About the Property

4BR 1.5BA Sleeps 7

Top of the hill in Falmouth Heights! From the farmers wrap around front porch, it's just a 2 minute walk to the public beach at Falmouth Heights with beautiful views of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Sound - see photo. The turn of the century cottage evokes simple comforts and charm that will take you away from the fast paced world of today.

The first floor has an open layout connecting the living room, dining room, and kitchen with windows throughout. There's also a first floor bedroom with its own, private, side entrance door to the front porch. It's ideal for an elderly person or guest. The vintage dining room table has leaflet inserts so it can be expanded for family dinners. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a half bath. Two rooms have double beds, and one room has a single bed. The back deck has views of Falmouth Harbor and is large enough for family meals of all types. The cottage also has ceiling fans, a private outdoor shower under the back deck, ample parking, and steady ocean breezes!

Walk down the hill behind the cottage to Falmouth Harbor to the family owned neighborhood bike rental shop. Rent a bike for the day or just enjoy walking around the harbor and admiring beautiful yachts. From the front porch, you're just one block to baseball and soccer fields, plus the Casino and British Beer House. These two restaurants offer a choice of either fine dining and/or a pub atmosphere with beautiful views of Nantucket Sound. The athletic fields and the restaurants are all right there on the Heights Beach. Leave your car in the driveway after buying groceries; you can walk everywhere. The Martha's Vineyard ferry is located in Falmouth Harbor; a 10 minute from the cottage. Create adventurous family day trips to MV or Nantucket.

There's also a 5 mile bicycle path with gorgeous water views of Vineyard Sound which begins in Falmouth center and travels 5 miles to the charming village of Woods Hole where there's an aquarium for the kids. Falmouth village has several quaint restaurants, gift shops, and a fantastic library. There are also several excellent public golf courses and a dozen public tennis courts just a few miles away at Falmouth High School.

It's a charming, Victorian era cottage with a private outdoor shower under the back porch, ample parking for several cars, and steady ocean breezes!
