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.

First Floor

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.

Second Floor

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.

Third Floor

The third floor consists of two bedrooms and a full Bath with claw foot tub and a hand-held shower.

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!
