Location: Dennis, Massachusetts
Pink and purple, the Rose Victorian of Dennis, Massachusetts (located near the center of Cape Cod), presents a pretty picture of an old house that has been lovingly maintained and restored for the enjoyment of future generations.
Originally built in 1877 for Captain Calvin Baker, the five-bedroom home features many charming period details including hardwood floors, molding, an array of floral wallpaper, gorgeous woodwork, and marble fireplaces.
In addition, several formal rooms like front and back parlors and a dining room, plus a summer porch, a spacious kitchen, and three bathrooms are arranged across a well proportioned 2,863-square-foot floorplan.
It’s no wonder, then, that this elegant residence would play generous hostess to events such as poetry readings, high tea, or any relaxing affair. Located at 485 Main Street, the property, along with its several outbuildings including a carriage house currently operating as a vintage shop, is available for $575,000.
