Keeping the beach vibe going year round in Cape Town or Nantucket can be a challenge if you have a day job on the mainland.
Fortunately, the North Shore offers the same salty sea air with much more advantageous commuting options. In the Tony Galloupes Point neighborhood of Swampscott, residents can enjoy a beach lifestyle just 30 minutes north of Boston. Among the many custom homes in the enclave, 3 Williams Terrace shines with its stunning grounds and ceded rights to an exclusive private beach.
Undergoing a complete update over the past 11 years, the contemporary home is wrapped in oversized windows and surrounded by mature trees and landscaping. In summer, the property’s covered porches, expansive patio, second-floor terrace and gazebo offer endless opportunities to relax to the sound of the waves and soak up the sun. When the sun goes down, gather around the fireplace under the stars.
Inside, the house is large in size, with two wings ideal for a lovely suite and guests, and plenty of elbow room for the whole family. The main living level features an expansive open floor plan, featuring a spectacular stone fireplace in the living room, an inspiring dining area with views of the manicured gardens, and an updated kitchen diner.
On the second floor, a great room with high cathedral ceilings and huge glass sliders opens onto a terrace with ocean views – another gathering place for family and friends. There are four bedrooms and 4.5 baths and almost 3,300 square feet, including a bonus home office.
Hours of operation are Sunday, May 22, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information on the house, contact Team Harborside with Sagan Harborside at Sotheby’s International Realty.
