Here is your chance to own a magnificent historic Sea Captains home also known as ''The Gingerbread House.'' Built in 1849 by Captain Frederick Howes, this home retains all the finest details of his era. Currently listed on the National Historic Register, it is a fine example of Gothic Revival architecture both inside and out. Having been used as a B&B in the past, the current eighty seat cafe' on the first floor, is well known for its delicious breakfast/lunch menu paired with a favorite beer or wine cocktail. But this house would also make an amazing and spacious single-family home with just a few tweaks. The second and third floors feature owner/staff living quarters with up to 6 bedrooms, a small kitchen and a bonus room perfect for an office or artist/writers' studio. Other notable interior features include a commercial kitchen, full walkout basement for storage, high ceilings, two staircases, wide pine floors, fireplace, widows' walk, huge windows, some with stained glass to let in the sun. Outdoor features include patio, off street parking, a handicap ramp, and backyard space. The wonderful ''in town'' location allows you to walk to all the other charming homes and business
