When it was an unrenovated, spectacularly situated on an ocean bluff above a beautiful, white-sand beach, it seemed this house was always 'for sale.' The Jackie-O-beautiful elderly owner kept a permanent sign on the old garage with a (hand) painted price asking triple the current market. It was way beyond my means as a young graphic designer and illustrator. Years went by with that for-sale sign on the garage... but now our petite titan wanted twice that. Knowing I could never afford it, I suggested to her (now on speaking terms) how this lovely elderly lady might wrangle some tax advantage by moving in full time, staying, and saving her large gain. Never did I imagine I could figure out how to own this house at her astronomical price. But the Boston RE market was surging; we sold our JP condo, cashed in my Keogh plan+IRA, and bought it in its shockingly rough, unheated, uninsulated state, with homosote dropped-ceilings hiding the gorgeous original 1914 framing. Every year has seen a big transfusion of green, lovingly upgrading this incredible, authentic Cape Cod "cottage" in a way that maintains its old charm. Year after year, better and better. A few years ago, the great old house got her 36" Sub Zero TCI, two-years ago two new 15-light custom-insulated Andersen French doors. More recently, we renovated third bathroom and a commissioned top-to-bottom, hugely-costly, beautifully accomplished paint job. We are grateful for the families who have come back every year, supporting our transformation effort while we give 150% to support their vacation visions. We want to surprise them by making it just a bit more magnificent each year they return.
Robin purchased this House in 2005
Why Robin chose Manomet
This incredible 1915 oceanfront 'mega-cottage' was one of the first few built on these famously beautiful bluffs. If you see the antique postcards, this was an almost uninhabited coastline. And back then, you could choose the best spot. Nobody else was around. As a few homes were built over the decades, they were 'of the time' vintage New England style and are now part of this charming, casual-upscale walking neighborhood with lawns and gardens, children on bikes, and folks strolling the quiet oceanfront roads together or with their four-legged best friend. And it's not just for summer anymore--now you can come for cool weather ocean winter beach walks, cozy by the fire when you return, toddy or tea with your English pudding in the Aga. Not only are summers a dream-come-true, but now fall and early winter can be the best months of the year.
What makes this House unique
White sugar-sand beach, Hawaii-like views, authentic 1910 architecture, incomparable location, beach stairs, broad lawn, precious neighborhood with lots of amenities -- just an amazing, wonderful house in a breathtaking setting.
