Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I was born and grew up in Orleans, and after serving as Head of School for Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, MA, I retired in 2008 and moved back to the Cape full time. I work now as a consultant in arts education and organizational development.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans:
This property is just down the road from the house in which I grew up on Rock Harbor. May family has owned that house for over 150 years, This house is an old sea captain's house, built in 1830, just down the road from my childhood home. It is in an historic district of the town. My partner and I have restored the house so that it is comfortable, has modern amenities such as a new kitchen,yet retains its chracter as an historic house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a charming old house, but comfortable for families. I have grandchildren so I know from experience that the house is good for all ages!
