Delft Haven II Condominium (Unit 1).
Cottage 1 (Unit 1) has one side to Commercial Street, on the north side of the compound. Originally a freestanding building, it has since been linked to Unit 5 through a common area ornamented by a shallow colonnade. The two together form a bracket that encloses the north half of the central lawn at Delft Haven, creating a kind of shingled quadrangle. As originally apportioned, the 513-square-foot cottage had two bedrooms, a living room with fireplace, a kitchen, and a bathroom. When Peter L. Boyle and John J. Boyle made Delft Haven a condominium in 1977, the first buyers of Cottage 2 were two women from Bethlehem, Conn., who paid $41,500 for it. They sold it in 1980 for $55,575. A husband and wife paid $70,000 for it three years later. They sold it to a Barnstable man in 1987 for $125,000. Two years later, he sold it for $145,000 to a resident of Manchester, Conn.
