According to the brokerbabble, this Falmouth listing is the "ultimate beach house." Well, the spread certainly is swoon-worthy.
Yup, it's a looker. Originally built in 1900, the shingle-style Gambrel (hello, farmer's porch!) was completely renovated in 2006 to combine "the best of original and period finishings with all of the modern conveniences." Here's how the listing breaks down the old-meets-new results:
The updated kitchen features all stainless steel appliances, pizza oven, custom storage, French Blue Limestone countertops, a modern concrete island, and a pantry made with wood from the original structure. Throughout are stylish light fixtures and creative uses of materials from the original house and other sources including timber from the restoration of the USS Constitution. That's right, some of Old Ironsides can be found inside 297 Quaker Road. Plus, the nip/tuck wasn't just for aesthetics, the spread is now stuffed tight "with super insulation closed cell foam." But back to looks, the 4BR, 4BA 5,600-square-footer overlooks the beloved Old Silver Beach and has "sweeping 270 degree water views of Buzzards Bay and Herring River tidal estuary" thanks to the elevated, west-facing 1.2 acre lot. The sellers picked up the abode back in 2004 for $960,000 and are now looking for $3,750,000.
