MANCHESTER — The new owners of Seahome will occupy two homes on their own private peninsula and skip the 10-year town waiting list for a mooring because the oceanfront estate comes with a fully licensed deep-water dock — all for the record price of $11 million.

The price may sound high, but it’s a bargain compared to what the property was listed for in 2004: $17.75 million. Other luxury homes in this exclusive seaside town are also being offered at reduced, if multi-million-dollar prices as even normally immune high-end homes sales are affected by the tight real estate market.

Seahome, at 16 and 18B Boardman Ave., was sold earlier this month to Mark and Becky Levin by Wendy Bolland and Wendy Slater. The two homes on the property — the main residence and the smaller “Tea House” — sit on about 41/2 acres and have a combined total of 32 rooms and 14,533 square feet of living space.

Mark Levin, 56, is the former chief executive officer and a founder of Cambridge-based Millennium Pharmaceuticals, which develops and markets anti-cancer and other drugs. Becky Levin is the founder, chairwoman and chief executive officer of Boston-based Levin and Co., an executive search firm that specializes in recruiting for life science and venture capital companies.

Melissa Lindberg, director of marketing at the MLS Property Information Network, which tracks home sales, said the sale price of Seahome is the highest single-family price ever recorded for the North Shore by the Multiple Listing Service.

Three years ago, the Gloucester Times reported skyrocketing oceanfront home prices in Manchester.
