It’s no secret that acreage is in high demand on Nantucket, and 360 square feet is all you may need if you become the new owner of “Becalm’d.” The remodeled one-bed, one-bath cottage is listed for $2,095,000.

Built around 1970 but fully renovated in 2021, the price tag for 2 Cabot Lane, Unit A, may seem hefty, but the property could be considered a bargain compared with the eight-figure estates surrounding it.

“The Cliff Road/Lincoln Circle area for $2 million is unheard of. It’s kind of the small fish in the big pond because of the waterfront billionaires,” said J Pepper Frazier II of J Pepper Frazier Real Estate, who has the listing. “The Cliff Road billionaires are a couple of hundred yards away, where one’s going for $22 million.”


A private, cozy front yard leads to the home, which welcomes you with shiplap walls. The kitchen area features all new appliances, and a ladder leads up to a loft, which could serve as an additional sleeping space.

Continue to the back of the house, where you’ll find the tiled bathroom and the sunny primary bedroom. The home has a new heating and cooling system, and there is off-street parking.

In addition to being a turn-key property in a prime location, one of the other selling points for the home is the ability to expand. Set on an approximately 1,427-square-foot (0.03-acre) lot, Frazier notes that there’s potential to add an additional 260 square feet.
