An Extraordinarily Stunning Home
We stayed in Swampscott for the Memorial Day Holiday. It says a great deal about this home that it rained five days out of seven and yet we had a wonderful time. The house is very welcoming and there are so many places to spend time. Our favorite was the covered porch in front of the house. The house has four gas fireplaces that we used and they are in very welcoming locations throughout the house. We especially loved the one in the kitchen, a natural gathering place. You can see the water and the beautiful grounds of the central commons from the front porch. The grounds were designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, who was the father of American landscaper architecture, including his design of Central Park and Prospect Park in Nee York. The owner, Alice, was always available for any questions and gave us great suggestions. We hope to return to this very special place. Cecilia Kempton and Don Anderson ”
