South Yarmouth house description
Built for the Akin Family in the 1870s, this stunning 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home sleeps 8 and offers all the modern conveniences of today coupled with the historic charm of the nineteenth century.
It is located in the Bass River section of South Yarmouth, known for having that quintessential Cape ‘look and feel’, which even has many homes listed on the National Register of Historic Homes.
Across the street from the home is the “Town Way to Water”, providing a small beach area to enjoy boating activity, or to launch your trailered boat on the river. Bass River provides access to Nantucket Sound, with Nantucket Sound beaches just a short drive away.
With 3,200 square feet of interior space situated on a 33,000 square foot property, the house offers plenty of common space both indoors and out--including a living room with fireplace, charming screened-in porch and a large eat-in kitchen with Viking appliances and granite counter tops. Off the kitchen area is a separate sitting room. There is also a covered deck off the kitchen that leads to a private patio, a deck off the spacious master bedroom as well as a large side yard.

Beautiful House, Great location!
Beautiful House, Great location!
Just got back from the most relaxing trip to the Cape! Some friends and I stayed here for a few days in early June (8 of us in total). Great location--we were able to check out other towns without spending too much time in the car. Plus there were restaurants, bars and stores within 5 minutes walking distance so we didn't have to drive when we didn't feel like it. From the second I walked in I could not get over this house. Absolutely gorgeous. I thought the pictures were fantastic but seeing it in person completely blew me away. Spotless, beautifully landscaped....absolutely nothing I can think of to complain about. Screened-in porch was perfect for gathering for coffee every morning. Would absolutely recommend staying at this house. I can't wait to go back myself!

Good Times in Bass River...

Beautifully appointed home (website photos are spot-on). Very spacious property; easily accommodated our group of 7 adults + 1 child. Great renovation – everything in home looks to be newly updated, while maintaining the classic Cape character. Massive side yard and well-designed outdoor space gave us a real sense of privacy. Location was perfect – 5-10 minute walk to several restaurants/bars, convenience store, etc., and 2 minute walk to the water’s edge at Bass River. Owner (Richard) was very attentive – he answered all our questions prior to arrival, provided us with local restaurant recommendations, and promptly returned the security deposit after our stay. Looking forward to another relaxing visit next year!
