Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: After having lived in Manhattan for many years & spent many summers on the Outer Cape, we recently relocated to the Cape & to Westchester County NY. This house is where we now spend most of our time, year-round, when it is not otherwise rented.

Why Eastham:
We were originally looking in Orleans because it is such a vibrant year-round community. This property, while technically in Eastham, is just a few hundred feet from the Orleans border and gives us all the advantages of being within walking distance of every possible 'urban' amenity. (There is even a Staples nearby !)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Since we wanted to be able to spend considerable time on the Cape in ALL seasons, we fell in love with this house because it gives the feel of being out-of-doors, yet cozy and protected, even in the worst of weather. (We spent both of this past year's big winter storms here, and actually enjoyed them !) When the house was built in 1982 it was initially a fairly typical 'Cape Cod cottage' -- But subsequent owners had modified it considerably, opening up the floor plan and adding numerous windows throughout, + adding a large cathedral-ceiling family room at the east end of the house. This room makes the house especially great for family groups, since it can be closed off for separate activiites and/or 'quiet space' when needed !
