18th Century Half Cape for sale in S. Yarmouth, offered at $479,000

Historic Half Cape near Bass River in South Yarmouth for sale
It was a treat to preview this gorgeous, 18th century, half cape home which sits on a lovely half acre, walking distance to Bass River and Nantucket Sound beaches.  Amazingly, the home began its life on the island of Nantucket and was later floated over to Cape Cod.  For historic home enthusiasts, this house is the holy grail.  The owners, Nancy and Garry, who are experienced in restoring antique homes, have a keen eye for detail.  Each and every 9 over 6 window was removed, stripped back to bare wood, and reglazed and painted, preserving the charming wavy glass.  Wide pine floors anchor the rooms in a deep warm finish.

Large open dining area and living room

And the kitchen, Oh, the enchanting kitchen!  Nancy lovingly scraped years of paint off a corner cupboard, exposing the charming original blue finish.  It sits proudly on the new marble counter where it provides stylish, ample storage.
