SUNSET RIDGE:120 degree Ocean view! Bought in 1995 for its site, in 1999 the architect/owner built this home on the foundation and frame of the 1985 house. It has a classic New England farmhouse feel with simple modern spaces and details. The open kitchen/dining area has everything; the 18 x 21 ft living room with its 16 ft cathedral ceiling includes a dramatic fieldstone fireplace. It overlooks the ocean and a dramatically landscaped, irrigated lawn and perennial garden. The 1st floor includes a private wing with 2 bedrooms & 2 baths. Upstairs is a fabulous owner’s “apartment” with bedroom, bath, sitting room, laundry and office, all with water views and cathedral ceilings. Stepping outside you feel like you are in Italy with a wisteria draped pergola providing shade over the bluestone paving of the outside living area. The land slopes down to the west to an apple and pear orchard and in the spring it is blanketed with 54 varieties of daffodils. There is also a guest sitting/bedroom and bath above the garage with a cathedral ceiling and views in 3 directions. The mechanical plant:5 zone hot water baseboard heating system, a high velocity insulated AC system and a generator.. This wonderful home sits on almost 2 acres, bordered by 2.5 acres of Conservancy on the east and south such that it sits in the middle of 4.4 acres. The house site is significantly higher than the homes below so that the view is permanently unobstructed. Being sold “turnkey”- fully furnished!!!!
