Modern home on 3.2 acres of beautiful wooded property that will get you in vacation mood the moment you drive in on a long winding driveway to get to the waterfront home situated on the Lower Mill Pond. Serene and very private! And the mid-Cape location is such that you will be avoiding the worst on-Cape traffic to get there. The perfect setting for active lifestyle or peaceful contemplation complete with high-quality furniture and amenities. Swim in the pond or kayak in the provided 2 adult and 2 kids' kayaks and a canoe or the beach is a 1.5 mile bike ride from provided 2 adult, a tag-alone bike and 2 kids bicycles. After a day at the beach or the pond, come back to play pool or ping-pong in the basement or watch a movie on WiFi-connected large flat screen TV. Whether you want to dine in top Zagat rated restaurants, grab gourmet sandwiches or visit a seafood shack, buy some beer/wine, take horse-riding lessons or hike in the 900 acre wilderness, you will enjoy the convenience of having amazing places between 3 to 10 minutes away from what is otherwise your own private sanctuary! When you stay in our home, you will notice the care with which we have selected everything from dishes to designer fixtures to the Restoration Hardware lounging couch in the sun-room that offers amazing vistas in the mornings and beautiful sunsets in the evenings. Beautiful sun-room is also connected to a deck where you can sip the perfect cup of coffee brewed from freshly ground coffee in the morning or grill in the evening. There is also a covered porch that comes in handy if rain must keep you away from the pond or the beach. Although we have provided free high speed WiFi and an office complete with desk and printer for your use, this is one place you will want to be completely unplugged. Between 3 bedrooms and a beautiful large side room (with 3 Frontgate queen airbeds), the home can easily accommodate 8 guests. Open design with no clutter and high ceilings never make you feel claustrophobic and you can find a place if you want to have a space for yourself for a little while. Master Bedroom is on the ground floor with a small desk and chair and is attached to a full bath that can also be accessed from the entryway. Upstairs has two bedrooms and a full bath. And then there is an enclosed outdoor shower with running hot water. Large room on the side with bay windows has a game table along with a desk and printer (and 3 Front gate Airbeds with Constant Comfort pumps). Home has central A/C but we hardly find the need to use it as the beautiful breeze from the pond and open surroundings keeps the home at just the right temperature. The living room, sun room, the large side-room also have extremely quiet fans. Kitchen is well-furnished with quality appliances, dishes and utensils. We are providing 4 (2 adult, 2 kids) bicycles and a tag-along bike, 4 kayaks (2 adult, 2 kids) with 4 life-vests and a Canoe for your enjoyment but of course we expect you to be responsible for your own safety. Pond is connected to (not seen in maps) two other ponds offering several hundred acres of kayaking. Or you and kids can choose to swim in the pond that is famous for its herring population. Linens, towels, beach towels, high quality beach umbrella and chairs are all provided for guest convenience. We would love to welcome you to our summer home and have an amazing unforgettable vacation!

Property is located centrally on Cape Cod. Whilst you will enjoy many activities without the need to get off the property, getting to many attractions, famous restaurants or shacks is far easier than if you were in the Truro/Provincetown area to the North or Hyannis to the South East. The nearest Brewster beach - the Paines Creek beach - is just 1.5 miles (about 5 min driving) away and is one of the best beaches for kids. With central and convenient location, getting to other beaches on the bay or to the east or south is much easier than otherwise. The famous Cape Cod Museum of Natural history and the 900+ acre Punkhorn reservation (hiking) or take horse-riding or sailing lessons, play golf on public but fantastic 18-hole golf course, play on tennis courts and or get to the bike trail- it is all within 5 minutes driving distance of the property . Whether you have a foodie, a beach lover, water sports lover or nature lover in the family, there are plenty of places that will keep everyone happy and in their best of the moods for a fabulous vacation.
As for necessities - large and gourmet grocery stores, cinema or even hardware store are also within 6 miles drive.
Despite having everything accessible, you can very well choose to seclude yourself on our very private waterfront house that's set on 3.2 beautiful wooded acres and 500ft+ from the main paved road.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We have been in the Boston area for 20 years and, despite the unpredictable weather, love it! Everything - educational institutions, culture, multi-ethnicity, energy and, of course, the Cape. We welcome you to be a, albeit fleeting, part of our journey by being our guests at our home.
