The Historic Bourne-Fisher House
Early settlers were attracted to Waquoit's good harbor, fishing and heavy timber. Steeped in history, the Bourne-Fisher House, circa 1760, is an unusually early and well preserved Cape Cod home on 3/4 acre of beautiful land. Built before the Revolutionary War by John Bourne and son, both seamen and one of Waquoit's first families, you can imagine the gentler days of horse drawn carriages driving by. Sold in 1862 to the Fisher family who resided there for over 100 years. In this historic home you will find three fireplaces, wide wood plank floors in many rooms, four bedrooms, three baths and many period features typical in a 1760 home. Enter the kitchen through an English country garden and be greeted by a huge fireplace now with a wood burning Franklin stove. If you love a home steeped in history, tradition and charm this property is for you.
