Seven, Fremont Street is one of the most desirable residences within the boundaries of a peninsula known—only to a few—as Ricketson’s Point. Jetting out into Buzzards Bay, it forms the starting point of the breakwater (a local landmark for navigation) and the eastern shoreline of the prestigious harbor of Padanaram Village.
Privacy is instilled by the sense of quietness and serenity found beyond the gate located at the end of the road where a tasteful entrance firmly directs traffic away from its shores. It’s because of the location and lack of exits; vehicles are limited to owners and their guests, making it a stroller’s paradise.
Peeks of ocean views and gentle breezes during the late afternoon is the main attraction to this destination, but if you combine a secluded and picturesque beach with panoramic views of boat traffic, then the magic of this one-of-a-kind location makes sense why it is the benchmark for luxurious living.
An exceptional property by all measures, it’s surprising this month’s feature made it to publication. An important enclave—for the summer season—the “Point” boasts exclusivity, and when a home becomes available, it doesn’t often make it to the open market. Those in pursuit of a summer house, with easy access to their primary residence, often take advantage of these rare opportunities.
Also exciting about this new listing is that the home welcomes those interested in a year-round executive residence. With near-by amenities, all within a few short steps, a new owner will be thrilled to be close to the yacht club, restaurants, boutiques, and gourmet shopping.
As one of the most beautiful homes in the area, it’s clear that it didn’t end up looking as it does, by accident; it began with a good design and refined taste.
Visually appealing, this distinctive Acorn Deck House was created by craftspeople who combine their technical skills and a homeowner’s ideas. This cooperative effort is found throughout Seven Fremont beginning with how the home is placed on the property so that its views are ideally utilized.
Then, the use of natural vegetation in combination with groomed landscaping to preserve surrounding growth creates organic walkways to and from the beach.
Looking for a first-floor bedroom suite—check, a home office—check, and a dramatic great room and kitchen that is called, “A chef’s dream,” by real estate broker Fatima Simas; yes, it’s all here; with five bedrooms, four and one-half baths, and a studio over the garage.
Throughout the 4,830 square foot structure, the exquisite details of the hardwood floors, moldings, and wainscoting are breathtakingly beautiful and in perfect condition.
Inside and out, the home is stunning while it instills a feeling of a traditional Nantucket cottage, but with an openness and greater practicality. Vaulted ceilings offer a sense of grand fortune, with a stairway, balcony, and rotunda which exudes classic elegance within a contemporary design.
With a price point of $1.985 million, this month’s feature home is worth a first, second, even a third look, because supply and demand will dictate who and when this superb example of quality and comfort will exchange owners.
