While purists will most likely shudder at the dearth of c. 1830 in this new Sandwich Village listing, we think the 185-year-old house is looking pretty nice these days. Back in 2008, the property was a bank-owned fixer-upper and sold that December for a $188,900 (here are some old photos of its less-than-lovely days). Fast forward seven years and the 2BR, 2BA antique has been renovated from "top to bottom with quality workmanship, attention to detail and high end finishes." As is so often the case with Upper Cape listings, the brokerbabble goes all in when it comes to location:
Stroll to shops, restaurants, Sandwich Glass Museum, Sandwich Boardwalk and Heritage Museums and Gardens. Popular area for walkers and runners. Easy commute to Boston and just one hour to Logan Airport. Minutes from Cape Cod Canal and Sagamore Bridge. This is a great opportunity to invest in one of the finest streets in Sandwich Village. Perfect home to enjoy all the holiday parades and celebrations in a classic New England Village!Indeed, 17 Pleasant Street has location, location, location. The 2015 asking price is $399,900.
