Behold, Orleans has a new most expensive listing, a 3.9 acre waterfront family compound that checks all of the expected luxury boxes and then some.
The 12 room 5,034 square footer was built in 2003 and hit the market on January 6 for $6,800,000. Wowza! That rather hefty sum makes this four-bedroom the priciest listing in town. Here's what six-point-eight will buy you in East Orleans:
Simple elegance reveals all on arrival at this beautiful family compound set back from a private country road in East Orleans. With substantial frontage on Pochet Inlet, "Fox Landing" offers stunning seaside ambiance throughout the main house, guest and grounds. Yesteryear's Victorian features are wrapped in striking contemporary grace and style. Enter the main home through a grand scale foyer blending understated luxury with comfort. High or coffered ceilings with indirect lighting create a welcome airiness. Throughout, appointments are top of the line: chef's dream kitchen with state of the art appliances, 100-year-old random pine floors, marble countertops, a full sound system, multiple fireplaces, recessed lighting throughout and more! Tennis court, heated in-ground pool, roof deck and bountiful lush gardens are just a few amenities of this gracious home. Since it's not lush garden season, one might expect exterior listing photos to be few and far between, but not for Fox Landing - even the snow and barren trees look rather lovely. Then again, for close to seven million clams, we suppose they should.
