"Rarely does a property become available on Tobey Island in Bourne." Indeed, we're pretty sure this is the first Tobey Island listing we've ever come across. According to the eye roll-inducing brokerbabble, the spread is "Exclusivity at its finest, a way of life on this private island." The house doesn't have the whole place to itself, so it's actually not that exclusive, but from what we've read, visiting the island is by invitation only. We have no idea whether invites were required back in 1903 when the 5,104 square foot home was built "as a wedding present for a cherished child," but we can imagine the original owner requiring them of their less-adored and green-with-envy siblings who were probably given hovels on the mainland.
With 6-9 bedrooms, 5 full updated baths, formal LR and DR, remodeled cook's kitchen with adjoining breakfast room and many period built-ins, this home towers on a cliff with a commanding view of its private beach, Mashnee Island and the ocean beyond will be a charming place for a new family to make memories for generations to come. Outside yoga platform with Jacuzzi faces amazing western sunsets. The custom seaside fire pit built on a cobblestone patio will provide a perfect backdrop for blazing sunsets and area fireworks. Who is bringing the marshmallows? Asking price for the 1.1 acre Emmons Road property, minus marshmallows, is $3,500,000.
