Bradford 263.jpg


Looks can be deceiving. This picturesque full Cape has a center chimney, windows tucked right under the eaves, and plenty of vintage neighbors. So you’d think it was Ye Reale Olde Deale. But it was constructed in 1965, according to town records. The lot it occupies once extended 258 feet, all the way to Commercial Street, where it was numbered 556. That large lot was divided into the current No. 556, the 263A Bradford Street lot, and this one. Elizabeth R. Carlos (b ±1901), a longtime insurance agent and colleague of Robert F. Silva, lived here. Silva’s son David L. Silva, one of the proprietors of the Red Inn, acquired the property in 2006.
