An hour's drive from Boston (and a quick drive to the Gloucester commuter rail stop), this airy modern house, perched on a hilltop overlooking Ipswich Bay, is a beautiful and inspiring place to live. In addition to the unique architecture and stunning views, you'll have access to the 55-acre private estate, including tennis courts, two beaches, and ample land to roam (meadows, forest, marsh, and rocky coast). The estate has been in our family since the Civil War and is still dotted with historic mansions. Avian visitors to this tranquil stretch of land include belted kingfishers and bald eagles. The house is fully furnished (featuring Breuer, Charles Webb and Chilton furniture), with two working fireplaces and wall-to-wall Berber carpet. It's a perfect retreat for academics and scientists. Please visit our website for more information about the house and the estate, and for many more pictures:
