Property description

To reach the pagoda treehouse you drive up the road and into a private drive chiseled through pines that 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 waking up looking out any time of year it is like a dream, the scrub pines, the oak, the birds fluttering by, this is why you are here for this bliss, the serenity of the treehouse in the woods.
There is a large brick fireplace in dining area ....which in the colder moments turns even a cheeseburger into a romantic affair.
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 surrounded by myriad shades of green. Hours can be spent on the dining deck suspended in the lush Truro nature.
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 ...a place designed for meditation, contemplation and delicious inspired forms of creativity that the treehouse delivers.
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 choose 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 pagodas, 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 suit off.
The bathrooms and kitchens all have hand made tiles from Mexico and France, the living area and kitchen sports bookcases for tenants to enjoy...its a pretty varied collection: poetry, fiction, history, travel, cookbooks, and mysteries from tenants past stays.
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, surrounded by 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 surprisingly warm water as early as May.

Sunrise views from the living room, decks, and master suite make waking up a delight. You almost do feel the infinite horizon of possibility.
The bathroom in the master bedroom was the dream bathroom of the architect Charlie Zehnder who believed bathrooms should be sumptuous: so you can lie back in the jacuzzi oversized tub and the vista in one direction is the treetops with birds fluttering by and in the other tub direction you face yourself before the mirrored wall.
He had celadon green tiles surround the tub so it might feel natural and insisted only real wood beam moldings even around the light.

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

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. But really it was because a friend said everyone should have s spot in the world that speaks to them.
