This Cape dates back to the 1690’s so that puts it in the range of being one of the oldest surviving homes in the United States. I have a soft spot for these elderly Capes and love doing posts on them – like this colorful Cape, and this Christmas Cape.

This particular beauty is located in Sandwich Village, Massachusetts and it is currently for sale.

The listing says that despite its advanced age, the home has been fully restored inside and out, while still retaining that antique charm.

The “keeping room” is now used as a dining room:

From the listing:

This home has been proudly owned by four families in the past few hundred years…this could be the piece of history you been waiting for.

Even though the house has been gutted, it is reassuring to see how the owners have decorated with primitive/colonial style furniture to convey that early Americana feel…

Renovations and additions over the decades have bumped this once humble home up to 2,729 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 3 fully renovated bathrooms and a brand new kitchen.

Adorable!

Outside, the yard boasts handmade stone walls, a koi pond, and several garden areas:

The old-world style landscaping reminds me of another home I recently covered – the Hillmann House in New Jersey.
