Property description

This magnificent Estate is in pristine condition ... offering 1860s charm with 2015 expectations.

Spectacular property nestled amongst the rolling hills of Historic Route 6A (Old Kings Highway) less than a mile from quaint Barnstable Village.

Overlooking tranquil Hinckley Pond you will cherish the sunrise and sunset each day. This estate home is situated on a breathtaking 2+ acre parcel of manicured landscaping!

This Estate Home is located on the site of the Homestead of THOMAS HINKLEY, Governor of Plymouth Colony from 1681 to the Union with the Bay Colony in 1692.

The home features 3 private suites all with water views, highlighted by the master suite, complete with fireplace, walk-in closet, Jacuzzi tub and a large custom deck overlooking the 15+ acre Hinckley Pond. The 4th suite is cozy and warm with a fireplace of its own!

The home's open floor plan is filled with sunshine and is perfect for entertaining.

The “Great Room” is complete with a 50' flat screen entertainment center, wet bar and opens to a spectacular sun room with views of the open field and pond.

The Bistro kitchen is charming and the 3.5 bathrooms are sparkling.

Barnstable Village is located along Historic RTE 6A - the scenic road of Cape Cod known as Old Kings Highway.

The Village is a short stroll from the Homestead where you can shop, dine and antique. The beach is a short drive from the home and the center of the Cape - Hyannis is less than 5 minutes.

This Fabulous Estate Home Provides It All ...

Easy access to both land and sea, Breathtaking Views, Privacy and a Quiet Elegance!

Relax and enjoy Old Cape Cod!
