About Henry Sanford, Great Point Properties

We are life long Nantucket residents who work in real estate on island. We have been renting 'Lydia' for over three decades now, and used to own and operate the rest of Old North Wharf in the 1990s before selling off most of the properties and keeping Lydia. We continually update the house and recently put on a new roof, kitchen counters, and linens.

Henry Sanford, Great Point Properties purchased this cottage in 1950

Lydia offer's one of Nantucket's most unique locations. Old North Wharf is private, historic, and the harbor front yard is a rare gem. Two boat slips for vessels up to 32' with no more than a 4' draft can be docked out front and a private off street parking space with nightly security makes renting Lydia a great value. Romantic, classic, and convenient.

What makes this cottage unique

Off Street Parking, nightly security for the Wharf, two boat slips, and a peaceful yard on the harbor.



'Lydia' Cottage is located on Old North Wharf, the most private wharf on Nantucket. This fantastic location has two dock spaces, a harbor front yard, and a off street parking spot. A iconic location in the heart of Nantucket.
