Property description

This lovely and spacious house on a meadow's edge in Truro is on the boundary of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Equidistant from ocean beaches and Cape Cod Bay in what is unquestionably the Cape's least developed township, the five acre property features a hard-surfaced tennis court and out-the-door access to woodland hiking trails and rural biking paths. Province town with its art galleries, wide range of restaurants, very lively nightlife and access to undeveloped dune lands is seven miles to the north, and the picturesque township of Wellfleet is five miles to the south. Our family, the fifth generation to have ties to the property, lives in Wyoming. We come out every year with enthusiasm to work on the house and look forward to sharing it with others who will enjoy being there as much as we do. Beyond the busy summer weeks, the house and property have been used on a number of occasions as a pleasant and affordable setting for outdoor weddings, as well as at times during the off season for family reunions and other special events.

The house is located at the end of a country lane with a meadow to the east and a hard surfaced tennis court behind the house. A trail on the site of an old dirt track runs back between the meadow and the tennis court into the national seashore. From a point several hundred yards behind the house, one can bike or hike off to the east, south or west on tracks that run many miles through the once glaciated countryside. Informational sheets in the house describe some of the options.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1941

Why the Owner Chose Truro:
In brief, this is a property and a house that has an unusually welcoming and serene ambiance. When first made available to short term renters during the summer, it quickly attracted a dedicated following. Since then, as more and more people know of the house, stays during the off season have also increased.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The meadow below and adjacent to the house is absolutely singular and harkens back to a time when the woodlands of the lower Cape had been stripped away completely for use in homes as firewood. The core of the house was originally the schoolhouse in South Truro (this township three miles distant is now abandoned) and was moved to its current location about 120 years ago.
