Aug 24 2011
Request Information Email To A Friend

This historic 18th century home is located in one of Nantucket town's most desirable locations with open space that resembles a village green, yet is only two blocks east of Main Street. The incredible in-town location combined with the sensitive renovations by the architect-owner make this home a must see. The formal dining and living room exude the charm of its time with wide pine flooring and original raised paneling. A modern, well-equipped kitchen with access from the two off-street parking places make for a convenient second entrance. The garden is an important extension of the interior and has been on the Garden Conservancy Tour. A large outside deck with awning is just off the casual sitting, dining and kitchen area, an ideal place to enjoy the garden.
