Description

This newly renovated and lovingly restored 1940's cottage is within walking distance of Sundae School Ice Cream, Nauset Farms, and Zia Pizza and East Orleans. Bike to Nauset Beach or head into Orleans for great coffee at the Chocolate Sparrow, or for shopping, restaurants and playgrounds. The Orleans Firebirds baseball team, part of the historic Cape Cod Baseball League, plays other Cape teams nearby at Eldredge Park. The Cape Cod Rail Trail goes through the center of Orleans, and you can rent bikes for the day or week.

The main living and kitchen area is bright and airy. The kitchen has french doors that open up to a cheerful and roomy screened porch for dining and relaxing, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor living and dining area.

Our home has three charming bedrooms and two full baths. Each bedroom has its own unique character. There is a spacious master suite with a brass queen bed, ceiling fan, tv, walk-in closet, and private bath with a soaking tub. There is another bedroom with a double bed, and a third bedroom with two single beds and large windows that open onto the screened porch. Amenities include quiet yard, screened porch, cable TV, wi-fi, charcoal grill, and outdoor shower (not enclosed).

The property is on a quiet street and surrounded by woods on two sides and an open field on the other side. There is a spacious side lawn for enjoying outdoor games and activities.

You have your choice of two wonderful beaches close by: Nauset Beach on the ocean side if you want waves, or Skaket Beach on the bayside is popular for families with younger children. The cottage is about halfway between the two beaches. Charter fishing is available in Rock Harbor. Various seal watching and sunset cruises are also available and a whale watching trip out of Provincetown is an amazing experience.

Charming and comfortable cottage in super location

We feel very lucky to have found this wonderful cottage soon after it was renovated. Was the perfect size and style for our family of four, with just enough space for each of our teenagers to have their own room. The white and airy decor, with thoughtful Cape inspired details, made us feel right at home. The screened porch opening into the kitchen provided a great connection between indoor and outdoor living. Yard was great for family games. And the location, on a quiet street two miles from Nauset Beach and a mile from the Cape Cod Rail Trail and downtown Orleans, was perfect. Was even walking distance to morning coffee at Nauset Farms. Owners were terrific and obviously put much love and care into the renovation. Overall the experience was better than advertised. We hope to return next year. show more show less

Jim and Barbara have spent the last four years lovingly restoring this classic 1941 Cape Cod cottage.

We added a 300 square foot master bedroom and bath addition, and totally renovated the original 600 square foot cottage.

The interior walls are done in 1 X 8 ship lap pine boards, identical to the original exterior wall construction. All the ceilings except for the vaulted master bedroom are done in 1 X 6 pine bead-board. All walls were painstakingly spackled, sanded and hand-painted by Barbara, using Benjamin Moore Simply White, which gives the entire cottage a bright, crisp appearance.

Each room has its own distinctive identity and features, from the built-ins to the custom windows and furnishings. The cottage sits on a very quiet half acre, surrounded by woods and a daily chorus of birds. Our quiet street feels as though it has more people walking or biking than cars, which adds to the quiet and peaceful setting.

When they're not working on the cottage, Jim is a local real estate attorney and Barbara is a pediatric nurse. They also have five grown children and two young grandsons to try to keep track of.

What is special about this property?
Our cottage is unique in retaining the character and authenticity of the original 1941 cottage, while giving it the brightness and light of a new home. The original floors were sanded and refinished, which gives the cottage the amazing warmth of old pine. Adding larger and windows and french doors onto the screen porch give the cottage a light, outside feel.

Sitting on a quiet lot surrounded by woods and an empty field always accompanied by a chorus of birds gives the cottage the sense of peacefulness and privacy.

What is special about your town?
Orleans is one of the most desireable towns on Cape Cod. Close to wonderful beaches and lakes for swimming, surfing, fishing and kayaking, many fabulous restaurants and coffee shops, shopping, bike rentals, access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and nightly Cape League baseball games make Orleans a great place to vacation.
