Feast your eyes on this Italian palazzo-style living in a villa set on the New England coast that could literally be on Lake Como in Italy, but instead sits on the North Shore bluffs of the Atlantic outside Boston.

Welcome to 321 Ocean Avenue in Marblehead, Massachusetts.  It's listed by Matt Dolan and Dick McKinley with Sagan Harborside Sotheby's International Realty, Team Harborside in Marblehead.

And this stunning home is not just any seaside villa, as it literally sits out on a bluff with sweeping views of the ocean.  I've attached a gallery of photos so you can see for yourself why some Lake Como villas in Italy may be a bit envious.

This spacious and gracious home is more than 4,300 square feet of original charm with marble, wood, and iron all creating period details, as the listing says, with modern amenities and updates.  And as I mentioned, it literally sits on a bluff over the ocean.

And the landscaping is so tasteful, with the rugged beach below creating a perfect mix of natural and groomed in the lawns and gardens with a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.

Almost everywhere in this home you'll find breathtaking vistas and the sounds of the sea that we New Englanders love so much.  This home has its own private gate, and gives you complete and private access to the rocks, ocean, and beach below.  It's a perfect family home with 5 bedrooms, en-suite baths, spa-like master bath, and arched windows, French doors, and floor to ceiling windows throughout.

Let's now take a peek around this spectacular seaside home on the market for $4,480,000 on just over an acre of privacy.
