Perched upon an elevated almost ten-acre bay front parcel sits an exceptionally rare offering in 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. In the entry hall you are greeted with sweeping views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Step-down into the formal loggia for entertaining; a wood-burning fireplace provides warmth and cheer. In the east-wing of the house is a stately living room with lovely built-ins and a Dutch door opening onto a cozy sun room overlooking the bay, lawn, and swimming pool.
In the west-wing is an entertainer's dream dining room with seating for twelve or more, a fireplace, a built-in mirrored china cabinet and dutch-door to gardens. Through a classic butler's pantry with a sink and shelving is a large, open concept kitchen with commercial-sized refrigerators, island and casual TV/family room with a breakfast nook. A set of back-stairs provide easy access to the second-floor.
An elevator and grand staircase with double-landings in the entry hall leads to a bright second-floor gallery. Two large guest bedrooms each have their own baths providing luxurious accommodations for guests. A central master bedroom with en-suite bath and two separate dressing rooms enjoys stunning water views. In the west-wing are two overflow guest bedrooms each with their own baths, second-floor laundry, and an outdoor second-floor deck overlooking the rose garden and water. There is an unfinished third-floor providing ample storage with the possibility of a conversion to additional living spaces.
A detached carriage house with garage has 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.
