They just ranked Barnstable in the top 5 for Best Places to Live when it comes to Happiness and Well Being and this 1.78 acre home embodies that emotion. Perched on a wooded hillside overlooking scenic Barnstable Harbor, Sandy Neck, and Cape Cod bay, this 1930s 2bed/2bath retreat fondly called the Offshoot was originally built by Harvard Professor and Shakespeare Scholar George Lyman Kittredge as a summer getaway. The house was expanded and modernized in the early 1990's. More recent updates include new roof, windows and deck supports along with special features including hardwood floors, cathedral living room with fireplace, propane gas for cooking and a master suite with private full bath. Continue to use this tranquil home seasonally or rebuild it to a year round oasis. Happiness starts at the Offshoot. Did we mention the view?
