GETTING AROUND CAPE COD
The Cape is shaped like an arm. The part of the arm closest to the mainland is called the 'upper cape' and the end farthest from the mainland is referred to as the 'lower cape' or 'outer cape'. This is admittedly a little counter-intuitive since much of the 'lower cape' is actually north of the 'upper cape'. Remember Cape Cod has been shaped by the ocean on all sides and it’s really just a large sand bar!
'Upper' Cape towns include Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, and Sandwich. 'Mid' Cape towns include Barnstable, Brewster, Dennis, Harwich, and Yarmouth. 'Lower' Cape towns include Chatham, Eastham, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet.
Also in the area are the Islands of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and the Elizabeth Islands including Cuttyhunk.

About the owner: We met on The Cape and have enjoyed living in Wellfleet for over 30 years.
Our interests lie in the arts, architecture, travel, food, hiking, biking, kayaking and the well-being of man and Mother Earth.
Newly 'retreaded', after maintaining a successful ceramic tile and stone business for 35 years, we built FIFTY FIVE with couples in mind.
Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet: The quintessential New England village filled with beauty, life and talents, unpretentiousness and general open-mindedness, Wellfleet is the essence of community. Wellfleet has been the destination for artists and literaries, beachcombers, surfers and nature lovers for generations.
The existence of the Cape Cod National Seashore along with The Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary allows for the preservation of natural beauty and is there for your enjoyment. The many ocean and bay beaches, fresh water ponds, maritime history, galleries, fine restaurants and, in particularly, the shellfish industry and specifically, OYSTERS give Wellfleet a flavor to savor!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Built with ease-of-living in mind, the open floor plan and an entrance on all sides, high ceilings and natural light provide spaciousness. The outdoor patio is an extension of the living space.
Mirrored Master Bedroom Suites and central air conditioning provide maximum comfort.
A short walk into the village, 10' drive to the ocean, or hop on your bicycle and explore!
