Located a short walk from Barlow’s Landing Beach, this house has beckoned Cape Cod visitors since the mid-19th century and remains rich with the handiwork of its original builders. Flooring throughout is wide planked and knotty. Mantles surrounding the three working fireplaces were here in the 1850s. The kitchen, now a summery blue and white, has a window over the sink with view of the large backyard. Two steps up is an informal eating area, leading to the formal dining room.

A formal parlor with fireplace is in the front of the house. The spacious master is on the first floor. A long porch has been converted to a family room. Current owner calls the second floor the dormitory because each bedroom has multiple beds.

The landscaped backyard includes a koi pond guarded by a weeping Alaskan cedar and surrounded by a perennial flower garden. A barn is now a two-car garage with second floor expansion possibilities.

Listing broker Patti Sundelin of Today Real Estate in Sandwich is holding an open house Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
