It's time once again for Curbed Comparisons, where we break down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Islands neighborhoods. This week, listings for $450,000.
? Kicking off in Hyannis with The Crowell-Smith House, a 3BR, 1.5BA Federal style built in 1871 for Captain Abner Crowell. The property was moved to its current location in the 1950s so it's safe to assume the foundation is an upgrade from the one dug for the Captain. Since then, the detail molding, wide pine floors, four fireplaces of the 2,140 square foot residence have been restored and a newer addition, featuring kitchen with custom cherry cabinets and stainless steel appliances, has been completed. The listing hit the market in mid-April for $465,000, but quickly met with the pricechopper before the month was over. Asking price is now $450,000.
? Now out to Wellfleet to check out a 3BR, 2BA. Built in 1875, this 975 square foot residence is currently being used a residence and art studio/gallery. The .07 acre property is close to downtown Wellfleet and features a garden shed with electricity and running water. Yours for $449,000.
? Over in Harwich we find a 4BR, 2BA asking $459,000. Built in 1820, the brokerbabble defines the style as a "classic farmhouse style cape," whatever that means. The 2,295 square foot residence on a .48 acre lot has been recently renovated and features a decorative fireplace, wood floors and a great room with a cathedral ceiling.
? Ferrying to Edgartown, here's a 3BR, 2BA for $439,000. Built in 1984, this 1,324 square foot Contemporary Cape understandably lacks the patina of the above listings, but more than makes up for it with an abundance of closet space and a private lot.
? Finally, a ferry trip to Nantucket. According to the brokerbabble, This .14 acre lot has "Potential for more than 2,500 square feet of ground cover." The property first hit the market in July 2010 with a $550,000 price tag. The pricechopper headed to the Naushop lot in October 2010, bringing the ask down to the current $450,000.
