Property description

Unique large fenced-in yard leads up to the entrance of wide steps to a gracious covered porch with seating for 15. The entrance hall has doors to the living room with fireplace and dining room with fireplace (seating 10-12). Library with fireplace, sofa sleeper and bathroom, eat-in kitchen and laundry room complete the first floor. Front and back stairs lead to the second floor of four bedrooms and three bathrooms and a large hall with an ironing area.

This classic, historic Nantucket house with high ceilings and old wide board floors is a terrific family home located several blocks from Main Street and downtown Nantucket. Beaches are a bike or car ride away.
