Former Life-Saving Service station is now sun-washed beach house in Scituate’s Minot neighborhood

Surfmen and rescue boats from the US Life-Saving Service called this shingle-sided house in Scituate’s Minot neighborhood home during the 19th century. Today, the sun-splashed living room has planked flooring and 10-foot ceilings with no support beams, holdovers from the days when boats were kept here. A fireplace has been added to the living room, which has ocean views that stretch from Minot Light to Scituate Light.

A mahogany and cedar deck, some grass, and a breakwall lie between the house and the private beach. There is an exterior shower. Adjacent to the living room is the former keeper’s private quarters, now a sitting room with a fireplace. The small kitchen, with high-end appliances and an eating area, connects to the former mess hall which is now a dining room with nautical wainscotting and a chandelier.

The second-floor master has double closets and a private bath. The four children’s bedrooms vary in size. The family bath has a tub with shower. Half the basement is a kids’ playroom. Joanne Conway of William Raveis Real Estate in Hingham is the listing broker.
