Listed by Lanse Robb
A 4.6± acre coastal estate with 650 feet of water frontage along the Ipswich River. The property encompasses a beautifully restored c1905 arts and crafts residence complete with today’s modern amenities, a new guest house, and thoughtfully designed gardens that overlook the water and conservation land.
The 4,400± square foot home was meticulously renovated with quality materials from around the world and all new systems.
The house has a chef’s kitchen with built-in breakfast nook, fireplaced living room, exquisite sycamore and oak paneled library, master bedroom suite, and magnificent sleeping porches, all with views of the river.
The property grounds are comprised of specimen trees, rolling lawns, and gardens, and outdoor terraces with direct access to the river.
An original and working Lord & Burnham greenhouse, and an imported gazebo accent this outdoor oasis.
The newly built guest house built to compliment the arts and crafts style has a two-car garage and living quarters above. Surrounded by nature's beauty this is truly a quiet oasis, the ultimate coastal getaway.
