Built by Captain Charles Grant, this property evinces the glory of Nantucket’s whaling era. The house is a classic example of Greek revival architecture that became popular as the island’s fortunes rose with the whaling industry. Many original ornate details have been preserved from the grand sweeping staircase to marble fireplace surrounds, plaster moldings, high ceilings, and original wide plank floors. Complete with harbor views, three floors of expansive restored decks, an apartment, a two-car garage, yard space, and an unbeatable location, this special property is not to be missed.

First Floor

Enter off Orange Street to a large entryway with soaring ceilings and a grand staircase. To the right is a gracious sitting room with oversized windows that let in an abundance of light. An original fireplace with marble facing and ornate molding make this a wonderful space. A formal dining room with another original fireplace with a marble surround imported from New Zealand is the perfect room to host dinner parties. This room abuts a large butler’s pantry and a substantial kitchen. The kitchen opens to one of the restored decks, perfect for outdoor dining, lounging, or entertaining. The deck overlooks the lush gardens and comprehensive yard. A beautifully appointed mudroom completes this floor with cubbies, tile, and a powder room.

Second Floor

Located at the top of the grand staircase is a large bedroom that overlooks Orange Street. A marble-tiled bathroom with a shower compliments this bedroom. A large sitting room with a fireplace is a wonderful bonus space and two bedrooms are located off of this area. A large en-suite bedroom and a smaller bedroom with a twin bed. To the rear of the house with glimpses of the harbor and its own deck is another bedroom. A full bathroom completes this floor.

Third Floor

Continue up the rear stairs to an expansive room with wooden beams and a full bathroom. Step out through the sliding glass doors and onto a private deck that overlooks Nantucket Harbor and out to the Monomoy creeks. This sweeping retreat is an incredibly private and serene primary suite.
