor full bathroom.
Basement: Yet another fabulous area to gather, this lower level is anything but a basement. This charming area features a brick floor throughout, enjoys great sunlight from the above-grade windows and a fantastic, oversized fireplace in the living area. A secondary laundry area with marble counter is perfect for extra beach towels. Mechanical rooms are also on this floor, including the equipment for the HVAC geothermal system. There is also an exterior door leading to the driveway.
