87 Seventh Ave. in Barnstable listed for $1.1 million
The house located at 87 Seventh Ave. at Barnstable is the best of old Cape Cod, according to listing agent Sandra Milano.
“It’s a really special place,” she says.
Built in 1951, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is listed at $1.1 million. It’s been in the same family since 1977, Milano said, and they’ve taken great care in maintaining the home.
On the first floor, potential buyers will find a kitchen that opens to a spacious four-season room with access to the terrace, which then leads to a small library, with floor-to-ceiling shelving and a sliding ladder. Completing the first floor are two bedrooms, a laundry room and a full bathroom.
Upstairs is a large attic that leads to the master bedroom with a private bathroom and a beautiful view of the water.
The neighborhood is where this house really shines, according to Milano.
“Avenues are really special, and it’s a neighborhood where homes have been owned by families for generations,” she said. “These houses don’t change every five to seven years. People buy these houses and stay in them and make memories with their children and grandchildren, and then their grandchildren will do the same with their children.

As part of the Seaside Park community, future owners will also benefit from access to a nearby private beach, which will further add to the appeal of the neighborhood.
“What buyers are looking for is something they can move into,” Milano said. “If someone bought this house this weekend, they could move in by the 4th of July. And they wouldn’t have to go anywhere, because it’s in such a great location.
