Property description

This classic, cozy Cape Cod gem offers water views, privacy and tranquility. Located at the end of a private road, this lovely shingled Cape overlooks a crystalline, spring-fed lake suitable for swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.
Have your lunch on the stone patio while sunlight twinkles on the lake, or sip a glass of wine in the newly-rebuilt sunroom. Beautiful Old Silver Beach is just minutes away, and when you get back, you can rinse off in the enclosed outdoor hot-and-cold shower.
Five public golf courses are within minutes of the house. A gourmet meal, some fabulous shopping and the latest movies are just down the road at Mashpee Commons or in Falmouth. If you enjoy biking, the Shining Sea Bikeway will take you from Falmouth to Wood's Hole. Golfers will find several courses just minutes away. This adorable house is in a perfect location, combining beauty and privacy with proximity to everything the Cape has to offer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: This adorable home belonged to my husband's parents. Since acquiring it in 2002, we have repainted the entire interior, installed wainscoting in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom, laid a new floor in the kitchen, replaced bathroom linoleum with tile, installed new fixtures in the upstairs bathroom, rebuilt the sunroom, installed a stone patio and walkway, installed an enclosed, hot and cold outdoor shower, upgraded the electrical system, re-shingled, replaced the roof and all windows, repointed the chimney and repaired the garage foundation. In 2012, we put new tile floors in the bathrooms and hardwood on the second floor landing. We are now working on the gardens. We rent the house during the summers to offset some of these costs and to enable us to keep the home in the family. We live north of Boston and have three grown children. Owner is also a real estate sales agent, holding license #009512312 from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and privacy we enjoy here is unmatched. We awake to bird songs in the spring, watch geese and ducks as they glide in over the lake, and enjoy swimming in the lake. We play tennis at nearby Falmouth High School, walk the holly reservation at Ashumet, go antiquing and golfing. Shopping and dining at nearby Mashpee Commons. Our sister and brother-in-law have used the place as a base for enjoying the beach and the many public golf courses nearby.
