Maury People/Sotheby's International Realty Lists Historic Nantucket Home

Posted by Teri Borseti — January 25, 2007

NANTUCKET -- In 1837, prosperous whaling merchant Joseph Starbuck of Nantucket began construction on three Federal style homes for his sons. Business was good, the island was booming and the houses cost $9,000 to build.On a street lined with beautiful historic properties, the regal homes stand as a testament to that period. Located within walking distance of downtown's shops, restaurants and the ferry dock, the houses are still referred to as East Brick, Middle Brick and West Brick by locals.In 170 years East Brick has had only 10 owners, the most recent being Mark Goldweitz of Garrison Square Management in Boston. Goldweitz, who has a house of his own on the island, has a passion for restoring historic gems. When he learned East Brick was for sale, he couldn't resist buying it.Today the house has not only been historically restored, it's been seamlessly brought into the 21st century -- and it is on the market for $11.85 million."This was a large project and a lot of work, but it isn't the first one I've completed on Nantucket," Goldweitz said. The historic house is listed with Maury People/Sotheby's International Realty on Main Street in Nantucket.For the entire article from the Boston Business Journal, click here.
