Description: The virtues of this beautiful, early American home, circa 1834, begin with its location. It sits near the sea and just down the Cape Cod shore from Hyannis, one of the Cape's premiere recreational boating spots.

The grounds were designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, famed father of American landscape architecture who planned, Boston's Emerald Necklace chain of parks, New York Cit's Central and Prospect parks, and the Vanderbilts' Asheville, N.C., Biltmore estate, just to name a few.

The front entrance is a picturesque gate with a white spindle-turned fence leading to a brick walk flanked by a fine old tree. The lot is three-quarters of an acre and features many mature trees, flowering shrubs, arbors, annual gardens and lawns.

Inside is everything you'd expect from a New England clapboard antique. There are hardwood floors and doors, two fireplaces, crown moldings, window seats, built-in cabinets and bookcases, all beautifully maintained.
