46 Easton Street, Nantucket, MA

MLS Number 72094220

  • Single Family
  • Bathroom 3
  • Bedrooms 7
  • Year Built 1897
  • Parking Spaces 20

It's impossible to over-express the historic value of this home when one considers its extraordinary past and legacy. If you consider yourself a preservationist, one with respect for a home's provenance, then you will appreciate this property immensely. Two small homes were moved from another island location to this lot in 1897 then, a few years later, cleverly joined together to create one larger home, so typical of Yankee thrift and ingenuity. Situated defiantly on Brant Point, making a statement to those who succumbed to modernization and change, she peers out across the inner harbor proudly proclaiming her rebellious nature to thousands of tourists every day. Decades of the original owner's descendants have cared more about enjoying the home and its prime location than keeping up with prevailing trends. This home is one of the most authentic, textbook "Old Nantucket" homestead available on the island and represents a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own an iconic island landmark.
