Property description

Spectacular private estate hidden on the manicured grounds of the historic Fernbrook Estate. This unique property was designed in the 1880s by the world renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead. The secluded compound is perfect for all occasions from family vacations to romantic getaways and boasts endless activities for everyone! The property consists of a Main House, Guest House and Boat House which have been completely renovated and offer 5 bedrooms with 4 full and 1 half bath all hidden down a long tree lined driveway with stone pillars a very short walk to Craigville Beach, Four C's and the Candy Store. The main house features 3 en-suite bedrooms, large open plan great room with fireplace, chef's kitchen, 12 seat dining table, cozy TV den/office off the kitchen and game room with a huge deck overlooking the private back lawn. The white bead board cottage consists of 2 bedrooms, large bath and changing area with extra refrigerator for pool side snacks. The sliders open onto a 40 foot long deck overlooking the heated in-ground pool. The Boat House is a classic diamond windowed playroom with storage for kayaks/fishing poles/Foosball/air hockey and bikes located down a white shell path along the shoreline of the heart shaped lily pond. Feel free to take our 5 kayaks to the creek or the beach. Lush landscaping and enormous fenced backyard, sun-drenched swimming pool and multiple outdoor dining and lounging areas compliment the open and airy feel of this private compound. A one of a kind, breathtakingly beautiful vacation home to create lifetime memories of carefree entertaining and easy living completely removed (yet right in the middle of) the Cape Cod vacation scene. Your children can play and swim all day at the beach or in your pool, swing on a 45 foot rope swing over the pond, play tether ball, ping pong, foozball, Ms Pac-Man, backyard lacrosse goals and bounceback, basketball hoop, fish in the pond and more, all in secluded privacy, yet still only a short walk to Craigville Beach, world famous Four Seas Ice Cream, the classic Cape Cod 1856 Penny Candy Store, newly renovated kids adventure playground and park, town library and Centerville museum. Centerville sits on a peninsula overlooking Nantucket Sound and was once home to wealthy ship captains who built estate homes in the early 1800's. Located between historic Hyannisport and quaint Osterville with great boutiques, classic Cape Cod restaurants and terrific gourmet food shops like Fancy's and Lambert's.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We fell in love with this property the minute we drove through the old stone pillars. Our lives are all about family and friends and enjoying time together and this magical property has a way of making all those memories just that much more special. Our family has been spending summers at the Cape for many years, our kids grew up here during the summer and we look hope you will enjoy this magical property as much as our family does!

Why the Owner Chose Centerville:
The FernBrook property is unique in its history with the heart shaped gardens and lily pond having been designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, who also designed Central Park. We love the combination of serenity, specimen plantings, privacy and endless activities for the kids. If the beach is too windy or cold the kids love coming home and jumping in the heated pool, or flying over the pond on the huge tree swing, while mom is relaxing pool side with a good book.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Every day the view is different over the pond and the house while centrally located is extremely private with a front and rear entrance off of two different streets. Having the 2 bedroom Guest Cottage is a nice advantage if two families are staying or if the kids want to invite friends for a sleepover.
