Long Beach Road occupies a beautiful stretch of sandy beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This stately home was built in 1930 by Bernard McGoldrick whose wife was not well and was told by her doctor to live at sea level. Thus, this was the first home built on Long Beach for year-round living.
The home later became the property of Massachusetts Governor Paul Dever in the 1950s. Dever, who was friends with Kennedy patriarch Joe Kennedy, held fundraisers for John F. Kennedy’s Senate run at this home. JFK and his wife, Jackie, would dance during dinner parties as the piano played throughout the night.
The main dining room of the home featured a mural, “Scenes of North America” designed by Jean Zuber et Cie. Future First Lady Jackie Kennedy admired the wallpaper so much that she had it hung in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. The mural remains on the walls of the White House to this day.
This stately beach retreat is rich in history and period elegance. This 13-room oceanfront property has been tastefully upgraded to today’s standards, while preserving the elegance and panache of yesteryear.
