Property description

Beautiful and unspoiled, this property is part of a prestigious, 100 year old community on a peninsula reaching out into Buzzard’s Bay. Our large vacation home on 2.1 acres is surrounded by 30 acres of wooded reservation lands, the quiet occasionally broken by a fog horn from the bay. Magical paths through forest lead to private beach, sailing and tennis courts. The house includes 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, living room (16'x25'), dining room, kitchen, great room (24'x28') with cathedral ceiling, and screened porch (12'x25'). The house is equipped with most amenities including wireless internet and cable service for 2 LCD TV's. Both the addition and main house have sound systems in good working order. The main kitchen is fully equipped and a 2nd refrigerator is steps away in the mudroom. The Great Room in the addition has its own kitchenette. Outside is a sunny and ample back yard with a variety of playthings for children of all ages, as well as both a patio, an outdoor shower, and both a charcoal grill and propane grill. Beyond the volleyball area is a waterproof and bug-proof tree house with a sleeping loft. It is a perfect setting for an extended family gathering.

Our property is a member of the Wings Neck Trust community, consisting of a few dozen families on the outer 1/3 of Wings Neck. Trust members and guests have access to the trust tennis courts and 2 private beaches. The main beach at the cove includes swimming areas and a tidal pond full of tiny sea creatures (adored by young children). Small water craft (kayaks, sailfish) can be launched from and stored on racks at the beach. Two miles away is a landing for larger boats which can be anchored in the cove. Quiet local roads are ideal for biking, jogging and walking. Children can be signed up for activities associated with the local sailing club.

Less than 10 minutes away are larger public beaches, golf courses, boat rentals, theatres, a grocery store, and fine restaurants. Five miles away is the head of the Falmouth bike path, which is the newest and possibly the most beautiful bike path on Cape Cod. It connects to the Shining Sea bike path, leading all the way into Woods Hole. Six miles north are the bike paths lining the Cape Cod Canal. Falmouth, Woods Hole and ferry boats to the Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are 20 minutes away.

Our property is perfect for extended families seeking tons of summer fun but also privacy, comfort and lots of space at the home base. A vacation on this property is the ideal way to relax and enjoy the best of Cape Cod without the din of crowds and traffic.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1966

About the owner: I came to Massachusetts from the Midwest in 1972 to attend college, and I've lived here ever since. While I have an excess of higher education, I have always liked physical activities, especially building / renovating houses, competitive racquet sports, hiking through mountains, biking, and shell-fishing. I enjoy music of all kinds and have hundreds of albums of jazz, soft rock, folk, musicals and classical music. I sing in a Chorale and play a little bit of piano and guitar. Chess was once a passion but these days I prefer bridge and scrabble. Our family believes in the equality of all people, in that all people have a unique story, and all people feel and care equally. I value education but I think both education and intelligence are multi-faceted, having a little to do with what one can learn within the four walls of an educational institution, and a lot more to do with the persistent application of our abilities to the world around us. Our friends and guests are bright and wonderful people, and very diverse in their educational backgrounds and vocations. I like to think that the common ground is that all love to have fun without compromising the happiness of others. What I love more than anything is a fun gathering of good friends, the laugher of my children, and the embrace of loved ones.

Why the Owner Chose Pocasset:
My memories of Cape Cod go back to my earliest childhood, as my parents brought our family to the Cape every summer. We first rented a property on Wings Neck in the summer of 1961. My parents purchased land on Wings Neck in 1966 and built our home there. Technically I became the owner of the property in 2013 after my father passed away, but to me it is just the continuation of the property ownership by our family. I identify strongly with the history of this property. It has been a place of joy for hundreds and hundreds of people.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property, like the fabled property of the book, 'The Big House' just 300 yards away, has been the scene of countless special occasions. It has been visited by writers, cooks, poets, carpenters, doctors, waitresses, rock & roll legends, teachers, tour guides, gardeners, a (later-in-time) presidential candidate, a bellman, tennis pros, physical therapists, liberals and conservatives, republicans and even more democrats and political others, Phd's and high school dropouts, young and old, theists and atheists, in short, people from every walk of life, and all shared happiness at this property. The spaciousness, beauty and privacy of this property beckon merriment and good will among all who come here.
