One of the most exclusive estates in New England sold in 2017 after three years on the market and more than $14 million in reductions. The sprawling shingle style beach house was designed by famed architect Robert A.M. Stern and built in 2007 on a spectacular 10 acre property above Buzzards Bay. When it hit the market in 2014 for $25 million it took the crown as the most expensive property in all of Massachusetts. Randy Correll, project partner, discussed the project on Robert A.M. Stern’s project page, “The site — a peninsula that extends two-and-a-half miles into Buzzards Bay — speaks for itself. In fact, the bunker of a World War II U.S. Navy surveillance station remains buried on the property!” The nearly 22,000 square foot residence showcases a staggered pair of haystack gables with covered porches atop stonewalls wrapping three exposed facades. “The entry is framed by a single-story service wing to the east, and a lighthouse-like tower anchors the composition to the west. The lower level of the house is designed for entertaining, with a bowling alley, games room, and a boat bar connected to the wine cellar by a ‘hall of fishes.’ On the second floor, the master suite occupies the west gable and guest bedrooms face south and east. The tower is perhaps the most striking exterior feature of the property and encloses a distinctive space at each level: a wine cellar in the stone base; the library, ringed by a bracketed balcony, at the main level; and, beneath the bell-shaped dome of the turret, the master study with its inset porch.” The 10 acre property is complete with over 1,500 feet of water frontage, a deep water dock, swimming pool and matching 4,000 square foot guest house with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
