Gorgeous 18th-Century Orleans Cape Drops to $779K

When this recently listed Orleans Cape was built, the oldest house for sale on Cape Cod was already nearly a century old. That said, the circa 1730 abode is still wicked old. The rather lovely 285-year-old was originally The Jonathan Higgins House, but is more recently known as the Margaret Stanger House for the "former owner and author of the well-known book, That Quail Robert." Set on .54 acres, the restored 4BR, 3BA antique is "a perfect blend of old and new" with four fireplaces, a garden room, "renovated kitchen with black honed granite counter tops, gleaming wood floors throughout the house, a blend of original & refurbished from old barn wood, exposed beams believed to be taken from an old ship wreck." In addition, the new first floor master suite features an "outdoor garden shower of Eden!" Now on the market for three months, the price for the 2,405-square-foot charmer recently dropped from $825,000 to $779,000.
