The Skinny: This 16,000-square-foot shingle-style mansion from the mind of preeminent master traditionalist Robert A.M. Stern, has just hit the market with a starchitect-worthy asking price of $25M. Located on the extreme seaward end of Massachusetts' Mishaum Point near the mouth of Buzzard Bay, the home embraces the nautical life, boasting a watchtower, 270 degrees of ocean views, and a deepwater dock. Inside pastels in varying shades of blue continue the aquatic theme and keep the completely un-self serious interiors lively and bright, right down to the bowling alley and bar. The eight-bedroom, ten-bathroom main house keeps the party rolling with a wine cellar, an intimate sitting room with an outdoor walkway atop the watchtower, and an infinity pool. With 10 acres of land, including a rolling lawn that surrounds the home and reaches down to the 1,500 feet of shoreline, there's plenty of space for outdoor activities, not to mention room for the very large guest house. What else would you expect from "the Ralph Lauren of architecture?"
Interestingly enough, this is not the only remarkable beachfront Stern design on the market right now. In fact, his design in the Hamptons, asking $27.5M, may be even more idyllic.
