Location: Dennis, Massachusetts

Price: $425,000

This adorable colonial in Dennis, Massachusetts, comes with the added benefit of being zoned for mixed-use, making it an ideal place to live and work—and play. Built in 1787, the 2,160-square-foot home has been updated and expanded over the years, but many historic details remain.

These elements include paneled walls painted in vibrant colors, gorgeous wide-plank floor boards, and multiple fireplaces (that are currently boarded up). A formal parlor with deep red paneling sets the stage for the rest of the house. From there, a living room follows behind, then a spacious country style kitchen. Another sitting room is found on the opposite side of the parlor at the front of the residence.

Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms, with a fourth one located in an addition at the back of the house with direct access to the backyard. This room could easily be used as a studio. As for bathrooms, there are three: one full bath and two half baths. It is currently being used as an office, but the home has also been a gallery, gift shop, and antique store in its past lives. The possibilities are virtually endless. Located at 632 Main Street, it’s offered at $425,000. Take a look.
