This extraordinary estate in the prestigious area of Paine Avenue in Prides Crossing is a custom fit for the discriminating buyer. Built at the turn of the century, the three-story stucco mansion sits on over 2.5 beautifully landscaped acres perfectly elevated for the most magnificent ocean views imaginable. Complete with access to a private beach and nearly 7,000 square feet of luxurious living space, this rare offering is presented for sale by Mimi Pruett of J Barrett & Company for $4,750,000.
A commanding façade with a traditional covered porch serves as the perfect introduction to an interior filled with spectacular period details. The lovely large entrance hall ushers you in to a home featuring high ceilings, crown moldings, hardwood floors, seven wood burning fireplaces, and ocean views from nearly every room. On the main level, find a smart mix of formal and relaxed spaces that includes a cheerfully bright living room with a built-in window seat, a spacious dining room, and a cozy library with richly painted walls and floor-to-ceiling shelving. A family room with breakfast area and half bath flows thoughtfully into a gourmet kitchen beautifully furnished with generous white cabinetry, granite counter tops, high-end appliances, recessed lighting, and a center island with ample seating.
A period-appropriate staircase with intricately carved balusters leads to a second floor shared by five bedrooms including an over-sized master with sitting area, four full baths, and a home-office. A sixth bedroom is tucked privately away on the third level. Additionally, this home has a partially finished walk-out basement with an art studio and workshop, an ocean-facing flagstone patio, and a two-car detached heated garage.
While most would be more than happy to spend their leisure time on the beach, this property also boasts numerous walking paths and lovely perennial gardens filled with specimen trees and ornamental shrubbery.
“This special home has been more than just a place to live for its present owners,” says Pruett. “It has been an actual ‘life-style’”.
