49 Orange Street Nantucket
This house was built in 1796 by a descendent of the original Gardner family settlers, and represents a fine example of late 18th century Quaker design. It remains in much its original configuration, and has been held in the same family for the past 7 decades. The property offers 5 bedrooms, 4 fireplaces, original wide pine floors (some nearly 24" wide!!), a butler's pantry, off street parking, and a wonderful location, high on Orange Street, and very close to Main Street shopping and dining. Views of prominent homes on shady Gorham's Court add to the charm of this special Nantucket gem.
From the front stoop, enter the divided screen door to a welcoming front foyer with coat closet and winding front stairway to the second floor landing. The front foyer and living room offer wide pine floors with a rich and storied patina. The living room to the left of the entry has a beamed ceiling, fireplace, and small closet. The living room opens to a convenient office space with access to a powder room and dining room. The dining room with fireplace opens to a butler's pantry with built-in hutch and porcelain sink. The kitchen is simple, and easily accessible from the back door and mud room / laundry room. A rear staircase is accessible from the kitchen.
The front bedroom is spacious, and offers a Harbor view, as well as a fireplace, closet, and access to the full bath, which is shared with the middle bedroom. The rear staircase accesses the middle bedroom, as well as the rear bedroom, with its own private bath. A staircase here leads to the third floor.
The third floor consists of two bedrooms and a full Bath with claw foot tub and a hand-held shower.
Crawl space and buttery.
