Barnstable farmhouse description

Great news for our repeat and new Guests: after serving last summer as the set for a movie, the house is back on the market for Summer 2014! We're back and better than ever, with new stone patio, stone fire pit, side deck, and professional landscaping.

Situated on an old hilltop farm property set off by stone walls and private woods, right on Historic Old King's Highway (Route 6A), yet set well back from the road. You will enjoy quiet seclusion, yet still be only 10 minutes by car from all that Hyannis has to offer: restaurants, shopping, movies, tourist attractions and the ferry to Nantucket. A paradise for active, outdoor children with a swing set, enormous sandbox, playhouse. Ideal, too, for couples or smaller families who enjoy hearing birdsong in the morning as they sip their morning coffee on the private deck.

There is a large farm kitchen, beautifully restored and equipped, with an adjacent morning room (family board games and crafts included). The large living room with fireplace opens onto a spacious secluded deck. There is a roomy tiled bathroom with tub/shower and farm pedestal sink, and full-sized washer/dryer.

Large master bedroom boasts a king bed plus a cradle for babies up to 6 months at no extra charge. Second bedroom has 2 twin beds, while 3rd bedroom has a comfortable twin-sized bed with trundle plus a cozy built-in child's sleep nook. Beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys on site for your use.

Savor brunch, coffee, ice cream and get your local groceries (including authentic French bread and wine) in popular Barnstable village with its authentic New England appeal, only minutes away. Short drives to major beaches (Craigville, Sandy Neck, Hyannis) as well as Hyannis Whale Watcher cruises (based out of Barnstable's Millway marina), and the Audubon nature preserve at Long Pasture. The perfect launching point to any destination from Sandwich to Wellfleet!

Antiquers beware - there are so many shopping opportunities on Route 6A that you will want to extend a week!


Keywords: Completely remodeled vintage farm house on large lot. Convenient location with easy access to all Lower Cape and Mid-Cape attractions. Free beach pass allows access in season to 15 Barnstable salt- and freshwater beaches!

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About: Miriam, a European-trained architect, and Craig, a U.S. government analyst, live with their young children (1, 6, 8, 8, and 11) in Europe most of the time. For that one summer in three that they can spend in the States, they wanted the best America has to offer: Cape Cod.

              Why Barnstable:
              Though neither of us is originally from New England, we want our children, who don't normally live in the States, to gain a sense of American history and values by living in a place where a lot of that history started: the Pilgrims, after all, first made landfall on Provincetown's 'First Encounter' beach. The significance of America's mix of cultures is brought home to them when they attend the Wampanoag Native American Pow-wow in Mashpee every July. Beyond history, there are the uncountable facets of nature, from the beach to the bogs, and from surf critters to birds. The Cape is not a place that encourages kids to sit in front of a computer or a TV screen all day, but to get out and experience life! When the inevitable rainy day crops up, there is still plenty to do locally and, ranging farther afield, in places like Plimoth Plantation and Boston. These are places that should not be unknown to any American children! Once we had found our diamond-in-the-rough after nearly a year's searching, we spent the entire summer of 2010 remodeling and refurnishing it, as well as re-landscaping the garden, adding flower beds and clearing brush. Why West Barnstable? Though perhaps not as chic as Brewster, Orleans, or Osterville, West Barnstable oozes authenticity. Beyond that, we're close to it all: while the crowds sit in those mid-summer traffic jams on Route 6, we have so much right at our doorstep in Hyannis, plus we can use back roads to take us virtually anywhere else from Mashpee and Sandwich to Brewster, Orleans, and beyond.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              Conveniently located to three major Cape arteries (Mid-Cape Highway Route 6; Old King's Highway - Route 6A; Route 132), our house is nonetheless quiet, private, and peaceful. We within striking distance of all major Lower and Mid-Cape attractions, beaches, plus the 'downtown' amenities of Hyannis. Want to go off Cape for a while? The Nantucket ferries dock only 15 minutes away, while a 35-minute drive puts you in Wood's Hole to catch the Vineyard boats. Whale watching? Millway's 'Hyannis' whale watching boat ties up about 4 miles from us: when your kids see a pod of mother whales and their calves diving under the boat and resurfacing on the other side, they'll talk of nothing else for weeks. Clamming and critter collecting are big draws in Barnstable Harbor at low tide. There are big draws for grown-ups, too, including nightlife in Hyannis and antique places and fine arts & crafts boutiques galore all along 6A. Deep-sea fishing is available from multiple locations, rent a kayak, enjoy the gentle waves along the Bay or the wilder surf of the Atlantic: you can do it all in a single week! As for culinary attractions, the Cape has it all, from the simplest clam & ice cream shacks to world-class cuisine. Local produce (think corn, tomatoes, zucchini, berries, peaches) coupled with local seafood, along with every imaginable item at huge grocery stores like Stop 'n' Shop make dining in a treat, too. If you're a native dry-lander, one single clambake or lobster bisque should change your mind (and your palate) forever. For a big-city night out, Boston is easily accessible by car : park at Quincy or Braintree and take the T to all downtown destinations.
