Every Week, Curbed Comparisons breaks down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Islands neighborhoods. This week, we're checking out bed & breakfast inns listed for $599K to $3.85M.
Let's begin in West Barnstable, at 651 Main Street, where we find "one of the oldest homesteads on the Cape." Built in 1670, the Bursley Manor was originally a dairy farm. Currently run as a three bedroom B&B, the seven bedroom, eight bath property features a granite and stainless kitchen, a beehive oven fireplace in the living room, a separate apartment plus a one bedroom post and beam carriage house. The 3,912 sq. ft. residence first hit the market in June asking $850K. A September $5K pricechop (more of a sliver, really) brought the ask to $845K.

Now to Barnstable Village, at 4352 Main Street, where we find a "charming and elegant 19th century home." Built in 1700, the five bedroom, five bath is listed on the National Historic Registry and features an updated kitchen, two decks and a large third floor space that would make an "ideal family/game room." The licensed B&B hit the market in July asking $629K. A few weeks ago, the property met with the pricechopper and the ask was reduced $30K to $599K. Not that the same can't be said for a few of the above listings, but perhaps some better photos might help move things along?
