Falmouth home for sale for $1.525 million on Sippewissett Road

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times – the most important part of real estate is “location, location, location”.

That couldn’t be more true on Old Cape Cod, where tourists flock in their thousands each summer, craving the sand dunes and salty air, and Cape Town’s status as a must-see.

This week’s house hunt embodies the “location, location, location” home selling mantra, but don’t think that’s all it brings to the table.

“The word I would use to describe the person who built this house is a perfectionist,” said John Burton, husband of the Burton husband-wife team of realtors representing the property. “He designed the house with every possible feature in mind.”

House hunting: 424 Sippewissett Road, Falmouth

424 Sippewissett Road in Falmouth, with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, sits back from the road on 0.67 acres and includes sought-after amenities like an outdoor shower, finished basement and even deeded access to Racing Beach.

His wife, Karen Burton, noted that the house sits atop a slight hill and walking up the wide, tree-lined driveway gives the house an impressive first glimpse.

“It’s just an elegant property,” she said.

Built in 2000, this home measures 3,224 square feet and features an open floor plan on the first floor, ensuring plenty of sunlight and space to spare in the main living area.

The kitchen, complete with island and pantry, includes high-end appliances from companies like Viking and Thermador.

To complete the first floor, two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The other two bedrooms, including the master bedroom, are on the second floor next to the second full bathroom.

John Burton said the master bedroom had a built-in bookcase with an extension ladder and a cedar walk-in closet. The two second floor bedrooms have their own private balconies.

“It’s a very solid and very well thought out house,” he says.

The finished basement adds additional space and, with a laundry room and a powder room, can be converted into an unlimited number of additional living spaces.

The icing on the cake for this home, however, is its location, location, location.

For nature lovers, 424 Sippewissett is just a five-minute drive from Knob and Beebe Woods and offers easy access to the Shining Sea Bikeway.

Just across the street and down the road, as Karen Burton points out, is Racing Beach, where future owners of this home can enjoy private deeded access to this beautiful location.

“A lot of people who come to Cape Town want that private access to the beach,” noted Karen Burton.

The house, although close to some of Falmouth’s most scenic sites, is still linked to the bustle of the town – it is only a five minute drive from the main streets of Woods Hole and Falmouth village.

“Everything is within 3 miles,” John Burton said.

Overall, what sets this property apart for the Burtons is the thought and care that went into not only its design, but also its maintenance.

“No expense was spared,” said John Burton. “The current owner has taken impeccable care of the property. It has been well loved and well cared for.
