Tucked on a quiet 1.56 acres on Nantucket Sound, 78 Triton Way in Mashpee is a Cape retreat, and with the bouts of record-breaking heat Greater Boston has been experiencing as of late, who doesn’t dream of a seaside escape?
The stunning 12,090-square-foot home offers seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, four half bathrooms, and a heated pool with a fully equipped cabana.
The property, on the market for the first time since it was custom-built for the sellers in 1996, has been carefully maintained. Guests travel through a set of double doors into a grand foyer with stone tile flooring and a winding staircase.
Throughout the first floor, walls of windows in each room offer endless views of the ocean, nowhere more so than in the living room, where high ceilings give the space an atrium-like feel. Glass doors here open to a spacious stone patio, ready for those who wish to enjoy the view in the open air.
A breakfast nook connects the living room and the kitchen, home to an island with a sink and bar seating, granite countertops, and three ovens. Throughout each room, light-colored wood floors and white walls reflect the Cape Cod sunshine pouring in through the windows.
The primary bedroom is also on the first floor. It offers an en-suite bath, a sitting area, and a set of glass double doors to the patio. The other bedrooms, located upstairs, each have wood floors and en-suite bathrooms, and three come with balconies.
The basement is made to entertain, with a lounge, billiards room, and a wet bar bar outfitted with a sink, dishwasher, and wine and beverage refrigerators. A home gym rounds out this level, adding a hint of work to all the play.
Outside, guests can relax by the heated pool or in the luxurious cabana, complete with two full bathrooms, a kitchen, a massage room, and a sauna.
Paul Grover of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Robert Paul Properties has the listing. Though the $10,595,000 price tag is hefty, it’s still a ways from record-breaking. In March, a Chatham home was listed for $18,800,000, though that price has since dropped to $16,500,000. The Mashpee mansion doesn’t come close to the records across the sound in Nantucket, where a home was recently listed for $56 million.
