Location: Orleans, Massachusetts
Price: $779,000

Though it was built nearly 300 years ago, this circa-1730 Cape Cod abode looks darling as ever sitting on its picture-perfect 0.54-acre lot in 2016. The classic cape, named The Margaret Stanger House for the That Quail, Robert author who once owned the home, was first listed last September 2015 for $825K but after a few new price cuts, now lingers on the market seeking $779K. But what's not to love? The home, clocking in at roughly 2,400 square feet after a few extensions, charmingly combines old and new, boasting a renovated kitchen and bedrooms (there are 4!) and refurbished barn wood and exposed beams (said to be from an old shipwreck.) Other highlights include the lovely garden room with French doors, and well, the pristine garden itself.
