My ties to Falmouth begin with my summers as a child...spending weeks with my grandparents in their Falmouth home. We spent endless hours on the beach, often returning in the evening to jump off the lifeguard chairs and gather shells.
We purchased this home in 1999 as a summer place, made many improvements, nurtured many friendships, and ultimately became enchanted with this neighborhood.
What is special about this property?
Our family has owned this home since 1999. We could not believe how fortunate we were to have found a home in this intimate, historic neighborhood. Isolated from the summer traffic, the neighborhood is tranquil and friendly. Large open spaces provide ample room for frisbee, baseball, capture the flag, soccer etc. , with the smell of salt air, a calming ocean breeze, and ocean views from every angle. It is truly a magical place.
Our children summered here, working in local shops and lifeguarding on the beaches. We have made dear and lifelong friends here and we cherish those relationships. It is essential to me that these relationships be respected when renting our place. The neighborhood is mostly families and retired folks and the close proximity to other homes requires mutual respect for privacy and courtesy.
Walk everywhere..Falmouth Heights beach is .25 miles away, Falmouth Harbor, Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard, restaurants, bike rentals are within walking distance. You can get to the main shopping areas along back streets to avoid downtown traffic. Downtown Falmouth is about 1 mile away.
What is special about your town?
Our town has everything...all the time. We have everything you would ever need...but of the course the beach is the main attraction.
My favorite things to do are : Attending the Monday evening Hyannis Sound Acapella concert at the local church, after having lobster rolls on the lawn of the church across the street from the concert hall
Spending time at the Coonamessett Farm in East Falmouth, picking local produce and attending the Jamaican Buffet
Flying a kite on the kite field down the street with the magnificent backdrop of Vinetard sound
Playing frisbee or whiffle ball with the kids ''on the circle'' just outside the front door
Having coffee outside on one of the benches in the park, chatting with the neighbors, and greeting their dogs
Riding bikes to Woods Hole along the Shining Sea bikepath
Taking the 30 minute ferry to Martha's Vineyard (you can bring your bikes on the ferry)
Having lunch at the Flying Bridge restaurant
Having pizza at the British Beer Pub
Spending a rainy afternoon having lunch in the ''porch'' at the Captain Kidd in Woods Hole (then taking a nap...at home of course).
