The property includes an additional .24 acre lot, Asian gardens with a tea house and koi pond, plus a deeded walkway to the beach across the street. According to the brokerbabble, the 1,042 sq. ft. three bedroom, two bath was "Once lived in by Captain Bangs!" We don't know who he was, but with a name like that...never mind. The bangin' abode originally hit the market back in November 2008 for $1,495,000. The pre-school age listing changed brokers in March of this year and chopped 26.4% from the listing price, which now weighs in at $1.1M.

Finally, to South Yarmouth, at 87 Old Main Street, where according to the brokerbabble we find a "super charming antique victorian farmhouse." We were trying to include a price point for mere mortals, but unfortunately, there's nothing charming about the listing photos. Back to the subject at hand, the house was built in 1868 and includes details such as sculptured shingling, a square parlor with a bay window and multiple porches. The 1,726 sq. ft. four bedroom, two bath sits on just over an acre and is close to both Windmill Beach and Bass River Village. The property hit the market in August 2011 asking $399,900. A second pricechop on November 24 brought the asking price down to $369,900.
