About Marcus M. Sherman

Mr. Marcus M. Sherman has lived in this home since 1956 and in the summer he lives in the detached barn behind the house. He is a licenced sailboat captain and has been operating Catboat Rides Inc. since 1989. See more about him on Facebook.

Marcus M. Sherman purchased this house in 1988

Why Marcus M. Sherman chose Barnstable

Free beaches and sailing. Antique ambience. Built 1786. Quiet neighborhood but near downtown Main Street, Hyannis. Comfortable living. Pet friendly.

What makes this house unique

The Town of Barnstable Historical Commission* indicates that in 1786 Winslow Marston was the builder and the first resident of the old house at 70 Marston Avenue. This is unsupported by Census, Family or Probate records. Stephen Davis's argument that Joseph Bassett was the builder and first resident is supported by Census, early maps and family history. Both the Historic Commission and Davis agree that the house was built in 1786.

the property is a mess

  • 1 of 5

I had occasion to stay at this home while I was on the cape. My stay was very short due to the filthy conditions at the house. So much work needs to be done to make the house pleasant and livable. And, the worst thing is, you would think when you rent a house, there would be some dressers to put clothes in (we had planned to stay for a month) and they were full of clothes stuffed into them, women's underwear. It was gross. There were always clothes hanging on the line and the property owner came into the house whenever he wanted to (without notice or KNOCKING) to use the laundry and the fridge. It really was awful. We had to rent another property and lost all of our money. There was insulation hanging out of the celing, bugs, and general dirty conditions. Everything in the kitchen was sticky. The backyard is the size of a postage stamp and one of the stair cases is so steep that you have to pull yourself up with a rope. This guy knows he's ripping people off and doesn't care at all.

a true Cape Cod family experience!

  • 5 of 5

Captain Marcus was courteous and helpful. He recommended several must do things - all of which were on point. The history behind this family house is amazing; it is an older home but full of character! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return again.
