Truro house description

A private drive chiseled through pines leads to an architectural three-level house surrounded with sliding glass doors. Enclosed cedar decks allow for private sunbathing and entertaining. Large master suite has sunken jacuzzi and restful treetop views. Cozy/romantic all seasons with wood-stove in master bedroom and fireplace in dining area.
The house has free local and long distance on the land line as well as wi fi high speed internet and Comcast cable television.
The house is located on just under an acre of lush scrub pine woods. When you're inside the house and look out you feel as if you're sitting inside this incredible natural world.
From the dining deck, the view is nothing but green. You can't see the beach or the sunset but you don't have the sounds of endless people walking up and down your path.
Instead you feel as if you've landed in your own private retreat.
The sprawling bay beach is just under a half mile from the house but it's an easy walk which usually takes about ten minutes. There is a bike rack so if you prefer biking you'll get there in about five minutes. (Car two minutes)
One of the best features of the house allows you to never step foot in your car if you chose not to as the house is walking distance to a farm, fish market, and liquor store, and in the other direction a cafe with great capuccino and pizza. Next to the fish market, there's a shop which will provide healthy wrap sandwiches for your beach picnic.
The architect Charlie Zehnder who designed the house, while inspired by asian temples and treehouses, gave great thought to the concept of privacy for vacationers. For this reason, the bedrooms on the first floor (each with a double bed) are separated from the master bedroom suite (with a queen sized bed) by an open living/dining/kitchen area on the second floor.
All of the surrounding decks are enclosed no need to worry about taking your top off.
The bathrooms and kitchens all have interesting hand made tiles from Mexico and France, the living area and kitchen sports bookcases for tenants to enjoy.
Longnook ocean beach, which many believe to be the most beautiful beach in the world is a scenic five minute drive from the house. For a long stroll you cannot beat this beach, and I've walked beaches around the world, it's hard to beat Longnook beach for it's sheer expanse, the delicious dunes, with only the gulls as company, thanks to the National Seashore which has kept this beach pristine.

A short drive from the house three hidden ponds with wonderfully warm water.

Sunrise views from the living room, decks, and master suite and for those who enjoy bird sightings.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      The house is nestled in just under an acre of pine woods.

                      Decks are enclosed for privacy. A great place to relax and watch birds, but if you want to take a stroll here's what you can easily walk to: the bay in one direction (10 minutes) in the other direction, a farm, fish market, or cafe with great capucino and pizza, a bistro restaurant with luscious takeout. If you like to bike, you can cross Route Six and bike to a wonderful trail overlooking the dunes.

                      A short drive from the house, wonderful hidden ponds with deliciously warm water.

                      Superb sunrise views from the living room, decks, and master bedroom.

                      It is one of the last houses designed by the renowned Wellfleet architect Charlie Zehnder


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: I went for a walk on the beach in Truro and fell in love with Truro and after traveling all over the world, I'm positive this is the most beautiful spot.

                      Why the Owner Chose Truro:
                      I bought a house in Truro because I think it has the best beaches in the world, and I wanted privacy-thus I chose an acre in the woods.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Bird watching is wonderful most times of the year, and they sing in a multitude of tongues.
