Beautifully sited on the hill behind Front Street and boasting sweeping views of Scituate Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean beyond is this remarkable Craftsman Shingle style home. Believed to be constructed by local merchant William Paley Allen over a century ago, this long admired private residence was once used as a family funeral home and then as a renowned Bed & Breakfast for over 20 years (you may remember it as the Allen House during its time as a Bed & Breakfast).  The Allen House stopped operating as a Bed & Breakfast shortly before its purchase by the present owners in 2007.  The property has been used as a private residence since that time. 

Its ageless charm can be seen in the classic architecture, beautiful woodwork, stylish floors, large windows, grand fireplaces and lovely grounds (complete with newer in-ground pool). This stunning home is just steps to Scituate's hip & happening harbor district. Be careful if you don't want visitors because there are seven delightful bedrooms each with its own lovely en suite full bath. All of the bedrooms and their bathrooms are well appointed and aesthetically appealing.  The top level presents as a grand private suite with a great room, fully equipped kitchen, a bedroom and a spacious full bath.

The main level offers a large foyer, a reception hall, fireplace living room, fireplaced dining room with hallway wet bar/pantry, large kitchen open to an adjacent breakfast room or den, an office with private full bath, a family room with wet bar, a vanity bath, a large bedroom suite with fireplace and spacious full bath, a three season porch and an oversized laundry room with two clothes washers and two clothes dryers.

The second floor offers four lovely bedrooms each with a private full bath.  The central hallway on this level has a wet bar/coffee station.

The third floor offers wonderfully private in-law quarters with spacious great room boasting stunning harbor and village views, a large, full service galley kitchen, a nice bedroom and private full bath.

The East Wing offers ground level walk out access to the side yard where the in ground pool is located.  This level is accessed from the main level by a wide stairway.  On this level, you'll find a reception hall with spacious walk in closet, a private bedroom suite with fireplace and adjoining private full bath.

Adjacent to the property is a separate 10,000 sq ft parcel with over 100 feet of street frontage, a 2 car garage and a town sewer line in the street in front of this parcel - this adjacent parcel can be purchased in conjunction with this residence at an additional price.
