                      Orleans is one of the nicest towns on the cape with a quaint village center, numerous beaches (both on the bay side and the ocean side) and close to other lovely towns.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: I've been renting this house in the summers since 2007. Every year we make significant improvements to the house. In 2013 we installed a new fence and have freshly painted three rooms. There's a new powder room too. Apart from one minor exception, our tenants always have been fabulous and been very responsible caring for the house while also enjoying their time in Orleans. We are lucky to be able to share such a nice house! I live with my family in Florida and Rhode Island.

                      Why the Owner Chose Orleans:
                      The house sits on a 3/4 acre lot. It's a large lot with a great big lawn to enjoy. It's very private and natural. Orleans is a great town. You never need to drive far for beaches, shopping, groceries or restaurants. Orleans is the first town on the outer/lower cape with beaches on both the ocean and bay sides.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Large (24 x 12) kids bedroom with 6 twin beds (real beds; not bunks) is set apart from other bedrooms so kids can be free to have fun without bothering anyone!
