55 Puritan Lane in Swampscott features coffered ceilings and seven fireplaces. BOSTON REP

A multiyear preservation project preserved the beautiful coffered ceilings, quartersawn floors, and wood-paneled walls of this turn-of-the-last-century home.

55 Puritan Lane is listed for $8,350,000, by Claire Dembowski of RE/Max Advantage Real Estate. The gated mansion, which sits on 1.28 acres along the waterfront, has five bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, and 11,444 square feet of living space. The property is known as “Sea Bend.”

French doors lead to an expansive library with wood paneling, coffered ceilings, and a fireplace — one of seven in the home, which dates to 1910.

Wood cabinetry adds warmth to the marble-floored kitchen,  which features a multi-tiered island, a wet bar, a wine chiller, pendant lighting, and stainless-steel appliances.


One can take the elevator to the second-floor master suite, which offers a dressing room, a jetted tub, a separate shower, and a double vanity.

Other highlights of the home include stained-glass windows, smart-home systems, a wine cellar, a hot tub, an outdoor shower, and a three-car garage.
