In the spirit of “Turkey Day” we thought it only fitting to take you to Plymouth, Massachusetts – home of Plymouth Rock, the historical landmark signifying where the Mayflower Pilgrims disembarked to begin their settlement on a new continent. Although visitors of the rock often describe it as “underwhelming,” the town itself is not. Plymouth is a quintessential New England destination, nestled conveniently between Boston and Cape Cod. This week we found two fabulous Plymouth properties, each with incredible locations right on the water, but with price points that are miles apart. Which would you choose, the Cape Cod Bay Splurge or the White Horse Beach Steal?
Splurge: Cape Cod Bay Estate On 9.7 Acres With Private Beach For $1.85M
Situated on 9.7 pristine acres along Cape Cod Bay rests this impressive, six-bedroom, six-full-and-one-half-bathroom Colonial with its own private beach!
The listing description reads, “Why fight bridge traffic when you could be sitting back on your deck enjoying the views of Cape Cod Bay!” And we have to agree. One look at this relaxing estate, highlighted by green meadows, manicured gardens, panoramic views is a fantastic Plymouth retreat!
Aside from your own private beach for swimming, it comes with a sparkling heated pool, and ample areas to entertain.
A gracious living room affords a towering stone fireplace, met by a nearby gourmet kitchen with everything you need to host a pilgrim-worthy feast!
We love the gazebo with screened porch for summer entertaining, and the over 1,000-square-foot deck.
A main-floor bedroom and bathroom allows for ease of use, and the upper bedrooms, each with a private bath, are ideal for guests. The entire third floor plays host to the expansive master suite with sitting area, deck, wet bar and private bath.
Just imagine the memories you could make in this 4,986-square-foot Colonial!
Kathleen S. Byrne with Robert Paul Properties, Inc. has listed 296 Center Hill Road, Plymouth, Massachusetts, for $1.85 million.
Steal: Waterfront House On White Horse Beach For $753K
For less than our splurge, you could be living right on the water in an idyllic beach house!
The four-bedroom, two-full-bathroom home boasts an oceanfront location on White Horse Beach, with dreamy decks for lounging and ample space to entertain. Technically it is a two-family residence that could be used as a single family home.
In addition to its picture-perfect beach location, it has undergone a slew of recent updates, including new windows, deck, trim, water heater, electric storm shutters, and flooring.
In the downstairs unit, you’ll enjoy a newly updated kitchen featuring designer finishes. Outfitted with quartz countertops, new cabinets, tile floors, and stainless appliances it makes for one lovely place to cook and serve. The best part? You can kick off your shoes and step off the first or second floor deck onto a beautiful sandy beach!
As an added bonus, many of the furnishings can be included in the sale. There is note of weekly rental history and the seller is offering an incentive. If you have been on the hunt for a New England family home or place to retire, this location and price can’t be beat.
Host clambakes on the beach and start a new Thanksgiving tradition. One thing is for sure, this beachfront Plymouth home aims to please!
