Sandwich is a charming, quaint, unique, and picturesque coastal community located in Barnstable County, Massachusetts. The population at the 2010 census was 20,675. A very welcoming community, Sandwich is known as the village where Cape Cod begins. It’s also the oldest town on the Cape. Conveniently located about 90 minutes from Boston, Providence and Provincetown with easy access to Route 6, Sandwich is an ideal location or getaway destination.
In August of 2015, the average annual selling price of a single-family home was $391,964, and the average for a condo was $217,469. No multi-families have sold in the last 12 months in Sandwich.
The 6 mile long Sandy Neck Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod. East Sandwich and Town Neck Beaches are also great options, and the many whale watching and harbor cruises nearby provide additional perspectives for witnessing all the beauty Sandwich has to offer. From the seashore to fresh water ponds, salt water estuaries, and bird sanctuaries, the environment in Sandwich is peaceful and inviting.
After walking along the historic homes, sea captain mansions, and charming cottages it’s hard not to wonder what it would be like to live here. The church steeples, boardwalk, countless dining options, and the best New England clam chowder and lobster rolls around have probably turned a good share of tourists into residents.
A fun past-time for many residents and visitors alike is to enjoy a stroll, bike ride, or picnic along the beautiful Cape Cod Canal, the widest sea level canal in the world.
02563 is also a town rich with history and working museums. A big draw for people all over the world is the renowned Heritage Museum & Gardens, an antique car museum and galleries surrounded by beautiful and lush gardens. Another popular destination is the Sandwich Glass Museum. It houses original pieces crafted during the 1800’s and also provides glass blowing demonstrations.
Sandwich has avoided strip mall type development which has helped to retain its charm. Instead, shops and restaurants reflect the style of their owners.
A few years ago Sandwich was voted one of Coastal Magazine’s best places to live. The longer you visit, the less likely you are to leave!
