The very epitome of a timeless waterfront estate on Cape Cod, Seabrink is an impressive home of majestic proportions, classic coastal style, and lovely light at the tip of North Falmouth. Charles Idoff Brink--who immigrated to the U.S. from Sweden in 1892, founded the outdoor advertising firm C.I. Brink Co., and invented the bulbs that light the iconic Citgo sign above Fenway Park--built the residence as his seaside escape on the banks of Buzzards Bay. The current owners oversaw a careful, thoughtful renovation and expansion that honored the home's vintage aesthetic while providing contemporary comforts, updating the kitchen and baths, and adding a two-car garage with an upper-level bedroom suite. This nine bedroom home has six full bathrooms and four half bathrooms.A stately stone wall with two iron gates introduces the property, opening to a semicircular gravel drive and motor court offering plentiful parking. The facade presents an array of classic elements, from wood shingles and handsome shutters to stone and brick chimneys and balconies with Chippendale railings. The driveway passes through a central porte cochere to a rear paver drive that leads to the estate's basement. The rear of the home is lined with abundant windows and glass doors that face the water and admit glorious natural light.
A curved brick front patio offers a relaxing spot to enjoy fresh air and sunshine and creates an inviting introduction to the home. The formal entry gives way to a sun filled living room with a stacked-stone fireplace, hardwood floors, and striking moldings. Steps away is a formal dining room perfect for watching ships sail by; it opens through multiple glass doors to the pool deck. Through a set of double doors in the living room is a spacious sunroom or all-season porch that gazes out toward the bay. The updated kitchen includes a breakfast area with counter seating, double doors to the backyard deck, superior appliancesincluding a Sub-Zero refrigeratorand a useful butler's pantry.
Nine bedrooms and seven baths meander across the expansive upper level and are linked by a lengthy hallway and a family room with a bay window, a balcony, and a bath. Each bedroom looks out at the waves and the horizon, and the primary suitewhich features window seats and a warming fireplaceopens through two sets of French doors to an enviable terrace facing the water. Four stairways link the two levels. An informal entryway near the garage accesses a delightful casual living area with a fireplace, a dining area, and a kitchen with a bar. The ninth bedroom is a secluded suite above the garage.
The home is surrounded by mature trees, impeccable landscaping, and an emerald lawn rolling toward the waters of Buzzards Bay. The backyard's centerpiece is a shimmering stone-wrapped swimming pool and spa accompanied by a deck perfect for lounging. At the lawn's edge, a romantic arch leads to a stairway that descends to a rocky jetty, a sandy beach, and the sea.
