'Union Jack' is a beautifully restored whaling captain’s home located in the heart of Nantucket’s historic district. Built in 1806 by house carpenter Lot Hinckley, this home features both authentic architectural details and the comforts of modern living. In addition to Union Jack's classic Nantucket style, the location can't be beat. The property is a few short blocks to Main Street where you will find shopping, restaurants, art galleries, a movie theatre, a library, the Whaling Museum and so much more. Best of all, Union Jack offers a spectacular water view from the widows walk, a private side yard, a rear flagstone patio, and the uncommon benefit of 3 off-street parking spaces (so you can enjoy the beach by day and town by night without the parking hassle). This property has an excellent rental history, making it a sound investment. There is also ground cover remaining should one wish to expand or add another dwelling.
