Hot Property: Former tavern now choice home in West Barnstable

Step into Cape history with Meadow House, a Federal period residence steeped in charm minutes from Sandy Neck beach, protected marshlands, and Mill Pond.

With a fascinating past as a tavern and general store, the versatile property at 761 Main Street in West Barnstable now serves as both a private residence and a law office under home occupation.

Built in 1770 by David Kelley — who never even got to move in — the structure became the Meadow House tavern in 1848 before finding a new life as a general store once the railroad came to town.

True to its pre-Revolutionary roots, Meadow House boasts a classic hip roof design and twin chimneys. Preserving its historic allure, the property features remarkable period woodworking, wide pine flooring, and Federal-style trim around the doors and windows, while modern updates ensure comfort, including gas fireplaces and a sunroom.

The first floor offers two spacious rooms for living and entertaining. Upstairs, the flexible layout caters to diverse needs with two bedrooms plus a primary with a walk-in closet and full bathroom with double vanities and a soaking tub.

Spanning 4.35 acres, the property offers privacy and 0.83 acres of upland, with the possibility of adding a detached barn or garage. Outside, an inviting brick patio under a majestic sugar maple invites tranquility in the midst of a natural bird sanctuary and lush gardens ripe with roses, day lilies, and raspberries.

The property is on the market for $895,000. The sale is represented by Cindy Lee Caldwell of Sotheby’s International Realty – Cape Cod – Falmouth Brokerage, 508-737-5670.
