128 Locust Street
Falmouth, MA 02540

Flipping out with the Captain Easton Butler House a "stones throw from Shining Sea Bike path, Downtown Falmouth, and Surf drive beach."

3. Mashpee

21 Bayview Road
Mashpee, MA 02649

Per the brokerbabble, "Mashpee home for sale, is not an adequate description for the Simplistic Distinctiveness this Masterpiece offers." Umm, yah. Anyway, this Seconsett Island three bedroom is this week's nominee for the PriceChopper Hall of Fame. The .28 acre property first hit the market in 2012 for $650,000 and after 15 slices (!!), is now yours for $500,000.

4. Cummaquid

6. Wellfleet

180 Briar Lane
Wellfleet, MA 02667
