Antique homes are a dime a dozen on the Cape—and in greater New England—but this 198-year-old abode for sale in Truro is a special one. Built by a sea captain in 1820, the house was the first in town to receive both indoor plumbing and electricity, according to its listing. Its pressed Sandwich glass windows are original, as are its wide-pine floorboards.

Inside, the living room and dining room are both warmed by fireplaces, while French doors open to a brick patio topped with a pergola. The antique charm doesn’t stop there—each bedroom is clad in vintage floral wallpaper, to boot. As an added bonus, there’s an artist’s studio out back. It’s a fitting use for the outbuilding, considering illustrator and oil painter Gerrit Beneker lived at the property until his death in 1934.
