Wellfleet house description

Exquisite Post and Beam family home and Guest House on top of the highest dune on Griffin Island, within the Cape Cod National Seashore, in beautiful coastal Wellfleet on the Outer Cape. Property and home are private, serene, luxurious, breathtaking. Outside: unanimously outstanding views in every direction: to the North over Cape Cod Bay towards Provincetown, West towards the sunset over low-tide sandbars and the full expanse of Cape Cod Bay, South over Great Island (uninhabited 7 mile long nature preserve and walking trails) and Wellfleet Harbor, and East overlooking a pine forest. Complete privacy inside as well as outside; large wood decks that face every direction. Inside: exposed beams, high ceilings, reclaimed wood floors and huge windows- the house is full of sunlight and warmth. Comfortable, oversized seating. Indoor and outdoor dining and living.

A short walk across the top of the dune leads to private beach stairs and the wide expanse of the bay below. Miles of secluded beach in both directions. Extensive network of far-reaching sandbars at low tide, suitable for exploration and play. At high tide, swim in waves more gentle than the ocean's.

Property adjacent to the nature preserve of Great Island, with only pedestrian access. Long trails through indigenous forests, tidal marshes, dunes and beaches: wildlife habitat and secluded paradise.

Post and Beam home and Guest House designed by Architect-Owner who lives in the neighboring town. Main House has three bedrooms including Master Bedroom (queen), Guest Bedroom (twins), and Loft (queen), two full baths (showers only), and an outdoor shower. Detached Guest House top floor has Master Bedroom Suite (king) with whirlpool tub. First Floor has separate entrance, kitchenette, half Bath, combined Dining-Lining Room with gas fireplace and flat screen TV.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: I am the Architect - Owner who lives in the next town. I am a third generation family member living on the Outer Cape. My husband and I are now retired full time there.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet:
                  This home, constructed in 1990, is a family home which we wish to keep in the family by renting it in the summer. It is full of antiques and personal art work. We expect tenants to treat it as their own home away from home and respect the quality presented to them.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Incredible privacy and 280 degree waterfront views of entire Cape. 5 acres of land. in summer months, you can see full moon come up over Wellfleet Harbor and sun sets over Bay. Our extended family celebrates Thanksgiving in this house yearly. Children happily enjoy the interior open spaces and lofts, as well as the sand bars on the beach.
