Set upon the beautiful rocky coast of Swampscott, there can be no denying the sheer impact of this inspirational property. Sporting a stunning Mediterranean design, this oceanfront home boasts an ideal location steps from Eisman’s Beach, striking living and entertainment spaces, and breathtaking views of the coast and the Boston skyline from virtually every room. Presented by Realtor/Partner Shari Sagan McGuirk of Sagan Harborside Sotheby’s International Realty, it lists for $3,400,000.

“This home, which has been lovingly maintained by the current owners for more than 40 years, provides a rare opportunity to live directly on the ocean. They brought a piece of Italy back with them and have enjoyed hosting friends on the expansive red tiled deck overlooking the ocean,” she says. “The family has many fond memories of spending time together basking in the views of the rocky coast while feeling the ocean breeze and hearing the sounds of the waves below.”

Wooden gates open to a commanding circular drive featuring a decorative fountain and a grand flight of stone stairs. Step through the front door to find gorgeous rooms including a living room with a white stone fireplace and sliders; a formal dining room with parquet floors; and an expansive family room heightened by beamed ceilings with eight skylights, a wood burning fireplace, glass sliders, and an attached greenhouse. Sure to delight the aspiring chef, the gourmet kitchen is well-appointed with generous white cabinetry, granite counter tops, a Viking six-burner gas stove, a Sub Zero refrigerator, and a spacious breakfast nook. Perhaps most spectacular however, is the appropriately named “ocean room” – a jaw-dropping space wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass and perched high above the sea for the most spectacular views.

A graceful master suite features two closets, an elegant marble bath, and sliders to an oceanfront deck. Rounding off this level are two more bedrooms with double closets and hardwood floors, a fourth bedroom currently used as a den, a convenient laundry room, and two and a half additional bathrooms. The added bonus of a lower level brings the fourth full bath, generous storage, and access to the attached two-car tandem garage.

Additionally, this home offers central air conditioning with two compressors, forced hot water fueled by gas, and a manicured tiered backyard with lush gardens, mature plantings, and a storage shed.

“Swampscott is the perfect seaside community just 20 minutes north of Boston and with its dramatic ocean side setting, there are so many places to relax while enjoying the ocean views and changing seasons,” says McGuirk. “Also, the home’s floor plan lends itself to many different types of buyers such as those looking for a waterfront lifestyle, empty nesters looking for one-level living, professionals who want to be close to the city, or people who love an expansive place in which to entertain.”
