I love sharing the latest in New England real estate and this is a spectacular modern coastal home for sale in Manchester-By-The-Sea (the town in Massachusetts, not the movie starring Casey Affleck). It’s got big views, big style and costs really BIG money. Can you guess?

From the real estate listing:

Prepare to be amazed by Kragsyde, an astonishing private waterfront estate set atop a rocky outcropping on Boston’s storied North Shore. Finished in 2015 and claiming the preeminent site in the exclusive Smith’s Point neighborhood of Manchester-by-the-Sea, this modern stone and glass eyrie is a spectacular waterfront property that combines uncompromised ocean views with breathtaking modern architecture, contemporary convenience and unsurpassed luxury. Kragsyde has a lineage as distinguished as its location. Its 1880s namesake was among the first of Smith’s Point’s magnificent summer “cottages,” an outstanding Shingle Style home that set the standard for its day. Today, Kragsyde sets a new standard for the 21st century while paying homageto the original vision: It is a house that is substantial, yet natural; imposing, yet blending seamlessly with its site; private, yet open to breathtaking coastal views. (hmm… wondering what the original home on the site looked like. Here’s hoping it was a tear down because it wasn’t worth saving… Though, this new place IS spectacular!).

Love the openness achieved with the floating staircase and bright, light floors.

The double sided fireplace divides two main seating areas.

Love the subtile sandy beiges, greens, blues and grays in the color palette. The art work (though obscured in the real estate images for copyright reasons, I assume) looks like it complements the design indoors and the views.

The lines are clean, but the feeling is very comfortable.

How do you make a two tons of marble look like it’s floating on air? Light it up underneath.

This house is similar (though a bit grander) to the modern coastal home in Truro, MA that I decorated a couple of years ago, which was featured in Cape Cod Magazine.

    • Hi Linda! While I personally prefer a little more traditional myself, I actually love how well modernist buildings can fit into the landscape, when done right. I think this one works very nicely. I also really like how modern design can be so open to the views. Homes that are more traditional in design often are also more closed up feeling. But, between this one and the Truro home I worked on, I prefer the shingle cladding on the Truro home, which is more in keeping with our area.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
