Barnstable Real Estate
Barnstable is a coastal town located about halfway along the “biceps” of the Cape Cod “arm” bordered by Cape Cod Bay on the north, Nantucket Sound on the south and Sandwich and Mashpee to the west. Barnstable is the largest community on Cape Cod, encompassing seven different villages as well as the dunes of Sandy Neck Beach. The majority of its residents live along the south border, many on waterfront properties along the beaches of Centerville or around Hyannis Port.
The villages of Barnstable feature a Main Street where you can find traditional colonials, capes, and ranch-style homes and central business districts. In addition to its history as the second home of many of the Kennedy family members, Barnstable is also home to the Cape’s largest regional airport as well as the site of many of the ferry departures to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
