1. Dockuminium

Copy Link
1 Shipyard Lane
Pocasset, MA 02559

Kicking off at Kingman Yacht Center with a Dockominium lease for 99 years (began in 1989). "The slip will house a vessel up to 40 feet in length and 14 feet wide" and is yours for $135,000.

2. Julia Roberts

Copy Link
16 Massachusetts Court
Falmouth, MA 02540

Per the brokerbabble, "Julia Roberts stayed in this guest house." The folks over at The Real Cape were unimpressed, but if you are and you've got $2.7 million, ocean views and a celebrity connection await.

3. Airpark Abode

Copy Link
49 Quimby Lane
East Falmouth, MA 02536

Located in Falmouth Airpark, here's a 4BR, 3.5BA with its very own hangar featuring "direct access to the end of the runway and... enough room for cars, a small boat, motorcycles and an airplane." Asking price is $836,000.

4. Playbill: New Seabury

Copy Link
197 Fells Pond Road
Mashpee, MA 02649

The house itself is a typical 1972 Contemporary, but "multiple living areas and decks once hosted elegant parties thrown by the previous owner a renown Broadway producer." Perhaps that's who left the piano behind? Regardless, the New Seabury spread is yours for $375,000.

5. Freud +/- Croquet

Copy Link
86 Putnam Avenue
Cotuit, MA 02635

When we first wrote about this dreamy Colonial back in October, the listing was claiming a Sigmund Freud connection, but no longer. Per the current brokerbabble, "it is recorded that the first game of croquet in America was played on this lawn." Either way, some sort of bragging rights are yours for $839,000.

6. Camp Retreat
