A Traditional Nantucket Home Worthy of a Great Legacy Seeks $18.5M

When it comes to sumptuous spots to summer on the East Coast, many homes have been in families for decades. Just reference Taylor Swift’s new song, “the last great american dynasty.” Rarely hitting the market, these pricey coastal getaways hold a certain allure whether they once belonged to the Kennedys or other affluent families. A well-to-do buyer can now begin building a legacy like that at this shingle-style Nantucket home. Listed for $18.5 million, it has all the bells and whistles to enjoy for generations.

Built in 1900, the home holds its history dear while beaming with updates from a 1998 renovation. Though it has been updated, the interiors stay true to Nantucket’s classically traditional vernacular. The harmony of embracing the area’s style brings a sense of peace, along with the ocean views, of course.

Hydrangeas and the sea breeze can be a new owner’s favorite neighbor. There’s a front porch, third-floor deck, and rooftop terrace along with the enchanting back patio. Even when the rain drives the fun inside, elegant interiors and cozy living spaces are ready to entertain.

Since there are seven bedrooms, there can be a rotation of family and friends visiting as soon as the beaches warm up. It can also be a beautiful year-round residence where winters will be tourist-free, quiet, and full of snowy picturesque scenes.

Barbara Jenkins and Gary Winn of Maury People Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.
