Historic Furber House On The Market For First Time In Centuries

Share this Post!

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 four-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 and yard on both the east and west sides of the house.


Opportunities abound with almost 700 square feet of ground cover that remains as well as the opportunity to rebuild the garage with a studio above. 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, one of two parlor rooms, and greeted by lots of natural light. The interior decor and layout are very traditional and typical of a house of this age and style.

Pass through the front two parlors to the formal dining room to the middle of the house where the kitchen is centrally located. Off the kitchen is the side entrance, mudroom, covered side porch. A second stairwell leads to the second-floor bedrooms. Off the rear of the house 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 good light and are of nice size. Between the back two bedrooms is the second stairwell leading to the kitchen.
