West Falmouth estate description

This centrally located home is ideal for a luxurious memorable vacation.

The Frederick William House of Falmouth is the main house on the estate. A small guest cottage also sits on property but is not featured in this listing. It sleeps 6, if your party size is over 10, you may also rent the cottage. Call to check availability. The estate is located directly on the Shining Sea Bike Path between Sippewissett and Falmouth Village, truly a bicyclists paradise and a stones throw away from the Steamship Authority. Bikes are available for your convenience. Stay in this beautifully decorated home and enjoy your time away in luxury. Each fabulously furnished bedroom has it's own private bath. A large gas fireplace heats the master bedroom on cold winter nights, and a wood burning fireplace adorns the common area. The cozy living room is close to a full modern kitchen with a joining dinning room. Barbeque on the slate patio off the kitchen with a gas grill for all your summer cookouts after a great day at the beach. Walk to the fresh water Pond, Grews Pond, across the street with a lovely beach and playground. The property is close to Spohr Gardens famous for their breathtaking Daffodil Days. Whale watching tours, restaurants, pubs, trails in the woods, biking, hiking, skating, boating, and more are all walking distance.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.

              Why the Owner Chose West Falmouth:
              Frederick William House has been in my family for nearly a century. We enjoy sharing this magical spot with others. The best memories are made with family.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              If you want to 'get there' Frederick William House' is located in an deal spot for the active vacationer who wants to antique downtown, bike, or take in our picturesque landscapes. Easy drives to historic points of interest, walk to breakfast across the street to enjoy the best Irish Eggs Benedict you have ever had. Location, location, location. Come visit the birthplace of 'America the Beautiful' written by Katherine Lee Bates, and visit her child hood home. Take a trolly tour, see Nobska Light House in Woods Hole, still occupied and operated by the Coast Guard Chief. Take in every season, the colors of fall, the impressive frozen ponds in winter, the yellow bursts of color in spring, and the bluest, quiet lapping waves in summer. Cook out, enjoy your family, ferry to the islands, there is so much to do and see here!
