Orleans House, Estate of the Day
In the summer it can take an awfully long time to get to the outer reaches of Cape Cod, Massachusetts but it is worth it. Today's estate is a prime example of the reason that thousands flock to the Cape once the weather warms up. It is situated on a sheltered salt water inlet with access to Pleasant Bay. The four-bedroom home is on an acre of land and it has a new kitchen, a large living room with vaulted ceilings and a screened porch. One particularly charming detail is the boathouse at the water's edge with a loft area and game room. . It is listed at $4.275 million, pricey for a home with less than 4,000 square feet but you are paying for the location in one of the most picturesque New England towns. Although the middle range of the Cape Cod market has dropped considerably, prices of the high end home still seem to be reaching for the stars.
