This is a rare chance to own a house of historic significance on one of the oldest registered roads in Nantucket. The Furber House, named for Capt. Charles H. Furber, is one of the original eight residences on Academy Lane. This five-bedroom home was built with Federal and Greek Revival influences and maintains much of its original character. Situated on the corner of Academy and Westminster, this property features a garage, yard on both the east and west sides of the house. Truly a once in lifetime opportunity, this is the first time the home has been traded outside the family since its original owners in 1843.

First Floor

As you enter through the main entrance, you are directed to the front parlor, and greeted by lots of natural light. The interior is very traditional and typical of a house of this age and style. Pass through the front parlor to one of two first floor bedrooms. The formal dining room is in the middle of the house and the kitchen is centrally located. Off the kitchen is the side entrance, mudroom, covered side porch. A rear stairwell leads to the three second-floor bedrooms. Off the back of the kitchen is a first-floor en-suite master bedroom.

Second Floor

The front foyer stairwell leads you to the second floor where three bedrooms are located and a shared bathroom. All bedrooms have ample light and are of good proportion for a home of this age. Between the back two bedrooms is the second stairwell leading to the kitchen.
