Wellfleet house description

Beautiful Mid-Century Modern Cape Cod home designed by Boston architect Zena Nemetz. Wrap around deck, expanse of glass sliding doors with views of tidal inlet, only 300 yard short walk to gorgeous private association beach, and a short drive to ocean beaches and fresh water ponds. Newly renovated, private tennis courts available to only 17 houses as part of the tennis association. Three full bedrooms - two have queen-sized beds and one has two twin beds. All beds have added memory foam mattress tops for luxurious sleeping comfort. Open room with a futon double bed and sitting area. A flat screen TV each with a DVD player for each living room (2), kids have their own! Two full bathrooms plus a private, beautiful,outdoor shower with a gorgeous water view. Kitchen is fully equipped with lots of pots and pans, a stocked spice cabinet, plenty of mugs, wine glasses and silverware. We provide beach chairs, outdoor chairs and beautiful deck furniture. We have water rafts and toys available for use along with kids toys, books, and games.

Relax on the large wrap around deck, watch the wildlife in this private, secluded, quiet piece of paradise. Situated close to end of dead end road with private association bayside tidal beach (warm water). Brand new private association tennis courts (no additional cost to use). Some say the beach is one of the most beautiful they've ever seen.

Great roads for running or walking. You can walk all around the tidal inlet, or put a boat in the water - kayak, canoe, sailboat, motor boat. Friendly neighborhood where owners respect each other's privacy and peace.

Close to town and facilities and yet feels far away.

Please note: There is a spiral staircase which leads downstairs. This is a beautiful wooden staircase built in the 1960's contemporary style. It does not have risers and can be challenging for some dogs, very young children and elderly people.

The house was designed by a renowned architect. The upstairs emphasizes the community living space - with beautiful open design. If you love the outdoors, wildlife, incredible private beach location - this is the house for you!
The upstairs queen bedroom has air- conditioning. The lower level of the house is partially built into the earth, and thus stays cooler. We have many floor fans available for additional comfort. It is a wonderful area for sleeping, and also includes the sitting area with large flat screen TV.

This is a house built in a Scandinavian/European mid-20th century design style. We like our renters to be very happy and to leave very rested and rejuvenated. We do everything we can to ensure you get the vacation you deserve! This is a place of deep serenity and peacefulness, exquisite wild views, and one of the best private tidal beaches in the world! The sunsets from the beach are extraordinary. If you are lucky you will see the full moon rise and the sun set at the same time. This is a spot where you can see that.

National Seashore nearby
With some 27,700 acres of federally-protected undeveloped uplands, bogs, pitch pine forests, sand dunes, and ponds in six towns (Chatham, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown), the Seashore takes up almost half of the town of Wellfleet and about 70 percent of Truro. In addition to six glorious ocean beaches, comprising nearly 40 miles of the finest seashore on the Atlantic coast (see our Beaches chapter), the Cape Cod National Seashore boasts nine hiking trails that meander through varied terrain.

Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary
U.S. Rt. 6, Wellfleet
The Massachusetts Audubon Society operates this 1,000-acre-plus tract of salt marsh, woodland, beach, tidal flats, and moorland. What was once a turnip and asparagus farm is now a haven of self-guided nature trails and superb bird watching, along with a natural history day camp for children and week-long field trips for older folk. Guided walks, canoe cruises through Nauset Marsh, Monomoy cruises and seal and whale-watching trips are regularly sponsored. The excursions are extremely popular and book up fast. The one-and-a-half-mile Goose Pond Trail, part of the 5 miles of trails, offers a look at a diversity of habitats and leads to the shore. It's an excellent place for viewing shore birds, hawks, and herons. If you're still getting to know Mother Nature, borrow or purchase a copy of the 32-page Goose Pond Trail plant identification booklet at the visitor center. It costs $3, but if you go i

                      Year Purchased: 1965

                      About: Our family built this house. We were among the first builders on this road on the Cape and have a long history in the area. It is quite magical and special to us. We come from Boston. Our parents have passed away, sadly. The house is now owned by the adult children who live in NY, New England and New Mexico. We work for nonprofits, the UN and own a bakery in Maine.

                      Why Wellfleet:
                      The scenic beauty, spectacular beach and area. Wonderful town nearby. Outer cape is unusual and a great area. Many renters have said this location is 'the best on the Cape.'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Amazingly quiet and peaceful. Beautiful views and gorgeous beach. You can rest like you haven't in perhaps a long time! And play as well...Our land is proud to be part of the endangered Diamondback Terrapin ecosystem. Each year these turtles nest on the property and are protected by the conservancy with wire covers. Each year there are sightings of the beautiful red foxes too!
