Property Description

Holly Hill - Gracious Living in Saconesset Hills -- Originally the residence of Joseph and Josephine Lilly, this Royal Barry Wills home has the elegance one expects in this private waterfront enclave.

Mature trees and plantings on its estate-like grounds, along with a brick patio, shuffleboard court and swimming pool offer a nexus for entertaining or relaxing. Inside, the charming living space features a grand foyer with circular staircase, built-in bookcases and cabinets, coaching inn-styled family room, butternut-paneled library, beamed ceilings, five bedrooms, six fireplaces and hardwood floors. In addition to the light-filled main living spaces, there is a cozy two-bedroom in-law suite over the four-car garage. A detached barn for boat/car storage is included. An adjacent lot, # 247, is available for the buyer of the main house. Buyer to request an asking price.
