If you like ocean views, it doesn’t get much better than this.

251 Green Dunes Drive in Barnstable is set directly on a private beach and boasts views of Nantucket Sound, Martha’s Vineyard, and more. The 8.93-acre estate — which has a 10,760-square-foot main house with five bedrooms, six baths, and two half baths — is listed for $19,500,000.

The home’s facade has some traditional New England architectural features, such as shingles and stone, but there’s also a 40-foot tower and three-story rotunda.

Inside the main house, there’s lots of natural light streaming through the large windows, making the most of the ocean views. The high ceilings add to the home’s openness.

The kitchen boasts white cabinets and built-ins, granite, and stainless-steel appliances. The center island has room for seating. Other interior amenities include an indoor pool, a gym, a sauna, and a wine cellar.

The estate also includes a 1,700-square-foot carriage house and a six-car garage.
