Historic properties are special—exuding charm and character that appeal to many buyers—and this two-level Cape Cod home is no exception. Overlooking Broad Creek from a southward point of land and boasting a high elevation, 650 feet of shoreline, spectacular water views, and a private deep-water pier, the home is the perfect waterfront retreat, offering a peaceful lifestyle. The property, which was listed on February 24, 2016, closed on May 22, 2017. “There are several interesting features about this property, but I think the best is the lot itself,” says Jane McCarthy of Benson & Mangold Real Estate, the buyer’s agent for the property. “Even though it is 1.63 acres, it feels so much larger because it is a point of land. The views are wonderful, and the house sits high on the land.”  

The home, which was updated and expanded in 1996, features a gourmet kitchen with custom cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and ceramic tile flooring. With hardwood floors, a cozy wood-burning fireplace, and beautiful wood ceiling beams, the living room is absolutely charming. And the delightful sunroom, which features walls of windows, a stylish ceiling fan, brick flooring, and access to the in-ground waterside pool and hot tub, is the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the views. The property also includes a finished room over the garage and a small boat shed. Plus, the gardens are absolutely lovely. 

“The home has a wonderful cottage feel with hardwood floors throughout and water views from every room,” says McCarthy. “It also has great spaces that can be used as guest rooms or entertaining spaces. The current owners are working on ‘opening up’ the house to create a more open floor plan. It was rewarding for me to sell it to them because I know how much they will love this waterfront home.”
