On the banks of picturesque Bournes Pond in East Falmouth, this idyllic estate is a lush, languid 3.77-acre getaway where a three-bedroom clapboard and shingle home, a three-bedroom guest cottage, and a barn are ringed by mature trees and perennials and share an expansive green lawn, a refreshing swimming pool, and a dock on the sea-salt pond waters. A separate vacant parcel is included in the 3.77 acre. In the light-filled main residence, modern sophistication harmonizes with coastal New England charm. Relaxed living and entertaining are effortless thanks to a floor plan that includes formal living and dining rooms--both with honey-hued hardwood floors, abundant windows, and doors opening to the pool terrace and lawn. Throughout the interiors, generous windows create sun-filled spaces, views are picture-perfect, and the palette is light, cheerful, and reminiscent of the sea, sky, and surrounding wooded areas. A wood-burning fireplace brings warmth and character to the living room, and a comfortable den or family room enjoys access to a delightful deck and the pool. In the kitchen, which includes a breakfast area and has been outfitted with excellent-quality stainless-steel appliances, the cabinetry is painted in dreamy sky blue. One guest bedroom is conveniently located on the main level, as is a quiet, contemplative office with French doors providing an inspiring view. Atop a second stairway linked with the den, the upper-level landing provides additional space for a second office. Nearby, the restful primary suite includes ample closet space, dressing areas, and a spacious skylit bath. The additional bedroom on this level enjoys its own bath and a view across the grounds to the water
Relaxed living and festive entertaining extend easily to the outdoors, beginning with a sunny deck ideal for grilling and an elegant granite terrace surrounding the alluring swimming pool. Further afield amid storybook fenced gardens, vibrant hydrangeas, other colorful flowers, and a meandering stone pathway is a charming 1,061-square-foot guest cottage with three peaceful bedrooms, two on the upper level, a kitchen, and a welcoming living area with warm wood paneling. The versatile freestanding 896-square-foot barn barn offers gym space, a half bath, and boat storage. Other highlights include an adjoining additional buildable parcel, two outdoor showers, and a generator that powers all three structures. A boardwalk leads through grassy marshland to the edge of Bournes Pond and a private dock with water. South of the pond, a small bridge known for its clamming, quahogging and fishing marks the entrance to the wide-open waters of Vineyard Sound.
