Dennis, MA —
The Perfect Cape Cod Village Center

Intricate traces of our nation’s history can be found all over the village of Dennis. Even the street names, Whig St., Pilgrim Road, Nobscusset Road, to name a few, tell a story. Around every bend there seems to be some relic, whether it’s the 300-year-old Josiah Dennis Manse, home of the town’s namesake, or the 300 million year old Hokum Rock named after the Native Americans who lived here.

42 Scarsdale Rd, Dennis, MA

''I'd rather build a real house, one to stay'' - Gladys Taber's April Song Built with a soul in 1977 and thoughtfully expanded in 1992 by architect Legere Cuyler, this home is the profile of what a Cape house was meant to be. Comfortable but not fussy, sensible and quirky, it begs its occupants to put their feet up and contemplate their weekend plans. The primary suite includes a library nook with a window seat plus its own porch on the wooded edge of the lot, so its occupant has a chance make the journey from outdoor shower back to the bedroom undetected. On the topic of porches, off the dining area through French doors is a screen room which, in season, grows the living area by over 200 square feet. The whole house is tucked in by forest which gives it a comfortable privacy. For times when solitude is called for, the detached office shed with full electric service is your solution. A trip into the village or to a Cape Cod Bay beach are all less than a one mile journey.

21 Yelverton Ln, Yarmouth (West Yarmouth), MA

On the way to Seagull Beach are all these great little neighborhoods like the one that 21 Yelverton is in. And like many of its neighbors, the house is a tidy ranch with a sensible yard. Unlike others it has a garage and a sunroom which make for larger living. With a proven rental history, it would make a grand income property. But it would also just as well serve the down sizer or first time home buyer.
