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. We're still on our election kick which, naturally, brought us to the Kennedy compound. Thus, this week we're checking out family compounds listed for $599K to $14.995M.
Let's begin out on Nantucket, at 11 Squam Road, where we find a 10 bedroom, 11 bath ocean-front compound on three acres. There's an "elegantly appointed" main residence, guest house, carriage house, tennis/guest cottage, and a four bay garage. Amenities include a tennis court, gym, swimming pool with jacuzzi with a cabana, and two private boardwalks to the beach. We wrote about the property just a few weeks ago when rounding up the Cape and Islands 20 priciest listings and the asking price remains $14,995,000.

Island hopping over to Edgartown, at 258 Katama Road, where we find a newly constructed property (as in 2010) on .85 acres. The four bedroom gambrel main house features custom finishes including beaded board, raised paneling, hard pine flooring, Carrera marble, a state-of-the-art kitchen, mahogany decking, multiple fireplaces, and more. You get the point, this place has checked all the boxes, minus a pool, but the brokerbabble assures us that there's room for a cement pond. The "stylish" one bedroom guesthouse is located across the sunny backyard. First listed in July 2010 for $2,895,000, it's now yours for $2,750,000.

Out in Provincetown, at 12 Atwood Avenue, we find a three building compound in "the heart of the West End." The main house dates to 1800, when it was built on Long Point and later floated over to its current location in 1867. The four bedroom includes lots of original details and a roof deck with "a peek at the bay." The two-story guest cottage was built as an artist's studio in the 1940s and is approximately 700 sq. ft. The property's third building can be used as an artist's studio or storage shed. There's off-street parking and gardens on the .11 acre lot as well. First listed in July 2007 or June 2008 (it's unclear), the listing is old enough for either K-1 or K-2. Just two pricechops have brought the listing down from $1,399,000 to its current ask of $1,125,000.

In South Yarmouth, at 156 Old Main Street, we find a restored family compound "in the heart of the Bass River." The main residence, an "Antique Victorian," is "One of 3 Sister Houses." Is that like HBO's "Big Love"? Who knows. Anyway, the house features a designer kitchen, five fireplaces, seasonally-appropriate pumpkin pine hardwoods (flooring?), and skylights. There are no details about the other structure(s) in the brokerbabble, but there are some exterior photos. The listing hit the market in April 2010 for $869K and four pricechops have brought the asking price to $599,500.

Finally, to Falmouth, at 3-11 Onawa Lane, where we find a five building "true estate or campus" in need of renovation that "may be purchased as a family compound" or divided into two waterfront parcels. Located on Oyster Pond in The Moors, the 2.57 acre property includes three separate addresses. There's a hidden "Picnic Nook," waterside patios and a dock. The listing hit the market in August asking $4,100,000.
