The Skinny: Homes in summer vacation getaways like Nantucket are typically sold in the summertime, when deep-pocketed buyers are most likely to be in town and the weather is usually cooperative, but this historic home was banking on an interesting backstory as it came to market this past week, on the cusp of winter. Built in 1920, the Gambrel-style cottage was moved to its present one-acre lot just last year. The move brought a top-to-bottom renovation that included the addition of a pair of balconies, and a widow's walk, the rooftop deck with 360-degree views of the island and harbor. Inside are six bedrooms, ten total bathrooms, a modern chef's kitchen, a wood-paneled office, and a top-floor rec room, while the manicured grounds contain a guest house, garage, and swimming pool. This unique blend of antique and modern is currently listed for nearly $15M, but that could change if a buyer fails to brave the island's blustery winter.
