This almost 3 acre waterfront estate in the Cannon Hill area is steeped in history. The original cottage was built for the Nickerson family in 1700 and over the centuries the home has been expanded, most notably in the 1800's by Solomon Howes. The home has been updated while retaining its original charm and historical significance. There are breathtaking views of Pleasant Bay and Strong Island along with 500 feet of beach access directly in the front of the property. One could keep the home in its current form which is lovely by any standard; or, one could pursue a renovation keeping some of its historic structures and building a modern main home. Also, one could start completely anew with a demo delay which expires in 2020. Currently a six bedroom Title V septic and there is great potential here on one of the most cherished settings on the Cape. The sellers agent has contracted to have an existing conditions plan which will be available in mid-late October.
