Wellfleet house description

The perfect location! Nestled in a secluded acre, yet an incredible five minute walk to the center of historic Wellfleet Village. And a ten minute walk to the town harbor, bay beach, fabulous playground, basketball and tennis courts, and skateboarding ramps. Shops, cafes and fine dining, galleries, and the Cape's best library are all in the village.

Our smoke-free home offers quiet and private seclusion; blackberry bushes, roses, and meadows surround the property; watch the birds and bunnies that feast here, too. The sheltered private back yard provides an extensive lawn ideal for children.

Built in 2002, this artist's home boasts beautiful colors, new furnishings, all amenities and conveniences, an outdoor after-swim shower, and an enormous full length old fashioned screened-in porch (with lounge chairs and a large table with seating for ten).

                                  Year Purchased: 2003

                                  About the owner: Drawn to the light, charm, and coastlines of the Outer Cape, and after vacationing with their children in Wellfleet and Truro for two decades, Bob Flack and Fran Forman found their perfect second home in 2003, an easy walk to village, harbor and beaches. Bob is an architect specializing in affordable housing in the Boston area. Fran is an internationally exhibited fine artist, whose work is featured in, among other books, 'Contemporary Cape Cod Artists: People and Places'. Her monograph, 'Escape Artist: The Art of Fran Forman' was published in 2014. (You can see more of her work at www.franforman.com) Their children are now grown and live in different parts of the country, but Bob and Fran enjoy caring for their home and are particularly proud of the gardens they designed and planted, celebrating the many flora of the Outer Cape.
