If the idea of vacationing with your entire family in tow gives you hives, then this multi-dwelling property on Nantucket may do the trick.

Known as “Driftwood,” 16 Easton St. is on the waterfront in Nantucket’s coveted Brant Point neighborhood. Constituting two homes on a stunning half acre, the peaceful oasis, listed at $15,250,000, is ideal for vacationers who may need a break from one another at the end of the day.

“It’s the quintessential Nantucket lifestyle in the most positive of ways,” said Cam Gammill of Fisher Real Estate, who has the listing.

The 4,359-square-foot main house, which was built by a brother and sister in 1954, is a classic cottage that embraces the waterfront location. The five-bed, four-bath home is filled with natural light and the scent of fresh salt air. Stunning panoramic views from the enormous wraparound windows stream light into the living room and dining room. Antique pine floors run throughout, tying together the three first-floor bedrooms, including the primary suite. There are two additional bedrooms upstairs, each with a beautiful view. Back downstairs, French doors lead out to the roomy back deck and allow the owner to continue down to the flat, grassy lawn overlooking the Atlantic. The private deepwater dock is perfect for vacationers who enjoy fishing, boating, and sailing.


The secondary dwelling, built in 1996, is a 1,585-square-foot garden cottage with three bedrooms and two baths. On the first floor, the primary suite features a beautiful fireplace, a bathroom with a steam shower and separate tub, and a sliding glass door to the deck. Upstairs, a cozy sitting area offers another fireplace, and a Juliet balcony overlooks the beautiful landscape. The home also has a two-car garage.

The property, which can be bought partially furnished, would be an ideal purchase for “a generational buyer who has deep ties to Nantucket,” said Gammill.
