Falmouth house description

A great Falmouth Cape Cod vacation home with a prived, in ground pool! An in-town location - just 6/10 mile down a tree lined street to Falmouth's wonderful Main St, full of lots of locally owned restaurants, bars, stores etc. Window A/C units in all 4 bedrooms (during the summer only).

Our home has a very comfortable layout, it kind of feels like a condo. It is a ranch, so all 4 bedrooms are on the main floor. All flooring (except kitchen) is hardwood.

We have a flatscreen TV in the Livingroom, plus another TV in one of the bedrooms and in the basement - note it is not a finished basement but we do have couches down there, makes for good overflow, but is not to be considered excellent living space, because... its a basement.

The pool is wonderful! In 2012 we put a new liner on it and installed a new filter. It is a very private backyard, with 6' fence all around, and nice trees/shrubs to provide additional privacy. This pool also has a diving board, unlike ALL new pools!

We have a large gas grill (with spare propane tank) and a picnic table in the back yard, it will become an extension of the house for you. We also have assorted chairs/tables/loungers for the patio next to the pool.

Walk to Falmouth Cape Cod Village (.6 mile away, down quiet tree lined streets), if you can get away from the pool, WiFi, and ping pong table. This place has it all. It's only 300 yards to the Shining Sea Bike Path, so you can bike down to Woods Hole to catch the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, or just enjoy the historic village or aquarium. The Shining Sea Bike Path is widely regarded as a true gem of Falmouth.

You will love our Cape Cod vacation home. The large patio overlooks the kidney shaped pool, the pool has a new filter and liner in 2012. The bedrooms and living room are all hardwood floors, and all four bedrooms have window A/C units to take the edge off a hot day or night!
The basement has a couch & love seat, as well as cable TV/DVD, so kids (or adults!) can go downstairs to watch a show or movie, while others enjoy themselves upstairs.

Note: it is an unfinished basement; low ceilings, we don't consider this a main feature of the house, but it is an acceptable and usable space for those who don't require perfection.

The location is perfect. You can walk to Seafood Sam's Restaurant (1/4 mile) as well as others... and only a 10 minute walk to Falmouth Village, where you can enjoy the shops, restaurants and bars that make our Main Street one of the best in all of New England.

High quality throughout - even a flat panel TV to watch the Sox!
The kitchen is large and well equipped, with a skylight for natural light. The patio has a great gas grill and table for outdoor eating. There are also plenty of chairs/lounges on the upper terrace for people to enjoy around the pool. The pool has a diving board, pretty rare these days! Call with any additional questions, as I'm happy to talk about my home. The rate is $3200 a week in season, far less off season. In season we only rent by the week, Friday to Friday. Before June 20 or after Labor Day we can rent by the weekend, $1200 to $1000 a weekend depending on the weekend.

The closest beach is Surf Drive, it is exactly 1.2 miles away, a little far to walk but easy biking distance, plus they have a very large (paid) parking lot. The beach has showers, bathrooms, and food available.

                          About: I own several homes in the Falmouth area that I rent out. I also, since 1998, own a real estate agency in Falmouth. We handle about 300 vacation rentals.

                          Why Falmouth:
                          I simply had to own this home the first time I saw it. I love the location - being able to walk to everything is what makes a true vacation in my mind.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Pool, A/C, Wifi, location
