On the Market: A Costly Cottage on Nantucket
It's a little larger than a school bus, but a tad smaller than your average two-car garage.
8 Bank Street, Nantucket
Size: 387 square feet
It’s not cheap to live on Nantucket. You know that, we know that, everybody knows that. But this teeny tiny cottage for sale in the village of Sconset is comically expensive.
First, you should know that the house totals just 387 square feet. That’s a little larger than a school bus, but a tad smaller than your average two-car garage. It’s also tinier than most studio apartments in Boston. And yet the asking price is a whopping $825,000. That’s $2,132 per square foot, or more than the average asking price in the Seaport.
Astounding price tag aside, the four-room cottage is pretty darn cute. There are vaulted ceilings in the living room, which do their best to add a sense of spaciousness. A Dutch door off the kitchen leads to a small patio with room for an outdoor dining set. There’s also a good-sized closet in the single bedroom, not to mention a full bathroom that squeezes in a washer and dryer.
Best of all, you can glimpse the ocean from the front door (and hear the waves, too). But it could take years of raking in rental income to offset the price of those views.
