"Front Row" Fenwich Beach Home Lists for $6.5M

Finally, in Fenwick, a classic shingle-style home enjoys “front row” status, the name given to the lineup of homes along the water. Offered for $6.5 million, the circa-1900 home has been entirely renovated, enhancing its amenities and ensuring FEMA compliance while retaining iconic features, such as its antique chestnut flooring, beamed whitewashed ceilings and shiplap walls. The 5,000-square-foot interiors seem purpose-built for house parties, especially the beautiful kitchen with a La Cornue gas oven, zinc-topped island, slate sink and adjoining wet bar. And there are five ensuite bedrooms and bathrooms, one of which serves as a nautical-styled bunkroom with stacked beds accommodating a slumber party for eight. Indoor/outdoor features include a wraparound porch with a fireplace and a sunken hot tub, a stone patio with an outdoor kitchen and manicured lawns leading down to the seawall.
