"Live the beach cottage life while putting your own creative design ideas to work!" Translation: be prepared to drop some time, talent and treasure on this Eastham bricolage by the beach.
Built in 1951, the "vintage" abode has been added onto over the years, for better or for worse, and somehow manages to squeeze five-bedrooms and two full baths into 1,308-square-feet. On the upside, the listing assures that 10 Bayberry Lane is not in a flood zone, has views of Cape Cod Bay from the rooftop deck and is just "steps from First Encounter Beach....two association paths will take you there." Asking price for the bricks-beams-cottage-Colonial-kitchen shingles-carpet-and-more mishmash by the shore is $899,000.
