28 India Street

28 India Street, Nantucket, MA

It is extraordinary that this property remains intact at 26,637 square feet, making it one of the largest parcels of land in Nantucket’s Old Historic District spanning from India Street to Rose Lane. Sitting high above India Street, this elegant Georgian-style home was built for noted whaling Captain David J. Baxter in the early 1830s. The home exudes a charm and character that evokes thoughts of Nantucket’s prosperity during the glory of the whaling era. The interior boasts high ceilings, many original details, and spacious rooms.

First Floor

A classic Nantucket Friendship staircase leads up to the front door of 28 India Street, which is set high above the neighboring properties. The grand entry foyer offers a dramatic curved staircase leading to the second level. To the right sits a formal parlor that spans the majority of the house and is accented by high ceilings, original moldings, and two fireplaces as well as large windows that flood the space with natural light. To the left of the entry-foyer is a sitting room with a fireplace that is separated from the dining room by impressive pocket doors. Off the dining room, are french doors that open to the large screened in porch overlooking the expansive yard. Steps lead down from the porch to the impressive grounds. Beyond the dining is a pantry that opens into the kitchen, a laundry room and access to the back deck. Off the center, hall is an elevator and a full bath as well as access to the lower level.

Two of these are adjoined by a full bath, and one bedroom has an attached half bath. Off the rear hall is a full bath with double vanities, access to the elevator and the third floor.

After study and work abroad in Fribourg, Switzerland, and Paros, Greece, Nicole graduated with a BA from Providence College with studies in both science and the humanities, and moved to Nantucket shortly thereafter.

Nicole began her real estate career on Nantucket in the early 90s, as the assistant to Lawrason Riggs, Jr., a wonderful mentor and a highly regarded professional in the field, quickly establishing herself as a successful Broker in her own right.

After taking the millennium to double-hand her 46 foot sloop through the Panama Canal and across the South Pacific to New Zealand, Nicole returned to Nantucket to launch a prominent island real estate firm.

In 2012, Nicole sold her partnership in that business to work independently, emphasizing the importance of her customized and personal attention.

Three years later, and with great pleasure, Nicole joined the energetic, friendly, and professional team at Great Point Properties. She combines her 25+ years of experience, and continued commitment to personal attention, with Great Point Properties’ broad presence in the marketplace to provide the highest level of service and market research available.

Her commitment extends well beyond real estate as the devoted mother of her two beloved high school-aged boys, Henry and Charlie.  When Nicole is not with clients, you can find her cheering from the sidelines at squash matches, at mark roundings in Saturday’s Yacht Club races, or challenging the boys to a tennis match or the occasional race “to the barn and back” with their playful dog, Buddy.  A passionate traveler, Nicole is committed to raising responsible and respectful citizens of the world.  She and her boys cross the country and globe for an annual travel adventure!
