The tony village of Osterville is home to many of the Cape's priciest listings, some of which actually sell for close to ask, and now there's a new king of the hill on the market.
The whopping 18,966-square-foot spread was completed this year and sits on three waterfront acres overlooking Nantucket Sound. Naturally, there's a private beach with 300(ish)-feet of personal sand. There's a six bedroom main house, a five bedroom guest house, pool and pool house, and a beach cabana for hosing off, storing boogie boards and whatnot. Here's a literary tour of the digs via the brokerbabble:
Highlighted by a 3-story foyer and chandeliered spiral staircase opening into the main living areas, the design results in a layering of space and an interplay of light and form. The chef's kitchen features top-flight appliances and finishes with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Nantucket Sound. The master suite captures panoramic views from the third floor and has two walk in closets, a dressing room, his and hers bathrooms, office, covered balcony, and elevator access to all floors. The house flows easily to the outdoor living area by the pool, with further space for entertaining in the beautiful pool house. To maximize privacy and comfortable interaction for family and guests, the 5 bedroom self-sufficient guest house is separated by the pool and pool house on its own lot. Sited at the end of a gated drive, privacy is further protected by evergreen plantings along the property lines. Stairs from the broad, level lawn lead down to the sandy beach and beach cabana with shower and bath.861 Sea View Avenue last changed hands in September 2011 for $5,265,000. The circa 2014 estate from Nicholaeff Architecture and Design is now asking $22,000,000.
