On the Market: A Historic Nantucket Home
24 Fair Street, Nantucket
Size: 2,800 square feet
This 291-year-old-house is one of the oldest homes on Nantucket’s Fair Street. Built in 1725, the time-honored dwelling was renovated in 2002. It’s called the Coffin House, but is not to be confused with the Jethro Coffin House—Nantucket’s oldest residence.
A spacious and colorful kitchen contains one of the home’s eight fireplaces, as well as plenty of original details that remain throughout many of the rooms. A double parlor opens to a porch and private patio that boasts a few fragrant shrubs. The house is topped off with a widow’s walk, complete with a few chaise lounges overlooking the harbor.
