Here is an opportunity to own a true piece of Nantucket history. This Greek revival home was built by ship's captain David N Edwards circa 1840. A successful whale ship captain of four voyages between 1825 and 1841, Captain Edwards commanded such ships as the Paragon, the Harvest, the Montano, and the Nantucket. Clearly, his home is evidence of his success. The main floor consists of a formal living room, a study, a media room, a very large dining room, a modern kitchen with sitting and breakfast areas, a large butler's pantry, and a half bath. The living room, study and dining room each have a fireplace. The ceilings are exceptionally high throughout. At the top of the main staircase is a landing that is grand enough to serve as a third living area. Here, there are three bedrooms in addition to the master suite. The master is yet another living area. It is composed of three rooms; a sitting / exercise room with fireplace, a large bathroom with soaking tub and shower, and at the back, an impressive vaulted bedroom with three walls of windows and sitting area. There are views of the harbor. On the third floor is a large open bedroom with full bath. All this can be closed off from the rest of the house. Here you will find the sturdy ladder up to the cupola. Studio cottage with full bath which makes property function like a seven bedroom.

Lower Level Large basement with interior and exterior access.
