This well-maintained Cape house, situated along the banks of the beautiful Herring River with easy access to Nantucket Sound, is ideal for those seeking a quintessential Cape Cod vacation. The unique private waterfront property, comprised of two lots, is new to the market and has been owned by one Massachusetts family for 60 years. It is particularly suited for those who love the outdoors. Enjoy fishing, boating and kayaking from the private beach and dock. Swim in the warm, clean river water. And don't forget your fishing rods and hand nets if you like blue crabs! South of the Lower County Road Bridge, sailors and boaters can have safe harbor and quick access to Nantucket Sound. The classic Cape sleeps nine, with one bedroom on the first floor and three on the second floor. Its interior features a central living room that opens to a cheerful sunroom offering wonderful water views. The kitchen looks into a formal dining room. Outside, it has an expansive yard for playing and picnicking and an outdoor shower. There is ample parking for house residents and their guests—and even space for your boat trailer, if you have one. The property is in close proximity to Belmont Beach (0.5 miles), Pleasant Road Beach (0.7 miles) and bike trails, in addition to Harwich Port shopping and dining and Dennisport shopping and kids’ activities like mini-golf, bumper boats, batting cage and go-carts.
