On The Market: 101 Lake Drive, Orleans
It’s amazing what an extra block can get you. Settled just a block away from the ocean at Cape Cod lies a gorgeous, wide open Cape house for 40 percent of the price it would cost on the water. “For the price point of $1.55 million, you’re really getting your own private resort,” says Wilkinson & Associates listing agent Peg LoPresto. “If this sitting on the water, it would be $3.5 million.”
Though this home does not have the classic Cape views, it does have water access for a boat and swimming, a sandy beach, and a 20-by-50 foot gunite swimming pool.
There is not only a lot of living spaces offered in the main house, but there is also a cottage with a kitchen, living, bed, bath and small laundry area. This charming house is perfect for inviting guests for summer weekends, or housing an in-law or older child. The high, vaulted ceilings lend to a very light and bright atmosphere with a Cape-y feel due to French doors and divided-pane windows. “It’s got the whole package, a resort package,” says LoPresto. “It’s got the whole package, a resort package,” says LoPresto.
This lot sits on a beautifully landscaped 1.4 acre plot just down the street from Pleasant Bay, and with access to Sandy Beach and Barrier Beach. “It’s really good, useful water” says LoPresto.
