Mashpee house description

Enjoy your vacation on this quiet, private way, leading to Hamlin Pond, where you can launch our three kayaks to go exploring or use your own small boat, which you can keep in a shallow slip at the same spot. The uninhabited Washburn's Island, part of the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve,is directly across from Seconsett and well worth checking out, as are all the inlets and rivers. Little River Boat Yard is located on the island, for those that have a boat that needs launching.

Our small bay beach is excellent for relaxing, boat and bird watching, our ospreys have a nest right there and are quite something to observe. For activity, you need try the quohogging and clamming. Go dig up your dinner and make some delicious chowder or stuffed quohogs, extra spicy or your favorite recipe.

South Cape Beach is a short drive away and can be accessed using no main roads and no traffic. Spend the day there swimming, relaxing and walking the long beach.

This is a wonderfully roomy house for families looking to enjoy themselves, but not be tripping over each other. There is a large deck that runs the length of the house, with awnings. It seems to be where everyone congregates. It is a natural place for grilling, relaxing and having some fun after a hard day of play. The large, enclosed shower is so refreshing to come home to and is just off the laundry room.

There are three bedrooms, two upstairs with queen beds and one downstairs with 3 twin beds. The open floor plan in the living area has two sliders leading to the sunny backyard deck. The large dining area and kitchen lead to an enclosed, front sunporch, laundry room and bathroom.

There are many excellent golf courses within minutes of the island. We have par 3s, executive, and regulation courses. There is even miniature golf at the Popponesset Market Place, with it's small shops and restaurants.

Mashpee Commons is a 5 minute drive from the island. It contains many well know stores such as Talbots, Coldwater Creek and Pottery Barn, Panera, Gap, to name a few and many unique gift and clothing stores. There are also some excellent restaurants, a movie theater and grocery stores.
Downtown Falmouth has many small shops including the well known Christmas Tree Shop, not to be missed! A day trip to Martha's Vineyard is easy to access by the ferries that run from Falmouth and Woods Hole.

Seconsett Island is easily accessible to either Falmouth or Mashpee, but private enough to still remain undiscovered by many.

                          If you have a flat bottom boat such as a small Whaler there is space to keep it there too.

                          We have a boatyard here with launching services available.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: I came to the Cape right out of college and fell in love with it. I became a year round resident in 1987 and started teaching for the Falmouth School System. I retired in 2010. I love golf and what better place to be than on the Cape. I have lived on Seconsett Island since 1987. I live right across the way from 4 Bayview. I love having new neighbors in the summer.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is located on a private dirt road so it's quiet yet close to everything. The back of the house is enclosed with a high wooden fence and tall hemlocks and a deck with awnings that runs the length of the house. It feels private and secluded. I love how you can just go across the street and get the kayaks that are right there and launch them into Hamlin Pond then paddle out into Waquoit Bay. There's so many places to explore. I have quahog rakes and baskets available and again you just walk to the bay and rake up some dinner while the ospreys watch from their perch. Sunsets are outstanding and on a clear night you can even see the 4th of July Falmouth fireworks.
