Throughout the long history of Nantucket, the harbor, with its piers and boat traffic, has been the economic and social focus of this vibrant community thirty miles out to sea.
16 Easton Street has been a careful observer of this activity and energy and is now available to be shared with a new owner.
There are two structures on the property; the main house, fronting the harbor and the cottage with first and second floor views of the water.
The main house was built in 1954 and leans toward a mid-century modern aesthetic. The focus of which is to exclude any visual barrier between the interior and exterior of the home. Sitting in the living room and looking out the gallery of windows, there is the sense that the house is floating on the water. This same impression is conveyed to the dining area and to four of the five spacious bedrooms.
French doors sweep out to the large deck and on to a grassy lawn and then to the harbor bulkhead. There are steps to the water for swimming and boating.
The cottage is of newer construction and has a generous first floor master suite with water views, two bedrooms upstairs along with kitchen and open living area. A large deck provides a wide-ranging view of the harbor and town. The cottage also has a large attached, heated and air conditioned two car garage.
The property is gifted with a permanent easement to use the east side of the adjoining pier.
The first floor of the main home includes the living room, dining area, kitchen, and a large en suite bedroom at the rear, plus two waterfront bedrooms. A wall of windows runs the entire length of the public area of the house. French doors open to a large deck that steps down to the lawn and pier.
The second floor of the main home has two large bedrooms which again, have sweeping views of the harbor and town.
2-car garage and ample off-street parking
The cottage sits behind the main house, and retains views of the harbor from both the first and second floors. There is a generous first floor master suite with balcony, a second floor living area with fireplace and large balcony looking out over the harbor and town. The are two additional bedrooms on the second floor which share a lovely bath. There is an attached two car garage.
