Wall Street Journal spotlights spectacular Cape Cod estate

On the western side of Cape Cod, overlooking Red Brook Harbor and the outlying Buzzards Bay, this $15.995 million Cape Cod estate recently made headlines with an exclusive article in The Wall Street Journal when it came to market. 

The article highlights the history of the home as told by its current owners, all its stunning amenities, and its preeminent location. 

Describing a fond memory of an early visit to the home, Marybeth Bisson, who owns the property with her husband, Stephen Bisson, told the Journal, “There are these two beautiful stone pillars at the end of the property, and as I came through those I turned to Steve, and I said, ‘I have goosebumps.’” 

Represented by Paul Grover of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Robert Paul Properties, 178-180 Scraggy Neck Road sits on a majestic 17.5-acre compound and comes with everything you need to enjoy the Cape lifestyle. 

This substantial private peninsular is home to a 20-foot deep-water dock, multiple sandy beaches, a 9,037-square-foot main residence, and a 4,050-square-foot guest house with three bedrooms.

The property was rebuilt by the Bissons in 2009, who chose to design the primary house with large windows in order to take advantage of the spectacular views, they told the newspaper.

While you can enjoy gorgeous water vistas from any window in the house, for the best views, a trip up to the top floor is in order, where the observatory/lounge offers panoramic views and a full wet bar.

Back on ground level, the chef's kitchen leads seamlessly into the main living area—making for a great space to entertain guests—and features dramatic double-height ceilings, a built-in breakfast banquette looking out over the harbor, top-of-the-line appliances, and a butler's pantry.

For those who like to keep active, you’re spoilt for choice with amenities. On site you’ll find a tennis court, both indoor and outdoor pools, a gym, sauna, steam shower, and a locker room. 

A wraparound terrace encircles the primary suite, allowing for further panoramic water views, while the additional bedrooms all enjoy similar scenes. Each bedroom features an ensuite bathroom. 

From the boat dock, take a day trip to the Cape islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, or nearby Bassetts Island that can be seen from the property across the harbor. Chart Room, a famed seafood restaurant in the idyllic village of Cataumet, can be accessed by boat across the bay, while major hubs such as Boston and Providence are an hour away by car.
