Every now and then you find a house that takes your breath away and 19 Ned’s Point Rd in Mattapoisett is that house. Built by its current owner, this Nantucket style compound with deeded beach rights is situated on exclusive Ned’s Point Road. It’s the home where you’ve always dreamt of building a family legacy. The first thing you notice is the gorgeous old growth heart pine flooring from Carlisle Wide Plank Floors running end-to-end across the central hall which opens to an extraordinary kitchen with multiple refrigerators, two dish washers, professional ranges, ice maker, and plentiful cabinetry. The kitchen’s thoughtful design allows the home chef to focus on un-interrupted cooking at one side of the kitchen while the family relaxes on the other side. Adjacent to the kitchen is a comfortable dining room and 2-story fireplaced great room, which fills with sunlight and provides easy access to a cozy year-round sun room complete with vanishing roller window screens. All of this living space overlooks a private landscaped backyard with multiple patio areas, heated in-ground pool, hot tub, outdoor shower, adjacent full bath, bar and grilling area.
Further down the central hall are adjacent home offices that rival those of an elegant executive suite and are ideal for a professional couple’s use, or perfect for an Executive and their administrative assistant. When not working, the adjacent home gym — bigger than some hotel gyms — is perfect for all kinds of family workouts or a great place to train with your personal trainer.
The north and south ends of the home each have a discreet staircase bringing you to either the master suite wing or guest wing. The master suite is all about closing the door and exhaling. The large fireplaced bedroom opens to a sleeping porch with harbor views, dual walk-in closets, and a vast master bath with steam room and radiant heated floors and ledges. Pass through a comfortable 2nd floor family room to the guest wing where you find two bedrooms and a beautiful full bath. Further down the hall is a private guest apartment with bedroom, living room, full kitchen and 2 full baths. The guest apartment is ideal for grandparents, adult children or hosting friends.
If you’re still looking for space to explore in this over 10,000 sq ft home, climb a ship’s ladder to the widow’s walk where a hatch opens to a sun porch with expansive views of the harbor and Buzzards Bay. Or head 3 floors down to the basement media and entertainment hall with another full kitchen, full bath, full bar, home cinema, pool table and fireplace.
This home was designed and built to embrace the busy lifestyle of a discerning family seeking to experience luxurious living and entertaining in a coastal village town. No detail has been spared whether it’s the lush landscaping and stonework; or 3-car garage that opens to a mudroom with storage and closet space that will make you the envy of the neighborhood; or the creative use of flex space throughout the home that offers a family the ability to turn certain rooms in to additional bedrooms and entertaining space; or for those who pay attention to such things, the vast boiler room with perfectly laid out systems supporting an 8-zone heating/central AC system made by Unico, powered by 2 Viessmann boilers, Stadler radiant heat system (throughout the house including the basement and garage), 120-gallon hot water indirect heater, and a flat pan heat exchanger for a natural gas heated pool.
