Two Mammoth Massachusetts Mansions That May Be Too Luxurious
Is it possible to have a home that is too luxurious? The fact that two ultra high end Massachusetts homes have been on and off the market for the last year without being snatched up seems to say yes.
One has the distinction of being the most expensive home in the entire Bay State and the other is a literal playground in the woods.
Yet both are still available for someone with the money to buy them.
Personally if I could spring for it, the former Yankee Candle owner's Leverett retreat would be the one I'd buy in a heartbeat.
This 120,000 square foot home on 60 acres of wooded property is the only place you'd ever need to go. It has 16 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, spa, four tennis courts, two car barns, 9-hole golf course, pool, indoor water park, full-size auditorium, stage equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual systems, basketball court, arcade, bowling alley, movie theater (I'm running out of breath listing everything) and believe it or not, more.
It's how being a hermit should be - alone in the woods with all the entertainment you'll ever need. Just ship me some food and I'm good to go.
Alas it doesn't have the one thing most home buyers in Massachusetts dream of. A beach.
While Leverett may be miles from the shore, the most expensive house in Massachusetts sits right on it.
The $48 million property dubbed 'Beams End' has nearly a mile of beachfront and a front row view of Nantucket Harbor.
It also has plenty of amenities itself. Pool room, patios galore, water views from nearly every room.
So how are these high end homes still for sale? Are they too expensive to sell?
See inside each palatial properties for yourself and see if you'd spend that kind of money to own them.
