Barnstable estate description

Step into a peaceful byone era and experience the bucolic family compound of your dreams! Imagine yourself enwrapped by sun and sea, brushed by a forest of bamboo. Let go of life's stress and inhale the ever-changing vistas of Barnstable Harbor, and the character of Cape Cod's sand bars, dunes, and beach grasses. How long has it been that you spread out over eight acres of woodland by the sea? Our compound sleeps up to 12 guests and includes a charming guest house. We have a quaint boathouse & deck nestled at the bottom of a grass staircase by the water’s edge, a private pebble and sand beach with sand bars, and complete with kayaks and a canoe. Designed by a world famous architect for relaxed country living, this vintage home offers complete privacy and easy accessibility to all that Cape Cod has to offer to summer sojourners. View early sunrises over the harbor and brilliant sunsets over the estuaries! Add another page to the lasting memories of the special summers of your heart!
