Location: Falmouth, Massachusetts
Originally belonging to the founders of the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, Massachusetts, this 6,544-square-foot estate embodies Cape Cod elegance.
Once past the charming brick facade, you’ll find a graceful foyer with a curved staircase and generously-sized rooms with large windows, hardwood floors, and six fireplaces altogether.
The eat-in kitchen is a tasteful blend of more traditional white cabinetry and sleek stainless steel appliances, while the coaching inn-styled family room next door offers a cozy place to lounge with exposed beams, wood-paneled walls, and bar area.
In addition to five bedrooms, there’s a butternut-hued library with built-in shelves and cabinets and a separate two-bedroom suite over the four-car garage.
The 1.38-acre property comes with a shuffleboard court, brick patio, and pool—plus access to the private beach of Saconesset Hills a bit farther down the street.
