Property Details

 

From its stone pillared front gate welcoming one to over seven-acres of waterfront privacy, to its private deep water dock and more than two additional acres of beachfront on Nantucket Sound, this extraordinary 1880’s-era manor provides all the comforts and amenities one would expect from a modern day world-class estate, while preserving the charm of yesteryear. The magnificent three-story main residence has been maintained in its classic Cape Cod shingle style and is accompanied by a spacious guest house, caretaker’s cottage and impressive pool pavilion. Altogether, over nine prized acres and approximately 17,000 square feet of living and enclosed recreation space in four structures comprise the compound.

Passing through lantern-capped stone gateposts and entering the estate’s motor court, one is instantly immersed in the ambiance of “home.” Impeccable yet casual landscaping, verdant lawns and mature trees create a perfect setting for the historic abode’s traditional design. The result is that idyllic union of luxury, leisurely living and ultimate contentment.

The main residence leaves no doubt that this is, indeed, a grand estate. Rich woods in the form of highly-polished wide- and narrow-plank floors; elegant crown molding, wainscoting and inlaid fireplace surrounds; coffered ceilings and other features all bespeak the absolute finest craftsmanship.

Sophistication and practicality seamlessly blend together throughout the home, where exquisite chandeliers and custom light fixtures from France are complimented by recessed lighting assuring just the right balance of drama and prudent sensibility.And while nature’s clean air and ideal weather are always preferred, this abode’s state-of-the-art HVAC system with HEPA filtration assures residents the highest environmental standards possible.

The estate’s visitors are guaranteed comfort and relaxed luxury in the two bedroom guest apartment in the main residence, the spacious two bedroom guest house, or the enchanted and spectacular pool pavilion. There, walls of glass provide unsurpassed views of Nantucket Sound and join with the expansive cathedral ceiling and massive exposed beams to create an ambiance of spaciousness and light. A self-contained oasis, the pavilion also offers a full kitchen, dual changing rooms and bath and a sizeable observation loft.

Whether one’s pleasure is a session in one of the estate’s two workout rooms, a day on the sugar sand beach, a sail from the private dock, a tasting in the climate-controlled wine cellar or simply a relaxing respite in the Ship’s Room with its breathtaking panoramic views of the Centerville River, Long Beach and Nantucket Sound, this unparalleled estate offers a lifetime of happiness, contentment and the satisfaction of knowing one has, at last, arrived home.
