20 Eliot Avenue
Surrounded by nature, this is a South Shore waterfront sanctuary. The presence of the peaceful placid pond combined with the power of the ocean and the sound of the waves is part of the special experience of living here. It has a particular sense of privacy and peacefulness. Hidden away on a quiet road of lilacs and summer cottages, the yard is defined by stone walls, lush gardens, natural art objects and several outdoor patios. Just beyond the lawn is a sandy path for easy access to the ocean and pond. The feeling inside the tasteful home is one of understated pleasing ambience. There are three bedroom suites and the ability to create a fourth. Each of the bedrooms has a connection to an outside space, two have pond and ocean views and one bedroom includes a sleeping loft space. The large and open kitchen which was recently renovated has a vaulted ceiling and an expansive dining space. Natural light and views of the pond fill the room and glass doors lead to the outdoor patios. The library with fireplace and a wall of windows to the water also serves as a formal dining room. In the living room, the dramatic height and spectacular views of the ocean and pond give you an expansive sense of water. The views from the adjacent sunroom have an intimacy and this room is currently used as an office and sitting room. The primary bedroom suite has extraordinary panoramic views and is a retreat that includes an open sitting room and fireplace as well as a private balcony and bathroom. The character of this property, its authenticity, vistas and connection to the natural landscape all combine to create a truly unique experience.
