Centerville house description

The home sits in an ideal location, allowing a walk to Craigville Beach (one of the largest on this side of the Cape), the nearby community playground, Centerville library, Penny Candy Store, Four Seas Ice Cream store (provisioner of Caroline Kennedy's rehearsal dinner peach ice cream!) and Our Lady of Victory Church (site of Caroline Kennedy's wedding). Hyannis and historic Sandwich are 20 minutes away, with artistic enclaves of Province town and Truro an hour by car.

The home also sits near river access, with kayak/paddle board rentals available in Hyannis (5 miles away). Cape Cod has numerous Rails to Trails bike paths which wend through towns, marshes and along the ocean/canal-front, providing great access to the quieter more natural aspect of the Cape's tidal ponds and waterways. For those baseball fans unwilling to leave the Cape to see the Red Sox, catch a Cape Cod (Collegiate) Baseball League game in nearby Cotuit; White Sox skipper Jesse Ventura is a former League Hall of Famer. Whale watching, boat rental and a trip to Martha's Vineyard are all an hour away. Local maps and reference books detailing area attractions and vendors await you!

After a busy day, spend time relaxing in the three-season porch or expansive gardens, sitting on a gliding bench under the arbor, or on one of the two patios in the front and rear yards. If personal connections aren't your thing, wifi and cable are also provided :--)

Beach parking pass for restricted town beaches provided during rental.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2014

          About: I grew up spending summers on the Cape a half mile from this home. My parents moved year round to the Cape after I graduated from high school and it has been home ever since, despite the fact that my husband and I live in Illinois! We were married not far from this home, each of our children have been baptized here and our families remain in the area. We have deep roots in this area of the Cape and want to share our love for the area with visitors!

          Why Centerville:
          We have been looking for property in the area for the past 4 years and have looked at well near 30 properties. None have the charm, comfort and proximity of this cottage! I have walked Main Street to Four Seas, the Country Store (when it really sold candy for a penny), the Library (my first library card), Our Lady of Victory Church, Craigville Beach for over 50 years. This cottage provides easy access for families to these lovely amenities and allows a retreat to a quieter time. Once your bags are unpacked and the refrigerator stocked, the fun begins!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The cottage has 5 bedrooms: First floor - master with king bed and en suite bathroom and an additional bedroom (queen bed) with full first floor bath off the living room Second floor - three bedrooms of 1 twin, 2 twins and a queen with daybed. Full bathroom. Organized to facilitate shared vacations among families or generations, there's room for everyone to have a great night's sleep and then to enjoy one another on one of three porches/decks which round out the property. 3 Full baths, and an outdoor shower to catch all that sand before you come indoors.
