Mid-century modern lovers, rejoice! A Wellfleet 3BD, 1.5BA designed by architect Olav Hammarström is on the market for the first time ever.
Like Hammarström's Saarinen House, this Wellfleet abode is located within the Cape Cod National Seashore and, per the listing, "has been kept true to its roots." Built in 1960, the 2,498 sf home was designed in the Bauhaus tradition and, as one of the Outer Cape's nearly 100 modernist homes, has been noted in the Cape Cod Commission Modern House Inventory for the Wellfleet Historic Review Board. For those with more beachy concerns, the 1.05 acre spread is a "quick walk" to the Atlantic Ocean. Asking price is $845,000.
