Tuckernuck Life Saving Station-Turned-Beach Cottage Is Yours for $1,850,000


Behold, a rare treat of adaptive reuse, a beach cottage and Tuckernuck Island all in one brand new listing.

Tuckernuck is a 900-acre island that sits just west of Nantucket and is privately-owned by its summer residents. The circa 1850 "Tuckernuck Humane House" was the island's original life saving station and is now a 1BR, 1BA beach cottage with "privacy, unobstructed ocean views and luxury." The listing doesn't include interior photos, but here's the floorplan (PDF!) and what the brokerbabble promises:

Enter a tiled foyer with natural pine wood walls which lead to the laundry facilities and full bathroom with tiled shower and marble double vanity. Stairwell to the loft area. The great room features all white wood walls, cathedral ceiling and gorgeous wide-plank wood floors. Open kitchen with center Island, dining and living room with wood stove and South-facing double french doors which open to expose the most spectacular, unobstructed ocean views. Loft area with Queen bed.Sounds swoon-worthy, right? In addition to the 20'x40' cottage, the 6.33-acre property also includes a 15'x20' garage with a basement for the mechanicals, generator and batteries. If that doesn't float your boat, there are HDC-approved plans for a larger 6-bedroom home and barn. Asking price is $1,850,000.
UPDATED: New listing photos added.
