We proudly offer one of the most stunningly beautiful properties on the northern New England Seacoast. Beacon Rock is a summer cottage in the grand style of Watch Hill, the North Shore or Northeast Harbor. It owns a remarkable 500 feet of New Hampshire coast, the crown jewel of four oceanfront acres. On a magnificent seascape, virtually all vessels leaving the harbor must pass by…whether a Tall Ship, submarine or sailboat. Designed by Boston architect Edmund M. Wheelwright in 1883, the residence was built for a romantic, writer Edmund C. Stedman. Architect William White redesigned the structure in 1931, creating the grand house that now stands. Well-appointed formal rooms with grand fireplaces, high ceilings and hand-crafted woodwork permitted glittering formal parties. Professionals, captains of industry, even presidential hopefuls coveted invitations. A full-length piazza was the envy of every visitor. One could easily overlook other important amenities. For example, previous owners adored the game of tennis and there is a lighted court surfaced identically to those found at the U.S. Open. Caretaker quarters above a 3-car garage also allow for a low-key escape. This is a place that encourages contemplative after-dinner walks. And, while remote and secluded, Beacon Rock is less than a mile from the Wentworth Hotel, marina and golf, 20 minutes from private jet access and only one hour from Boston.
