Avoid Cape Cod traffic and spend your summer in the most beautiful place on earth.
Our home is a rare early 19th century whaling captain’s house in the historic village of Westport Point. While impeccably preserved, the house has been sensitively modernized for today’s era - the perfect marriage of old and new. As you walk through the front entryway you will notice the owners’ collection of graceful antiques, original artwork, and high-quality modern pieces. Refinished original hardwood floors lead you through a smoothly flowing floor plan with cooling cross-breezes in the summer and passive solar heating in the winter. There are four working wood burning fireplaces throughout the house, original horsehair plaster walls, and handcrafted touches from yesterday and today throughout; the woodwork and mouldings are considered by local craftsmen to be some of the best on the South Coast of Massachusetts.
Lovingly restored to include updates by a high-end local architect, the house features a modern master bedroom/bath with a Tempurpedic mattress, vaulted ceilings, and a striking view of sunrise over the Eastern Branch of the Westport river.
The gourmet eat-in kitchen features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking range, and ample counter top food preparation space.
The expansive, private wrap-around porch with its white wooden rocking chairs is the perfect place to enjoy a late afternoon drink or a shared meal with friends. An alley of stately Copper Beech trees, brought over as saplings from England over a century ago, define an immaculately-maintained three-acre yard with mature plantings, flower gardens, raspberries in late July, and a quiet contemplative pond. The yard is a private sanctuary on Westport Point - unique as the property is protected from the prevailing winds yet just a short walk to the historic maritime docks of Westport Point, and just a few minutes drive to the best beaches in New England.
This house has only two owners since the 1940s and has been in our family for 35 years. We love it deeply and look forward to sharing it with you.
