9 Gay Street, Nantucket, MA

Recently renovated by Cheney Brothers with thoughtful attention to detail this antique four bedroom, four bath home is nestled on one of the most charming streets in the historic district of Downtown Nantucket.

First Floor

Walk up the stairs of this sunny abode and into a bright welcoming hallway with two closets for ample storage. To the right sits a small powder room. To the left, a cozy parlor with fireplace. Further down the hall sits the dining room on the left. This dining room features exceptional woodwork: gorgeous wood paneling and a coffered ceiling. The end of the hallway opens on the right to a mudroom thoughtfully appointed with a bench seat and shelves for all your summer gear. Through the exterior mudroom door, access the bluestone patio, and off-street parking area. A convenient full bath with shower completes this mudroom. Beyond the mudroom, the space opens into a large living room and kitchen area. Custom built-in shelves flank one wall. Opposite, the room opens into a beautifully decorated kitchen. The kitchen has a large marble island for prepping and relaxing. The Carrera counters, beautiful backsplash, farmhouse sink, wolf stove, and sub-zero refrigerator round out the superb culinary design of this beautiful space. Adjacent to this area is an eat-in dining area complete with a built-in banquette. The remarkable custom herringbone floors unite this space.

Second Floor

Up the front hall stairs sits a bright hall landing situated at the front of the house with plenty of space for a desk area. To the left of the top of the stairs find the en-suite master bedroom accented by mirrored closet spaces and a fireplace. The beautifully tiled master bath has a large shower with glass surround and double vanities. Further down the upstairs hallway to the left is a beautifully tiled bathroom complete with tub. To the right, is a bedroom with built-in bench seat and attractive scalloped built-in bookshelves. Further down the hall, step down into an area with two closets one for the washer and one for the dryer. Between these two functional spaces sits an area that could easily accommodate a daybed or sitting area. To the left is a nautical inspired bunk room with custom twin over queen built-in beds complete with ships portholes. The last en-suite bedroom sits at the furthest end of this hall. This room is highlighted by beadboard ceilings which create a cozy, quiet retreat.
