294-Year-Old Centerville Beauty Hits the Market for $1.8M

New, 1 comment

Cape Cod fun fact: this circa 1720 beauty is the sixth oldest home on the market right now. That said, the Centerville abode isn't one of those quaint money pits that people buy after marathoning through too many "This Old House" episodes - and later regret. This spread has been restored from top-to-bottom which has left the place move-in ready and rather lovely.

Yup, that's old-meets-new done right thanks to CH Newton Builders. The ask for the "historically restored to perfection" house at 700A South Main Street is $1,795,000. Here's how the listing sums up the 4,000-square-footer:

This home dazzles with it's wide pine plank floors, 5 fireplaces, custom milled moldings and custom made windows. The gourmet kitchen has a commercial range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and bee hive oven. The wet bar with mahogany woodwork and polished zinc sink is stunning. The master bedroom with it's en suite bath is complete with marble tiling, polished nickel fixtures, and radiant heated floors and walls. The roof terrace allows for views to Nantucket Sound or of the private bluestone patio graced by a 300 year old Beech tree. The three car carriage house completes the setting. What, no mention of that gorgeous laundry room? Anyway, if the 3BD, 3.5BA on two acres isn't enough for you, the neighboring house at 700B South Main Street (below) is also available for $695K. It's currently a cute cottage on 1.45 acres, but is listed as a potential tear down as well.
