This Brant Point listing hit the market over the holiday weekend with a hefty $19,999,000 asking price and a front row seat to the latest media feeding frenzy, a brouhaha over Secretary of State John Kerry's Wednesday whereabouts. Anyone chilling on the harborfront wrap around porch of Auburn Cottage probably could have confirmed that Kerry, whose summer home is located just around the corner, was "briefly" aboard his 76-foot yacht Isabel, cruising Nantucket Sound as all hell broke loose in Egypt. The circa 1897 six bedroom overlooking Nantucket Harbor also features a sandy beach, mooring rights and bragging rights - it's one of only 13 waterfront residences on Easton Street and destined for our map of the Cape and Islands priciest listings.
