Property description

This is a charming cottage with detail and character. It has the feel of an older home made new. The high ceilings, hardwood floors(newly sanded fall 2015), and wooden stairwell show its style and beauty, and yet it is very clean, bright, and welcoming. The kitchen has been updated in fall 2015 with new granite countertops and hardwood floors put in. The pictures do not reflect these changes just yet. The house is located off maravista in a family friendly area with children in the neighborhood. The beaches are very close by, less than four streets away. You can just barely see Martha's vineyard from one of the upstairs bedrooms, but from the beaches it seems so close it looks like you can reach out and touch it.

A little more on the area...: It would be a great house for one large family or two smaller families to spend a vacation. There is lots to do in Falmouth, and there are also the islands and other parts of Cape Cod to explore as well. The Falmouth town beaches alone keep us busy for a long time. Biking is a great way to explore the area, and can carry you quite far on the islands, around Famouth, and Woods Hole, for candy stores, ice cream, beaches, and more. Personally we find so much to do in Falmouth, Woods Hole, and Martha's Vineyard, we almost never drive to other parts of Cape Cod.

Car: Recommended

Falmouth has a great downtown area as well as numerous beaches. It is close to woods Hole and less than a mile from the Island queen which will take you to Martha's vineyard. Falmouth is a very family friendly area with lots to do and enjoy including the bike path, golf courses, and great food and shopping downtown.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am a teacher and have grown up in falmouth during my summers.

Why the Owner Chose East Falmouth, Falmouth, MA, USA:
This property was owned by good friends when I was a child and the location was just perfect to walk to the beach and still easily get to Martha's Vineyard and Woods Hole too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some of my favorite things: I love that there are french doors sectioning off the living room from the sunroom where part of the family might be watching TV. I like how you can easily walk back from the beach if you want a snack or an afternoon nap. I love the old light fixtures all painted new. I love the art work - all photos of a terrific artist Lindsay Shaw.
