Wellfleet house description

This fully restored antique home (with central A/C) dates from the 1800s, and offers privacy in a great location...on a historic country lane, right in Wellfleet Center. Restaurants, galleries and cultural events are steps from your doorstep. Mayo Beach and the Pier are within walking distance. Ocean, bay and pond are all a few minute's drive on back roads...avoid Route 6 traffic hassles! The house has central A/C, yet stays cool with breezes off the bay.

The location is close to fun activities for all ages. Most of Wellfleet’s best restaurants, and cultural events, are an easy walk away. Kids love to walk into town…or the Pier, skatepark, basketball court, ice cream at Mac’s!

The open layout is perfect for large groups and several generations. Multiple areas for TV watching, lounging and many entrances/exits make it easy for lots of people to spread out. Or have privacy!

The living room’s overstuffed sofas and armchairs comfortably seat 12. The dining room with 1700s ship’s beams seats 12 around a big farm table. The sunroom with big flat screen TV has a useful, extra dining area. The large, private deck has plenty of room for great outdoor meals.

Kids enjoy a big, dorm style bedroom on the ground floor with large TV and xbox, sleeps three. An adjoining bedroom has a Queen bed, good for parents of small kids or a teenager. The dorm bedroom opens onto the grassy, sprawling lawn…inviting kids to run outdoors. An additional Queen bedroom on this level offers privacy and french doors to the outdoor patio and shower. The oversize bath with luxurious, jetted walk in shower on this level is shared.

For adults, on the top floor there are two large master bedrooms (Queen beds) each with private bath. A hallway separates them. A full floor of living space separate the master bedrooms from the ground floor bedrooms---offering privacy for multi-generation or two family groups.

Amenities include:central A/C, WiFi, xBox, two large TVs. Premium cable. Washer/dryer. Outdoor shower. Charcoal grill. Fully equipped cook’s kitchen.

              Location

              Wellfleet has a rich array of fun activities (so many within walking distance of the house!) Live theatre at Baker's Field. Concerts at Preservation Hall. Prize-winning poets and authors at the Congregational Church. Or live music and half-price oyster happy hours at the Pearl! Wellfleet's ocean beaches are world famous, and not to be missed. Kids gravitate towards Wellfleet's numerous, clear kettle ponds. Sports fishing cruises with local captains leave regularly from the Pier. Or take a whale watching cruise in Provincetown, and stroll this memorable Cape Cod town. Golf at tennis at Chequessett Neck Country Club...or take a nature walk in the National Seashore.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My family has lived in Wellfleet since 1972. Drawn by its historic charm, I returned to Wellfleet to live full time, after having resided in New York City and San Francisco.

              Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet:
              Parts of this house date to the 1770s. The main living room and master bedroom were floated over from Billingsgate in the 1880s! The house presented a unique renovation challenge. Guests enjoy the lovely---and loving---restoration job done by local master craftsmen.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Guests comment on the beautiful light, airy interiors of this house. Most rooms have cross breezes, and invite lounging, reading, cooking and hanging out!
