Congratulations to The Georgantas Family for receiving a 2020 Paul & Niki Tsongas Award for their restoration of 7 Judith Chase Lane on Nantucket! The Tsongas Award is Preservation Massachusetts' highest honor, honoring people and projects that have displayed the highest level of commitment to historic preservation in the Commonwealth.
There were many involved with this incredible project including The Nantucket Architecture Group and Main Street Construction, both of which have extensive experience renovating historic homes on Nantucket.
Sold to the Georgantas family in 2016 through Bernadette Meyer and Craig Hawkins of Maury People Sotheby's International Realty, 7 Judith Chase Lane is one of the oldest structures remaining in one of Nantucket's oldest neighborhoods. Built-in 1746 the home is quintessentially Nantucket in style that has an ownership history that includes prominent island family names such as Folger, Hussey, Chase, and Gardner.
Upon purchase, the historic property began a 3-year restoration process. The new owners set out to restore the original house that had suffered from deterioration and neglect over time. To do this there were many obstacles to overcome to keep the home's historic integrity while making it relevant to their modern-day family. The end result is a beautiful home that preserves an important part of Nantucket's history.
We are very excited to offer this property as a vacation rental, details can be viewed here.
