Perched high above Walker Creek, this stunning contemporary shingle-style home affords sweeping views over Essex Bay and the backside of Crane Beach. Complemented by the natural beauty of its awe-inspiring surroundings, this property is a true nature lover’s dream. Complete with a private tidal dock, a two-story heated art studio, two barns with over-sized storage, a fenced paddock, and zen-like gardens, it lists for $2,500,000.

“In my 29 years of selling real estate, I have never seen anything more unique. This is a total hidden gem,” says Realtor Holly Fabyan of J Barrett and Company. “When riding down this long winding drive, you feel as though you are weaving through a rural countryside. And then you see it. You have arrived at what seems like the end of the earth, where the land meets the ocean. It is absolutely breathtaking.”

While this home may appear a bit unassuming from the curb, its interior is absolutely magical. Clearly designed for easy entertaining and flexible living, its thoughtfully fluid floor plan is enhanced by high ceilings, clean lines, and walls of windows. A spacious living room is cozy yet sophisticated with gleaming hardwood floors, recess lighting, and a wood burning fireplace. The wide open chef’s kitchen is as attractive as it is functional, with glass-front cabinets, professional grade stainless steel appliances, decorative track lighting, and a generous dining area complete with a gas fireplace and French doors to a beautiful covered deck. A few steps down lead to an amazing atrium with radiant heat, ceramic flooring and walls of glass sliders leading to a deck with a hot tub. A convenient guest suite with exterior access and a kitchenette rounds off this level.

A sumptuous master on the second level boasts a gas fireplace and a private balcony with commanding views. Its en suite bath with double vanity and built-in jetted tub, is sure to rival the finest of spas. Sharing this level are two additional bedrooms, a central library, and a second full bath. Should you still find yourself longing for more space, two bonus rooms with cathedral ceilings and skylights above the two-car garage offer a world of possibilities.

“The house is set high above the water catching the breezes, so we only use the air conditioning three or four nights a year. Within days of moving here, we got into the rhythm of the tides,” says the seller. “Living in or simply visiting this house, brings peace and harmony. I was once told by a local fishing guide, as he was gazing out the windows in the breakfast nook, that he didn’t know there was anything like this left on the North Shore. One year, we took a photo every day from the same point and no two photos were alike. Nature abounds here with an ever-changing view.”
