A rare opportunity to own a beautifully renovated piece of Nantucket history! Featured in Clay Lancaster's 'Historical Architecture of Nantucket' as a unique one of a kind home, 'Seahorse' was built in the 1700's in what was and still is known as the 'Fish Lots.' Located toward the end of Pine Street, this jewel box house is one of the only 1/2 Cape designs on the island making it 'historically significant.' Framed by a lovely manicured lawn and gardens, the home overflows with authentic Nantucket design. The current owners have taken painstaking care to renovate the home to her original glory, including replacing the exterior brick foundation with brick from an Irish Bank built in the same timeframe as Seahorse. There are countless examples of preserved features throughout the home, including the 6 over 6 windows in the basement, the original interior stairway and the exposed transom window. There are multiple exposed original beams and wide pine flooring throughout. In recent years, the current owners added central AC, hydronic forced air heat and radiant heat in basement and main level floors. In 2022, Seahorse is getting even further updates with the addition of 2 new bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms in the lower level, each with their own walk-out egress access. 2 additional bedrooms and 2.5 additional bathrooms upstairs provide fantastic living space in this well loved home. With off street parking and over 500 square feet of ground cover available, the home has opportunity for expansion or is ready now for a new family to move in and carry the story of this Nantucket treasure into the next generation.
