A truly unparalleled offering, this waterfront estate is a piece of Cape Cod history. The property consists of a 10-bedroom main home, a pool house, a 3-bedroom guesthouse, and a 2-bedroom carriage house. The grounds feature nature trails winding through native flora, stone paths leading to more than 600' of private shoreline, lovely landscaping with an extensive lighting system, a swimming pool and spa, and tennis court—all with views of the Wings Neck Lighthouse, osprey nests, and the ocean waters of Buzzard’s Bay.

Constructed with materials that were state of the art for the period, the iconic Shingle-style main residence has been painstakingly rejuvenated, with particular attention paid to preserving the home’s history and irreplaceable vintage style. A sense of enduring grandeur is immediately apparent, with deeply hued wide-plank hardwoods, French doors admitting glorious natural light, and classical moldings and millwork signifying the elegance and quality of a bygone era. The kitchen, baths, windows, fixtures, and mechanical systems have been thoughtfully updated. Just off the spacious entry hall in the main residence is an office with dark wood ceiling beams and wall paneling, tall windows, and built-in bookshelves. The light-flooded living room features a coffered ceiling, oversized windows with an ocean view, a fireplace, and built-in glass-front cabinets. Through a set of French doors lies a delightful sunroom with walls of glass perfect for gazing across the lush grounds to the water. Also adjoining the sunroom is a warm, welcoming study or media room with rich wood-framed brick fireplace. Designed for refined entertaining, the sophisticated formal dining room has hardwood floors, distinctive ceiling beams, a fireplace, classically detailed wainscoting, and a vista of the bay. Steps away is the bright kitchen, which includes top-tier stainless-steel appliances, a farm sink beneath a triple window overlooking the water, a wet bar with a liquor cabinet created from the kitchen’s original multi-chamber cooking stove, and a charming breakfast area with a built-in banquette. In a nod to the home’s provenance, the original dryer—one of the first in America—has been converted into a pantry cabinet. A grand stairway rises to the upper levels and the private quarters. Each of the 10 bedrooms is peaceful—with hardwood floors, timeless detailing, and wonderful natural light throughout—and many of the 9 baths retain vintage fixtures and finishes. French doors give way from the entry hall to a covered brick-paved patio with stately columns. Steps away is an arbored pergola with a fire pit and an enviable outlook, an ideal spot for reveling in the serene natural surroundings. Beyond, an impressive expanse of emerald lawn unfolds toward the shorefront.

The carriage house offers garaging for 3 cars, a powder room, fitness and tackle rooms, storage, an open-plan living and kitchen area, two bedrooms, and a full bath. The newer pool house includes bright, airy living, dining, and kitchen space; a three-quarter bath; a breezy covered porch; an outdoor shower; and a fenced lawn area with a small dining patio and a stone-clad grilling area. The four-level, 2,587-square-foot guest residence features a versatile basement; living, dining, and kitchen areas enjoying access to three inviting decks; three bedrooms and two full baths; and an enchanting upper-level sitting room with built-in seating and glass-railed balcony affording an idyllic vista.

The grounds are abundant with grass, flowering plants, and mature trees. Paths link each residence and lead to a tennis court with a viewing pavilion. Careful planning has rendered the estate self-sufficient, with three new wells, underground propane tanks with up to six months’ capacity, and an estate-wide backup generator. The Wings Neck Trust community offers two association beaches, a dock, a sailing club, and acres of conservation land.
