The Strawberry Hill Meeting House, a 1836 Universalist Church, was purchased by renowned set designers, Herbert Senn & Helen Pond in the 1973, and over the years, came to life as a magical, single family residence. With fabulous attention to detail both inside and out, this wonderful property is nestled on a small country road, just off Rte 6A in the heart of Yarmouth Port Village close to Cape Cod Bay. Short walk to nearby restaurants, museums library. The interior walls and vaulted ceilings have been painstakingly decorated in the trompe loeil style, and one has to almost touch the surfaces to tell if it is carved moldings or a painted illusion. The dramatic, main room features the oldest pipe organ built in New England, circa 1830, lovingly restored fully operational The entire wooden floor has been painted in black white, faux marble squares, and there is a large, wood burning Franklin Stove for added ambiance. The entire building has been carefully climate controlled with a modern, gas warm air heat and central A/C to protect the important features of the interior.
