The original house on this Truro plot was built in 1770, but through the years, the timeless treasure has kept on reinventing itself. An addition was added and a guest house was built, while countless tasteful updates have transformed the place into a cozy, modern retreat.

There’s no shortage of living space in the almost 3,200-square-foot abode. Cathedral ceilings and oversized windows make the place feel even larger, letting sunlight in from all angles. The main house boasts three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms, plus an adorable library, a studio, and an industrial-style kitchen. There’s a screened-in porch and multiple decks for outdoor lounging, to boot. The guest house, meanwhile, is accessible via a covered walkway, and offers two bedrooms.
