The house has 6 bedrooms and can sleep 11 comfortably. There's 2.5 baths and an outdoor shower for post-beach cleanup. The full kitchen has all the necessary amenities for cooking, including flattop stove, oven, microwave, toaster and full fridge and freezer.

There are 3 bedrooms on the first floor (Double, Queen & 2 Twins) and 3 bedrooms (King, Double, Twin) on the second floor so there's plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have privacy. There's a sun-filled sun room that's simply perfect for coffee in the morning. A comfy family room with a flatscreen TV and DVD player for lounging after a long day in the sun and fun.

Historic half of the house dates back to mid-1800s gives a window into the past while featuring all the modern amenities of today.

Beautiful Harwich home, near village, downtown Harwich Port, beaches with close access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Harwich is the gateway to the lower and outer cape. Warm, calm Nantucket Sound beaches are a 20 min. walk, 4 min. drive. Big surf, ocean beaches are only a 20 minute drive. Walk to Saquatucket Harbor, have a cocktail on the patio at Brax Landing. Hike and bird watch in the 60 acre Thompson's Field Conservation Area that's only 3 min. from the house. Stroll the more than 600 acres of trails throughout the town. Golf at 2 in-town golf courses, or many more world-renowned courses within 15 min. of the house. Dine on the water at the Wequassett Resort or the Chatham Bars Inn. It's only a 15 min. drive to the shopping and dining of downtown Chatham. Enjoy live music every Thursday during the music strolls through Harwichport. Hop on your bike at the house and in 5 min. bike ride you can connect to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and go all over the Cape. Catch a Harwich Mariners baseball game, part of the Cape Cod Baseball League just up the road at Whitehouse Field. Catch a play at the famous Harwich Junior Theater.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1940

About the owner: Our family has been privileged to own this fantastic property for the last 75 years. It's been passed down from generation to generation and we are so excited to be able to share this special house with more people. Our mom starting coming to this house when she was 12, she's now 78. Pete and Jill grew up spending all summer, every summer at this house. We learned to sail in the waters off Harwich, had our first jobs in Harwich, rode our bikes and modeds up and down Long Road. Jill and Tim were married in the backyard in 2010. Jill and Tim live aboard a sailboat in Boston Harbor. Pete lives and works in Boston. Peggy and Larry live it up on the South Shore of Massachusetts.

Why the Owner Chose Harwich:
This property means a lot to our family as it's been the site of many special memories including backyard weddings, baby showers, family reunions and more. The house has been the convener for our family for the last 75 years and it's comfort and welcoming nature has been a retreat for our entire family for ages. We love Harwich, it's history, it's location, it's community. We think it is the best town on the Cape, far enough 'away' but close enough for an easy drive down.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The backyard could quite possibly be the most peaceful place on the planet for us. The birds, the trees swaying in the breeze, swinging in the hammock, enjoying family and food around the teak table on the patio. The space is welcoming and so incredibly special to our family. Showering in the outdoor shower after a day at the beach is one of life's greatest pleasures. We love how the house can sleep so many people, it's allowed us to host all our loved ones together under one roof and provided for so many wonderful family memories in the house.
