This architectural delight in Manchester-by-the-Sea was clearly intended for uncomplicated, yet luxurious living. Affording the most magnificent views of the Atlantic and beyond, it comes complete with a private two-bedroom guest house, a sheltered patio with outdoor kitchen, and easy beach and tidal dock access. Listed by Coldwell Banker Agent Lynda Surdam, it is on the market for $3,975,000.

“This special property is the perfect spot from which to host friends and family either from the expansive ocean-facing deck for sunset gatherings, or inside where quality designer choices and high-end details abound throughout,” says the Realtor. “This masterpiece has it all!”

Smartly designed to take in the breathtaking scenery, both the living room and the fireplaced great room on the main level are enhanced by walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple French doors. These rooms are further enhanced by dramatic cathedral ceilings, hardwood flooring, and custom built-ins. A dining room is the perfect venue for formal gatherings, while the granite kitchen with center island and generous cabinetry lends itself to more casual meals perhaps. Should you be in need of a quiet space, there is also a cozy den complete with a brick fireplace and built-in bookcases. Rounding off this immense level is a sumptuous master bedroom highlighted by a vaulted ceiling, a walk-in custom closet with dressing area, a private balcony, and a lavish bath with double sinks, a soaking tub, and an over-sized glass shower. A secluded home office is one flight above.

A short flight of stairs brings you to the first floor where you will find three additional bedrooms, three full baths, a laundry/utility room, and a large family room with wall-to-wall carpeting and a wood burning fireplace.

 Sited on 1.27 professionally landscaped acres, this amazing waterfront offering also boasts central air conditioning, a convenient mudroom, a three-car garage, decorative outside lighting, a hot tub, and a backyard shower.

“The Full Super Moon over the marsh at full tide has been magical,” says Surdam. “This home really showcases its ocean frontage extensively, affording a seamless connection with the outdoors.”
