This beautiful property is located on a peninsula between the ocean (Buzzards Bay) and a large salt marsh wildlife sanctuary. It sits on 1.7 acres in a quiet private association of homes, 1 1/2 hrs from Boston. Enjoy unrestricted views of Buzzards Bay - Cleveland Ledge Lighthouse, Woods Hole, and the Queen Elizabeth Islands. Swim in the surf or read your book on your own private beach. Wander 1/4 mile down the beach to the tidal river which feeds the salt marsh, and float on the tide. Build sand castles on the huge sand bar at low tide. Enjoy meals on your deck watching the waves. Ride your bikes to the Shining Sea bike path, and explore the 11 miles from Woods Hole to North Falmouth. Fish right off the beach, or launch your boat in the nearby harbor and fish in Buzzards Bay. Play tennis in West Falmouth. Eat seafood in the many local restaurants. And most importantly, relax!
