I’m fortunate to be part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network. Not only does it allow me to see some truly exceptional homes on a regular basis, but it also provides me with the opportunity to market my exclusive listings on a local, national and international stage.
When you list with me you’re not only getting exposure here in the Cape Ann real estate market, but rather the entire world. In today’s blog post I’m going to feature a collection of homes around the world, courtesy of my network of affiliates. All of these beautiful homes are all Cape Cod style estates. They may vary in detail, location and appearance but they are all exceptional. I hope you enjoy them.
Bay Harbor, Michigan – This is the Best home available in Bay Harbor! Owning this glorious property allows you to live in the exclusive Northern Michigan resort known as Bay Harbor. The house is designed to flow and work comfortably. The gourmet kitchen is at the heart of this massive open floor plan. A full second kitchen tucked into the butler’s pantry makes for neat prep for the home chef or the caterer. Large gathering spaces help support wonderful times with friends and family. Hang out around the kitchen island, enjoy the spacious lower level bar and game room or move the party outside to the huge deck and pool patio. Meanwhile, the main floor master suite and the other well-designed and spacious 6 sleeping suites promote peace and privacy. The commanding view of Lake Michigan provides wondrous sunsets while the Bay Harbor Lake basin and docks brings yacht- watching supreme. For more information on this beautiful home, click here.
Marstons Mills, Massachusetts – It’s Friday and I am returning from lunch on the Vineyard on my 42-foot Hinckley. Meandering my way through Prince Cove I can see our weekend guests waiting for me on the dock. I know the first item on the agenda is a swim in the salt water pool and I head to the cabana to stir up some drinks and a few hors d’oeuvres. I know we have a formal dinner planned so a few take to the outside shower and others to one of the 6 full baths. The chef is busy in the gourmet kitchen and steaks on the Lynx grill are part of the second course. We move to the Tiger Maple coffered ceiling library for dessert. I challenge the men to a game of pool and the ladies decide to watch Downton Abbey in the Media Room. Others head outside for a night cap by the glass fire pit before retiring to one of the 5 bedrooms. Life is amazing at 250 Baxters Neck Road. For more information on this beautiful home, click here.
Jamestown, Rhode Island – Enjoy spectacular Mackerel Cove views from this turn-key, beautifully renovated waterfront shingle-style. Views span from the beach to the ocean while the lot offers complete privacy.

Charming details abound as sun pours in every window with a cathedral ceiling in the living room and spacious first-floor master suite.
