The Skinny: We've written about this waterfront compound since October 2012 for Curbed Comparisons as well as monthly on our map of the 20 priciest listings on the Cape & Islands. Alas, Wood Hole's Fairview has found a suitor. The property had been asking $14,000,000 since hitting the market in October 2010 and never once took a meeting with the pricechopper. Sticktoittiveness paid off and the listing moved into the sold column last week when it traded hands for $11,750,000. So, just what does one get for almost $12 million in Woods Hole? Well, there's a circa 1918 shingle-style main house "ready for a major make-over," a renovated three bedroom guest cottage, a renovated three bedroom carriage house, a boathouse, two additional cottages, a greenhouse, formal gardens, a small sandy beach, 890' on Little Harbor, and views of Vineyard Sound and the Elizabeth Islands. Or, as the brokerbabble put it, "Fairview is one of the most spectacular properties in Woods Hole and arguably on the whole east coast." So there.
