Seavista is an incredible architectural gem custom built in 2008 with the best of materials and finishes, designed with meticulous care to resemble turn of the century estate cottages along the Eastern Seaboard in areas such as Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Bar Harbour.

Enjoy this breathtaking view from the huge 1100 square foot wrap-around covered verandah. Sit for awhile, relax, enjoy a cool drink, listen to the rustle of the breeze through the trees as you breathe deeply the refreshing sea air as gulls swoop and glide low over the water.
Upon entering the spacious thirteen foot by fifteen entrance foyer you know you’ve discovered something special. The attention to detail and quality of finish is evident from the moment you walk through the door with built-ins, crown moldings, interior transom windows over doorways, eleven foot ceilings (on all floors) and raised panel wainscoting. A convenient Carrera marble powder room is located off the foyer. Straight ahead is a beautiful large flex room with ocean views, crown moulding, wood-burning fireplace and marble surround.

This is just a taste of what’s to come! Up the turned hardwood staircase with wainscoting and mahogany treads we come to the main level of the home, elevated to truly appreciate the panoramic view. The comfortable great room (26′ x 33′) with wood-burning fireplace (with electric wood-lift) and built-in bookcases is open concept with the sun room, dining area, second guest Carrera marble powder room and custom kitchen.

Appliances are the highest quality Wolfe and Viking brands all included satisfying the most discriminating home chef in you! The breakfast room area of the kitchen enjoys huge windows overlooking the water. If you’d enjoy an outdoor meal alfresco style, simply stroll across the terracotta tiled adjoining sunroom through the French garden doors to the balcony beyond overlooking the property and the water. Here you can entertain in style with comfortable great room seating, dine in front of the natural crackle of the fireplace and enjoy after dinner drinks on the balcony as you watch the sun set over the water. The home chef will be the center of it all with this open concept layout, master of his/her domain!

The wind may howl outside but you’ll be comfy and cosy in this glorious home until the storm passes.
