Property description

This gorgeous, renovated historic captain's house sits in a pine forest in the middle of the Fox Island Conservation area, has glorious salt marsh/water views, and is a 5 minute drive to Wellfleet beaches and fresh water ponds.

The house has a newly renovated eat-in kitchen wing with french doors leading to a deck looking out on pine forest. Kitchen seats 8 and has a walk-in pantry. In the main captain's house there is a large living room, separate study/library, and a central sitting room.

Upstairs are three bedrooms: a master with a queen-sized bed; a bedroom with a large double bed; and a bedroom with a single bed, and a large full bathroom. Downstairs is one bedroom with a single bed and full private bathroom. House has Internet and cable. Watch the sunset while you use the outdoor hot/cold shower!

This house is perfect for a family who wants to immerse themselves in nature, hike on conservation trails through woods and along the marsh, gaze at the incredible bird life, and have total peace and silence. The house is beautifully decorated by the artist/owner. 5 minute drive to downtown Wellfleet.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
This property has been in our family for 75 years since my grandparents, artists and writers, moved to Wellfleet in the 1930s. The house is filled with a sense of beauty and history. The house was built in 1800 by a Wellfleet sea captain who rowed his boat ashore to reach the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The quiet, soft breezes and intense light are remarkable. The evening light fills the house with an orange glow. The house is uniquely situated in the Fox Island Conservation Park. The area is teaming with birds and wildlife, perfect for nature lovers. Conservation trails can be reached within feet by walking out the front door.
