45 Church Road is one of the magnificent oceanside estates so prominent in the Rye Beach Precinct. The property sits on 1.2 acres of well-manicured lawn and is bordered by mature trees and woodland, creating a private seaside retreat. This gated estate elicits memories of days when summer residents strolled the lane on their way to and from the Ocean. Entering the residence from the majestic stone portico brings you immediately to the grand staircase, which graces the entrance hall and its imported European travertine floor. The expansive staircase winds up to a veranda that leads to both the South and North wings of the upper floor. Two master suites anchor each wing and a third bedroom suite sits across from one of the balconies that overlook the floor below. The expansive kitchen, complete with white lacquered custom cabinetry and high-end appliances is perfect for creating a gourmet meal for guests. Later, dine in the elegant formal dining room featuring a hand-crafted natural wood bar and china cabinet with inlaid granite covering the entire South wall of the room. Detailed architecture adorns every room of the estate. Hand-painted and glazed crown molding and hand-crafted Venetian plaster enhance several rooms. The lovely cathedral ceiling in the sitting room, accented by surrounding cove lighting, highlights the elegance of this property. This private and peaceful property exudes luxury, charm and grandeur, a magical combination for a family estate.
