Truro house description

Antique Cape house in historic Pond Village in North Truro, just a 5-minute walk (0.3 miles) from beautiful Cold Storage beach on the bay side and a 5-minute drive (1.5 miles) from Coast Guard beach - which you can get to without having to get on Rt. 6 - or Head of the Meadow beaches on the ocean side. Longnook beach with its majestic dunes is a 9-minute drive away.

Filled with light and a constant breeze, oozing with charm and character, this 3-bed, 1-bath house sleeps up to 6. Have breakfast in the shade of the grape arbor on the quiet back patio, and at night enjoy your barbecued dinner under the lights! Sit on the breezy front porch and read a book with a glass of wine or play a board game with your family.

The location is ideal – If you wanted to, you could spend your entire time here without getting in the car! Not only are you mere minutes from the bay and ocean, it is a short walk (2-mins) to the Village Café or Salty Market (formerly known as Dutra’s), where you can buy liquor and groceries - and sandwiches when you don’t feel like making your own; the Truro Beach Office, where you pick up your beach sticker; and new Chequessett Chocolate, which has delicious sweets and excellent coffee.

Local favorites Savory Pizza Grill & Sweet Escapes, Box Lunch and Hillside Farms are a short, 3-min. drive away, as are restaurants Terra Luna and Montano’s.

Provincetown and Wellfleet are only 10 minutes by car in either direction! If you want to head to Provincetown for a heady night without having to worry about driving, the Flex shuttle stop is only a 5-minute walk down the road. You can't beat this location!

If you play golf, Highland Links Golf Course, sited by historic Highland Lighthouse, is a 5-minute drive away (also accessible without having to get on Rt. 6). If you're curious about a little bit of Truro history, while you're there you can stop by the Truro Historical Society, which last year featured an exhaustive exhibit on Edward Hopper's life and paintings in Truro, and this year features an exhibit on Milton Wright's Truro paintings (Aug. 17-Sept. 30).

** Pardon our dust!!! **

My wife and I just bought the house this spring and have been busily getting it ready for rental. We've maintained all the character we can while updating it and bringing in modern amenities. The upstairs ceilings are a bit low (6'5') until we cathedral them this fall; vintage wallpaper is peeling in places.

Most of the back yard was excavated for the new septic, so it is dirt and sand until fall when grass is plantable again, and there are small patches where grass is growing back in the front yard. But we've planted hydrangeas and other beautiful things and mulched the rest. Looks great!

HOUSE:

- 2 upstairs bedrooms (1 queen, 1 double)
- 1 downstairs bedroom (bunk beds)
- 1 downstairs bath w/combo tub/shower
- Front porch with vintage ‘50s bamboo sofa, small table & rocking chairs
- Brick patio with seating for up to 8
- Kitchen - w/the typical appliances (fridge, d/w, toaster, microwave, stove/oven, blender, coffee maker, etc.)
- Living room
- Dining room
- Laundry room (washer and brand new Maytag dryer)
- WiFi

- Smoker and charcoal grill for making fish, pulled pork, ribs & chicken

- Two adult-size bikes
- And sometimes a very cute fox is in the backyard. We call him Clarence.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: Rosy grew up in Truro, locally famous as one of the three sisters selling Hawaiian Shave Ice at a roadside stand. She met Jonathan in Brooklyn in 2008, they married in 2012 and felt the call of the Cape until they found their dream house this year.

              Why the Owner Chose Truro:
              We wanted something very old but in good shape that we could update with some modern amenities, customize to our taste and restore to its original beauty.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The wide plank wood floors, the centuries old doors and details, the classic cozy pantry, late night dinners under the grape arbor on the patio, the front porch overlooking the marsh, the sound of toads lulling you to sleep, the majestic mimosa tree welcoming you home.
