South Wellfleet farmhouse description

Beautiful four bedroom post and beam farmhouse on a private dirt road. This home has been featured in ''Cape and Island Magazine'' for its lush gardens and artful design. Located five minutes from town and ocean beaches with just a short walk down the dirt road to Long Pond. No need to drive! There are many other ponds within walking distance as well. This property has been described as 'magical', 'A fairy-tale place', and 'serene' by past renters and visitors. Professionally landscaped and decorated. Comfortable, charming and clean. Pleasant combination of antiques, furnishings and artwork.

Enter through French doors into the kitchen/dining area with all amenities. Stainless appliances & 6 burner restaurant quality range. The first floor also features a spacious living room, wide pine floors, two bathrooms, one of which has a claw foot tub and outdoor shower, and a master bedroom with its own private patio alongside a Koi pond. Continue upstairs to find three large, lovely bedrooms and the third bathroom.

Biking and hiking trails abound. Step out the door and into the protected woods of Cape Cod's National Seashore and explore winding trails and old dirt roads that will carry you to the ocean or any of the many hidden ponds these woods hold. This property is a gem - you will be delighted!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1991

          About the owner: Born in Ohio, I was drawn to Cape Cod as a side trip to Colorado. I never made it out and have lived here ever since, raising a family, running my own business and being an active member in the community.

          Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
          I bought this property as a wooded lot at the end of a narrow dirt road. Everyone thought I was crazy for doing it- but its one of those who laughs last stories. The house was built by my then husband; a talented craftsman and carpenter, and I have developed, expanded and nurtured the gardens that surround it. Its truly turned into a lovely place.

          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
          The location of this home is one of its greatest features, but the house itself is beautiful thing. Lots of exposed beams and wood, very warm and comfortable - the kind of place you can sit in the kitchen with the breeze blowing through the open French doors and feel like you're almost outside.
