About the Property
3 Bedrooms, Loft, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10
This peaceful home sits on a wide inlet and overlooks Washburn Island-a beautiful 330 acre undeveloped island that is part of the Waqouit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
The house has a wrap-around deck with stunning views; a large yard; a small, private sandy beach; and a dock with 3 feet of water at low tide which offers bridge-free access to Vineyard Sound. There is fresh water at the end of the dock.
This house was completely renovated in 2008 and the dock was replaced in 2010. Each year we continue to maintain/upgrade the house (new windows in 2013, leather couches in 2014, sliding doors in 2015, beach furniture in 2016 and completely re-painted in 2017).
House Amenities: The house has 3 bedrooms and a loft and can sleep 8-10 people. It has a very large 2nd floor master bedroom overlooking
the water with king size bed and private porch. Downstairs are 2 bedrooms-one with a queen bed and the other with a twin over double bunk bed. The loft has plenty of room for blow-up mattresses.
Other features/amenities include: Large Screen LCD TV, cable, high speed Internet access, WIFI network, dishwasher, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, patio, gas grill, beach with easy entry for kayaks, and deep water dock with water.
There is an association beach about 200 yards down the street and a small, private beach at the house.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My wife and I met at grad school in Boston. We loved the area and decided to stay here after graduation. I grew up on the water and always wanted to get back to the ocean, so when this property became available in 2008, we jumped on the opportunity.
Why the Owner Chose East Falmouth, Falmouth, MA, USA:
Being born and raised by a marine biologist and boat builder in south Florida, I spent my childhood and youth on the water. Living in the Boston area, we are close to the water, but I missed being on it. I worked in Falmouth during the summers while I was in college and fell in love with the towns combination of beautiful nature (beaches, ocean, bike trails etc...), fun downtown (restaurants, cafes and funky shops) and classic Cape Cod charm. So, when it came time for us to buy a place, Falmouth was our first choice. In terms of this particular house, we have a boat and a dog who loves the water. We hated taking vacations without him and it was a hassle to trailer the boat every time we wanted to use it. So, we purchased the house to be on the water, have a place to keep our boat and be able to take our dog with us when we went on vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has a deep water dock with bridge-free access to the Sound. It overlooks Washburn Island, a beautiful 330 acre undeveloped island that is part of the Waqouit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. The house is on two lots, so it has a large yard with breathtaking views across the water to the Island. The house faces due east and the prevailing winds are from the SW in the summertime so the house is protected from the winds that usually blow on the Cape in the afternoon: you can be sitting peacefully on the porch while the winds are blowing 20 MPH just a few hundred yards up the peninsula.
