Located in the heart of ‘Sconset village, next door to the beloved Chanticleer Restaurant and directly across the street from the ‘Sconset Casino and Tennis Club, “Seldom Inn” features a large, hedge-lined yard and boasts both history and character. The front portion of the house dates to the 1800s and was home to the first female minister in Massachusetts, Phebe Ann Coffin. The charming three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath cottage was originally sited along Bank Street and was moved in the early 1900s to the current oversized lot upon which it presently sits. In the 2000s, numerous updates were completed, including modernized bathrooms and a rear addition. Today, this charming property, with its ideal setting near the ‘Sconset Market, area restaurants and beaches, is ready for its next steward. It is a truly special property ready to be re-envisioned.
