Property description

Seahorse was built in the 1700's by a fisherman. She is located in the center of Historic Nantucket in what is known as the Fish Lots, just blocks from Main Street. New to the market due to a total restoration, Seahorse is a bright and airy cottage that captures both the charm and history of Nantucket's architecture. She boasts of exposed beams in the ceilings, the original pine floors, wood stove, fireplace, and soapstone counters; yet she has all the modern conveniences including off street parking. Seahorse is furnished with a charming combination of antique furniture and portraits that reflect Nantucket's history. Outside there is a shower and patio that is surrounded by a traditional English Garden that is the envy of the neighborhood. There is nothing ordinary about the little gem. Sea Horse is listed as historically significant with the Historic Society of Nantucket because she is one of a kind. She has also been included on the Nantucket Preservation Walking Tour due to the detail to restoration with Historic preservation in mind.
