The Main House, built in 1917 by the well know architect Albert Lansburgh, is around 4,000 square feet. The stunning living room that includes an inglenook fireplace has been used for lectures, brainstorming sessions and yoga. The two large eating areas have also been used for presentations and meetings. The fully stocked kitchen is set up perfectly for caterers. There is a large deck overlooking the ocean and many seating areas spread throughout the 3 acres of gardens. The heated pool also has a deck with incredible views of the ocean, a dry bar and can be set up for pool volley ball or yoga. Hidden in the basement is an authentic speakeasy bar that can be used sipping whisky or playing poker. The beach is just out the private gate next to the veggie garden. Team building surf classes would be a perfect day time event before enjoying the large bbq. Or maybe yoga or croquet is more your style. The sound of water running over rocks into the pond is meditative and its hard not to feel inspired. Frequent guest Robert Oppenheimer of the Manhattan project may have been sitting watching the dragonflies when he came up with some of his mind blowing ideas. His desk still stands in the carriage house, which would also be an excellent space for gathering. Besides the bathrooms in the houses, there are two by the lawns and bbq area. Wifi is available in both houses. No car required to enjoy beach activities, walk to town or enjoy world class hiking trails. Long time residents and naturalists, Steve and Lovisa, can help arrange guided hikes, kayaking, surfing, treasure hunts, wildlife tours, biking adventures, food and wine tours, picnics and s'mores around the fire pit. We are available to help coordinate caterers, yoga instructors, massage therapists, and anything else you might be interested in.
No smoking or whining!
The property was even better than the photos! The house was very nicely decorated and the surrounding gardens were amazing. With it's beautiful architecture and rich history it was the perfect place for my photo shoot. I absolutely loved it! Lovisa was a great host and I would definitely be interested in booking again in the future!
