Property description

Gracious modern home with gorgeous water views & huge private beach on 1+acre in Indian Neck Height's exclusive King Phillip area. New central AC & Wi-Fi. Open floor plan Living, Dining, Fireplace and Kitchen areas all fronted with sliding glass doors onto large Deck w/grill. Two BR up, two on lower level with walk-out sliding glass doors (house is built on hill facing the bay). Very welcoming; very private. House has all conveniences (dishwasher, microwave, cable TV/DVD/VCR, laundry) with games, books and toys for evenings and rainy days. Beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys in house (your own linens required). Walk to bay in moments; drive to the four dramatic Wellfleet ocean beaches in about 8 minutes; located close to the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary so there are many lovely birds. Oyster farmers maintain their beds on our beach at low tide; an inexpensive permit lets you gather the escapees - Wellfleet Oysters are valued world-wide for their delicate smoky flavor. Lovely sunsets, sparkling water views of the bay at any hour from the huge front deck.

The Beach: Our lovely and extensive private beach welcomes people of all ages. The bay water is very warm and calm, so high tide is the perfect time for a swim. Children will enjoy playing in the sand and in the shallow salt-water 'river' called 'Sewel's Gutter' which fills and drains with the tides; an odd name, as this inlet is pristine with herons and other larger birds, as well as hundreds of smaller ones. Strong adult swimmers will find themselves hard-pressed to swim even half-way across the large Wellfleet Bay, while pleasure swimmers can enjoy the deeper water closer to shore. Low tide reveals enormous tracts of bay-bottom and the abundant shellfish who live there: oysters, clams, scallops, whelks, snails of all sizes, and of course tiny hermit crabs. Low or in-between tides also offer a lovely opportunity for a seriously long hike: either walk to the Town of Wellfleet right along the bay, or in the other direction, walk the length of Indian Neck Heights and return to the house via King Phillip Rd. More casual beach-combing is available at any time.

The House: Our Wellfleet house is set up to welcome families during rain or shine. Our fireplace can warm you on rainy days while books, drawing supplies, games, and toys offer amusement. We have a small library of tapes and dvd discs as well, and the Wellfleet Library has more (the library also has wifi, and a very large and well - appointed children's room). Even the sunset is lovely on a stormy night! Sunny days of course beckon to the beach, ponds, or ocean; be sure to bring along beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, and a tote with your favorite book and a snack. Cooks will love our modern kitchen with large and small gourmet pots, pans, utensils, and cuisinart; we have many recipe books as well. More serious cooks will want to purchase a non-resident seasonal shellfish license, so they can collect the clams and oysters that litter the beach at low tide. Wellfleet oysters are shipped world-wide, valued for their delicate smoky flavor. Some enjoy them raw (we have special 'opening knives'); others steamed. Several Fishing tours are available from the Town Pier; fresh-caught bluefish is excellent.

The Town of Wellfleet: The Town of Wellfleet offers many different types of events, places to see, and things to do. The Town Pier has fishing, an ice cream shop, and a large playground with a fenced-in skateboard ramp nearby, and basketball courts. You can take a fishing boat out to catch some seriously large fish, or watch whales. Wellfleet is knows for the many art galleries, and there are interesting shops in the town featuring local high-quality pottery and other creations. The Wellfleet Market is a great place for groceries, although if you really want to stock up the large supermarkets in Orleans 10 miles away are worth the drive. There is an historical museum, and a large library with a nice chidren's room and story readings; the library also features well-known authors as guest speakers. And of course, Wellfleet has lots of ponds and ocean beaches, as well as the interesting Marconi Station in Eastham, where the first transatlantic telegraph message was sent. Wellfleet's Chequesset Yacht and Golf Club offers golf; tennis courts nearby.

Beach combing for lovely shells or playing & swimming in the calm bay waters, our large private beach will draw your family everyday at both high and low tides -- be sure to visit the oyster farmers during low tides, tending their oyster beds. Tennis, ocean beaches including LeCount's Hollow and the surfer's WhiteCrest, several large swimming ponds, easy hikes at the Marconi Station and National Seashore, and movies at the Wellfleet Cinema and Drive-In all welcome you. The small Town of Wellfleet is well-known for its galleries, restaurants with live music, and shops, as well as the Wellfleet Oyster Festival in October; we also have a lovely library. Children will enjoy summer programs, while Provincetown's busier attractions including wonderful shops, galleries, and restaurants, are only 25 minutes away. You can deep-sea fish, go whale-watching, and drive along the huge sand dunes. Or, just relax on the deck while you enjoy the everchanging calm & beautiful water view.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: My parents had our summer house built, completed in 1973. It was designed by Charlie Zehnder and Wellfleet has designated its lovely structure to the Wellfleet Modern House Trust. I'm now the house manager, and live near Albany NY where I work as a professor at the College of Saint Rose. I'm an avid shellfish consumer when I'm in Wellfleet, so I can often be found on the flats at low tide. One interesting thing about the Wellfleet tides is how variable they are in their cycles. Sometimes the low tide reveals less of the bay bed, while at other times of the month the low tide seems to reveal literally half the entire bay bottom. During these very low tides I often walk far out into the bay, finding huge whelks and crabs and scallops and oysters far too large (and tough!) to eat. I highly recommend this walk.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Neck Heights, Wellfleet, MA, USA:
Wellfleet is the Pearl of Cape Cod, a calm and visually lovely place to spend some time.
