Since the nineteenth century Great Neck has been a quiet community of fine summer homes.  It’s close proximity to Boston and Providence makes it perfect for commuting from the city and it’s location before the Cape Cod Canal bridges assures that traffic congestion is minimized.

Now for the first time in almost 100 years there is a very unique property available to the public.

Situated one hour from Boston or Providence facing south on the warm waters of Buzzards Bay this one of a kind antique Queen Ann summer house is available to a very special purchaser. It is ideal for large family or friends’ celebrations, weddings or gatherings, yet it is also perfect for quiet, intimate times. The property, built around 1880, includes a nine bedroom summer residence situated on an incline overlooking the bay and is quiet and secluded.

Great Neck has been a secluded sanctuary of fine vacation homes since the mid 1880’s, by the mid twentieth century it attracted more year round residents, and until recently few properties have come on the market. With its close proximity to International Airports, Biotech Headquarters, Ivy League Schools and Financial Centers it is now attracting discerning year round residents. This property has been an exclusive family compound since 1922 and remains architecturally authentic to its historical construction.  The estate consists of 4.75 acres with  private beach front on Buzzards Bay, it is out of the flood zone.

The house sits on a hill and has a panoramic view to the south, and affords near perfect siting for a solar power generation system. Across the bay sits the town of Marion Massachusetts and the Bird Island Lighthouse; over the horizon is the Elizabeth Islands and the Atlantic Ocean.

A mile to the East is the Cape Cod Canal that separates the mainland from the traffic of the Cape; it’s far enough away so that it’s not a nuisance but close enough to watch the ships as they pass by on the far side of the 3 mile long sand spit.

  2. Is the driveway separate or shared with the house immediately to the north ?

    Please advise type of heating and if central air conditioning has been added.

      In the current configuration the driveway would be from the road to the east.
      The house is as it was built; a summer residence without HVAC systems.
