47 Longstreet Lane ~ Waterfront, Eastham
A luminous seaside jewel glistens above the beach at 47 Longstreet Lane. Distinguished by its recent build date (2012) and large lot size (.74 acres) this Waterfront Cape’s special quality is its intuitive design, seamlessly blending high-end finishes and luxury appointments with the come-as-you-are sensibility of a relaxing beach home. It is at once both elegant and eminently livable with nat gas heat, central A/C, hardwood flooring and 9ft ceilings. Outside each window an ever-changing work of unparalleled beauty has been commissioned especially for you: Bay waters dwindle revealing bars of golden sand, gulls wheel and cry overhead, and at day’s end the sun, rich as wine, funnels into the horizon amidst a kaleidoscope of colors and moods. Due to the tyranny of erosion and damaging winter storms many waterfront properties face a dubious future, but this home is sited well back from the coastal bank mitigating the need for a revetment or other artificial barrier. If you’ve spent any amount of time on bayside beaches you know that incoming tides almost invariably reach existing revetments and seawalls, and in a bit of cruel irony rob otherwise fortunate homeowners of usable shorefront. By contrast the sand in front of this home has actually been expanding in recent years - sure to please even the most ardent beachgoer. I mentioned high-end finishes. A front porch leads to a crisply-styled kitchen with rich African granite counters, Liebherr refrigerator, Asko dishwasher, plenty of custom cabinetry and a view that would make even the worst meal palatable. The living room has great natural illumination with a fully-glassed westward-facing aspect, working fireplace and French doors that open to an oversized deck. The 1st floor Master is spacious with a large closet and a luxurious en-suite bath featuring Italian marble tiling and granite vanity. A wide and flowing staircase reveals a 2nd floor bedroom with breathtaking views and an open loft-style writing room that could also function as a 3rd sleeping area, as well as a large upstairs living space and 2nd bath with the same granite vanity and marble tile as the bath below. The entire spectrum of the Cape is visible from these upper rooms, each glance idly testing the limits of human perception. I don’t know your individual tastes and preferences, but you’d have to be terribly shut-minded to not be profoundly impacted by this remarkable property. Hint: don’t equivocate long.
