About the Property

Sleeps 8 max: Main House - 3br/3.5 ba; Optional Cottage - 1br/1ba

Bright & lovely home on almost 3 acres in Osterville’s coveted “Seapuit” enclave (which fronts on North Bay). A gracious gem amongst very substantial homes & estates. Short walk to Cape's most charming village (Osterville), CC Academy, bright/airy Fitness/Wellness Ctr, wonderful new library, top-rated restaurants, boutiques, & scenic bayfronts. Close to beaches: 7 min bike ride to our own Dowses Beach on Nantucket Sound or East Bay on the backside (calm waters for toddlers). Walk to a freshwater beach at Joshua's Pond. Golf, fishing, biking. Hi-speed wireless access available. Each BR has private bath. Screened porch is wonderful for evening or rainy weather dining, & patio offers more dining & relaxing. Views of sweeping lawns, flowers, beautiful shrubs & trees (professionally landscaped). Best of all, the enjoyment of total privacy & serene nature surrounding our home & the unique Seapuit enclave. Main house: 3 BR/3.5 baths, sleeps 6; plus, Studio Cottage (sleeps 2 on trundle beds) may also be rented as an OPTION (to Main House tenants ONLY). Rates shown do NOT include $500/wk Cottage Option fee. Off-season rates will be quoted, based on dates, length of stay, etc. Please see Guest REVIEWS (all 5-STAR).
* Japanese also spoken
Seapuit enclave is a unique upscale community, hidden just off the Village, with professionals, executives & others enjoying their homes year-round or for summer & weekend retreats. Rental history includes several years where couples/families booked ENTIRE summer seasons for themselves, sometimes repeating. Our guests praise the quiet serenity, privacy, gorgeous surrounding nature, comfort, and amenities. Also, our thoughtfulness & thoroughness in furnishing & accessorizing the house, with its charming decor. They love the convenience of Osterville's robust year-round village, CC Academy, fitness center, easy access to the Mid-Cape highway, island ferries, Provincetown, commercial centers, & other regional attractions in Boston and Newport, RI. .

Car: Necessary

Osterville is Cape Cod's most charming and vibrant community, located between HyannisPort (home of Kennedy family compound) & Cotuit, mid-Cape on Nantucket Sound. A destination village, off the beaten track, without the pass-thru tourist traffic found everywhere else. The Village & marinas have wonderful restaurants for both casual & fine dining. The shops and art galleries are full of beautiful & unique offerings. Our own gorgeous Dowses Beach (5 min drive) on Nantucket Sound is pristine (surf on one side & calm waters on the other). Joshua's Pond (freshwater) is a half-mile away; wonderful for toddlers. Two excellent private golf clubs, plus a public course 3 miles away. Day trips to scenic & colorful Provincetown, Heritage Plantation & Plymouth Rock; ferries to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard Islands. Newport, less than two ours away, with it's famous turn-of-the century mansions, Tennis Hall of Fame. Loads of kids activities all over the Cape.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Cape Cod National Seashore, sand dunes, antiquing, boating, and fishing.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We purchased the property hoping to oneday retire there. However, retirement still eludes us, but we love opportunities to visit off and on in all seasons, every year.

Why the Owner Chose Osterville, Barnstable, MA, USA:
Primarily because of its location in Osterville's woodsy Seapuit enclave, with its unique privacy. Most homes are owner-occupied. Also, because of its close walking proximity to the Cape's most charming Village (terrific restaurants & boutiques), beaches & scenic walks to bayfronts. Easy access by bike or car to our own Dowses Beach or walk to Joshua's Pond. A bonus: Osterville is truly a "destination" village, positioned OFF and AWAY from the main tourist roadways at all other Cape communities, with bumper to bumper traffic, all the way through their village centers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Gracious living, all on one floor in the Main House, with each bedroom having it's own private bath. Also, the added benefit of an adjacent Studio Guest Cottage (available as an option for a fee), with it's own deck, pretty views, and separate entrances, nicely separated from the Main House separated by strategic landscaping.
