A compound overlooking Nantucket Harbor has taken the crown as the most expensive residential property in Massachusetts history.

20-22 Berkeley Road traded hands June 30 for a a whopping $38,127,500 according to a deed filed in the Nantucket Registry of Deeds. The sale was first reported by the Nantucket Current.

Marybeth Gilmartin-Baugher, Nantucket Advisory Group co-founder and a Compass agent, had the listing. The $13.4 million mortgage was provided by Goldman Sachs.

Until now, the most expensive single-family sale had been 21 Lincoln Ave., on the opposite side of Nantucket’s village center from the Berkeley Road Property, which sold last year for $36 million. The most expensive condominium sale in state history remains the Millennium Tower penthouse in Boston, which sold for $35 million when brand-new in 2016 and has since been re-listed for $45 million on and off since 2018.

“Beam Ends,” as 20-22 Berkeley Road is known, sits on 3.56 acres and holds an 8,849-square-foot, four-bed, 4.5-bath main house built in 2008, a 2,126-square-foot guest house built in 1930 and a 1,418-square-foot combination garage-and-guest-quarters also built in 2008 according to town property records. The listing boasts of direct beach access and privacy afforded by the large parcel the compound sits on.
