Real estate agents in Harwich toured eight properties for sale this week. Here is your inside track to five of them.
Let's start with an affordable and convenient condo at 120 Route 28 for $239,000.
The back deck actually fronts Route 28. Cross the street, traverse the parking lot and that's Saquatucket Harbor where you can hop on the ferry to Nantucket. Spend the day on the island and come home and crash in your own place. You can't get any closer to a ferry than that. This residence has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Next is 35 Wales Road near Joseph's and Buck's Ponds off Queen Anne Road. This three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home boasts a cathedral ceiling in warm terracotta red. 35 Wales Road is offered at $425 thousand.
The kitchen is spacious and filled with light.
Black appliances and a warm cherry floor compliment the gleaming cabinetry. Don't you like the glass cabinets above the cook top? I love how they add storage capacity but they still let the light in.
Now let's drive around the corner to 9 Boblink Lane. I think you'll like this one.
Look at this view. That's Bucks Pond straight away with beach rights in the cozy Great Sand Lakes Association. This three bedroom, two bath home is available now for $438,900. And it's surprisingly spacious inside.
This is one of the bedrooms. I always love a room with windows on two walls. And the pretty bay window at left is a nice touch.
We cross into the "south of Route 28" area so in demand by vacationers. Let's look at 8 Spindrift Way.
Doesn't this remind you of your Cape Cod childhood summers? It could use some work but wow, what a location near Red River Beach. You're really not far from the center of Harwich Port either.
Isn't that window just great? You can admire your low-maintenance pine needle front yard that is classic Cape Cod.
OK, now I have something really special to show you. Let's go inside a lakefront home with guest house on Long Pond, Cape Cod's largest freshwater lake.
This one is so special it's hard to know where to start. But let's begin in the vaulted family room with stone fireplace. In this chilly month of March I would be firing that thing up every day.
But I know you want to get outdoors, so let's look outside...at this killer access to private frontage on Long Pond. Go ahead, take it in. Can't you see yourself getting a running start from the front door to jump in when the thermometer turns 80? This lovely property includes a dock suitable for a sea plane. That's right, I said sea plane. It is actually permitted for that use. Know anyone who flies? Invite them to drop right in.
But that's not all. Directly behind the home is a newly constructed guest house every bit as fine as the main house. In fact, I could live in this charmer.
It's hard to pinpoint what's best about this kitchen in the guest house because it's all so great, but I think it might be the tongue and groove knotty pine ceiling. Don't you think it adds luster and warmth? It's a pleasant surprise. Personally I'm a nut for knotty pine because it defines Cape Cod, however it hasn't been used much in the last 30 years. Can you say "comeback"?
Smash open the piggy bank. 81 Sequattom Road with a combined six bedrooms and four bathrooms is offered at $1.2 million.
Let me know if you want to tour any of these delightful Cape Cod properties for yourself and I'll get you in.
