Priciest Summer Rental; Nantucket's First Whale; More!

It's now time for the weekly word from the sunniest blog in New England, Curbed Cape Cod!

CAPE & ISLANDS—Lots of changes to our map of the 20 most expensive listings since the stay-ahead-of-the-tax-man home sales surge of December.

NANTUCKET—Here now, the first real estate whale of Nantucket, Joseph Starbuck (no relation, that we know of, to the coffee chain or the Battlestar Galactica character, but likely known to Herman Melville).
