Crane Beach Summer Estate

A classic New England summer home with a large back lawn that overlooks Crane’s beach. Turning off of scenic Argilla road and up the tree lined drive you are taken back in time. The large summer home, complete with an American flag, has a timeless feel about it. Walking around to the back you pass a little stone bench under a large oak tree, the perfect place for the couple to sit and take in the sprawling views. A bubbling fountain sets a peaceful mood.

Behind the house is large porch which opens out onto a flat grassy patio area, the perfect spot for a small wedding reception. To each side of the flat area are beautiful country gardens and a picturesque stone wall. The views from here stretch as far as the eye can see over the Great Marsh - 20,000 acres of marsh, tidal river, estuary - and out to the ocean. This protected area is home to many breeding and migratory birds, who occasionally pay a visit to this serene, secluded yard.
