There is so much more to this antique than you would imagine just looking at from the road. We Just previewed this 1820 Cape, listed by Team Tom Dillon at eXp Realty, situated on over an acre on historic 6A in Yarmouth Port and wanted to let our old house enthusiasts know about this nicely renovated antique.
First, the house. Walking into the mudroom from the back door we looked right and saw the most charming laundry room. From the hallway we entered the kitchen. It has a bit of an industrial vibe with 6’ wide built-in Viking refrigerator, stainless steel open shelves, restaurant style center island and stove. One of the best features is that while you are waiting for your “pot to boil” you can relax in the sitting room portion of the kitchen that includes a wall of bookshelves for all your cookbooks.
Who doesn’t want their dining room off the kitchen? This house has a spacious dining room with fireplace that flows from the kitchen. Although the fireplace is non-working now, the ambience is there and you may be able to convert it to gas if you choose. After a fabulous meal in the dining room, we imagined relaxing in the adjacent living room. If hosting a large family gathering, both rooms could easily accommodate the relatives.
Upstairs was another pleasant surprise--3 spacious bedrooms and full bath with walk-in shower. All the bedrooms are accessed off the hall. No old house quirk here, where you go through one bedroom to get to another. Yet, there was a door that connected two bedrooms, so if you have kids who like to be together, this house is perfect. There is a fourth bedroom on the first floor with full bath including a tub if you prefer to be away from the kids or for all your guests who will want to visit you on Cape Cod.
The biggest surprise was the barn. All we can say is wow! We walked into a huge room downstairs and then into a light filled shed roof addition behind it with sliding doors. The doors led outside to a beautiful patio overlooking a large luxurious grass area and remaining acreage beyond. Oh, did we mention that this property has 1.13 fenced acres? Perfect for the garden enthusiast or kids you want to have a private place to play. Upstairs in the barn was another large room with home theatre. Perfect for “movie night” with family and friends.
There is so much more to this totally updated property—too much to write in one post. If this sounds intriguing and you would like to have a peek, click here or give us a call, 774-994-1337.
