South Wellfleet house description

Lovingly restored in 2002 and 2003 by its owners, this 200-year-old cottage is nestled in a grove of Locust Trees, situated on the banks of Wellfleet's historic Duck Creek. The 3 bedroom, nook-filled home boasts rare views of the Duck Creek marsh and its wildlife, and gives vacationers a multitude of indoor and outdoor options for privacy and relaxation. A large kitchen provides everything needed to create a meal worthy of the home's formal dining room, yet it offers a comfy spot from which to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a pastry from the bakery located right across the street.

Whether it's enjoying the nature from the home's 200 square foot screened in porch, relaxing in the backyard under shade-bearing trees, or sinking into any of the home's comfortable sofas, chairs or beds to read a book, the home affords amenities for young and old.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: Mike is an engineer, and Brad is a communications professional. Mike hails from Providence and attended West Point, and Brad is originally from Los Angeles and attended UCLA. After living in Boston for many years, the couple now lives in Washington, D.C.

                          Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
                          This property simply has it all. A walk to Wellfleet's galleries is simple. Parking the car and leaving it for days at a time is doable. Strolls in the national seashore are minutes away, as are the ponds and beaches. This is an absolute jewel of a home, which is located in Wellfleet's town center on the edge of Duck Creek.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Herons nest in the marsh behind the house, and the mellow tones of the town church bells help pass the hours and minutes at this home. A gentle breeze blows from Cape Cod Bay through Wellfleet Harbor directly to the home's backyard. Sunsets are beautiful from the back yard.
