Beautiful Ballston Beach Estate features main house, studio, and elevated deck (skybox). Main house, built in 1892, is the quintessential summer home with wood floors, 20' ceilings, an outdoor shower, and 2.5 bathrooms with laundry. Studio cottage (2007) has beautiful furnishings, air conditioning and sleeps 4, 1.5 bathrooms, laundry, and a screened porch. Kitchenette has small appliances, but no oven.
The main level has kitchen, dining room which seats 12, huge living room opening out to the covered porch, then to the open deck. There are four bedrooms off the living room each with two twin beds. The lower level has a separate access with several sets of bunk beds, full bathroom, ping pong table, and areas for card/board games: perfect for kids (or kids at heart!)
Take the path down to the beach or climb the stairs to the 'skybox' for a panoramic view of the beach and valley. Enjoy the sunset with a cocktail on the porch or read a book in the ocean breeze.

Truro is a quaint and quiet Cape Cod town with the busier Wellfleet and Provincetown on either side. You can get to either nearby town in 15 min by car and check out their walkable downtown areas, shops, and restaurants. It is also a short drive to the lighthouse, a must see.
Year Purchased: 1892
About the owner: I grew up mostly in Colorado where I currently reside with my wife and 4 children.
Why the Owner Chose Truro: Be a part of Ballston Beach history! This property has been in the family for over 100 years. My kids grew up coming to the Dune, the same as I did along with my 3 brothers, and my father, and his father and so on, so it holds a special place in our family.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The property itself has changed tremendously over the years, but the rustic charm of the house remains the same and looks almost just as it did when my Grandfather was a kid. You can't beat grilling and watching the sunset on the porch with a cocktail in hand or a large family dinner around the dining room table. We love coming home to this atmosphere after a fun day on the beach to relax, or sometimes we head right back down for a beach bonfire after dinner!
