Beverly's landmark Gately Estate, by noted large-home architect Murray D. Hetherington, has found a buyer willing to drop $710K on the museum-like spectacle. Claiming about 4,200 square feet of living space, the large-lot property also includes a two-bed coach house, gardens, in-ground pool, koi pond, and a hot tub. Stale as the interiors are, the buyer scored some cool vintage features like the paneled library, monumental staircase, three fireplaces, sun room, hardwood floors, and antique lighting fixtures. A dizzying custom kitchen with tin ceilings, tile walls and floors, display cabinets, and bar seating scarcely fits the bill but that's okay. The five-bed manor first asked $919K in May 2011.
