Make a Sweet Escape to a Little Island Estate



    Make a sweet escape to this private Cape Cod compound in Osterville, Massachusetts, where a main residence and three guest homes situated on ten beautifully-landscaped acres will graciously accommodate all of your guests. Classically styled with peaked ceilings, hardwood floors, and built-in cabinetry throughout, the main house features five bedrooms, including a first-floor master suite with spa bathroom. A gardener's dream, the screened-in porch overlooks the surrounding property. Guest homes are equally formidable, with plenty of space for guests and cozy living rooms befit for after-beach get-togethers by the fireplace. Speaking of the beach: this property also features deeded rights to nearby North Bay waters.  View property.


    To The Rescue: Firehouse Part 2

    [OHV] To The Rescue: Firehouse Part 2
    We recently received a letter from the Country Hills Volunteer Fire Company in New Jersey. These firemen risk their lives to rescue people everyday, yet their rec room is literally a wreck! The dark and dumpy space features outdated dormitory-style furniture, so we treat these heroes to a much-needed makeover of their hangout. Watch Part 3.
