This stunning executive home in Day Valley caters to every season: relax by the pool in the summer, cozy up by one of 3 fireplaces in the winter, watch the hills change vibrant colors in the fall, & refresh in the spring with the ocean view from your soaker bathtub. And that’s just the beginning. This sprawling estate on nearly 2 oak-studded acres is in the premiere Forest & Meadows neighborhood. No need to refer to your wish list – it’s all here.

It’s the backyard, though, that’s the ultimate retreat: being on the ground floor gives a huge swath of oceanfront property to enjoy year-round.

“Buying a home during Covid seemed daunting, but Spencer quickly put us at ease with his knowledge of the local market, eye for potential, and desire to understand exactly what we were hoping to find in our next home. When we decide to sell and level up, Spencer will be my first call.”
