Bringing the years 1740 and 2014 together in anything, never mind a property on the National Register of Historic Places, is no simple task, but the current owner of Yarmouth Port's Ezekial Hallet House definitely knows how to get the job done. The 3BD, 2BA has been updated and restored and is now a 1,589-square-foot beauty.
Since there's no floorplan, here's how the listing sums up the old-meets-new abode:
You enter this sophisticated cape via a path to a lovely patio which opens to the updated kitchen or sliding doors to the vast great room with a grand fireplace with original mantel and hardware. An elegant, formal dining room leads to a porch-like sunroom and a vestibule to the first floor bedroom. Upstairs has a spacious master, walk in closet, laundry, great new bath and a third bedroom/office.Outside, the fenced yard features a garden, a saline/gunite pool, "a classic two story barn with a one car garage," a shower, and manicured lawn. The .48 acre Willow Street spread sits on the corner of the rather lovely Route 6a and is "a short stroll to Y-Port food, shops and Mill Creek." Last sold as an estate sale fixer-upper in 2010 for $315,000 , the Ezekial Hallet House is now asking $610,000.
