Truro house description

We think you’ll find this recently renovated house just about your most comfortable and stylish Cape rental option.

Traditional shingle outside, it's spacious, bright and airy on the inside. Rebuilt by the architect-owners in 2009, it combines all the best features of homes they have experienced as renters themselves. The layout has been thoughtfully planned so that guests can enjoy each other’s company, yet also find their own space.

The house is at the end of a private pine wood drive that feels very secluded, yet is only a 5-minute walk through some of the Cape's most beautiful dune-scape to Fisher Beach on Cape Cod Bay. No wonder artist Edward Hopper chose this location for his own house! (But please note this house is NOT on the beach, and has no sea view.)

The house is sited to capture breezes, with a large screened porch and windows in every room in at least two directions. The kitchen was planned by people who love to cook, so prepping meals is a pleasure.

For those in the know about the area, this house has a prime location: proximity to Old County and South Pamet roads means many attractions can be enjoyed while avoiding the main Cape traffic artery of Route 6. And you are relatively removed from densely built up new construction. Please note our house is NOT located on the beach, and there is no sea view.

We think one of the great attractions of this part of the Cape and this house is the easy access to four types of water: bay, ocean, tidal river, and freshwater ponds - in this case, the nearest ones being Fisher Beach, Ballston Beach (20 mins. by bicycle going under Rte 6), the Pamet River, and Slough or Spectacle ponds, among others.

Although 3 miles from Wellfleet and 12 miles from Provincetown, and their restaurants and sights, in the summertime you have the option from this house of a 10-min. bike ride to ''Jams'' deli in Truro Center for the newspaper, a quart of milk, or other treats.

                      One of the great attractions of this part of the Cape and our house is the easy access to bay-side beaches (5 minutes. by foot), ocean beaches (20 mins. by bicycle), the Pamet River, and fresh water ponds/lakes. This house is located in less built-up SOUTH Truro.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: The owners are from the East Coast and have been coming to the Cape Cod with friends and family for a number of years. Dad is an architect, and personally planned and supervised the extensive modernization of this originally 1960s cabin.

                      Why the Owner Chose Truro:
                      We fell in love with the winding drive through the scrub pines and the truly spectacular terrain of dunes and beach flora which you meander through en route to the beach. No wonder artist Edward Hopper couldn't stop painting it! Fisher Beach is a treasure - long, wide and unpopulated. Perfect for walks, swimming or a night time cookout. The privacy yet accessibility of the location can't be beat.
