Like most Cape Cod towns, Brewster is full of history. First populated in 1656, wealthy sea captains soon erected marvelous mansions that would last for centuries to come. Now acting as some of the town’s most popular B&Bs and Inns, these buildings serve as a reminder of Brewster’s past and set the standard of excellence for Brewster’s present and future.
Sitting on the “upper bicep” of the Cape, Brewster sits directly on the ocean. This makes for warm, sunny beaches perfect for everything from sun bathing to boating! Brewster has a Bay with several landings, making it the perfect spot for an afternoon of boating. Brewster also has quite the reputation when it comes to other water sports. Fisherman, take note: This town is home to the biggest largemouth bass ever caught—in the entire world!
If water sports aren’t your thing, Brewster has loads of other outdoor (and indoor) activities! Home to the largest National Park on the Cape, a simple walk around the town can lift one’s spirits. The lovely architecture and populous beaches are enough to put a smile on anyone’s face.

It's impossible to over-express the historic value of this home when one considers its extraordinary past and legacy. If you consider yourself a preservationist, one with respect for a home's provenance, then you will appreciate this property immensely. Two small homes were moved from another island location to this lot in 1897 then, a few years later, cleverly joined together to create one larger home, so typical of Yankee thrift and ingenuity. Situated defiantly on Brant Point, making a statement to those who succumbed to modernization and change, she peers out across the inner harbor proudly proclaiming her rebellious nature to thousands of tourists every day. Decades of the original owner's descendants have cared more about enjoying the home and its prime location than keeping up with prevailing trends. This home is one of the most authentic, textbook "Old Nantucket" homestead available on the island and represents a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own an iconic island landmark.
