Taking its name from the Italian colloquial expression for blissful relaxation, the estate known as Far Niente is a rare retreat on the water in Cape Cod, offering views unparalleled elsewhere on that rarified peninsula. Epitomizing the elegance and charm of New England, the four-bedroom home was designed by American architectural firm of Royal Barry Wills, lauded for their mastery of the Cape Cod–style home. Lovingly maintained, it boasts superior-quality construction, a pitched gabled roofline with timeless shingles, two stately chimneys, whimsical oval windows, and other hallmarks and embellishments of the region’s quintessential style. The 5,900-square-foot residence is filled with classical features, from wainscoting and crown molding to warmly hued hardwood floors and a delightful stairway with spindle balusters, newel posts, and finials. Nearly every major room is introduced by an eye-catching archway, and while ceilings soar to airy heights, the ambience is warm, comfortable, and inviting. The light-filled living room features a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and a sitting nook in a windowed bay; in an ideal configuration for elegant entertaining, the formal dining room adjoins. The home offers additional space for living, entertaining, and relaxing on an enchanting covered wraparound porch and a generous brick patio. The kitchen includes high-caliber appliances, an island, generous cabinets, and an adjoining family room. On the upper level, three bedrooms feature sitting areas, and the master bedroom includes a private rooftop deck designed for appreciation of the enviable views. A family room with a full bath is tucked above the two-car garage. The location, on desirable Sea View Avenue, is both quiet and coveted. The 1.06-acre property encompasses 300 feet of frontage on Cape Cod along with a serene sandy beach and a deepwater dock—the ideal setting for appreciating sunsets and watching majestic seagoing vessels sail by.
