Truro house description

Our vacation property is located on a secluded, two-acre lot overlooking Cape Cod National Seashore.

For the most complete information and photos page down to additional links and click on 'Owner's Website'

The 2BR main house, which has been featured in a national magazine and two books, enjoys views of sunsets, and even a peek of Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown from its rooftop deck. The informal 1BR Guest House is just down a short trail from the Main House. This air-conditioned home has a finely crafted hardwood interior and is perfect for a couple, a small family, or as a 'space of our own' for older children. It is available with the Main House or separately.

The Laurel is in one of the most attractive areas in Truro (The Pamet), convenient to Truro center (One mile), Cape Cod Bay (1.3 miles) and the Atlantic Ocean (2.3 miles). Neighboring Provincetown and Wellfleet are packed with shops, galleries, museums, and restaurants. There are water sports, all kinds of fishing, whale-watching opportunities, great biking and hiking trails, and the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast.

Just bring yourself! We supply bed and bath linens, beach chairs, and more. In the main house the kitchen is nicely appointed and fully equipped; there is a full-size washer-dryer, screened porch, whirlpool bath, picnic table, gas and charcoal grills and an outdoor shower with a view. Enjoy quality audio/video system with DVD/CD, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, computers and free long distance VoIP phones in both houses.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: Roy Barnhart, a retired writer/editor and Mary Reinhardt, a Montessori educational consultant

                      Why the Owner Chose Truro:
                      After visiting Cape Cod, specifically the outer Cape, for many years, we jumped at the chance to buy this property, which overlooks Cape Cod National Seashore (and always will).

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Privacy and natural beauty best describe our location. We abut the Cape Cod National Seashore and have a distant view of Provincetown from our rooftop deck. We are only about 1.5 miles from the nearest Bay beach and 2.5 miles from the nearest ocean beach. Less than a mile to a quiet village with grocery/deli, fish store, park and one of the best restaurants on Cape Cod.
