Description

Description

Who says you can't ''Make a silk purse out of a Sow's Ear?''

Sitting prominently on ''Old King's Highway'' (AKA Rt. 6A), the historic 275 year old Amos Otis house has been meticulously restored and graciously enlarged. What was a severely neglected and overgrown property is now one of the most admired homes along the north side of ''Old Cape Cod'' and in 2017 was a featured article in New England Home magazine.

Located directly in the middle of Cape Cod, within the quintessential New England Village of Barnstable, Sow's Ears offers the best Cape Cod. The landmark property is situated overlooking the pastoral tranquility of the Cape Cod Organic Farm, with picturesque Barnstable Harbor and stunning beaches, both walk-able distances from the house. Every attention was made in creating a home of unsurpassed detail, both inside and out. The finished result is a spectacular property of tasteful historic character combined with sophisticated casual modernism.

    Summer Fun Family Reunion!

    The property was splendid for our family gathering, heaps of airy space, very well-appointed and charming touches all around! The pool is spectacular with the garden and its summer bounty being a close second. The hosts were very welcoming and quick to respond at all times to our questions. Well worth a repeat visit :)

    Owner Response:

    Thank you for the kind words!! We were so happy to host you and your family at our Cape Cod home last summer.
    We put a lot effort in designing our home to be open, inviting, and spacious enough to accommodate large groups while providing ample space for personal privacy. Thrilled that you took full advantage of all SOW'S EAR has to offer.
    Being new to this platform, we are most appreciative to hear our guests enjoyed our home as much as we do!
    We look forward to having you back anytime.
    Sincerely
    Rob

    Combining my New England upbringing, appreciation for colonial architecture, and 25+ year career in the design field, the completion of Sow's Ear is the realization of a life-long dream.
    This was a fully "hands-on" project. From initially discovering the severely neglected property, to the finish touches on the landscape & pool design, every detail was carefully considered and executed. Paramount in my design vision has always been in the creation of spaces where life is lived; family and friends gather, and memories are made.

    What is special about this property?
    Located directly in the middle of Cape Cod, within the quintessential New England Village of Barnstable, Sow's Ear offers the best Cape Cod. The landmark property is situated overlooking the pastoral tranquility of the Cape Cod Organic farm, with picturesque Barnstable harbor and stunning beaches both walk- able distances from the house.
