Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We lived in this house for ten years before we moved to the Boston area. My kids and I still spend a lot of time at this house, and we love going back to Falmouth. We like to go for runs along the beach, go bike rides along the Shining Sea bike path, go canoeing, swim in the ocean, walk to downtown for ice cream, and play in the yard.

Why the Owner Chose Falmouth:
We chose this house because we can walk to everything--beaches; downtown; the bike path; open space preserves. The spacious, shady yard is perfect for the kids to run around; street is very quiet; the neighborhood is friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is a very peaceful and pleasant place. We walk everywhere, and rarely need to drive. We bike to the beach; we walk to downtown; cool off in the outdoor shower after swimming; sit outside in the shady yard.
