When I saw the outside of this shingled Gambrel-style cottage for sale in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, I thought it looked charming. What I didn’t expect was how bright and colorful it is inside. The listing agent says it was the work of a local artist and color expert, and it shows.
It’s on the market for $2.15 million, so take a look!
The house was built in 1880, but you wouldn’t know it by the with tangerine walls in the living room.
A reader named Wesley told me about this house, saying, “I have always been a huge fan of this property. It’s a funky New England style home located in historic Hyannis Port where the well-known and lesser-known mingle barefoot on the beach and is illustrative of the casual, carefree nature of this seaside community.”
My daughter Lily says this pink dining room is her favorite (no surprise there!).
There are 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in this house, which has a little more than 2,000 square feet.
The bedrooms aren’t afraid of a little color, either:
This looks like a kind of craft table set up for the kids:
The kitchen is kind of small and basic, but the striped floor and red walls keep things interesting:
There’s a “renovated guest barn” on the property, too:
What I’d give to have a space like this behind my house to work in! What would you use it for?
According to the listing:
Classic Gambrel situated in heart of the prestigious Hyannis Port Civic Association. Stroll from its front porch, and your eyes are drawn toward the ocean beach just down the road. This estate is five houses from everywhere. The HP Yacht Club and Pier, West Beach Club, HP Golf Club, quaint Post Office and News Shop, offer a destination for those wishing to experience true Cape Cod.
Could you handle that much color? I love seeing something bold and different, even if I’d have a hard time living with it in my own home. For more photos and information about the cottage, visit Robert Paul Properties.
