It's that time again, time for the weekly Broker's Tour of Harwich, your inside track to the newest homes to hit the market.
Step inside 90 Willow Street.
This home is a "Tale of Two Houses". The first floor is renovated and updated and the second floor, not so much.
The kitchen is open, and isn't the window seat an unexpected pleasure?
I'm a sucker for traditional Cape Cod charm, particularly in living rooms. Note the appropriately-scaled fire place with built-ins in knotty pine. As I've said before, it's time for knotty pine to make a comeback.
Now it's time to go inland to enjoy spacious 18 Blueberry Lane in Harwich.
With two bedrooms and two bathrooms this home is ideal as a starter, retirement or second home.
Paint the cabinets "of-the-moment" gray, and switch out the counter with stone and this kitchen would sing.
Regular readers of this column know my preference for rooms with two walls of windows and light, and this one has it. 18 Blueberry Lane is listed at $337,000.
OK now check out this gracious offering at 3 Mashpa Road in the lakes district of Harwich. With a private association beach and shared dock, you can spread out and enjoy beautiful Long Pond.
The open floor plan in this 2,714 square foot beauty is perfect for entertaining or just sitting down and enjoying the view all around you.
I can honestly tell you my meals would taste better prepared in a kitchen like this. Wow.
This exquisite space has two, yes, two decks off each side. It might be my favorite room in the house.
So many options and so little time. 3 Mashpa Rd. is listed at $725,000.
One last look at delightful 3 Mashpa Road.
Travel way back in time now to the year 1865 where time has gently touched this East Harwich antique on 241 Pleasant Bay Road.
Continuing the vintage door theme, check out this unique passage in an addition built in the 1940s.
Believe it or not, this is an exterior door.
Where can you even find hinges like that, right?
Four bedrooms on the second floor reflect time-honored sensitivities. Restore the antique authenticity of the place, or update completely. Heck, just move in, drop your stuff and explore the nearby golf courses and bay beaches. There is plenty of choice in this 2,648 grande dame, offered at $489,900.
Now put on your hard hat and come tour a stunner under construction within eyesight of Saquatucket Harbor and the Freedom Ferry to Nantucket. Let's enter 5 Meadow Mere Lane.
At just under 3,000 square feet, this home is serious about comfort and amenities.
Benjamen Moore "maritime white" covers the entire interior for a soft and uniform veil on the place.
All this can be yours for $1,290,000.
A little over budget you say? Come with me. I have a surprise for you.
Let's tour a condo where the living is easy and you are steps to town and the beach.
