Property description

Enjoy breathtaking oceanviews from every room in this charming and historic home. A short walk down the path to one of the most beautiful private Beaches on Cape Cod, you're also right across the street from incredible hiking trails through the National Seashore Park. Nestled among the scrub pines and rose bushes, the house sits high on the dunes overlooking the ocean. The house consists of a master bedroom with queen-size bed, two upstairs bedrooms with a total of three single beds, one queen bed, one full bath (downstairs), new half bath upstairs, full kitchen, living room, sun room (with expansive 180% ocean views), large deck, enclosed outdoor shower, fully enclosed back deck, and lovely yard with picnic area - all with sweeping views. Wake up to the sun rising over the ocean, spend the day boogie boarding, surfing and relaxing on the beach, watch whales from the deck as you enjoy evening drinks, then let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep!

Wake up to the sunrise over the water and have dinner watching the sunset over the forest! Watch whales breaching from the deck as you eat and let the sound of the waves put you to sleep! Ride a bike to the Wellfleet General store or PB Boulangerie to get fresh baked goods and produce, then work of those calories boogie boarding, surfing or hiking! Have an afternoon massage on the private deck overlooking the ocean or just take a nap on the beach! And a short hike through the woods takes you to one of Wellfleet's famous fresh water kettle ponds for a refreshing dip before dinner!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am an engineer who simply adores the ocean and anything nautical. This home exemplifies what I love: a simple, quiet existence with a view of the sea. Whether it's a sunny summer day, or a raging Nor'easter, this is where I want to be.

Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
I intend to retire in this house and, until I can afford that, I'm renting it out so that others can enjoy this historic seaside cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cottage was first built in 1905 by Captain Lorenzo Baker, just to the south at the site of what became the Marconi wireless experiments, and was moved here a few months later, becoming the first home on Ocean View Drive. This little cottage has seen a lot over the years. It is located overlooking a hollow to the sea, and the panoramic view of the ocean is breathtaking. One can hear and see the shore break, as well as whales playing as they migrate. At night the quiet of the woods is calming, and starry nights are serene. This location is very special.
