Eastham house description

The Captain Jonathan Sherman house is a historic Eastham home built in 1768 and having a long and colorful history. There are several paintings of the home in the Eastham library one of which is an oil painted in the early 1800's.
Home is a comfortable 4 bedroom 2 bath (plus outdoor shower) house. There is a large kitchen and separate eat in area adjacent to the kitchen. Adjacent to kitchen is a full bath and next to this is a large den with a 46 inch HDTV. There is an additional TV in a second floor bedroom. There are no Televisions in the living room or dining rooms.
Great garden environment with large very private yard. To one side of the yard is the Nauset marsh and this affords Kayaking access to a tidal stream which accesses the Boat-meadow river and Cape Cod bay. I use the stream often. The Cape Cod Bay beach is several hundred yards away from the house.
We have restored this home these past 10 years and this is a continuing labor. There is a brass plaque attached to the front door frame and this is an award from the Eastham historic commission for restoration activities by our family. The home is currently recommended for placement on the National Historic Register.
The Cupola on the 3rd floor is a wonderful reading room and a great getaway from the lower floors. There are 3 large windows and a view of the marsh. There is also a penciled drawing done by Captain Sherman referring to his painting of the building and dated in June of 1869.
On the first floor is a large bedroom with a queen bed. Second floor has two large bedrooms, one w/a king bed and the other w/a queen and an HD TV. Both have air conditioners. A third bedroom is small w/bunk beds.
