Cape style homes with white shingles and nautical accents are expected on the ocean front street of Waterside Avenue in Falmouth. However, unexpectedly situated in this coastal neighborhood is the exquisite and unique home found at 68 Waterside Avenue. A brick red exterior with numerous archways and porthole windows are just some of the architecturally uncommon features found in this 1895 masterpiece.
A Historical Home with Expansive Ocean Views
Built in the mid-1890’s to serve as a carriage house to the original Waterside Estate, 68 Waterside Avenue was renovated and has acted as a summer residence for nearly two decades. Perfect for hosting a large gathering of family and friends, the home is over 6,500 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Multiple living and sitting rooms allow for everyone to have their own space to spread out and relax, and with ocean views from almost every room, it is hard to choose just one favorite spot! Additionally, the large deck allows for ample sunbathing and barbecuing, with unobstructed views at every angle. The property sits on 34000 square feet in Belvidere Plains with deeded access via a path leading to Shore Road allowing easy access to the beach.
Not only is the home itself ideally located on the water, but it is also a short proximity away from Falmouth Harbor and downtown Falmouth. Known for its delectable cuisine and boutique shopping, Falmouth Main Street is a popular destination for visitors and locals all year long. Grab margaritas and a grilled shrimp tostada at Anejo Mexican Bistro & Tequila Bar, then cross the street to Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium for homemade ice cream. Owning the carriage house by the sea will allow for endless summers of fun, food, and family.
What We Love: “I love it all – the warmth of the original Cyprus flooring with the contrast of the original brick walls, the beauty of the old stable still intact with the use of original barn doors and stanchions; a house full of character artfully transformed into a home with the most incredible ocean views.” -Listing Agent, Barbara Hussey
