In 1837, wealthy whaling merchant William Crosby commissioned Henry Macy to construct a 7,000+/- square foot, seven-bedroom mansion at One Pleasant Street. Now, this magnificent Greek Revival style residence, known as the William Crosby House, is offered for sale and represents an opportunity to acquire one of the island’s finest, most significant buildings. Behind the historic facade are rooms of gracious proportion and grand scale, with plentiful natural light, soaring ceilings, and exquisite craftsmanship. A recent renovation meets the highest standards; great care was taken to respect the historic integrity of the structure and its original design. New systems (plumbing, electrical, HVAC), a spectacular new kitchen, new baths, and new flooring were carefully conceived and integrated to make this nineteenth century gem conducive to today’s modern lifestyle. A truly spectacular residence, One Pleasant Street awaits a new owner to enjoy gracious living and entertaining in what is inarguably one of Nantucket’s most iconic buildings.

First Floor Description:

From the first step into the gracious entry hall, the magnificence of this home is apparent. In adherence to the architectural tradition, the living and dining rooms are of classic proportion and scale. Each has a fireplace with an elegant marble mantel and 10-foot, 18 x 18 windows which allow for plentiful natural light. Pocket doors can be closed for small-scale entertaining, or opened for large gatherings. The new kitchen features high end appliances and marble counters; the adjoining family room enjoys views of a lovely, private yard. In mild weather, the covered porch beckons early morning risers for a quiet coffee and, later in the day, family and friends for al fresco dining.

Second Floor Description:

The graceful curved stairway winds from the entry way to the second floor landing, where there is a sitting area and a second story porch which looks out over the leafy neighborhood - ideal for sunbathing. The master bedroom suite is spacious and luxurious and, with a fireplace and windows that can be shuttered to keep out early morning sun, could hardly be more inviting. The bath has radiant heat marble floors, double marble vanity; there is a large walk-in closet. There are two additional en-suite bedrooms.

Third Floor Description:

There are three en-suite bedrooms and a cupola on the third floor.

Basement Description:

This fully-finished floor has high ceilings, great natural light and offers an ideal space for extra guests or recreation. There is an entertainment room with fireplace, a bedroom (with exterior access), two baths (one full, one half), and a laundry room with built-ins.
