North Truro house description

Discover the charm of old Cape Cod! This 1835 house is located beside the truro vineyards and very close to both bay and ocean beaches. There's a bus that goes to Provincetown every half-hour for shopping, nightlife, whale-watching, museums, and more.

The house comprises three bedrooms (each with a full or queen bed), a well-appointed kitchen, two bathrooms, a living-room, a study/library, and a chapel/meditation area. There's a fenced-in yard and garden in front, and a small terrace in back with a gas grill for outdoor cooking. Wifi is included, as is a stacked washer/dryer and a parking place. A notebook filled with maps, brochures, and suggestions for fun activities and restaurants is available for you to peruse.

The house is part of a complex that includes small seasonal cottages, but is separated from them by fencing and has its own dedicated front yard and back terrace; you're hardly aware that they're there.

Its wide floorboards will remind you that this is an old house, but it's a very livable one as well. I've done home exchanges here with people from all over the world, and everyone has remarked on instantly feeling 'at home' at the William Dutton house. I hope that you will, too.

                              About: I'm a writer—novels, plays, poetry, and some business and marketing work. I grew up in Angers (France) and so many of the books you'll see in the library are in French.

                              Why North Truro:
                              I love this house. It was love at first sight. Of course, it's changed quite a lot—I've tried to capture the feel of the time it was built, though with modern conveniences, of course!
