Faraway in oyster harbors
Barnstable, MA, USA US $16,500,000
Perched upon an elevated almost ten-acre bay front parcel sits an exceptionally rare offering in arguably the finest location of Oyster Harbors. ''Faraway,'' as it is known, evokes the elegance of a bygone era and features commanding vistas of Cotuit Bay, Sampson's Island, Nantucket Sound, and on the horizon, Martha's Vineyard.
Stately manicured grounds include sweeping lawns on all sides, a rose garden, gated swimming pool, and a wooden staircase along the breakwater down to a deep-water dock large enough for a substantial yacht.Tastefully updated over the course of 40-plus years of single-family ownership, the main home has been meticulously maintained and almost all rooms enjoy a water view. In the entry hall you are greeted with sweeping views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Step-down into the formal loggia for entertaining; a wood-burning fireplace provides warmth and cheer. In the east-wing of the house is a stately living room with lovely built-ins and a Dutch door opening onto a cozy sun room overlooking the bay, lawn, and swimming pool.
