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.

"Move closer to historic Route 6A to where 19th-century weather-wise sea captains built their homes"

The center of town is anchored by the 23-acre campus of the Cape Cod Center of the Arts, which includes the Cape Museum of Art, The Cape Cinema, and The Cape Playhouse. The Center is conveniently flanked by a delicious variety of options for dining, cocktails, and ice cream. (Pro tip: Go to Harvest Gallery and Wine Bar and try the Cape House martini!).

215 Main Street, Dennis (South Dennis), MA

Originally the home of multiple generations of Nickersons, 215 Main Street still sits across from one of the first churches built in Dennis. The house has been modernized over time but still retains so much charm, history, and details, including much of its original woodwork and king pine wide plank floors. Today it is graced with a big, beautiful kitchen and sprawling deck that takes great advantage of the views of Grand Cove. What may have once been a borning room is now a home office and a butler's pantry still serves as a marvelous storage nook. As trends have dictated, bedrooms have been expanded and amenities and storage added. This huge lot also includes a gazebo with its own private view of nature. Depending on which member of the family claims it, it could make a fantastic playroom or delightful summer office. Still more options await at the carriage house: garage, entertainment space, or...? Only the next steward of 215 Main Street knows.

33 Sturbridge Way, Brewster, MA

Kitchen: done. Bathrooms: done. Floors: done. Paint, HVAC, windows (all but 1), patio, landscaping, outdoor shower, driveway: DONE. Perfectly polished 33 Sturbridge has earned its spot at the top of the neighborhood. All that is missing is you! While the house is very much in Brewster, you can still get off the highway and out of traffic at (old) Exit 9 and make your way home in less than 10 minutes. At the same time, this home and the whole Red Top neighborhood is surrounded by acres of protected land which makes for great dog-walking and woodsy walks. In every way, this house is an easy YES.

749 S Main Street, Barnstable, MA

Before Cape Cod was a popular vacation destination, Helen J. Quinn, heiress to the Grand Union grocery chain, purchased almost 20 acres of land by the Centerville River. Several homes for her family and even a huge kennel for her dogs were built, but the most magnificent of all was Mrs. Quinn's personal estate, at 749 S Main St., later dubbed 'Sandcastle' for its sandy English stucco exterior. Brilliantly designed for hosting family or guests, the layout is timeless, with formal spaces on the entry side of the property and sunny, glassed-in rooms the length of the water side, offering 180 degree views of Craigville River and Nantucket Sound. With 9 bedrooms in the main house and a full, 1400-sq ft apartment above the separate 4 bay carriage house, there's space for everyone. A deep water dock connected to ''the best boathouse on the river,'' makes day trips to Nantucket possible, or store a launch to zip across the river for sunbathing on the white sands of Long Beach. Upstairs in the boat house is the ideal seaside party room. When you're not feeling like boating or beaching, spend the day around the custom gunite pool with a hot tub and garden waterfall.
