                  Car: Recommended

                  The house is in Harwich Port, near Allen Harbor and The Commodore Inn. The house is on private lane (dead end street with almost no car traffic). Only residents (incl. our tenants) are allowed to use the private lane and stairs to the beach.

                  The house is on a double lot, allowing for greater privacy and space. Street has virtually no traffic (it's dead-end) so it's perfect for bike riding or strolling.

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About: My parents built this house so that they, their children and the grandchildren could spend vacations together.

                  Why Harwich Port:
                  It's the perfect location. There is a wonderful beach, where we have really enjoyed the warm water, splendid sand and views, little - if any - surf, and no sharks. Many other Cape Cod attractions. The house has very spacious rooms, decks and garden, with lots of options for relaxing and dining. Bike trails, restaurants, and other holiday services and attractions are nearby.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Grape and kiwi harvests from the vines on the trellis in the fall. Walk to Allen Harbor and go sailing. Watch the sea from the balcony. Sleep on the balcony under the stars. Privacy because of the double lot and adjacent conservation land (woods).
