On the Market: An Opulent Manse in Rye
2595 Ocean Boulevard, Rye, NH
Size: 9,874 square feet
Built in 1917, Rye’s Studebaker Estate was made for hosting Gatsby-style bashes. The dramatic property is situated along New Hampshire’s 18-mile stretch of coastline, boasting lush green lawns overlooking the ocean, not to mention a seaside pool, a large deck, and a grand solarium with an antique chandelier.
Throughout the opulent manse, there are 12-foot ceilings, marble fireplaces, and detailed moldings. The kitchen is outfitted with its original cast iron stove, and it’s connected to the formal dining room by an airy butler’s pantry. As if an almost 10,000-square-foot mansion with ocean vistas wasn’t impressive enough, there are also 100-year-old beech trees and other specimen plantings on the estate.
