About the Property

6 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

This home is an Island signature property which is steeped in Nantucket history. Built in 1765, by Peter Folger (who's daughter Abiah grew up, married and gave birth to Ben Franklin), it was occupied by 5 generations of the Folger family from 1765 until 1955. It has been the subject of artists, photographers and historians because of its wonderful stye and it's unique design as a full 3 story residence.

It changed hands a number of times until it was purchased by the present owner and totally renovated in 1992. All of the elegance, style and character of the property was maintained while modernizing all 3 floors.

Experience gracious living in a wonderful home conveniently located within easy walking distance to all that Nantucket has to offer.

We're just moments away from historic downtown Nantucket with it's wonderful museums, diverse shops, movies, theater, tremendous restaurants, marinas (charter boats ... fishing ... sailing) and Steamboat Wharf.

Access to public transportation and a networks of bike paths which can connect you to all parts of the Island including some of the best beaches in the country is a few minutes walk or ride.

Golfers: We're within a 15 minute drive to either of the Island's two public courses, Miacomet Golf Club and Sconset Golf Club.

Tennis anyone? It's about a 10 minute drive to the Nantucket Tennis and Swim Club.

Explore the Island by bike via a network of bike paths or, for the more adventurous, off road mountain biking over miles of back roads through Conservation Land.

At the end of each fun-filled day, you'll be happy to return to your wonderfully gracious Nantucket home.
