FIRST OFFERING in nearly 50 Years! Waterfront estate on Sippican Harbor is one of the finest examples of Shingle-Style architecture on Massachusetts' South Coast. Set on an expansive 2.5-acre parcel with wooded privacy, sprawling lawns and 30' deep water dock, this harbor-front landmark offers panoramic water views spanning Buzzards Bay and Ram Island to the south, Tabor Academy seascape to the north, and sail-studded harbor, village skyline, superb sunsets, and venerable Beverly Yacht Club to the west. Designed by renowned architect Charles Allerton Coolidge (protégé of H.H. Richardson), this proud residence is original in an enclave of six historic Shingle-Style seaside homes—known as the West Drive Group and catalogued by the Smithsonian Institution—built for affluent New Englanders at the turn of the 20th C. as the town transitioned from a seafaring-based economy to summer destinations for wealthy residents and tourists.
