Falmouth house description

Charming 1940 renovated Cape one mile from Chapoquoit Beach and 1.5 miles from Old Silver Beach. High ceilings, exposed wood beams, spacious kitchen, master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and en-suite bath, wood-burning fireplace, enclosed backyard. Quick walk to historic country store, cafe, gourmet ice-cream shop and bike path. Quick bike ride or 20-minute walk to Chapoquoit Beach along the bike path and lovely West Falmouth harbor. Our block is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and our front door is featured on the 'Doors of Cape Cod' poster!

Located in West Falmouth Village, the house is a half-block walk to the West Falmouth Market, a 100-year-old country store (great deli, White's bakery, produce from a local farm, made-to-order pizza & sandwiches, wine shop), the Village Cafe (breakfast and lunch, organic coffee and smoothies), Eulinda's gourmet ice-cream shop with indoor and outdoor seating (summer only), a hair salon, day spa, and a 19th-Century church on the National Register of Historic Places. Two blocks to the Shining Sea bike path and harbor. (Easy bike rides to the villages of Falmouth and Woods Hole!) The historic West Falmouth Library is a 10-minute walk down the road. Two-minute drive to the Chapoquoit Grill restaurant, known for great brick-oven pizza.

Chapoquoit and Old Silver beaches are known for great swimming (warm, clear water and gentle waves), white sand and sunsets. Lifeguards and resident-only parking. (Parking stickers are required in July and August through Labor Day.) Renters may buy a weekly parking sticker, good at all Falmouth beaches, for $60).

A 10-minute drive to Main Street, Falmouth Village. A 15-minute drive to Woods Hole for the Martha's Vineyard ferry and seaside restaurants. The parking lot for Martha's Vineyard ferry shuttles is just five minutes down the road! Five-minute drive to horseback riding.

Parents Magazine recently named Falmouth one of the 10 best beach towns for families in the U.S.! Falmouth is the only Preserve America Community, designated by the White House, on Cape Cod.
