On the Market: A Stucco Estate on the Marion Waterfront
This beachside backyard will have you dreaming of outdoor dinner parties.
756 Point Road, Marion
Size: 11,455 square feet
Let’s address the elephant in the room: This house is huge. With close to 11,500 square feet, 26 rooms, nine bedrooms, eight fireplaces, four acres, and 550 feet of frontage on Sippican Harbor, it may feel like several single-family homes pushed together. But since it was built in 1900, the property has always been a family home, and walking through its halls is a bit like stepping back in time. Pale yellow carpeting stretches from wall to wall in the foyer, and even runs up the stairs, and retro green-and-yellow floral wallpaper adorns the dining room. While the next owners—the first new dwellers in half a century—will likely make some updates, it’s worth maintaining some of the throwback style that’s such a big part of the home’s charm.
Pause to appreciate the view in the teal carpeted sunroom, which showcases long, uninterrupted views of the ocean outside, and then head out into the salty air. A broad lawn and tall trees surround the stucco Gambrel Colonial, but the feature that stands out among all that green is a large, rectangular stone wall. Fill the plot with perennials and enjoy it as a contained wildflower garden, or string up some lights and host some dreamy dinner parties there. With Hammett Cove mere yards away, you can saunter down to the shared dock and take a post-picnic sail around the block.
