Unwinding by the fire in this home’s funky living room with its mid-century modern vibe, no one would fault you for thinking you were in a mountain-wrapped bungalow out west. But situated as it is minutes away from Manchester-by-the-Sea and the beauty of Singing Beach, this sprawling getaway offers some local serenity completely surrounded by nature.

You might end up getting a crick in your neck from turning your head so much. Where to look? Up at those vaulted beam ceilings throughout the home, or to the white-painted brick accent wall in the great room? Beyond the walls of windows, the beauty of the surrounding two-acre yard awaits. Wherever your eyes fall, they find warm wood and light-drench spaces.

Here, the floor plan flows seamlessly from one space to the other, from the charming kitchen that gives way to the hub of the great room, with intimate gathering spots thanks to smart design choices. Cuddle up on the couch in the living room—warmed by the fire, the wood tones of the floor and vaulted ceiling, and the light from the skylights—and break bread in the window-surrounded dining room. The deck off the dining room, joining a huge deck by the kitchen, invites for drinking in the brisk air. The large kitchen-side deck, meanwhile, features a four-season gazebo with a wood-burning stove to keep the winter wind at bay.

The main bedroom delights with vaulted ceilings and two walk-in closets, plus easy access to the deck and nearby gazebo. The expansive master bath features a double-vanity, plus a soaking tub and a separate shower. Other peaks of this mountain-side like manor include a home office with lots of windows to liven up work-from-home days, an exercise room, and guest rooms with generous closets. The lower level invites for social times, with a game room complete with a wet bar and fridge. And while you await the humid days of summer, hit up the private sauna and then go for a dip in the hot tub, tucked into a secluded patio just off the lower level, where you can soak under the stars.
