This shingled waterfront spread might look like a secluded getaway from the listing photos, but the house sits directly across the street from the clubhouse at the Kittansett Club, one of New England's few waterfront courses. Despite the extra traffic and noise, this place still has many virtues, including 180-degree views of Buzzards Bay, a swimming pool, and broad decks for soaking up the summer sun. The main entertaining spaces are located on the second floor, to maximize views, while the bedrooms front on the deck and pool. Built in 1929, the house has been expanded since then, but still has some historic features, like stone stairs that lead down to the water's edge.
