1. West Falmouth

Copy Link
774 West Falmouth Highway
Falmouth, MA 02540

Kicking off with "Your own Green Acres," at least according to the brokerbabble. Regardless of what you call it, the 1886 Greek Revival is rather lovely. The renovated 4BR, 2BA sits on .85 landscaped acres with stone walls and a barn with guest quarters. Yours for $850,000.

2. Sandwich

1 Mossy Bottom Lane
Sandwich, MA 02563

Here's a builder's own 3BR, 5BA on adorably named Mossy Bottom Lane. The 4,128-square-footer was built in 2004 and has an open kitchen and family room, formal dining room, and finished lower level. Outside, the .43 acre lot features a rather lovely looking in-ground pool and custom stone work. Yours for $849,000.

3. West Barnstable

17 Holway Drive
West Barnstable, MA 02668

Located in Point Hill, this 4BD, 3BA is within walking distance to/from Sandy Neck Beach and offers a first floor master, screened-in porch, wrap around deck, a gas fireplace, built-ins galore and the expected "top of the line appliances, granite counters" in the kitchen. Asking price for the .8 acre property is $845,000.

4. Hyannis Port

15 Marchant's Mill Road
Hyannis, MA 02601

5. Chatham

65 Youngs Road
Chatham, MA 02633

For better or worse, this 3BD, 3.5BA has a "contemporary flair." The 2,100-square-footer sits on .28 acres and has seasonal views of Bucks Creek and "a distant view of Nantucket Sound from the second level." Asking price is $849,000.

6. Orleans

40 Fox Ridge Drive
Orleans, MA 02653

First listed in July for $869,000, this Barley Neck area 4BR, 2.5BA was given a September slice down to $849,000. The .62 acre property features a 2,577-sq.-ft. residence, "a shimmering swimming pool," and "heated cabana/studio/office which overlooks the pool."

7. Wellfleet

348 Main Street
Wellfleet, MA 02667

Apparently, this circa 1870 4BR, 2.5BA with an $843,000 price tag was renovated in 2005 and is now a "lovingly restored village gem." Alas, without interior listing photos, we'll just have to take their word that the "like-new building is totally modernized yet retains its original antique character."

8. Truro

16 Bay view Road
North Truro, MA 02652

Finally, to a North Truro "sleeper" with water views and private deeded beach access. The 1,680-sq.-ft. 4BR, 2BA sits "on one of the most beautiful parts of the Outer Cape" and is asking $849,000.
