Description

Description

Dating back to the colonial period, the original house was part of the first town of Wellfeet. Rescued from ruin in the 1930's, the house has been lovingly improved and is now a spacious home. A relaxing walk along a path through woods takes you to Herring Pond. Continuing on the sand road you pass Slough and Horseleech ponds to arrive at the beach! The beach (just north of Newcomb's Hollow) is, we think, the best ocean beach in the lower 48. The lawn, the hammock, the locust trees are perfect for a lazy summer afternoon with easy access to salt water and fresh water swimming. The kitchen and adjacent dining room are superb for large gatherings and multiple cooks. The house is 1/2 mile from Route 6 and 2 miles from Wellfleet Center--and the excellent public library. It sits on 4 1/2 acres in the National Seashore with no immediate neighbors.

Four bedrooms -- two singles, one queen, and one double are on the second floor. The first floor study has a futon couch and can be comfortably used as a bedroom. This room is right next to the downstairs full bathroom. Outside, the original garage was converted first to a dorm room, then to an artists studio, and is now an private room with double bed and single bed. Perfect for a couple with a young child. The Herring River (actually a brook) flows past at the foot of the lawn.

Polite dogs are welcome. Internet access is via cell tower. The speed is slow. Email can be done, but not internet browsing. Cell phone reception has improved with a booster.
