Located in the Sagamore Beach section, this Colonial is an easy walk to the shore, a short trip to Route 3, and a quick hop (one mile) to a stop with buses headed for Boston. The home has an open floor plan with an eat-in kitchen. The fenced-in yard stays green thanks to the irrigation system, and the stone patio was upgraded in 2014.
