Castle Hill is the centerpiece of the spectacular 2,100 acre Crane Estate, which is owned and managed by The Trustees of Reservations. The Great House, a glorious 59-room Stuart-style mansion, presides over Castle Hill’s 165 acres of designed and natural landscapes with commanding panoramic views of the ocean. Its famous, rolling lawn - the Grand Alleé - stretches half a mile from the portico of the Great House to the precipitous bluffs which overlook Crane Beach, a four-mile expanse of pristine, white-sand beaches and meandering trails across dunes also part of The Crane Estate.
