A long bucolic drive leads to this private hilltop retreat sited on a quiet end‐of‐the‐road location. The unique, custom‐built contemporary home occupies 18.94+ acres of lawn, gardens and mature woodlands. This sophisticated home, designed by its only owners, features an open floor plan, floor‐to ceiling windows and doors offering exceptional light and views as well as access to outdoor balconies onthree sides of the house.
The house offers one-level living with clean lines, concrete walls and exposed web trusses creating an industrial warehouse feel juxtaposed with surrounding nature.
Upon arrival a sense for the peaceful setting is immediate.
A man-made stone dipping pond and Zen-garden are the perfect welcome.
The main house features a inviting, sunlit atrium with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, an open kitchen with skylight.
There is a living room and dining room with a wood-burning stove and access to the balconies, a three-season yoga/sleeping porch, two bedrooms, two-full baths and a laundry room.
Attached via a deck at the rear of the house is a three-story tower currently used for storage on the lower level and two home offices above.
The top floor of the tower is reached via an exterior spiral staircase and has distant ocean views over the tree tops.
Also included is an oversized three-car-garage with workshop and storage space.
The property represents a rare opportunity to own a dramatic home on large acreage just minutes to the village of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Singing Beach and the commuter rail.
