"Quiet Corner" is a beautifully preserved five bedroom two bath Craftsman style Bungalow house built in 1912. This extraordinary home, with its charming front porch, and sunny inviting rooms is a nostalgic step back to early Nantucket in Brant Point. The house has been in current ownership since the 1950's and lovingly maintained while keeping the original layout. The Craftsman style details are obvious throughout both floors with spacious rooms and high ceilings. The open living/dining room features a fieldstone fireplace, beamed ceilings, open stud-construction, original built-ins, narrow wood paneling, and original wood floors and windows.
