Built in 1910, this Classic Cape homestead is situated on a hill one block from West Beach, the Hyannisport Club, and the News Shop. Two sides of the house face the water and have wrap-around porches as well as a sun room to maximize ocean breezes and views of the sunrise and sunset. These open and covered porches have plenty of seating to relax with friends and a glass of wine or enjoy an outdoor dinner. Relax on the hammock-- perfect spot to read, nap, or enjoy the ocean breezes.
The house is large with bright, natural light. The living room has a beautiful, ceiling- high, field stone fireplace and comfortably seats 16. The dining room, situated at the far end of the living room, has exquisite diamond-paned windows and leads to a sun-porch with seating for six. The kitchen is large and seats ten. An airy den and large deck are situated off the kitchen.
The configuration of the six bedrooms provides maximum occupancy and privacy. Two bedrooms and a bath form the 'Captain's Quarters', a private suite with one queen and two twins. Three bedrooms have two twins each, and one bedroom has a single twin. All four have ocean views. A bedroom with adjacent bath can be used as a master suite.
