Tennis court including basketball hoop; paddle board at Crystal Lake
Year Purchased: 2007
About: We are an American/Swedish family living in Germany and knew instantly that this would be the perfect summer house for us with 3 kids and rotating guests. We loved the antique charm and layout of the house, and of course the tennis court! Kids running in and out of the house, people playing tennis, board games or simply reading in a quiet corner. There's something for everyone in this house!
Why Orleans: We rented in Orleans in 2006 and fell in love with the town. The town is 'Americana' at its best. Traditional main street with excellent shopping, nice library and superb cafes and restaurants. Plus water everywhere- lakes, inlets, bayside, oceanside- all within minutes of each other!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Tennis in the late afternoon, after the beach, then drinks on the patio. The option in early evening for swimming at Crystal Lake while the sun is setting...Sitting on the patio at night, tiki flames aglow and counting the shooting stars....Monday night band concerts at Nauset beach...Sitting on the hill watching the Cape Cod baseball league...spending the day at either Nauset or Skaket beach...
