"Perfection in the Ponds!" So begins the brokerbabble for this new Truro listing and we couldn't agree more. Designed in 1953 by interior designer-turned architect-turned academic Serge Chermayeff, this updated 3BR, 2BA is really rather lovely. The 1,559-square-foot home features soaring ceilings, a new(ish) kitchen, and two screened-in porches. Set on 3.6 "serene acres in the Cape Cod National Seashore with views of the pond and the sea," the midcentury gem is "within easy walking distance to both a gorgeous swimming pond and the Atlantic Ocean." Asking price for the woodsy classic is $1,575,000.
