Welcome to the Breakers at 42 Easton Street, redefining what it means to live by land and by sea.

Among Nantucket’s finest waterfront residences, 42 Easton Street stands as an irreplaceable asset on prestigious Brant Point. One of the rarest properties on the island, 42 Easton Street is a dual-residence compound completely rebuilt in 2007, and one of only fifteen homes with private dockage located within a half mile of beloved Main Street. This property is offered as a family compound, or separately as two incredible residences. Each residence offers over ten thousand square feet with an expansive harbor-side deck, eight generous bedrooms, nine full baths, one half bath, one carriage house and garage. Almost every room in these exceptional island homes affords a water view. The brick entry courtyard is bordered by beautiful stone work and colorful, captivating flower beds.

The grounds are further accentuated by an intimate harbor-side, low-maintenance manicured lawn, and a rare fifty-foot dock with the capacity for two boats. Remarkably, the big water views, scale and amenities of a large home are uniquely paired on the Easton Street location with the convenience, manageability, access and intimacy of in-town living. Home built by Frisbie Group. Listing offered by Lee Real Estate. For more information, visit frisbiegroup.com/42easton.

3 Philadelphia Harbor Marine Scene by James Hamilton in a Gold Leaf Frame circa 1819- 1878. This beautiful oil on canvas painting is surrounded by raised paneling and hangs above a custom colonial fireplace with meticulously crafted dentilated molding. Historic details like these punctuate both residences, and remain expertly juxtaposed against contemporary living spaces, including an open style family room and gourmet kitchen with harbor views.

4 Stunningly vivid Cantonese – Chinese Export porcelain from the early trade routes between China and the Americas adorns the floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry, designed with raised panel inset doors on a beaded frame.

5 Nathaniel Currier’s 1852 hand colored lithograph of Cutter Yacht “Maria” by Frances Flora Bond Palmer after J.E. Butterworth’s original painting. Beautiful works like these harken back to Nantucket’s famous whaling era.
