This antique Nantucket home has been thoughtfully and masterfully restored and represents an opportunity to live in the heart of the Old Historic District. The location, which bridges Town, the Cliff, and Brant Point, offers every convenience and is among the most desirable and coveted on the island. Built in 1770, this four bedroom, three and one-half home has been owned by one family for more than 50 years. Impeccably maintained, it is in pristine condition. Original details, such as the antique wide pine floors, beamed ceilings, traditional millwork, iron hardware, and four fireplaces have been preserved and suggest a respect for the historic integrity of the Early American, Quaker-style aesthetic. From the cobbled street, this home appears to be a step back into Nantucket’s rich and storied history: the pitched roof, the sidelights on either side of the front door, the picket fence that separates the clapboard facade from the brick way. Yet once inside, it is clear that great care has been taken to update it with the highest quality amenities and appointments for today’s modern lifestyle. 25 North Water Street awaits a new family to call it their Nantucket home today and for future generations.
