This charming and thoughtfully renovated 1760's antique home sits on an oversized lot moments from Downtown Nantucket. The meticulously maintained home features four bedrooms, a bright open floor plan, central AC, wide antique pine floors and historic details throughout. A primary suite, added in 2003, is located in its own wing on the first floor and has a cathedral ceiling and French doors leading outside. A large custom kitchen with a cathedral ceiling was installed in 2011. A private side yard and an enclosed, brick courtyard provide plenty of outdoor living space for enjoying summer days. The manicured yard is surrounded by mature landscaping that includes dogwood trees, hydrangeas and trellises with abundant climbing roses. There are two shelled off-street parking spaces located on Joy Street. A convenient Town location with easy access to all Nantucket has to offer. This home has been recognized by the Nantucket Preservation Trust.
