Step back to a simpler time in this cozy Barnstable Village antique (circa 1745) with a 20′ x 40′ barn located along one of the most beautiful stretches of the Old King’s Highway, the largest historic district in the United States. Known as the Freeman Ellis house, this 2 bedroom home with a loft features living spaces and bedrooms with wide pine floors, including the living room with high ceilings, dining room with rustic paneling, the primary bedroom on the first floor, second floor bedroom and a loft. The kitchen window overlooks magical gardens, and a first floor laundry room provides extra storage. You can plant your tomatoes in the raised bed garden. Moved to this site at the corner of Bayberry Lane more than a century ago, the structure began as a harness shop. Follow Indian Trail down to the beach (.6 miles) for the sunset over Barnstable Harbor and the dunes of Sandy Neck, where you can request a mooring for your boat at the town landing. A sidewalk leads along Route 6A to the coffee shop, restaurants, market, post office and specialty shops in quaint Barnstable Village.
