Should you be in need of an au pair or in-law suite, a one-bedroom apartment on the ground level, complete with generous living room, kitchenette and patio, should fit the bill.
“The house was built 120 feet above sea level, so you actually have four floors, with each offering beautiful views,” says Dorsey. “Looking out over the treetops, you feel as though you’re flying. And, then, there are the snippets of the ocean where you can see as far out as Baker’s Island, Manchester and toward Marblehead.”
The grounds of this estate are equally spectacular, boasting stone outcroppings, breathtaking perennials, skillful landscaping, dramatic nighttime lighting and even a hidden tea garden and Victorian era stone steps. While completely private, this property is conveniently close to the Prides Crossing train station and Mingo Beach.
“Some may call this a formal home, but at the same time it is a bit whimsical with its ornamental details,” says the Realtor. “It is a beautiful and comfortable residence in a stunning setting.”
This amazing property is offered at $1,950,000. An open house is Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. at 16 Thissell St., Prides Crossing. For more information, see 16Thissell.com, or to arrange for a private viewing, call Peter Dorsey at 978-340-0661.
