The best view in the estate is on the upper deck with plenty of seating and panoramic views of the surrounding area. Or relax in the solarium on the main level and use the telescope or binoculars to get a closer look at passing sailboats and schooners. Visit the den or library for some quiet time away, or use the well-equipped office downstairs to get some work done without distraction. Take a soothing stroll around the 5-acre property featuring several gardens and even a private pond where you can take a seat in the outdoor chairs or make s’mores in the fire pit.

Additional sleeping can be found in the den and the family room.
