It came on the market for $2.9 million earlier this year in June before cutting its price down to $2.35 million a month later. In August, the house went into contract, and earlier this week the deal closed.
Originally built in 1969, the compact 1,000-square-foot home now features light hardwood floors, white walls, cathedral ceilings, a wide open floorplan, and a wall of windows off the living and dining space.
The 0.38-acre property comes with a 10,783-square-foot main building with two storefronts on the ground level and eight one-bedroom apartments upstairs. There’s also a 1,105-square-foot detached garage and a four-bedroom house.
With high ceilings, walls of windows that look out to the bay, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and a sunken conversation pit, there are unique and desirable qualities that this midcentury home has to offer
Even after the $5 million price cut, the 10-acre property is still the most expensive single-family home available on Parsonage Lane, followed by the contemporary estate at the 289 address seeking $17.95 million.
An open floorplan maximizes the space in the living and dining room, highlighted by the eat-in kitchen and adjacent double-height dining room. The double-height library loft can be found on the second level.
The property was once part of the Cody House compound—a 5.5-acre waterfront property with four subdividable lots on Georgica Pond. Businessman David Geffen purchased all four lots back in 2014 for $52 million from Courtney Sale Ross.
New owners will particularly enjoy relaxing on an oceanview teak rooftop deck. The exterior living space offers beautiful gardens, a heated pool with a waterfall, and a poolside cabana with a gym, a summer kitchen, and a changing room.
We love that the hardwood floors and white walls found throughout the home create a neutral palette, but accent wallpapers and the sun room’s black and white tiled floors add unique pops of color and style.
We absolutely adore the cherry red front door that adds a pop of color against the shingled exterior. A set of double sliding doors off the living room lead out to the outdoor living space, where one will find brand new mahogany decking and a heated gunite pool.
Right now, the century-old home doesn’t look like much without furnishing or completed renovations—but between the hardwood floors, brick details, and cute, compact space, the home has a lot of potential.
