A sprawling nearly 10 acre waterfront estate on Cotuit Bay in Barnstable, Massachusetts has sold for $13.75 million after sitting on the market since April 2019 for $16.5 million. The rare offering is arguably the finest location of Oyster Harbors. ‘Faraway,’ as it is known, evokes the elegance of a bygone era and features commanding vistas of Cotuit Bay, Sampson’s Island, Nantucket Sound, and on the horizon, Martha’s Vineyard. Stately manicured grounds include sweeping lawns on all sides, a rose garden, gated swimming pool, and a wooden staircase along the breakwater down to a deep-water dock large enough for a substantial yacht. Tastefully updated over the course of 40+ years of single-family ownership, the main home has been meticulously maintained and almost all rooms enjoy a water view. A detached carriage house with garage, two guest bedrooms, a full kitchen, bathroom, and a common area complete this offering. ‘Faraway’ is an original Oyster Harbors property, the perfect waterfront estate ideal for high level entertaining, private family functions and the most discerning of buyers.
