Scituate is ideal for a family vacation- the charm of Cape Cod, without the traffic and congestion; a working Harbor has a fishing fleet, yacht rentals; deep sea fishing; whale watching expeditions; we have a wonderful family beach, beautiful coastal cycling and kayaking. Scituate is one of the oldest communities on the East Coast (first settled in 1623); if you want to bone up on your history or go shopping, downtown Boston is a easy trip by ferry or commuter train; Cape Cod is 45 minutes away and Plymouth is less than 30 minutes away. Historic downtown Hingham has restaurants, shops and some spectacular historic homes; downtown Scituate has a cinema, spa, shopping, casual and fine dining and a totally pictuesque harbor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I summered in Scituate as a child and have lots of wonderful memories of lazy summer days at the beach. My husband and I moved to MA from New York City in 1985 and spent years looking for property near the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Scituate:
We own the house next door and bought this house because we were worried that someone would tear it down. The house was originally built in 1880 and is one of the oldest properties in Minot. We wanted to preserve the character of the house, so we completely gutted renovated the, but tried to keep the unique features and the original line and character of the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The neighborhood is a throwback to the 50's--unlocked doors, front porches and everyone knowing everyone. The house has gorgeous water views from the very sunny kitchen, and lots of unique features that are hard to describe. One room - the 'tower room'- took the master carpenter 6 weeks to complete the finish work. Everyone falls in love with that room.
