This 2,400-square-foot Victorian is on a quarter-acre lot facing seaward toward Onset Bay, a lovely little cove of Buzzards Bay. Besides the main house, with its rocking-chair porch, two balconies and modern kitchen with breakfast nook, it has a separate carriage house with two two-bedroom apartments.
The summer is prime time for this vacation home, with its private beach and easy 10-minute walk to town shops. It's on the mainland side of the Cape Cod Canal, so those long drives up the Cape in Friday night traffic won't trouble residents of this house.
The beach and the sea are the big recreational attractions. Shore communities all over the state swell with refugees from Boston, New York and other cities.
