The anchor of the estate is a red brick English manor-inspired mansion with five bedrooms and seven baths across 20,000 sq. ft. of interiors. Tudor flourishes and a complex roofline with Victorian-style chimney stacks and a cupola; it dates to 1994, and sprawls into an L-shaped footprint that gives it well-defined wings. It’s a majestic house, and one that fits its landscape and the local history quite well for a recent addition. It’s also a work-in-progress, and for sale mid-renovation.
Aside from a slam-bang double-height foyer with matte-finished checkerboard marble tile and a sweeping floating staircase with an ornate balustrade, the interiors of the house are surprisingly unpretentious. Overall, the home as it presently stands shows off a refined cottage style that’s heavy on the bright white and soft blues and greens, with plank and parquet floors given only a little enhancement at finishing for a more natural look. Fireplaces various and sundry, built-in bookshelves, and the odd window seat overlooking the harbor help express the home’s living style.
The grounds swell to twenty-six acres, making the property one of the most extraordinary in the area. A three-bedroom companion guest house, a three-bedroom in-law or staff apartment, multiple swimming pools — including one indoors — and a bowling alley are the trimmings.
