              Year Purchased: 1950

              About the owner: Three siblings and spouses own this historic spot, having spent summer vacations here with our parents; it was owned by relatives before that.

              Why the Owner Chose Barnstable:
              We love it. It's roomy and cozy.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy varied restaurants, the Hyannis night life, live theatre, walks to the beach, sunsets on Cape Cod Bay, cocktails on Hyannis Harbor watching the boats come in. Sometimes we go whale watching or take a short drive to the ferry landing taking us to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard for the day or overnight. Charming churches of all denominations near by. Playground a short walk from the house.
