Wacky Orleans Contemporary Can't Find a Buyer

New, 2 comments


It turns out that eclectic '70s style might not have been to blame for the PriceChopper Hall of Fame honoree by way of Wellfleet. Wacky Contemporary listings can be a tough sell all over the Cape. Behold, an Orleans 3BD, 2.5BA with 3,500-square-feet of 1983. On the upside, the 1.39 acre waterfront spread is located where the Namequoit River meets Little Pleasant Bay and features a 110' dock, a tennis court, deeded beach rights to Pilgrim Lake, a 2BR, 1BA guest house, and a two-car garage.

It seems like there should be a safety gate or flares around that sunken bathtub in the lower level bedroom, right? Perhaps when the cameras aren't around or when the sun goes down, something glows or flashes a proper warning. Either way, there have been quite a few updates in the kitchen, great room and media nook that almost make up for the indoor sliders and other architectural treats from 1983. Alas, a buyer has yet to be impressed enough to plunk down the millions that the seller is asking. That's right, the listing first hit the market back in October 2011 looking for $2,495,000. The following three-plus years have brought the pricechopper and priceupper to 60 Pershing Lane on 12 separate occasions as well as the expected game of musical brokers. After a winter hiatus, the property returned to the market this week hoping for $2,375,000.
