Harwich house description
4 Bedroom, 2 & 1/2 bath (w/enclosed,hot/cold,outdoor shower), a.c. in all bedrooms, waterfront, with private beach and docks on both Long Pond and Black Pond. Encompassing 743-acres, Long Pond is the largest fresh water lake on the Cape and voted a 'Greatest Lake in New England' by Boston Magazine(2009). With 430 feet of Long Pond waterfront, and more than 300 feet of Black Pond waterfront, our 2-acre wooded ridge between Long and Black Ponds provides one of the most private and picturesque locations anywhere on the Cape!
The property includes a gradually descending path down to a private, sandy beach on both Long Pond and Black Pond, where you have use of the house sailboat, pedal boat, kayak, canoe, docks and life jackets. Forget about the hassles of packing your car and lugging chairs, umbrellas and coolers to the beach! The chairs, shade, sun and sand are already in place, and you can just walk up the shady path to the fridge! If you're bringing along an additional boat, just launch it from the Brewster Beach ramp, 300 yards down from our beach (see map), & dock it alongside our Long Pond dock or at our mooring just beyond the dock.
The house was designed as an active/passive solar home and is positioned on the lot so as to reduce solar heating during the summer, while fully exploiting its heat input at the lower solar elevations of wintertime. The interior is very open, light and welcoming, with all windows (Andersen roll-outs) having a view of either Long Pond or Black Pond. There's a wonderful feeling of being outdoors, even when indoors!
Large common rooms & bedrooms with high, vaulted & beamed ceilings, kitchen, sunroom, breakfast area, dining area, comfy loft, and 1&1/2 baths make up the main level of the house. Sliding glass doors lead out onto a large wrap-around deck, positioned 55' above Long Pond, with a retractable awning, tables for dining, and chairs for relaxing & taking in the amazing view. The lower level of the house has a large common room (perfect for kids), that connects to a 2 bedroom and full-bath suite, and which opens out onto a terraced area overlooking Long Pond. Around the corner, is the enclosed, outdoor, hot/cold shower & dressing area, the kids' preferred showering location!
The house has four bedrooms: 2 Queen (1 main, 1 lower), 1 Full (main) and 1 Twin (lower). Additionally, in the the lower level family room, there are 2 twin day beds (set-up as lounging couches).Flat screen TV/DVD players are located in both the lower level family room and the main level living room, as are a wide selection of board games and books (for all ages).
A short 200 yd. stroll down to the road provides you immediate access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking, walking, jogging, roller blading, etc. Once there, check out Seymour Pond's sandy public beach & our neighborhood association's private beach on Long Pond. Or, take a scenic rail trail walk to the Pleasant Lake General Store (circa 1858) for a cool drink or an ice cream. 3 miles N or S will bring you to either Brewster Bay beaches or Harwich Nantucket Sound beaches. A 15-20 minute car drive takes you to the bigger ocean surf of Nauset Beach in Orleans or to the picturesque Chatham Light House Beach.
Given this home's central Cape location, there's something for everyone! Go-carts & trampolines in Harwich Port; golfing; shoping & dining in Harwich/Chatham; movie theatres; antiquing on Rt.6A; deep sea fishing, seal or whale watching out of Harwich Port/Chatham; Harwich Jr.Theatre; mini golfing; Brooks Park family concerts; Cape Cod Baseball League summer games in Harwich/Brewster/Chatham; Bass River Cruises; Dennis/Chatham Playhouses; Brewster Natural History Museum & hikes out to the tidal flats; OR....just hanging out at this wonderful lake house, enjoying the views, taking a leisurely fresh water swim at the private beach or simply recharging your battery!
