What do Julia Roberts, a Broadway producer, wildlife galore, and Sigmund Freud all have in common? They’re all mentioned in Cape and Islands’ listings, of course. Behold, a special edition of Curbed Comparisons featuring 10 of the most unique listings from Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Kicking off at Kingman Yacht Center with a Dockominium lease for 99 years (began in 1989). “The slip will house a vessel up to 40 feet in length and 14 feet wide” and is yours for $135,000.
1 SHIPYARD LANE, POCASSET, MA 02559
Per the brokerbabble, “Julia Roberts stayed in this guest house.” The folks over at The Real Cape
were unimpressed, but if you are and you’ve got $2.7 million, ocean views and a celebrity connection await.
16 MASSACHUSETTS COURT, FALMOUTH, MA 02540
Located in Falmouth Airpark, here’s a 4BR, 3.5BA with its very own hangar featuring “direct access to the end of the runway and… enough room for cars, a small boat, motorcycles and an airplane.” Asking price is $836,000.
49 QUIMBY LANE, EAST FALMOUTH, MA 02536
PLAYBILL: NEW SEABURY
The house itself is a typical 1972 Contemporary, but “multiple living areas and decks once hosted elegant parties thrown by the previous owner a renown Broadway producer.” Perhaps that’s who left the piano behind? Regardless, the New Seabury spread is yours for $375,000.
197 FELLS POND ROAD, MASHPEE, MA 02649
FREUD +/- CROQUET
When we first wrote
about this dreamy Colonial back in October, the listing was claiming a Sigmund Freud connection, but no longer. Per the current brokerbabble, “it is recorded that the first game of croquet in America was played on this lawn.” Either way, some sort of bragging rights are yours for $839,000.
86 PUTNAM AVENUE, COTUIT, MA 02635
“Calling all artists, writers, hunters and those with the desire for solitude,” your 2.5 acre camp retreat on the Great Marsh awaits. It’s “wildlife galore” for $125,000.
311 NAVIGATION ROAD, WEST BARNSTABLE, MA 02668
Here’s a 334-square-foot year-round artist studio in the West End with parking. Asking price is $129,900.
19 MEADOW ROAD, PROVINCETOWN, MA 02657
Calling all wonkish legal historians, “This dramatic retreat has been the long-time summer sanctuary of the former U.S. Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach.” Yup, and it’s yours for $3.5 million.
THUMB POINT ROAD, VINEYARD HAVEN, MA 02568
“Hangar #H-7 is the second largest private hangar at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport. It currently garages a Cessna Citation Jet C-525.” The hangar, minus the jet, is asking $175,000.
MARTHA’S VINEYARD AIRPORT (MVY), 71 AIRPORT ROAD, WEST TISBURY, MA 02568
“This building is believed to have once been a candle factory” and is now a 3BD single-family on the market for $1,195,000.
1 HIGH STREET, NANTUCKET, MA 02554
