If I had a vacation home on the water like this, I’d never leave! Designed by noted architect Robert A.M. Stern and featured on the cover of a book about his work, it’s now on the market in Massachusetts. Take a look…
I could totally picture Victoria Grayson living here. The listing says, “This spectacular landmark property known as Seapoint Estate stretches south into Buzzards Bay on nearly 10 acres on the end of a peninsula.”
“Deep covered porches run the length of both sides of the house, and every room of this stately retreat has an ocean view, many with 270 degree vistas.” Ahhh…
“Truly the epitome of Stern’s best work, this home is on the cover of the latest book on his builds, Designs for Living: Houses by Robert A.M. Stern Architects released in 2014 by The Monacelli Press.”
“Exquisite architectural features include masterfully crafted pieces throughout, from a 6 ton stone-and-driftwood fireplace by Lew French of Martha’s Vineyard, to the bulls-eye glass windows by a noted Kentucky glass artist.”
“The dining room boasts an intricate inter-locking rope motif by Marshall Southern of Los Angeles on the hand-finished flooring, and a custom chair rail carved by Massachusetts artisan, Bruce Volz.”
“The library offers a special retreat with vaulted ‘Octopus’ mahogany beamed ceiling designed by Stern’s team, and this distinctive circular room offers 270 degree views of the Bay.”
Even the bowling alley is pretty!
“External amenities include over 1,500 feet of water frontage, an ocean-front infinity pool surrounded by imported slate from Jerusalem, a custom built hot tub, and deep water dock, all of which offer unparalleled privacy and luxury.”
“The spectacular pool area is accessed through an inviting cabaña, complete with stone fireplace, changing rooms and exquisite views of the Bay.”
Heck, I’d be perfectly happy to live in the three-bedroom guest house down the lane…
The property is listed with Robert B. Kinlin of Robert Paul Properties. For more photos and information, check the Seapoint Estate website and Facebook page. Visit Robert A.M. Stern Architects for more information about their work.
