A number of the mountaineering trails date to the 1700s, and run by means of forests, wetlands and bluffs. The property “is heaven,” stated Mary Ellen McGuire, a Brown Harris Stevens dealer who repped the customer and vendor. “It’s probably the most fantastic, magical, lovely piece of property,” including that it comes with a stairway that results in the seaside, and it’s so elevated that it isn’t a part of any flood zone.
