If heartwood oak flooring, a California redwood staircase, Arts and Crafts chandeliers galore, marble and porcelain tile fireplace surrounds, carved mantles, and an iconic four-story tower with observation cupola are your thing, prepare to swoon over this waterfront Woods Hole estate.
The property fronts both Great Harbor and Little Harbor and features "views from Juniper Point across Woods Hole Passage and a panorama from Nobska Lighthouse to Martha's Vineyard." Or, as LandVest listing agent Stewart Young explained to Boston Magazine, "Looking out over Wood [sic] Hole, it's kind of like a castle on the Rhine that was used to watch people coming and going." Castle comparisons and people watching aside, the 10BR, 6.5BA residence was, "Built in 1885 and extensively renovated in 1910 by the noted firm of Purcell and Elmslie, this historic property was purchased in 1910 by Charles R. Crane, Chicago industrialist and Ambassador to China, and it has been in the Crane family ever since." The family is now willing to part with the 1.9 acre spread, plus access to a private sandy beach and concrete pier on Little Harbor, for $6,400,000.
