Property description

A lovely historic Harwich Port home - newly restored, with a comfortable wide-open floor plan that's perfect for entertaining. The yard is private, surrounded by birches, arbor vitae and hydrangeas. Ideal for families or grandparents hosting family visits.

Downstairs are 2 bedrooms, both with double beds, and a bathroom with a tub/jacuzzi the size of a small pool. Upstairs is a larger bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, a bath with shower and a loft with a trundle bed that sleeps 2, sitting/TV/game area, and a balcony overlooking the Golf Course.

The Harwich Port Golf Course Clubhouse is 50 feet across the street. Main St. is a block away, cross Main St. and the beach is one more block. Walk to the weekly Main Street open music festivals and art shows.

Enjoy the charming seafood restaurants and the ambiance of three harbors in one Port. Watch the colorful sailboat races from the beach.

Harwich Port is a well-kept secret with discreet charm and true New England character. The elegant historic churches still conduct services and host wonderful pancake breakfasts and lobster luncheons.

Some have weekly dances. And parents and children alike will be enchanted by the world-class performances at the Harwich Junior Theatre, a cherished local institution.

A perfect vacation retreat.

Harwich Port offers many unique attractions: The Brooks Museum features a fascinating history of cranberry harvesting; The Harwich Junior Theatre is one of the oldest and most-respected theatre groups on and off the Cape, and their productions are world-class and fun - the characters come out after the show, delighting kids and adults. The 3 harbors are breathtakingly beautiful. You can enjoy chowder and lobster rolls while overlooking Saquatucket Harbor at Brax Landing. There is a little triangular park near the post office, which hosts charming outdoor arts exhibitions. The go-carts, bumper boats, trampolines, batting cages and public tennis courts are always popular, as are the unique ice-cream shops, boutiques and restaurants. The beaches are clean and lovely to watch the sailing races out of Stone Horse Yacht Club. Finally, a trip to the Port-o-Call Gift Shop is like a trip back in time - not to be missed.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

Why the Owner Chose Harwich Port:
My family had a summer home in Harwich Port when I was young, and it has been a love affair ever since. Ask anyone who has spent time in Harwich Port, winter or summer, and they'll tell you it is a hidden jewel among the more well-known towns of the Cape. Once you've experienced the discreet charm of this elegant and intimate place, you'll be back again and again.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is on the historic register. It was in bad shape when we bought it. We weren't allowed to tear it down, so we repaired the old and added the new. The result is stunning, and more than once we've been asked to share the house's custom architectural design. The magnificent fireplace is designed according to the classic Count Rumsford specifications. The comfortable wide-open floor plan combined with beautiful natural light create a stunning and welcoming ambiance. When you walk through the large arbor vitae and into the yard, you feel like you're in a cocoon. The yard is private, surrounded entirely by birch trees, with a row of hydrangeas along side. The only sounds are the numerous species of birds chirping and singing, the golfers swearing at themselves or laughing at each other, and the lovely chimes of the Congregational Church, announcing each quarter hour. At night you can hear the soft baritone of the Kilpond Marker Buoy a mile off the coast. The salt air is like a tonic, and to sleep with the windows open and drink it in is intoxicating. It's nice to know the kids can hop on their bikes and safely ride to the ice-cream parlor in four minutes, but they often prefer to walk. A block away is Port-o-Call, an enchanting gift shop that hasn't changed in 60 years.
