Oak Bluffs house description

This 3 bedroom 2 bath Cape style house has an open living-kitchen-dining area, one bedroom and bath on first floor, and 2 bedrooms with skylights separated by a landing and a shared bath with tub on second floor.

Light pours in from every angle/every window and the newly constructed entrance with cathedral ceiling even has three windows in it to maximize light.

The living room has new chairs and couch, a flat screen TV and DVD and CD player, and WIFI is available. Cell phones and smart phones work reliably in this home! Art galore. Never a mildew smell! Recently updated with all appliances new or within a few years. Includes d/w in kitchen and all appliances, as well as w/d in the full basement. All flooring is oak, and bedrooms are carpeted with additional Mexican throw rugs.

A long oyster shell driveway (about 100 feet) between mature trees allows for privacy and peacefulness with the house not visible from the road. On the side of the house is a wood-burning, beautiful sauna - easy access. In summer and spring the property has flowered trees, bushes and flowers. The property is set on a 1/2 acre and is surrounded by mature trees, flowering bushes and backed by a forested area. A wood deck off the kitchen is accessed by sliding glass doors. Very private, peaceful, relaxing setting.

The house has always had one. owner and a few renters in 2013 It was built in the mid-90's with some renovations in 2010 and more in 2012. This is a lovely, well kept, well-loved house that would be perfect for a couple or a small family or good friends. ...Well stocked, art filled, interesting throw rugs. Tidy and easy upkeep.

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: New Yorker fell in love with the vineyard years ago as a visitor and renter.

                          Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
                          Having looked at many homes which had the 3BR, 2BA configuration I needed through a number of years, I fell in love with the long lovely oyster-shell driveway nestled between full trees, especially the gigantic holly tree at the end of the driveway.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          It was the light! the ease and dollhouse quality of what seemed like a perfect 'no project' house for me and for my grown kids. And the piece de resistance was the totally charming stand-alone sauna at a tiny distance from the house.
