Well, this was a fast one. After hitting the market in the middle of March, this ocean view four bedroom, two and a half bath on a 1.3 acre lot is already listed as "under contract."
The 1996 property was given a complete before-and-after by its interior designer owner, Laura Urban, with the intention of giving the house a "cottage feel with touches of shingle style" inspired by legendary decorator Elsie de Wolfe. Whether the decor is your thing or not, those views of Cape Cod Bay, the chef's kitchen, perennial English gardens, "sounds of crashing waves and salt air breezes," access to a sandy association beach, and privacy caused someone to jump on the place. The 3,485 sq. ft. house was listed for $1,495,000. Any thoughts on what the buyer paid? Let us know in the comments section.
