On The Market: 97 Governor Prence, Brewster

This newly-renovated home has a gracious interior that maximizes views of Cobbs Pond, with the beach at Cape Cod Bay just a few houses away.

When it comes to the Cape, ocean access is a must-have, but this Brewster property offers a saltwater oasis as well. With water views of Cobbs Pond, this home has easy water access without the concerns of erosion that can accompany salt-water proximity. No need to worry, however, gated access to Cape Cod Bay is just a few houses away.

Gut renovated in 2006, this home was doubled in size. When the home was raised, the owners also added wooden beams, giving the home a rich, warm feeling throughout with a nice splash of vibrant coloring. “It’s a Cape house but with a bit of an arts-and-crafts feel to it,” says agent Peg LoPresto.

This home is comfortable with a front-to-back living room, beautiful master suite on the first floor, shining sunroom, and an extra family room with cathedral ceilings, among other gracious living spaces. LoPresto explains that this spacious residence “sleeps a crowd,” with spaces for everyone to enjoy. With a separate one-bedroom apartment on the walkout lower level, as well as five beds in the main home, there is space for family and guests.

With a large lawn in back that leads to a licensed dock at the edge of the pond, and two south-facing decks, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. Situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, this home can be peacefully enjoyed.
