You Can Live on the Cape Cod Canal for $595K


Yesterday, the Cape Cod Canal celebrated its 100th birthday and, needless to say, owners of this Buzzards Bay abode had a front row seat to the Canaliversary events.

The house itself is whatever, but talk about a backyard! Here's how the brokerbabble breaks down the 1,834-square-footer on .21 waterfront acres:

A rare opportunity to own this direct canal front property with no obstructions between you and the water, fishing, lobstering or watching the tall ships come through. Located near the west entrance of the Cape Cod Canal, this lot is direct waterfront, facing southwest with panoramic views enjoying sunrises and sunsets all year. Originally built in 1952, renovated with many upgrades including: windows, floors, kitchen and bathrooms. Deck railings have all been replaced with Azek for a low maintenance lifestyle. This spacious home offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, laundry, living room with fireplace, dining area, 2 kitchens, and a 4 season sunroom surrounded by glass.There are 2 large decks on the waterside of home. Ample parking with a one car garage under.60 Academy Drive last changed hands in June 2005 for $770,000 and returned in 2010 looking for $725,000. After a year without a buyer, the spread went off the market. Earlier this month, perhaps in honor of the Centennial, the property returned with a reduced ask of $595,000.
