This iconic Cotuit home has graced Main Street in the village center since 1846. First owned by sea captain James Coleman, it later passed to members of the Coolidge, Lowell, and Shreve families. The one-acre lot behind the house contains a large field, a wood, an old stone wall, and a border of gorgeous century-old towering trees.The current family did a complete renovation in 1994 with subsequent updates, creating a light-filled, modern home while retaining its significant historic character. The house comes to you partially and elegantly furnished by a well-known Boston designer. Among the special features are the dining room walls, hand painted by a New York muralist with scenes of Old Cotuit, complete with the old Pines Hotel and the original Cotuit Oyster Company.On the firs there is a large kitchen/family room with skylights, a dining table, a sitting area with fireplace, and French doors leading to the lovely 30-foot porch. This cook's paradise has a large Viking stove, all new appliances, a center island, and yards of counter space. The dining room also has a fireplace and French doors to the porch, and the very large living room has a fireplace and French doors to the outdoor patio. A cozy den with built-in bookshelves and TV cabinet shares the double-sided fireplace with the kitchen. On the second floor, the master bedroom has a sitting area with fireplace and an ensuite bathroom with double sinks, a Jacuzzi and a steam shower. A queen bedroom has a glassed-in fireplace and shares the hall bathroom with a larger bedroom that boasts an original Franklin stove. On the third floor are a large sunroom bedroom with sitting area, a large hall bathroom, a bedroom with an ensuite bath and separate sitting room, and a small single bedroom. Bleached white pine floors throughout bring special brightness and charm. A piece of Cotuit history lovingly brought to life, this home is offered partially furnished.
