A Possible First Home Just Steps from the Kennedy Compound

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Hyannisport, Mass.
Price: $279,900
The Skinny: Situated in the heart of the Cape Cod community of Hyannisport, this fixer-upper ranch house sits just blocks from the famous—and famously expensive—waterfront mansions of the Kennedy Compound. But while those sprawling homes are asking millions, this modest home is listed for just $280K. Sure the place is lacking in oceanfront cache and architectural grandeur, but the beaches are still close at hand, as is the golf club and the nearby marina. The backyard pool provides a place to cool off and a tropical vibe emanates from the "tiki room," complete with bamboo bar. Inside are three bedrooms, but just one bath, while outside is a quarter of an acre in need of landscaping.
