Poised on the highest point of the Little Ram peninsula on 7.6 acres, this beautiful 23,000-square-foot waterfront home—currently on the market for $28.5 million—gives its residents and guests the fantastic option of arriving by way of seaplane.
The residence—which touts a total of ten bedrooms, nine full baths, and three powder rooms, all boasting splendid water views—also features a domed octagonal garden room; a formal dining room; a fifty-foot living room with beamed coffered ceilings; and an oak-paneled library/billiard room, plus a Christopher Peacock-designed gourmet kitchen.
Located on one of the most pristine harbors in the northeast (with over fifty percent of its shoreline preserved), the property features a large rolling lawn that gradually slopes down to the estate's private beach, as well as the deep-water dock and moorings positioned just off shore. Among the listings other highlights are a heated gunite pool, slate patios, and a separate hot tub with seating deck. A sunken tennis court and separately-housed international squash court also provide additional recreation space.
The residence's lower level is comprised of a full gym, spa/treatment rooms, an eight-seater sauna, and an egress that leads to a private garden. A professional disco outfitted with a lounge, a bar, and a killer sound system by Steve Dash doubles as a movie theater, while the home's wine room offers a dining space fit for up to ten.
The traditional home's classic design and grand yet intimate scale are conveyed via architectural components reminiscent of the late 19th century elements of architect Stanford White. Its exquisite details include antique stone accents, white oak baked floors, plastered walls, murals, ceiling and wood finishes.
