Retain the 11,470 sf property as is to create a rare family compound in town or take advantage of the unique ability to subdivide the property, via an 81L subdivision, into two oversized conforming lots in the historic district. This charming antique home has been passed down through generations of the same family since 1820. Per the NHA and Clay Lancaster's book "The Architecture of Historic Nantucket", it is "believed that this dwelling was built before the Revolution and moved to its present location from Old Sherburne." Featuring 4+ bedrooms, 3 full baths, a formal living room, formal dining room, an updated kitchen, a den/office and a beautiful yard.
