Nantucket’s hidden secret. Candlehouse is a long standing piece of Nantucket’s robust history. Situated on an oversized lot, the home was originally built in 1809 by Joseph Starbuck, who owned the adjacent candle factory. Today, the home has been beautifully maintained and the grounds offer significant expansive possibilities, with lush and private surroundings. Nestled between New Dollar Lane and Pleasant Street, this large property enjoys proximity to upper Main Street and Downtown.
First Floor: Preserved and awe-inspiring, enter the home to a sitting room that features cathedral ceilings, loft space, original brick fireplace and paneled walls and beams. From this room, there is access to the side patio and large, lush yard. The trees on this property are some of the oldest on the island and the outdoor living is just as much an oasis as the interior space. From the sitting room, enter into the large kitchen complete with modern appliances. From here enter the “new” wing, which was built in 1938. The master suite showcases the stunning craftsmanship of the home with original wide board floors, beams and brick fireplace, as well as an en suite bath.
Second Floor: The second floor offers three additional bedrooms. To the left of the landing are two guest rooms with a shared hall bath and to the right, a bedroom with an en suite bath.
