Overlooking Cohasset Harbor, ‘The Oaks’ is one of New England’s finest waterfront estates, with over 1,800 feet of ocean frontage and its own private state of the art 112′ deep water dock. Once the home of Clarence Barron and family, former owner of the Wall Street Journal and one of the most influential figures in the history of Dow Jones & Company, the iconic Georgian-style residence makes up 9.41 acres of coastline and has been meticulously maintained. The exterior’s bucolic charm is fittingly complemented by the interior’s neoclassical features and the property overflows with luxurious amenities, including multiple terraces/decks, swimming pool, tennis court, skating pond, BBQ grills, Jacuzzis, and private sandy beach. Additional outbuildings include a pool house with kitchen and carriage house with full bath, perfect for an additional residence. A timeless estate with historic provenance, an unmatched location, and every imaginable comfort—this opportunity is not to be missed.
