Property description

This carefully maintained 1200sq.ft. cottage is ideal for family vacations from spring through fall: less than 350 yards from sandy beaches on Cape Cod Bay, an ideal spot for swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, and matchless shell-fishing. Stroll home for lunch, a late afternoon nap, or back to the western-facing beach for the beautiful sunsets. Close to art galleries, fresh water ponds, restaurants, and a short drive to ocean beaches in the isolation of the National Seashore.

The house has one bedroom on the first level, and three on the second floor (one of which is ideal for a nursery), with a 160 sq. ft. deck off the master bedroom; two baths, and a recently renovated kitchen. A new Vermont Castings gas stove keeps the evenings warm when needed. At the rear, a patio and outdoor shower are linked to the upper deck. The wooded setting is perfect for quiet relaxed living.

Year Purchased: 1972

About: The McCarthy family has vacationed here in Wellfleet for over 40 years and has offered this cottage during the months of July and August. We want to share this secluded family getaway and its spectacularly diverse surroundings.

Why South Wellfleet:
The house is an updated timber-frame shingle cottage with brick floors on the first level and pine paneled walls throughout, much as most cape cod style cottages were built in the 40's,& 50's. Informal living with charming touches....

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walking distance to bay beaches and shellfishing, with a private deck off the master bedroom looking into a mature pine grove covering the rear of the property.
