Designed by prominent Boston architect Arthur Little, this incredible Beverly Farms property was really built ahead of its time, as Little stepped beyond the details and designs typical to the early 1900s, creating a tranquil haven. “He didn’t live in what he practices,” says LandVest listing agent Lanse Robb.
Upon entering the home, there is a grand living room with soaring ceilings and a large dining room, which then spills out onto the pool. “It was built first for entertainment, second for sleeping,” Robb says. At it currently stands, this home is for hosting guests rather than a home for a subdivision family, though it could certainly be flexible with some renovation work.
It includes a heated pool, clay tennis court, stucco mansion and separate carriage house, all closed-off to allow for extra privacy and separation, but with all of the convenience of being right in Beverly Farms. “You don’t know it exists until you go in,” Robb explains. A compound in the middle of a town, this home affords all the safety and tranquility desired while still just a 20-minute train to Boston and a 10-minute walk to the ocean.
