Pretty coastal homes are often snapped up quickly, especially in this work-from-anywhere era.

One excellent example: this truly lovely Cape Cod spot, owned by Major League Baseball executive, Dan Duquette. The home was listed at $1,295,000.

After just five days on the market, the three-bedroom, 3.5-bath home seems to have found a buyer and is in pending status. It last sold in 2016 for $716,000.

Could the lightning-fast interest be attributed to the home’s ocean proximity? Or its easy access to the popular Ridge Club golf course, just a short walk down the road?

The home’s classical design, simple color palette, smart upgrades, and chic decor also could have driven the quick offer. See for yourself.

The home was built in 2002.

Enjoy hardwood floors and lots of natural light.

There is an adorable book nook just off the kitchen.

Corian counters and a stainless steel cook space

Recent improvements totaling $350,000 have been made, including a new roof and furnace, plus interior decor touches—a suite of custom cabinets, new molding, and tray ceilings.

Lofty ceilings, oversized windows, and loads of built-ins are found throughout the home. And its pretty lawn and quiet-street setting make it particularly desirable.

A two-sided fireplace anchors the main living space, while a bonus room, home office, and bedrooms with en suite baths give the home extra appeal.

A vaulted ceiling and spacious layout

A massive shower, plus room for an armoire

There are double sinks and a soaking tub, too.

A home office with room for sports memorabilia

A large patio, jungle gym, and tree line

A Massachusetts native, Duquette boasts a storied career, including general manager positions with the Boson Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles, and the Montreal Expos. He was twice awarded the distinction of Major League Baseball Executive of the Year, and he founded an eponymous sports academy in 2002.
