On the Market: A Cape House by the Water in Marion
Surrounded by marshland, this home with waterfront views and access is perfect for enjoying coastal living.
64 Indian Cove Road, Marion
Size: 3,663 square feet
Marion’s seafaring roots date back to the 1800s. Boys from the coastal town would get jobs on ships and work their way up to captain. Many would strike their fortune, come back to Marion, and settle down in elaborate homes they had built for themselves and their families. This house, though it dates back only to 1986, takes inspiration from that history. From its worn wood exterior to its beamed ceilings, you’ll be reminded of the town’s nautical past while enjoying the modern conveniences of coastal living.
Upon moving into this home, you’ll gain access to a shared dock and clubhouse via an HOA, which provide endless opportunities to enjoy life on the water. When you’re done for the day, rinse off in your outdoor shower back at home. A bluestone patio provides a comfortable space for relaxing after a long day outside, while a grill, hot tub, and outdoor fireplace provide endless entertainment options while enjoying the two acres of grounds.
The outdoor space is easily accessible through French doors off the kitchen/dining area. While Marion’s originals sailors were subjected to a galley kitchen, this home is outfitted with one fit for a chef. With top-of-the-line appliances, granite countertops, and a large island, it provides all the space you need for making gourmet-style meals. Afterwards, relax on the screened-in porch or by the fireplace in the living room or family room. The latter also boasts built-in bookshelves that extend to the ceiling and serves as the perfect space for your literary collection. Want a bottle of wine while you’re reading by the fire? Pop downstairs to the wine cellar to grab a bottle.
At the end of the night, crawl into bed in the first-floor main suite, which boasts another fireplace, a custom cherry walk-in closet, and an oversized spa bathroom. Upstairs, three additional bedrooms, two office areas, and a multi-purpose room with a separate entrance allows even more space for guests to relax following a blissful day at sea.
