109 Main Street $4,395,000
This gracious, 1830â€™s-circa Federal style home is being brought to market as a thorough and masterful renovation orchestrated by Andrew Kotchen, principal of the prominent New York City architectural firm, Workshop/APD, and frequently featured in Architectural Digest - most recently in March 2018. Impeccably maintained and in pristine condition, this offering represents an opportunity for a discerning buyer to own a five bedroom, five and one-half bathroom home on Upper Main Street, unarguably the most prestigious address on Nantucket Island. Beautiful custom work, magnificent craftsmanship, an overriding respect for the historic integrity of era and place, and modern amenities - including commercial art gallery lighting throughout the house - are among the hallmarks that enhance this lovely home and make it a must see for the buyer desiring the very best. The house is sited well above street level and, as is typical with the Federal style, the faÃ§ade is elegant in its simplicity. The front elevation is clapboard (this is painted in a high sheen muted gray), with side and rear elevations shingled in the true island tradition. Perched on the hip roof is a widowâ€™s walk, where views of the historic neighborhood can be enjoyed. Fully sound proofed, occupants enjoy this prime location on Main Street without being disturbed by passersby. Clearly, no expense has been spared.
Full basement accessible through interior and exterior doors
First Floor Description:
Decorated by acclaimed interior designer Mariette Himes Gomez, this home is a showpiece. The rooms are well proportioned, with nice ceiling heights, original mantelpieces on all six wood burning fireplaces, and the original wide-planked pine floors (which were taken off site and refurbished). The front door opens to a lovely reception area with handsome paneling; a graceful stairway leads to the second floor. To the left of the entry is a front sitting room with a fireplace, which leads through to a library, also with a fireplace. The dining room, also with a fireplace, has a built-in curio cabinet. It opens to the English Arts and Crafts kitchen, designed and imported by Wilkinson Kitchens of London. The detailing of the cabinets is remarkable: crafted of sublime Sycamore with Tiger Maple and checkered glass detailing, the boat latch hardware is a reminder of the islandâ€™s maritime heritage. Under cabinet lighting, stone tiles imported from French quarries, matte black granite countertops, a sizable pantry, the highest quality appliances (many multiples - convenient if entertaining), and an adjacent butlerâ€™s pantry and laundry make this kitchen the consummate space for either a family cooking casually together, or a chef preparing for a lavish event.
Second Floor Description:
There are four en suite bedrooms on the second floor, including the master suite. All are flooded with lovely natural light, have generous closets, and overlook the charming roof and treetops of the neighborhood.
Third Floor Description:
The charming third floor has two bedrooms, a sitting room, and a full bath. While it retains the charm of a garret-like top floor, it is comfortable and inviting.
The guest cottage has a nice-sized living room with two sets of barn doors: one opening to the stone terrace (where al fresco dining can be enjoyed) and the other to the well-manicured yard. There is a kitchenette, full bath, and loft bedroom. The same careful attention to detail and quality can be found here as in the main house.
