EAST FALMOUTH — When a skilled builder creates his own home, the next owner is in for a real treat. That's the backstory of this amazing contemporary Cape-style house on a 2.2-acre lot on Hayway Road.
"There are a lot of extras," said listing agent Annie Hart Cool of Sotheby’s International Realty. The home is priced at $849,000 and features nearly 3,000 square feet of living space.
The show starts when you open the front door into the beautiful open design on the first floor. Guests will be wowed by the fabulous work-of-art staircase rising to the second floor of the home. "It is such a regal entrance," Cool said.
The open first floor is perfect for entertaining, with a state-of-the-art kitchen, including granite countertops, flowing into a dining area and sunken living room. The fun certainly continues outside, with a deck and a pagoda-style three-season living space. There's also a Tiki bar that will tickle "Gilligan's Island" fans as well as a fire pit area to crank up a s'mores party.
Entertainment fun continues on the lower level of the home. Cool called the space "Manland." It's no cave! It features a bar and a bathroom and plenty of room to watch the big game.
Eventually, bedtime rolls around, and the home features a second floor primary bedroom with an en suite bathroom. You may want to fire up the whirlpool tub. There's also a Juliet balcony that overlooks the grounds.
"You feel like you're in a treehouse," Cool said. Two guest bedrooms and a guest bathroom are also located on the second floor.
The lot features mature plantings and trails, and is big enough for a hobby farm or maybe even a pony. "The privacy is insane," joked Cool, who added that all systems have been upgraded recently and the home is in pristine, move-in condition.
Nearby attractions include Mashpee Commons, many golf courses and plenty of beach options. The Cape Cod Fairgrounds are a short drive away and the home is near the Francis A. Crane Wildlife Management Area and Mass Audubon's Ashumet Holly Wildlife Sanctuary.
