Description

Descended through generations of the Hughes family over 270 years, this iconic Cape Cod home can be yours to enjoy! The house combines well-preserved, charming, 1740's historic details with up-to-the-minute luxuries like a country kitchen with Miele appliances, Sonos whole house audio, 2 flat screen TV's, wifi, A/C, laundry and more. The house is perfect for up to 6 adults and 2 kids, with 3 queen, 1 double, and 1 twin bed.

There's a spacious living room and dining room, each with a fireplace, plus a wonderful screened in sunroom used as a 2nd living room provide plenty of space to enjoy your vacation. The main floor has a queen bedroom with fireplace & full bath with shower. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms - two with queen beds, one full, plus a bath with old fashioned soaking tub.

Outside is over an acre of grounds with a private bluestone patio, Weber gas grill with rotisserie, outdoor shower, and fenced in back yard for your dog (with approval).

Easy walk to Salty Market (grocery/deli/liquor along with breakfast and lunch takeout), Chequesett Chocolate - for amazing chocolate, smoothies, coffee), Captain's Choice Seafood (classic clam shack), and Truro Vineyards (wine, food truck, picnic area). Cold Storage Beach is less than a 15 minute walk (bay side) and Head of the Meadow beach at the National Seashore is minutes away. Puma Park and the Truro library are also just minutes away. And of course there's Provincetown 4 miles down Rt 6A by car, or hop on the shuttle (bus stop is around the corner). Or head the other direction, and you are in Wellfleet in 10 minutes.

Need even more space? Then add on the gorgeous, fully renovated guest cottage on the other side of the property which includes a spacious living room, bedroom, and new kitchen and bath. You'll also get a 2nd outdoor shower, BBQ, and washer/dryer, along with central A/C. (Contingent on availability. See property # for photos and details.)

We've rented in Truro for 12+ years. This house exceeded all expectations. The kitchen is fully-stocked with chef-quality cookware (a first for us) with all new appliances. The cutting knives are actually sharp! All 4 beds were extremely comfortable; no bad backaches from stays in this house! Plenty of towels (both bath and beach)! The outdoor space is great and the big fenced in yard which was a must with our two dogs. My husband loved cooking on the brand new Weber gas grill! The house only has one indoor shower. The 2nd floor bathroom only has a bathtub; no shower. However, the outdoor shower made up for the lack on two indoor showers. You cannot beat the location. Cold Storage Beach is in walking distance. Head of the Meadow is a short drive or bike ride. The Truro Vineyards/South Hollow Distillery is less than a 1/2 mile down the street. Even though the house is on 6A you can't really hear the noise from inside the house or in the backyard. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! show more show less

The house is old and wonderful, slightly warped floors, steep stairs with a "rope bannister", nice light through the windows in every room, plenty of rooms for guests, plenty of linens. The kitchen has every modern appliance and tool I know of and more that I have no idea how to use. For people who like to entertain, it is wonderful. Big tables inside and outside. Big grille. As to location, also great - 30 minute bike ride into Provincetown, 12.5 mile bike ride to Wellfleet beach, a short walk to local Truro beach, 5 minute walk to the local vineyard or convenience store. Quiet, comfortable, welcoming, homey. We have already inquired about reserving it next year. show more show less

We stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday with our three young children. It was an amazing weekend -- peaceful serene beach <5 min drive away from house. We loved going to the vinyard for lunch and drinks, just a short walk down the street. The house is amazing and a rare blend of modern amenities (kitchen is fully stocked and the monster weber grill is fantastic!), and the lovingly maintained house has 1700s charm and character.

The wonderful things about this property were the kitchen and Ken! We cooked many meals and found the kitchen to be very well equipped - everything you could possibly need was there - with great appliances and plenty of space for multiple chefs! The sun room off the kitchen was a great place to start the day, with the sun streaming in. Ken was incredibly responsive to our questions and even returned an item we had left behind. The location of this house is perfect. The Truro beaches are the absolute best and having the back parking permit was an ideal way to experience every single one of them. There were great hikes in the area and even the walk around the road across the street overlooking the bay beach was stunning. Provincetown was an easy ten minute drive away and Wellfleet another easy destination. Ken clearly takes pride in owning such an historic house and we appreciated it! show more show less

I have enjoyed the Provincetown area for 25 years and for the past 9 years owned and rented my vacation home in Provincetown with many repeat guests and all 5 star reviews. In 2014 I sold that home and purchased the Captain John Hughes house. I look forward to welcoming my guests here in bucolic N. Truro with the same level of comfort, luxury, and local knowledge. I also enjoy using the house myself during the off season so it really has a true home feel.

What is special about this property?
When the chance to buy one of the oldest homes on the Cape came up last year, given all its original detail and fantastic history I could not resist. Built by a British born sea captain who married in 1776, the house descended down through his family and is a piece of Truro history! There was his grandson, Hezekiah Hughes - a Civil War veteran/Grand Mason who etched his name in a window pane upstairs, and later his son-in-law William Young,Treasurer of Seamens Bank (and another Mason), who helped found the Provincetown Art Association and hosted every famous Ptown artist on the grounds in 1914. Now as only the 3rd owner, I've had the chance to sensitively update aspects of the house while keeping all the wonderful historic charm.

Old houses can feel small but not this one. With its open living and dining room and adjacent rear patio, this house is wonderful for entertaining. And in summer there is no place nicer than the large screened in sunroom with 2 walls of french doors open to the breezes. The adjacent kitchen has 2 Miele ovens, a warming drawer, dishwasher, and super sized fridge with ice maker to cook for a crowd. And the massive 8 burner Weber grill out back doesn't hurt either!

Lastly, I've been able to gut-renovate the nearby guest cottage, vaulting the ceiling, adding a skylight, and installing brand new kitchenette. So if you need more than 4 beds and 2 baths, the guest cottage can be rented as well.

What is special about your town?
Enjoy peace and quiet here in North Truro's Pond Village with the excitement of Provincetown less than 10 minutes away by car or shuttle. Easy bike ride to bay side beaches and of course the National Seashore beaches are minutes away. Walk to Truro Vineyards for a winery tour/tasting, or head into Ptown for everything from clam shacks to fine dining, not to mention art galleries, shopping, and nightlife. Charming Wellfleet is also just 10 minutes in the other direction for more food, art, and shopping options. The Salty Market (convenience store, liquor, sandwiches), Chequesett Chocolate, and Captain's Choice clam shack are a 5 minute walk down the street.
