72 Main Street, Town

Completed in 1822 by whaleship owner John Wendell Barrett, 72 Main Street has stood as an enduring example of the wealth of the Nantucket whaling community. It survived the great fire through the virtue of his wife, Lydia, who refused to leave the property when fire wardens wanted to blow it up to stop the fires advance. It is everything you should expect from a home of this stature. Soaring ceilings, elaborate trim work, nine fireplaces, formal, informal, and family rooms on the main floor including formal dining, large kitchen with breakfast area, sun room with fireplace and access to a tidy and private back yard. The second floor has four ensuite bedrooms. The third floor is a former attic space, now a spacious open floor plan bedroom from which there is access to Main Streets largest cupola. There are 360 degree views of the harbor and town. The basement has additional finished living area and a half bath. The large covered side porch, side yard and overlook of the park make the outdoor space unique. Off-street parking includes three large spaces. This is an opportunity to truly own a piece of Nantucket history.
