For the first time in almost thirty years, a custom Ralph Anderson home designed for his family is on the market. Its modern exterior makes it look far younger than its fifty-five year age. Inside, the era is more noticeable. The location, 1.1 acres with over a hundred feet of no-bank waterfront is timeless, as long as the bulkhead holds and the water doesn’t rise. An impressive and unique package for $2,500,000.
The facade is dramatic. So is the location. Together they’ll always stand out. Thanks to terraced land behind a stout rock bulkhead, the house was sited close to the shore. A corner pushes past the outdoor spaces to create a prow of rooms aimed at the water.
From the inside it could feel like you’re on a very solid boat as weather and waves come at you, or on peaceful days you get a prime place to sit and contemplate the world. Enjoy the view from the two cherished chairs set beside window seats, or from the formal dining room that shares the wall of windows,
The kitchen is a mix of old and new, as if an update was done with respect for the heritage that’s evident in the red cedar paneling, turned fence rails, and pebbled floors.
With four bedrooms and three and a quarter bathrooms in 3,760 square feet, there is enough room for a family, and five fireplaces. The rooms have smaller windows, but the view is as large from all of them.
The outdoors aren’t ignored. A large deck and a swimming pool provide places to entertain and play. And, of course, there’s also the Sound. Launch kayaks or paddle boards from the beach, or simply see what washed up with the last storm.
