Sigmund Freud Once Spent Time in This Dreamy Cotuit Colonial

According to the listing for this circa 1900 Cotuit Colonial, "it is recorded that Sigmund Freud once spent time here." Did the father complex of modern psychology etch his initials in a windowsill or take a selfie (on a couch, of course)? We'll just have to take the brokerbabble at its word. Regardless, the 3,554 square foot five bedroom, four bath is rather dreamy (sorry) with its wood floors, four fireplaces, claw foot bathtubs, and covered porches. The 1.6 acre property even includes a post office. Well, not a working one, but the original Wianno Post Office, a separate outbuilding that's currently used for storage. Although assessed for $666,600 (analyze that!), asking price for the "heart of the village" - as in, walking distance to the beach, village center and the Cotuit Kettleers' home field, Lowell Park - property is $895,000.
