Property Description

From the moment you pass through the gated entrance and begin your journey up the long, winding drive you can already tell this is a special property before you even catch a glimpse of the exterior. Boasting 15,000+ sq. ft, and 4+ wooded acres to ensure privacy, this home is an entertainer's dream. Extensive modernization efforts were undertaken in 1996 including a second story, pool, spa, patio bar, and 5 car garage. John Regas, a well-known Interior Designer, curated the interior which extensively features marble and Birdseye maple. Additional special features include a waterfall, elevator, & completely self-contained lower level with a second kitchen, media room, full bar, exercise room, and guest quarters. One-of-a-kind features include the indoor waterfall and elevator on the inside, and a private pond and stunning expansive wooded grounds boasting mature trees and ample privacy. This property represents the perfect marriage of historically significant and timeless Architecture with modern design and amenities & sits ready for the most discerning of buyers to make it their own! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history while obtaining one of the most opulent parcels in the entire North Shore for an exceptional price, well below market value!!
