6 Elbow Lane, Nantucket, MA
Captain Valentine Aldrich House - The original portion of this home was believed to have been a union of two early Sconset fish houses. Moved to its current location by Valentine's father Ichabod Aldridge from Front Street in 1841 to prevent its demise due to bluff erosion after a large storm. This gem rests on an oversized lot in a tucked away part of Sconset Village. The history combined with convenience, privacy, and a second dwelling make this property truly special.
First Floor: As you enter through the front door you can venture to the left through a charming dining room with exposed beams and newly pointed fireplace. To the right is a cozy living room with a wet bar that opens up to the rear patio. A hallway with a powder room transition you into the newer part of the home. A kitchen with a small eat-in table open up to two patios on either side. A large pantry also doubles as a laundry room. At the rear of the home is the master bedroom which is ensuite with its own bathroom, two closets, and cathedral ceilings over the bed.
Second Floor: Up an antique stair case two bedrooms share a hallway bathroom with a soaking tub.
Basement: A full basement underneath the new portion of the home houses mechanicals for the property and is accessed via a trap door in the kitchen.
