Exemplifying coastal elegance, this 5-bedroom, 7,032-square-foot Shingle-style Cape estate enjoys an enviable perch on the banks of Megansett Harbor. Lush with green grass, perennial day lilies, and thriving trees and landscaping, the exceedingly private 2.68-acre property features more than 750' of water frontage, which affords expansive views from nearly every vantage point. At the end of a long drive, surrounded by flourishing mature trees, the home and its iconic style are introduced by timeless wood and cedar shingles; numerous divided light, bay, and Palladian windows with custom stained-glass detailing; and classical columns. From an architecturally striking designed foyer that features a tall ceiling, a glass chandelier, and a grand central stairway, spaces with maple and cherry hardwood flooring flow effortlessly: a window-wrapped living room, a formal dining room with a large bay window and a handsomely detailed fireplace, a wood-paneled library with a bay window and a fireplace, and a family room with a soaring ceiling, clerestory and Palladian windows, a stunning stacked-stone fireplace, and French doors to a small covered front porch and a harbor and ocean view deck. On the mezzanine level is a game room with a wet bar, a powder bath, dormer windows, and a small balcony. The spacious, light-filled kitchen boasts an island, counter seating, a brick fireplace, and a breakfast area in a bay with a lovely outlook over the water. Nearby is a butler's pantry with a wet bar and a dedicated temperature-controlled wine cellar with French doors. On the upper level are two cheerful guest bedroomsone with glass doors to a private balcony with a wide-open vista; a shared bath with generous storage, a tub, and a shower; and a third guest bedroom with a view and an en suite bath. The primary bedroom enjoys a bay window sitting area, regal columns, honey-hued hardwoods, a water-view balcony, two walk-in closets, and a luxurious bath with a glass-enclosed shower, a soaking tub, two vanities, and plentiful storage. On the uppermost level is a bedroom with a balcony, a kitchenette, and a bath with jetted tub and a shower. This is an ideal location for stargazing through a telescope. Closets are abundant throughout the home, and the sizeable, versatile full basement offers a wealth of storage space. Other highlights include an oversized three-door, three-car garage, a central vacuum system, and a generator. The Megansett neighborhood of North Falmouth is an idyllic coastal location on the brink of Squeteague Harbor, with Amrita and Lawrence Islands in view and Megansett, Wings Neck, Scraggy Neck, and Buzzards Bay beyond.
