Description

Description

Enjoy spectacular sunsets over the bay, cool breezes, watch the miracle of tidal shifts. Listen to the abundant sounds of birds, chase hermit crabs, walk to nearby Duck pond, ocean beach, bay and bike path. Or out the front door for a marsh stroll around the water, 2 minute walk cross the street for food shopping and post office, or spread out inside on breakfast room window seat, living room couches, or spacious downstairs bedroom.

Originally used as a year round home and pre-school, this fully furnished 3 bedroom home is situated on an acre of bayside land. The two story, 1 wing home allows for privacy between upstairs and downstairs spectacular master bedroom; upstairs double bedroom with skylight and loft for additional sleeping, twin bedroom, double living room area, breakfast area which opens on to deck, dining room and study area. Simple, functional and beautiful.

(There is a downstairs studio apartment with year-round caretaker.)

Very family friendly. Out of the fray of summer crowds. 7 minutes to beach or pond.Play board games in front of the fire and entertain inside or in enclosed playground area outside. Aesthetically pleasing original art work on the walls, shelves of fiction and non-fiction to choose from.

Our house is very accessible to route 6 and yet uniquely situated to be sheltered from the sounds of traffic. Ironically, a number of other houses which are actually farther off Route 6 on the Bay seem to be much more affected by car noise coming across the marsh. Our house noises are the wind off the Bay and the birds. The only moderate traffic sounds are heard from the parking area which is a distance from the “front” door and separated by a fence.

Peaceful, Spectacular and Well-Loved Home on Gorgeous Tidal Bay

What an honor to stay in your beautiful home. Waking up to the birds, watching the tides flow in and then leave, eating wholesome food at the table, trying to read on the deck but getting distracted by the marsh and the light, having time, space and peace to face each other and be quiet and fulfilled.

This place will stay with us and we leave part of ourselves here.

Perfect spot -- peaceful, gorgeous, great kitchen

We had a truly wonderful stay over Labor Day. Betty was responsive, accommodating and easy to work with. The property was great - clean and as advertised. Peaceful deck looking over a bay, great kitchen, cozy setup. I'm a light sleeper and never heard road noise. We were there with a 3-year-old, and it was great.

I love this house

I love this house - not merely as a place but as an idea about how to live. There is a gorgeous and thoughtful peace to be found here.

It's always dangerous to probe into the moral basis of beauty-- the sea is beautiful but is there moral content to it? Perhaps yes, to be experienced in its implacable will to exist... But some beauty shows its relation to the good quite openly, plainly, and this house -- with its unfussy order, with its layout and design and the light that it draws in, with its artwork (especially that) -- is abundantly one of those places.

You can feel a goodness all around the place. There are so many areas in the house where you can sit and watch the tide change slowly in the tidal basin out the back windows, watch the extraordinary multitude of birds at the different feeders outside along the ridge where the hill drops off behind the house. Cape Cod despite its summer crowds -- especially in the upper Cape -- remains something of a wild place and you can feel that presence of nature here, away from the road, pointed toward the woods and the water below. Everything about the house shows the love and care with which it has been kept and with which life inside it has been lived. I cannot recommend it more highly.
