One of the finest examples of a Nantucket Quaker home was built as early as 1750, this four bay original homestead of Captain Peleg Bunker is historically intact for the preservation enthusiast. This unique property offers 7 fireplaces, a roof walk, original pine flooring and patina, period detail, and an oversized (9,000+ square foot) lot. It is located in the heart of the Old Historic District of Nantucket, one block to Main Street, just moments to shops and restaurants. This 4 bedroom home will appeal to the restoration-minded buyer, and awaits its next steward. Recognized by the Nantucket Preservation Trust as an historically significant property, a portion of the house and grounds are protected with a preservation easement.
