The Town of Barnstable, Massachusetts, is the equivalent of a warm blanket — a cozy place to land after a long day at the beach. And according to the folks at SmartAsset, the Cape Cod destination ranks among the top places to buy a second home in 2019. In March of this year, 51.63 percent of mortgages in Barnstable were for secondary residences, which prompted us to do some digging. What we found is nearly every listing, whether it is in Barnstable or not, is listed as if it is in Barnstable.
So without further ado here are a few great offerings in the Barnstable area, all under $9 million.
The All-American Compound
If you want to go big, why not buy a compound? This one in sought-after Oyster Harbors comes complete with enclosed porches, gorgeous patios, sprawling landscape, and a majestic pool. There is even a tennis court and private deep-water dock, all tucked away at the end of a long circular drive. And with five-bedrooms, six-full-and-one-half-bathrooms, and a two-bedroom guest residence, it’s a place that was built to host a crowd. As the listing copy reminds us, “The address is coveted. The legacy is yours forever.”

The Stately Beach Retreat
History and period elegance reign supreme in this oceanfront escape. Built in 1930, it has been tastefully upgraded, while also preserving the estate’s historic elegance. Expansive views of the Nantucket sound, a private path to the sandy beach, plus a total of 13 rooms for entertaining make this one a keeper. Write its next chapter and share it with your family for generations to come.

The Sea View Stunner
Okay, so this Cape Cod beauty isn’t technically a sea-view but it’s close enough. The four-bedroom, six-full-and-one-half-bathroom retreat is sited on 2.44-pristine-acres, offering incredible grounds for private outdoor entertaining, and richly appointed interiors to make you feel right at home. Technically it is in nearby Osterville but that shouldn’t matter. It’s close to the beach and just a short drive to the world-famous Hyannis Port, a known vacation spot of the Kennedys.
