Location: Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts

Price: $9,200,000

This incredible Manchester-by-the-Sea home was designed in 1996 by postmodernist architect Michael Graves, who passed away at the age of 80 two years ago. Comprising just under 10 acres of land—with the option to purchase another three-acre-plus parcel—a main house, and a 2011-built, shingle-style guesthouse, the property showcases Graves’s singular aesthetic of geometric volumes and bold use of color.

The 6,963-square-foot five-bedroom six-bath perches on Magnolia Harbor in Coolidge Point and features sun-filled living and entertaining spaces, a rotunda library, expansive kitchen with breakfast nook, and windows all around—some circular—that frame sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Each room boasts a unique architectural scheme, making the home a funhouse—a comfortable, cozy one—of contemporary design.

Located at 45 Coolidge Point, the property is listed at $9,200,000 after a significant price cut of $5,300,000. Or, get the entire 12.9-acre compound for $14,500,000. Take a look below.
