Behold, the most expensive house to sell on Nantucket this year. The Brant Point property, located within sugar-borrowing distance of the summer spread belonging to Secretary of State John Kerry and Teresa Heinz Kerry, hit the market in March for a whopping $28,500,000, making it the island's second priciest listing. By April, the waterfront manse was already in contract and now, just three months after its market debut, 3 Hulbert Avenue has sold for a hefty $26,500,000.
Yup, that's what you get for $26,500,000, at least as far as things go 30 miles out to sea off the coast of Massachusetts. To refresh, the 7BR, 8.5BA house was built in 1920 and consists of 16 rooms in 8,136 square feet. Here's how the listing sums up the .71 acre waterfront spread:
Superior setting on Nantucket's most desirable waterfront. Large main house is in excellent condition, with ample common spaces for family and entertaining, living room, dining room, sun room, family room, and office. Gracious entry foyer with dramatic main staircase. 6 bedrooms all with ensuite baths, 2 on the main floor and 4 on the 2nd floor. Dramatic views of the harbor channel from most all rooms creates an ever changing harborscape. Over sized lot with attractive outdoor spaces, including decks and porches. Elevator to second floor. Full stairs to roof walk for easy access. 2 car garage with 1 bedroom apartment. Beach and boat mooring at your doorstep.
