Property description

'Amy's by the Sea' A 10 min walk to miles of ocean beaches/sand dunes, this renovated 1940's Cape-style cottage, located in the National Seashore sits on a 2+ acre wooded lot.
Open floor plan with living and dining area and open to knotty pine ceiling. Bright new kitchen with large A-frame glass overlooking the spacious deck. Surrounded by National Park, Amy's by the Sea is an easy walk to the ocean beach via paved road for bicycles/strollers or via the 'back' trail to the bluffs overlooking the ocean, sand dunes and miles of quiet beauty. The back trail to the ocean also connects to the very rare White CedarTrail preserve and Marconi site.

A 1/2 mi walk in the other direction gives you direct access to the Bicycle Rail Trail and General Store/ Post Office. Avoid Rte 6 traffic by taking Ocean View Drive into town, harbor, or glacier ponds for a swim or kayaking. Cottage is only 1/2 hr drive to Provincetown for nightlife and terrific whale watching.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 'Amy's by-the-Sea' has been in view of our family summer home since 1940 when my grandmother Amy Foote and my grandfather Bill, camped on this property in 1917. It was first built by the Forbes family and in 1984 was sold and then sold again in 2004. Finally, in 2011, my brother and sisters and I got together and bought 'Amy's' which has been a large part of our summer lives for over 60 years.

Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
My siblings and I have been coming to this location since we were young children. Our father had been coming since he was 8 years old and used to watch the German glider pilots fly gliders off of the dunes of Maguire Landing. We were 'hooked' on the area from an early age just like our father was.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We all love the peace, relaxation and nature of the area -- it engergizes us! The air is clean, the birds sing every morning, the berries are in bloom in mid-summer and you can hear the ocean at night. The moon and stars are spectacular and some of us have seen the Northern Lights from the ocean dunes.
