Listowel, steeped in luxurious privacy with 360 feet of water frontage on Mecox Bay, is bordered by land that has been farmed by the same families since the 1600s. A strategic collaboration of stellar professionals has culminated in the majestic achievement of a Shingle Style home with classic gardens, epitomizing the best of artisanal-fueled craftsmanship. Interior and exterior spaces are designed to seamlessly integrate modern convenience with Old World style. The home encompasses over 12,000 square feet of living and entertaining spaces, including a dramatic two-story library, a spacious living room featuring three sets of French doors that open to an expansive covered porch, and a formal dining room with French doors and hand-painted chinois wallpaper—all with fireplaces. A butler’s pantry leads to the stainless steel chef’s kitchen with walk-in pantry and top-of-the-line appliances; the adjacent gathering room boasts four sets of French doors opening to a trellis-covered outdoor living room with a magnificent stone fireplace. Separate, though attached, is the “guest cottage” that features a complete informal living area with fireplace, painting studio, second-floor ensuite bedroom, and access to the outdoor spa. Upstairs are four ensuite bedrooms, the master suite encompassing the entire southeastern wing of the house: a vaulted-ceiling master bedroom with fireplace and French doors opening to a south-facing deck with dramatic views of Mecox Bay and the ocean beyond, a marble master bath highlighting radiant-heat floors and views across the farms’ fields, and two large walk-in closets. A firelit Tower study with dramatic water views completes the upper level. Outside, six acres embrace a carriage house, a heated gunite pool within an allée of sycamore trees, a vast and aromatic rose garden, an orchard of 60-year-old apple trees, flower-cutting gardens, dry-stacked stone walls and gravel walkways, and mature specimen trees, all laid out in the classic English garden style. A welcoming nature path leads to the waterside, where a large dock awaits the water-sport aficionado.
