It’s time to start thinking of your trip to the beach! A prime ocean view is a bit of an obligation. Given the price of oceanview property, which of course, they aren’t making any more of, the onus is on the builder and architect to craft a home that is both livable and delivers on the promise of a jaw-dropping vista.
Jerusalem Road in Cohasset on Massachusetts’ South Shore has many homes that capture the classic look of a New England estate. Cohasset is a charming seaside town that offers many of the benefits of nearby Cape Cod but without as much of the tourist traffic (and no long wait to cross the bridge). This home, freshly built this year by Patrick Ahearn Architect and Fabrizio Construction, is a custom collaboration on a shingle style masterpiece with ocean views from 15 of 19 rooms!
The five-bedroom home offers 8200 square feet of indoor/outdoor living with 2900 sf of outdoor living space on three levels and an octagonal gazebo (probably not of much use this time of year but absolutely glorious once the summer returns). Twelve sets of French doors are perfectly placed to capture in order to offer more oceanview deliciousness.
The spacious and inviting custom kitchen reflects the current trend for white kitchens with a marble-topped center island and a deluxe cooking area backed with subway tile. The kitchen opens out to the deck.
A full butler’s pantry connects the kitchen and dining room. Handmade millwork and custom built-ins including bookcases and a window seat reflect the attention to modern craftsmanship. Beadboard ceilings give the home a gently nautical feel.
The home has five ensuite bedrooms and the second floor master suite faces the ocean with four sets of French doors that open to a wraparound deck. The Tower room which crowns the house is its own private retreat with a kitchen, entertaining area and deck. Summer can’t get here fast enough.
This home is listed with Dean & Hamilton for $4.25 million.
