Falmouth house description

From this light and bright, classic Gambrel home you'll take a short walk down a quiet lane, to a little beach on Great Pond to start your day. Swim, sail, kayak or enjoy the views of the boats going out to the islands.

We've been busy buying all new beds and furnishings for our home. The rooms are spacious, light and bright, gleaming hardwoods. The yard is private with perennial gardens. Private setting, nice yard for play in the back. Ask for additional photos, the place is looking great! We made a game room out of the garage with ping pong and pool, and a nice place to hang out. We have kayaks, some bikes and balls, beach chairs and anything else you'll need.

Cook out on the patio on the gas grill, big picnic table and try your hand at watercolor painting on the small canvases provided. This is our family summer home and we are working hard to help you and your family enjoy it this spring, Summer and Fall!

Keywords: What a great, fun and immaculate home! Sunny, spacious and special! On a Great Pond Peninsula, a quiet lane and a quick walk to Great and Perch Ponds, a small beach, tranquil waters, fishing, sailing, kayaking, boating and ocean access to the islands. Quiet and private, nice level yard, patio and game room in the garage! Year after year, you will love it here! Queen, Full and 4 twin beds.
