Since the late nineteenth century, Cape Cod has been a vacation spot for dignitaries. Dating all the way back to President Ulysses S. Grant in 1874, senators and presidents alike have summered in magnificent homes on this notable stretch of Massachusetts shoreline. Famous faces like the Kennedys were even known for building their own compounds so they could summer in style.

Set on six acres of land, listing agent Jack Cotton Jr. of Sotheby’s International Realty – Cape Cod Brokerage says this Centerville property is a nod to that history of compound living.

“Take all the charm, character and ambiance of a simpler time, set it on six acres of rolling lawns framed with massive beach trees with views of river, marsh and Nantucket Sound in the distance and you have 1311 Craigville Beach Road,” he says.

This 1929 restoration is just as spacious on the inside, with 13 rooms in total. This includes five bedrooms, a library/study, and a living room with a beamed ceiling. A main bedroom suite boasts its own wooden cathedral ceilings, walk-in closet, and balcony. On the first floor, there’s also a laundry room, sunroom, and mudroom, which offers space to spread out.

The home also offers a bounty of amenities. Five fireplaces ensure the home is warm throughout the winter, while central air conditioning offers a modern touch that you’ll be grateful for during sticky New England summers. In the wooden floored kitchen, you’ll find granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a pot filler faucet. Outside, there’s a patio with a fireplace for taking in views of the marsh as well as an in-ground pool for days when you can’t make it to the beach. What more could you ask for from a house on the Cape?
