It's been a long time, I know. The holidays and a general lack of new listings have scuttled most of the tours for two months now. But today I have some inventory to show you. Let's begin with a super affordable ranch.
18 Mansion Street in West Harwich has 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The entry-level price will get your foot in the door in Cape Cod real estate.
Paint the whole thing white and watch the transformation.
A coat of paint and some updated furnishings will add wow factor to this coastal charmer close to the beach of Nantucket Sound.
18 Mansion Street is offered at $229,000.
Do you like to bicycle? Do you remember the Brady Bunch? Our next stop combines the two for a unique Cape Cod architectural opportunity.
Let's check out 2 Old Colony Road in Harwich.
Built in 1976, this expanded ranch sits directly on the Cape Cod Rail Trail Bike Path, within sight of the heart of Harwich Village Center.
Pets are no problem in this fenced in yard. Three seasons of greenery provide total privacy and you can watch it all from this spacious elevated deck.
For the discriminating buyer who seeks space, elegance and a place by the water's edge, let's tour 6 Shoal Hope Drive in West Harwich, shall we?
There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms in this expansive property on the Herring River in Harwich. And there is plenty of room to roam outdoors as well. The lot is .75 acre.
The home was built in 2002 and it's been meticulously cared for. The first floor master en suite is huge.
Can you imagine how pleasant it is to sit on this patio by the river in the summer? A dock comes with the property so bring your small boat. You get 11 feet of clearance under the bridge at Lower County Road at high tide.
6 Shoal Hope Road is offered at $1,490,000.
A little steep you say? OK, let's tour a 1988 home in authentic condition.
This home is deceiving. It's open floor plan presents spaciousness that is surprising when you walk in.
There's something about this kitchen that is super cool to me. It's a time capsule of its day. The formica "wood" counter tops, the oak-trimmed formica cabinetry and the 4 x 4 inch tile backsplash are all original and in great shape.
Only one owner has held this property for 25 years. I always think it's a bonus when a home retains it's architectural integrity. You have the option of doing a 2014 total upgrade, or you can keep the 1988 sensibility. Remember, mid-century homes across the country that were not updated in 60 years are commanding a fortune now.
The bathroom is authentic 1988 too.
You don't see too many like this anymore.
This is one of three bedrooms on the first floor but there is unfinished space on the second floor for two more.
That's Grassy Pond in the distance, a quiet little place to enjoy a kayak, canoe or paddleboard.
And do you think you could use that deck? Brother. Once the trees leaf out, you can do some serious relaxing back here.
26 Olde Homestead Way offers 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms and the rare opportunity to upgrade the septic system for as many as five bedrooms if you like. With 1.35 acres of land you have a lot of flexibility. It is on the market for $424,000.
Let me know if you would like to tour any via cellphone or in person and I'll get you in.
