Five Cape And Island Neighborhoods, Five Converted Spaces

Every Thursday, Curbed Comparisons breaks down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Island neighborhoods. This week: converted spaces.

Let's begin on the Cape with this waterfront property in Centerville, at 1187 Craigville Beach Road, originally built in 1923 for plays and musicals. The Playhouse, located on the Centerville River, includes a theater stage set designed by Jo Mielziner as well as "a remarkable entrance door used by Walt Disney as the model for Tinker Bell's castle at the Disney destinations." The 6.2 acre property includes a boathouse, dock and "a light-filled studio overlooking the river." Yours for $3,450,000.

Out in Provincetown, at 571 Commercial Street, we find a bayfront property that was the original site of the Provincetown Playhouse. Built in 1900, the five bedroom, four bathroom in 2,757 sq. ft. includes multiple fireplaces, a large front to back kitchen and "salty summer breezes fresh off the bay accentuate never ending views." There's a deck that literally hangs over the bay, private steps to the beach and "a cascading brick terrace." Last sold in 2003 for $2.7M, the asking price is now $2,599,000.

Out on Nantucket, at 6 Crow's Nest Way, we find a three bedroom, two bath originally used as the village shop for Wauwinet. Built in 1957, there are vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and ocean views from the master bedroom. The property has access to both harbor and ocean beaches, including deeded rights to Squam Beach. Plus, it's conveniently located within stumbling distance to the Wauwinet Hotel. The .51 acre lot has "lovely gardens" and allows for "significant expansion." Yours for $1,750,000.

Back on the Cape in Barnstable Village, at 2874 Main Street, we find a former carriage house now used as a four bedroom, three and a half bath home. Built in 1904, the 4,358 sq. ft. space was once part of a "significant estate." There are lots of original details including wood beams, nooks, built-ins, and rolling interior barn doors. The 1.04 acre private lot is a "private haven," yet is within walking distance to the village, beach and marina. Yours for $1.5M.

This listing has double the adaptive reuse, with both a former barn and post office converted to living spaces. Located in East Sandwich, at 4 Lookout Lane, we find a three bedroom, two and a half bath "architecturally stunning reclaimed Vermont barn." The 3,200 sq. ft. loft-like space has hand-hewn timbers, a double-sided field stone fireplace, custom maple cabinetry, antique light fixtures, hand-forged railings and hardware, and 200 year old wood floors. The separate outbuilding was originally used as a post office and is now "perfect for office/study." That probably means there's no plumbing. There's also a three-bay garage and the main house has a 1,300 sq. ft. finished basement. The 2.9 acre property is close to beaches, Sandwich Village and historic Route 6A. A $100K June pricechop has brought the asking price to $995K.
