Photos of the place (coffered ceiling in the living room!), map and bird's eye view at the Zillow page below. The leaves are off the trees in the photo but when they are on it is tough or impossible to view the ocean from the home, unlike in Eliot's childhood.
Henry and Tom left their initials carved in the attic.
