Other Amenities

  • The house is not easily accessible for people who cannot manage a flight of stairs. House sits on a sand dune up on large posts. We renovated this house in June 2011. We added a second story, replaced the kitchen and bathroom downstairs and added a bathroom upstairs. The house has central heat, and air-conditioning upstairs. There are beautiful views in all directions around the house. The ocean is on one side and a large salt marsh is on the other. The upstairs is completely open by design to enhance the ability to see all views without obstruction. We did sacrifice some privacy to achieve this other purpose so it is something for you to consider if you want to stay here. The downstairs bedroom is completely private....moreless

The town of Sandwich is a quaint, authentic, New England town originally established a few years after the landing of the Mayflower. It has retained most of that character. Downtown has the oldest house on Cape Cod, restored, and accepts visitors. There is also a tea house, working grist mill, the famous Sandwich Glass Museum and the Daniel Webster Inn, a wonderful place for breakfast. Sandwich has a movie theatre, access to the Cape Cod Canal bike path, large grocery store, hardware store and other shops. It is a 20 minute drive from Hyannis and an hour to Province Town.

Other Activities: The house is situated on a private beach. If you walk on that beach for less than a mile you will come to a bird sanctuary and a wonderful view of the well known Sandwich boardwalk. The large salt marsh on the other side of the house is fed by the creek opening at the end of this walk. People fish here all the time and watch the large ships go in and out of the Cape Cod Canal.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1920

About the owner: I am a descendent of one of the founding families of Sandwich. Sandwich staged a re-enactment of the 1600s in the historic village and my daughter and I joined the fun pictured here with an actress portraying my ancestor Deborah Wing who is on the original list of founding families and the only female head of household. My grandparents had the original beach house built on land that was in the family. At that time there was no running water or electricity in the house. We had a pump at the sink and an outhouse when I was a child. Part of the outhouse still stands near the road and used as a shed now. I am very active in the community and a strong advocate for beach replenishment and historic preservation.

Why the Owner Chose East Sandwich, Sandwich, MA, USA:
The property certainly has been modified over the years and is now a modern home while retaining much of the character of old. The fir floors in the center of the house are the original floors of the cottage and after sanding and polishing are still lovely. The rest of the house is basically new as of 2011. I spend time myself there in the winter and enjoy the solitude, wildlife, and open skies.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is situated on Springhill Beach, a private beach close to the Cape Cod canal. You can walk down the beach towards the canal for about a half mile and pass all the homes on this beach and enter into the undeveloped salt marsh of the town. You will have to turn around at the Old Harbor inlet where you will see the well-known boardwalk that crosses over the salt marsh open to the public. The quaint downtown Main street of Sandwich is about 3 miles from the house with easy access to the mid-cape highway to takes you into Boston about 60 miles north of Cape Cod. On week-ends there is train service from Hyannis (20 minute drive) to Boston and back. We are hoping that soon that train will stop at the Sandwich train station. The train travels over the canal in Bourne on its way to Boston. Cape cod is a vibrant summer community as a whole with lots to do and see in easy reach from the beach house.
