12 Milk Street, Nantucket, MA
A very special piece of Nantucket history, this gracious home and the separate studio are sited on an oversized lot, just four doors away from Main Street and moments to historic landmarks. Lovingly cared for, the home proudly features period-appropriate character while incorporating many of today's modern amenities. The generous lot includes shade trees, flowering gardens and a manicured lawn, creating an in-Town oasis that can be admired from up upon the deck or from the patio below.
First Floor: The front foyer, which was the original borning room, leads to a full bathroom with a tub/shower. Beyond is the living room, which is light-filled and accented by a fireplace. The back of the home is gracious and includes a dining area surrounded by three walls of windows looking out to the deck and manicured yard and gardens beyond. This space flows seamlessly into the kitchen which is accented with soapstone counters, a center island, built-in hutch and a large pantry. This area also incorporates a mudroom, with easy access from the driveway, and a laundry area. The dining room is found at the front corner of the home, close enough to the kitchen but lends itself to a special entertaining area.
