Simply Delightful. Enter this charming Cape Cod cottage from a private parking area off this secluded little cul-de-sac and walk down a short hallway to ... WOW! An extraordinary sweeping vista afforded by multi-paned windows and wide sliding glass doors which open onto the 40-foot deck. Start and end your day with serenity, gaze over peaceful salt marshes and Cape Cod Bay. Watch the sun rise over the Bay. Be awed by starry, starry nights. Make a wish upon a shooting star. Nature performs - four shows daily - the tide ebbs and flows to eight feet and more every six hours. Birds abound - Great Blue Heron, Mallard Duck, Canada Geese, Osprey, owls, hawks, songbirds and of course seagulls.

In the Garden you will find:: A cutting garden - fresh flowers for you. Go across the railway track and fly-fish for Striped Bass, weakfish and blues in the marsh at hight tide.
In the Spring, wonderful Rhododendron bloom in the yard, and within walking distance (a longish walk), discover Heritage Gardens, a museum and garden complex which includes extensive gorgeous displays of Rhododendron and azalea, and a wonderful selection of Art, Motor Vehicle, Military, Baseball and other Musea, including a REAL 1902 Merry-Go-Round with rare original carved animals - endless rides included with admission to the grounds ...
