Description

Description

This building was constructed in 1985 as a sculpture studio and living space, in which we could work and live as my elderly parents occupied the main house on this property. This living space, (the rental part) is facing west with lovely views where one can watch the beautiful sunsets over the bay. Sheltered by pine and oak trees, it is very private and hidden from the main house.

Downstairs, there is one large open room with a wood stove (kitchen, dining and living space) and a bathroom. The two bedrooms (a queen and a double) are upstairs with sloping ceilings and skylights (with shades and covers, in case you don't like the light coming in). The bedrooms are off either side of the stairs, and there is one door between them.

The kitchen area has a fridge, sink and counters, but no stove. Instead there is a double hotplate, an oven, a microwave oven, several electric pots and an electric frying pan. A large sliding door off the main room goes onto the deck, where there is a big red gas grill with a side burner for cooking with a pot or pan (very good for cooking in hot weather). There are chairs and a picnic table, as well as a low table for small gatherings. One can practically live outdoors!

In the basement, there’s a laundry machine, but no dryer, but there’s a clothesline outdoors by the parking lot.

To get to the studio, there is a special little road going from the main house parking lot. At the end, there is enough room for four cars. You can walk down the little road to the dirt road that brings you to the property and follow it on down to the beach, which is quite private. A five-minute walk north from that beach will take you to Ryder Beach, or if you head south you can get to Duck Harbor in about 15 minutes. But we always feel that our beach is the best!

Don't worry if you can't find our visitor ratings; we have never rented this space before!

The house has been in our family since it was built in 1939. We live here for eight months of the year, so we seldom think of it as a ''rental'', but instead it is the place we think of as ''home''. It is filled with our books and paintings and when people rent it we feel that it is more like inviting people into a part of our life, than running a rental business. But at the same time we are very careful to keep our distance, to allow our renters to live there as though it were their own.
While it is rented we live in a building that we had used for several years as a studio. It is hidden behind a group of trees, near enough to be helpful if there are ever any problems with the main house, but far enough away to insure privacy for all.



What is special about this property?
What we love about it:
The view, which is ever changing, depending on the weather and the season.
The fact that is is our home and was my parents home, which they built when they were young, and there were almost no trees on Boundbrook. It has many of the objects they acquired here on the Cape, old books their Cape Cod friends wrote, paintings by other friends and family, furniture that has been in the family for generations. But also we love the fact that the beds, though of that era, all have new mattresses or toppers so even though they fit in with the age and look of the house, they are very comfy.
We love that we can walk to the beach whenever we like and that it is never crowded there. Our grandchildren (9 & 11) can walk down the dirt road without worrying, because cars drive slowly and it is safe. It is the highest spot on the Island (which is no longer really an island), so there are always breezes, and one is always aware of the landscape. And we especially love that there are no other houses nearby. You can feel totally free and private!

What is special about your town?
Wellfleet is still the same small town that it has been for generations, though in the summer it attracts many people from out of town to share the beautiful beaches and the small town atmosphere. There are concerts and plays and movies nearby. It also has a marvelous library with extremely helpful staff. There are excellent restaurants of many kinds, some with music, some quiet, different kinds of menus. Something for everyone!
