Wareham farmhouse description

You'll drive up Lydia's Island Road to our much-loved cottage, Presho Farm, at the crest of a hill on five acres overlooking its private beach on Onset Bay. We've added a lot of modern conveniences, and have worked to retain the charm of the original 80+ year old house. People are always surprised to find our little gem off the beaten path.

The house has a large sun room with a view of the water as you enter - our favorite spot to relax! The kitchen has a stacked washer/dryer, microwave, and a dishwasher that is rolled into place to operate. The enclosed sleeping porch is entered off the kitchen; it has a twin bed at one end, and a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full size bed below at the other end. There is a half bath downstairs off the kitchen.

The living room has a flat screen TV with DVD player and a small selection of DVD's. There is WIFI and basic cable in the house (access code will be provided with the instructions left with your welcome basket). Please note that from November to April the cable and internet are suspended unless special arrangements are made.

Upstairs are a full bath, the master bedroom with queen size bed, and a second bedroom with two twin beds.

Behind the house are an enclosed outdoor shower, a gas grill and a picnic table with four benches. The large yard is perfect for games. Across the road is a hammock with a view of the beach.

The beach is great for swimming, searching for shells, and just relaxing. If you enjoy walking or biking, you can explore the nearby Great Neck Wildlife Santuary. A public golf course is less than a mile away. You can catch a baseball game with the Wareham Gatemen, part of the Cape Cod League. Wareham is perfectly located to allow day trips to Boston, Newport, or Cape Cod. Take the kids to see Plymouth Rock & Plimoth Plantation. We like to stop on the way home at Kyler's in New Bedford for a supply of fresh-caught seafood to hold us over the winter months.

Our family has loved Lydia's Island for more than 70 years. We know you'll love it, too!

                      Year Purchased: 1970

                      About: We've always been a pretty footloose family, moving and traveling where jobs and our hearts took us. Presho Farm is the place we've always come home to. My sister now lives in Sandwich, and regularly cruises over to Wareham with her husband, an accomplished sailor. The rest of us live in upstate New York. We've loved seeing the next generation continue the family tradition of reuniting in our favorite place.

                      Why Wareham:
                      Dad used to visit with his best friend's family on Lydia's Island Road as a young boy, and grew to love the area. When he had his own family, he shared it with us. He and Mom were happy when Presho Farm became available.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      There's nothing quite like waking early and walking down to the private beach with a fresh cup of coffee to look out across the water and smell the salt air. In the evenings, we like to boil some lobster, open a bottle of wine, and sit in the glassed-in porch with friends. There are wonderful wooded and beach paths in easy walking distance. Across the bay is the bustle of Onset village, with fresh air concerts, ice cream, and fried clams.
