YARMOUTH – Here is a classic Cape that is also a classic home for a family. Expanded in recent years with the addition of a first-floor master suite, and a wonderfully bright sunroom/great room that overlooks rolling back lawn and meadow, the nine-room home provides four bedrooms and 3.5 baths over its 2,178 square feet. (That’s not counting the semi-finished family/recreation room in the basement.)

The long, radiant-heated great room is the key to the main level’s openness and natural flow. One double doorway opens from the dining nook to the kitchen, whose quartz surfaces include an island; another double doorway connect the sitting area to the living room. Both the living room and the kitchen have pretty, newer wood stoves on brick hearths.

The kitchen also opens to the dining room. Occupying the east wing, the master suite features a large bedroom, a deep walk-in with built-ins, and an updated bath with both jetted tub and oversized shower enclosure.

Upstairs, where floors are Southern pine, there is a second bedroom suite, complete with full bath and walk-in. Good-sized second and third bedrooms are served by their own full bath, also updated.

Walkup loft storage above the garage is augmented by an attached shed with space for lots of firewood and garden equipment.

The town is renowned for the excellence of its school system. And as the home’s location is convenient to village amenities and commuter access, the setting is sweetly private. Mature trees and a meadow ring the expansive lawns in the center of the 5.54-acre lot. An equestrian may well see potential here.
