West Harwich has a new most expensive listing and the place is pretty much the definition of a pricey waterfront family compound.
Apparently, the folks who built this spread back in 1930 managed to avoid the Wall Street Crash of 1929 because they certainly spared no expense. Here's how the brokerbabble breaks down the 3,984-square-footer on 3.17 acres:
MAGNIFICENT Herring River front estate encompassing over three acres of graciously groomed grounds, mature trees, pretty perennials and rolling green lawns. Sited perfectly to capture the ever-changing view of glorious Herring River and minutes to Nantucket Sound. This private waterfront compound features an exceptionally restored five bedroom main residence with 4000 square feet of coastal living space, a separate two bedroom guest cottage with almost 1100 square feet, an attached garage, vintage barn and ice house and a most desirable boat house complete with sandy beach and private dock. The craftsmanship, quality and the care that has gone into restoring and creating this fine residence is unmatched. Loved for generations, 99 Riverside is truly the ultimate waterfront family compound.Yup, this place is a must-have-been-designed-in-the-Roaring-Twenties classic with a very 2014 asking price of $3,899,900.
