When Aerosmith sang “Livin’ on the Edge,” they probably weren’t talking about prime real estate in Duxbury. But that’s just what you’ll find in guitarist Joe Perry’s 7.14-acre estate known as Brook Haven Farm, which just hit the market for $4,500,000.
For weeks, the estate at 1405 and 1399 Tremont St. has featured a “coming soon” sign out in front of its double-gated entrance, neighbors tell us. Now it’s ready for the taking. With two homes boasting a total of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms (four full, four half), the property features towering ceilings and stunning custom woodwork, as well as some unique features befitting the home of a famous Aerosmith guitarist: guitar emblems carved into the marble flooring of the entryway, guitar heads visible on the balcony above, and a swimming pool in the shape of (what else?) a guitar.
Inside the 14-room, 7,181-square-foot main house, a spacious kitchen with hardwood floors, quartz counters, and white painted cabinetry features a long island with bar seating. It’s equipped with stainless-steel appliances, as well as a comfortable dining area next to a fireplace.
A high-tech media room is filled with natural light and is connected to a grand living room featuring pine floors and a stone fireplace.
The luxurious first-floor primary suite is a private oasis, complete with a stone fireplace, a dressing room with a walk-in closet, and a bathroom with dual vanities and a jetted tub with mural fronts.
Also on the first floor is the billiards room, where gold albums and priceless memorabilia dot the walls.
On the second floor, there’s a family room, as well as a rooftop deck, as well as more bedrooms.
In the basement, you may notice the intricate tiling leading into “The Boneyard,” the former location of the studio where Aerosmith recorded the albums ”Just Push Play” and ”Honkin’ on Bobo,” the Globe previously reported. The studio has since been removed “because it was so personal,” said Janet Koelsch of Coldwell Banker Realty in Scituate, who has the listing. “We felt we couldn’t sell the property with that in place …. But it was a place that was absolutely adored.”
The property also features a detached stone carriage house, which measures 1,290 square feet. That three-room structure, which includes Perry’s personal gym, has a rooftop garden and a sparkling swimming pool shaped like a guitar with a stone patio.
The Perry family’s love of horses is evident in the three-stall barn with a tack room, which has beautiful views of the marsh and a spring-fed pond, as well as an arched bridge above a brook that leads to walking paths by the water.
“To put the whole property on the location where it sits on the marsh, it’s like a sanctuary,” Koelsch said. “It provides that feeling of sanctuary within nature.”
The property is composed of two parcels being sold together. The main house, which the Perry family purchased in the 1980s, is on 2.5 lush acres. There was an antique home on the adjoining property that the Perrys razed, providing 4.5 additional buildable acres to the existing 2.5.
As for who might buy the home, Koelsch said, the property would be a fit for a variety of buyers.
“The number of bedrooms would warrant a family, and the grounds would warrant someone with animals,” Koelsch said. “It’s just got something for everyone.”
