One of Nantucket’s premier properties, “Long Hill,” is perched
majestically at the crest of historic upper Orange Street and enjoys expansive, panoramic
views of the Harbor, Coatue and town. The beautifully landscaped grounds include a formal
English garden with brick walkway rimmed by manicured boxwood, lovely rose gardens,
specimen trees, and a towering privet hedge which surrounds the entire
estate. NOTE: There is an adjacent separate building lot for sale separately- 30A Orange Street. 30 Orange Street must sell prior to 30A.

Additional Details

The front entrance is a highly-detailed portal with fluted columns and etched-glass
sidelights. The foyer, with 14’ ceilings, elaborate, classical molding and original wideplanked
floors, offers a gracious welcome into the oldest portion of the house, which dates
to 1823 and is typical of the Federal style. A reception room has a fireplace, built-in
bookshelves and deeply recessed windows overlooking the gardens. The adjacent drawing
room has a fireplace and classical proportions. The spectacular living room, which extends
across the back of the house, was added on in 1901 and exemplifies the high Georgian
period. French doors open to a graceful veranda and stunning views. The paneled library
and formal dining room each have fireplaces, French doors to the veranda and elaborate
molding and trim – pristine examples of the period. The butler’s pantry and kitchen retain
many elements original to the house, including a zinc sink and cabinetry; those antiques
have been masterfully incorporated with the highest quality appliances and amenities.

There are five en-suite bedrooms on the second floor, which has a grand central hall and
arched doorways. Several offer access to the second floor veranda and all have fireplaces
with lovely surrounds, recessed windows and views of the water and gardens.

There are three, very charming, garret-like bedrooms on the third floor, each with adjoining
water closet and tub/shower. The roof terrace offers unmatched views of the water and
Nantucket. With the exception of the three church steeples of town, this is the highest
structure on the island.

Large, unfinished basement with laundry room and several storage rooms. The furnace, hot
water heater, and electrical systems have been replaced and updated by the current owner.
