This four bedroom, four bath home is located just steps from the historic district of Downtown Nantucket. There is off street parking, a tasteful blue stone patio and attractive garden. "The house has historical significance not from the whale-ship captain who built it, Obed Swain, but from his wife, Harriet Swain. Harriet was a Petticoat Whaler, one of the few woman who accompanied their husbands on the ship during whaling voyages". The house was updated and renovated in 2011 by Cheney Brothers, with redesign by Emeritus Development.
