Feast your eyes on the new oldest house for sale on Cape Cod. Located in Sandwich, the Cape's oldest town, the 3BR, 1.5BA dates to 1639, the very same year that the town was incorporated. While the circa 1640 listing we wrote about in April was once owned by an ancestor of three U.S. presidents, this Sandwich spread (ha!) holds no such distinction, but it does overlook Shawme Pond, making it a rare find in terms of historic homes. The 1,800 square foot waterfront antique has been "meticulously maintained" and features original detail galore including multiple fireplaces and beamed ceilings. Outside, the .25 acre property includes a private dock and professional landscaping. In addition, the "classic New England village" locale means there is walkability to "shops, restaurants, Sandwich Glass Museum, Sandwich Boardwalk and Heritage Museums." Asking price for the 376-year-old is $575,000.
