What They Got: Behind the entry gates of a 107-by 97-foot lot is this sprawling 4,520-square-foot residence with a long driveway, double garage and secluded south-facing backyard and patio with a hot tub.

In 2005, architect Brad Lamoureux remastered the 23-year-old structure with more open interiors that had hardwood floors, walls of windows and multiple glass doors to two angular decks. Large groups can be entertained in the dining area off the central kitchen and fireside living and family rooms.

For overnight accommodations, the top floor features a grand, fireside master suite with a balcony, walk-in closet and one of the largest of four bathrooms, while the lower level is divided up with three bedrooms and a media room with a fourth gas fireplace.

The Agent’s Take: “You have park on one side and waterfront, so it’s private,” agent Jaime MacDougall said. “It was very open and contemporary, which suits the land and waterfront.”

The design of each room was also remarkable, even the cellar off the living room. “The doors on the wine cellar most people thought was art with heavy, wrought iron,” Mr. MacDougall said. “Upstairs was all for the master suite, so it was a very adult-oriented home.”
