Yarmouth Port house description
This has to be one of the top ten views on Cape Cod! The view covers a beautiful winding estuary, striking sand dunes, Sandy Neck Lighthouse, Barnstable Harbor, and miles beyond! The feeling is a combination of the awe of nature and a special feeling of peacefulness.
The house has been renovated inside and out. The new multi level deck system has stainless steel cable rails that showcase the signature view. Inside, the house is spacious, with high ceilings and attractive furnishings.
The property also overlooks the Gray's Beach boardwalk. The boardwalk allows people to walk out into the marsh and get a better view of the bay. Our house is privately situated , nestled on a short dirt lane the ends at the property. There are three structures on our point of land, two houses and a cottage, all of which are surrounded by over 300 acres of conservation land. The setting is rural, with wildlife and nature dominating the scene. We have a very close view of the osprey nest and there are two additional osprey nests in the woods behind our property. It's hard to capture the feeling in words or a photo, but this place is special. The view goes for 10-20 miles and covers 270 degrees of you line of site. The first level of view is the salt marsh with the winding estuary, the second level is Cape Cod bay and the sand dunes, and the third level is of Barnstable Harbor and the Sandy Neck lighthouse.
There are three decks, all at different levels. The upper deck, off the loft bedroom, captures the best view, showcasing the birds in flight, swooping and diving. There is a small army of cottontail rabbits. The sunsets here are well known as Cape Cod's 'Sunset Alley'. The minute you get here, you'll know that you're on vacation. For many guests it is a 'destination house' and much of their vacation time is spent at the property or at Gray's Beach.
The new Barnstable airport is just 15 minutes away and the Nantucket ferry terminal is also just 15 minutes away.
We are a mile and a half north of historic Route 6A. Cape Cod playhouse is 15 minutes away, 5 star restaurants are within the same distance. Route 6A is well known for antique shops, clam shacks and art galleries. The quaint village of Yarmouth Port has excellent examples of 19th century homes lining Route 6A and showcases classic New England villages along it's scenic drive.
Bedroom #1 is located on the mezzanine level and is the largest bedroom. It has 14' ceilings and a skylight. There is a king sized bed and a single daybed in the room along with a 32' flat screen HDTV. The room is air conditioned and has a large closet. There is original art, carvings and paintings that adorn the room. The walls are freshly painted a very relaxing shade of grey mist.
Bedroom #2 is smaller, but has a great view. There is a queen sized bed ,cathedral ceilings and a skylight, as well as AC. The bay window captures the best bedroom views in the houseand includes a window seat. Well furnished, dresser, small closet and a very firm mattress.
Bedroom #3 is the smallest bedroom, but is perched on the highest level of the house. I call it the master bedroom because is has it's own deck with majestic views of the marsh, bay and beyond. There is a queen sized bed with new Laura Ashley pillow top mattress (soft) and a large closet, as well as it's own bath (completely done over). It has its own staircase and privacy.
The kitchen boasts new cabinets, its own breakfast bar and a wonderful breakfast nook overlooking the view. It’s accented by a beautiful white Villory and Boch porcelain sink. Appliances include dishwasher, electric range, cabinet style refrigerator and countertop microwave.
The main bath on the mezzanine level has a tub/shower, sink and toilet accented with a glass vessel sink.
The living room has a floor to ceiling stone fireplace that rises 16' and is the focal point of the interior. The living area has new leather furniture and a new 42' HDTV with a Blu-ray DVD player.
Experienced Cape Cod travelers know this area as Gray's Beach. We are north of Route 6A and are located just 18 minutes over the Sagamore Bridge. The boat ramp is 2 minutes walking distance and Gray's Beach is the same. The beach is very safe for young children, shallow water and no rip tides. There is a play area for children with swings and there are walking trails everywhere.
It's a place to find yourself again and let the natural flow of life wash the stresses of modern day living away. You'll know the minute that you get here, you can feel it. Even though this property is close to civilization, there is a remote feel about it. The yard is nice and clean, but very natural, spacious and welcoming. It's an extremely private setting.
I'm also the builder and manager of this property. You can enter Maritime Properties Cape Cod in your search engine to speak to me directly either by phone or email. Thanks for considering my home for your Cape Cod vacation.

The property is about 100 yards from the Town managed Beach area and boat launch. It's easy to put in a small boat, kayak or canoe. Large power boats are not able to use the launch, the water depth is too shallow. There are estuaries that go for miles and there is access to private beach areas. In addition, there is a large parking area and picnic tables and benches available, restrooms and a playground for small children. There are miles of walking trails in and around the salt marsh.
Travelling north and south on route 6A, you feel taken back in time to turn of the century captain's homes, large structures with wrap around porches and detailed gable trim. Art, books, antiques or fried clams, it's all available on 6A.
We are also just 15 minutes from Hyannis Harbor and the ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard and the newly renovated airport is also just 15 minutes away. Day trips to Chatham or Provincetown are between 30 and one hour one way.
Plus we are just 20 minutes to the Sagamore Bridge, very helpful in the summertime.
About: I've been in real estate and building for the last 30 years and we've done quite a bit to enhance this beautiful property. New furniture and art are changed and added every year to create a wonderful vacation environment. Staff is always close by to help with any concerns.
Why Yarmouth Port:
There is a quiet solitude here that is both pleasant and relaxing. We are one of three structures that are surrounded by 300 acres of conservation land. It kind of feels like you are on the edge of the world, looking out over an expansive view with no end. It is a place you should visit at least once. The structure has architectural features in a very interesting multilevel floor plan, the privacy of a conservation area and the awe inspiring feeling of nature in one property. All of the interior colors were tested and designed to capture the light changes here as the day moves on. It is north of Route 6A, very desirable, close to: whale watches, charter boat fishing, ferries to Nantucket, antique shoppes, The Cape Cod Playhouse, clam shacks, art studios, glass blowing....and grocery shopping is just 10 minutes away, a luxury on Cape Cod. We are located in the charming village of Yarmouth Port, home to many historic buildings (tours available) and to the famous Inaho restaurant. There are five golf courses within 20 minutes. Guests can rent a kayak and have it put in the water at Gray's Beach, a three minute walk. There are miles of estuaries for paddling. Gray's Beach park has 2 pavilions, bathrooms, a playground for kids and a field for whiffle ball. There are about 5 miles of walking trails right out the back door of your home that wind over bridges with views of the marsh and the bay. Boats can be put in a Gray's Beach landing and guests can motor to private places with sand and water. It's quite the spot.
