We love to be surprised by listings. A Poggenpohl kitchen inside a circa 1861 colonial? Love it. A spread with its very own sports barn? Bring it. The strange, weird and/or terrible? Obviously. Thus, we perked up when reading the brokerbabble for this Oak Bluffs 4BD, 4BA with promises of "a pleasant digression from your average luxury retreat" and assurances of "many surprises!" Spoiler alert: the most surprising thing about this pricey 1980s Contemporary is that it's not hideous.
See? Thanks to Hutker Architects, the 3,135 square footer managed to enter 2014 without calling too much attention to it's 1986 roots. Surprise! Set on a "landscaped acre that gently undulates to 121' private water frontage with 100' dock on Lagoon Pond," the Barnes Road abode is asking $2,975,000.
