Truro house description

This cozy Cape Cod Bay Home sits on the edge of an 80' dune bluff atop Cornhill in Truro. For over a decade we've shared and rented our family home where you will enjoy a stunning panoramic view in a casual yet well maintained house. Comfy couches in the airy living room with a wide span of windows (facing south & west) provides a peaceful indoor retreat even as the ever changing outdoor view beckons. Bay beach access is next to the house via a zig-zag stairway. Two elevated decks off the main living area, and 2 at ground level, provide open air seating areas to relax and entertain. Dine at sunset with fresh grilled seafood and watch boats, fish and even an occasional whale break the surface of Cape Cod Bay. For a family with young children or teens it is an ideal location to enjoy swimming, beach and low tide strolls, and making fond family memories.

Fresh water kettle ponds are also readily accessible. Provincetown is 15 minutes away where one can dine at many fine restaurants or grab some inexpensive eats, while strolling the town with its many art galleries and shops. Whale Watching trips leave from P-Town harbor. Wellfleet is 15 minutes away and offers similar attractions on a smaller scale. Recreational activities, from back road and off-road bicycling, kayaking, surfing, golfing, and much more can all be had here. Truro and its beaches are a great place to relax with your family and friends.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1985

              About the owner: Starting in the 1950's my family rented one of the summer cottages on Cornhill where we returned every year. So enamored of the outer Cape was I that I bought a home in the woods of Wellfleet in 1982. I'm married with two children, and I've made my living working in the arts and construction fields. Presently I am pursuing my artistic endeavors as a fine art photographer.

              Why the Owner Chose Truro:
              After I purchased my Wellfleet home my mother discovered that this property was for sale about 5 years after it was built. It suited her as it provided the same amazing view of Cape Cod Bay as the rustic Cornhill cottages, but with more modern amenities. She left this house to myself and my sister, and we've been renting it out to help pay for its upkeep. We host our family Thanksgiving dinner here and enjoy it during the off season.
