Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I are long-time residents of Wellfleet. We are both university faculty. I am also an artist and enjoy being surrounded by the beauty of the outer Cape-- and by artists and galleries. We just bought this house this past summer. For many years, we rented our previous Wellfleet home to visitors.

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet:
This property is in town and doesn't require crossing Route 6 to get to town, to ocean and bay beaches and ponds. Also, the center of town is a 5-minute walk from our quiet lane. We are off Briar Lane, and the house is secluded. The view out the bedroom window is breathtaking. There is a meadow and a wet land beyond that. You can watch the sun set from the window. There is a very private patio out the back door of the living room. Simple but beautiful furnishings and original artwork.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is an ideal place for a writer, and artist that needs a quiet and secluded place. Ideal for a couple--and has a queen-size futon for child/children and guests.
