There's no denying that Mattapoisett boasts some of the best water views on the SouthCoast.

Community is a big part of this quiet, seaside town. It's difficult to take a morning or afternoon walk along Water Street without getting a joyful "hello" from at least a few people, whether you know them or not.

While the whole village has the "feel" of the waterfront, there are only so many homes that can claim front-row status.  They're the kind of homes that get passed down from generation to generation. It's not entirely uncommon to see life in some of these waterfront homes only during Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Christmas week. These breathtaking multi-million-dollar properties are sometimes owned by New York executives and act as upscale beach houses.  No big deal. Just a $4 million place to kick off the flip-flops and let the sand between your toes.

The fact of the matter is that these water-view homes rarely hit the open market, but there's one being offered right now.

It's at 5 Shipyard Lane in Mattapoisett. Shipyard Lane is prime Mattapoisett Village property.  One street off the beaten path brings it privacy and tranquility, yet you're only a few steps away from Shipyard Park and the Wednesday night band under the gazebo.

If you think the outside of this home is gorgeous, wait until you see the intricate woodwork on the staircase and the white wainscoting.

This home is being offered by Milbury And Company for $3.85 million.

Take a look.
