Property description

The wonderful thing about this house is its privacy (it is surrounded by cedars) and its proximity to two bay beaches, both eminently suitable for walking, picnicking, swimming, kayaking -- great for families with kids. There are several other Eastham beaches within a mile or two, and many freshwater ponds. The house itself affords space for all - a separate sunroom for peaceful afternoon reading, a well-equipped kitchen leading into the dining room (which spills out to the large deck, sunny til well into the late afternoon), a nice living room for games and evening fun. The master bedroom is on the first floor and opens out to the deck. There is a full bath on both floors. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with beautiful hand-carved twin beds. There is really nothing missing from this friendly house. On one side of the house is a HUGE oak tree, perfect for climbing and swinging.

Keywords: Comfortable, very private, close to the bay, nicely appointed and bright, large deck, perfect for a family

Car: Recommended

This is a great location -- a very quick walk to two wonderful bay beaches, a river for kayaking, the bike trail. And yet we are a two-minute drive to Orleans, where you will find most anything you're looking for. The neighborhood is quiet.

If you have a dog, the only Eastham dog beach is 1/4 mile away. Off the back deck, there's now a fenced in area for dogs.

The owners live in this house October through May, so it is not just a rental property -- making it much more special and friendly.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Polly and Don Bishop have lived in Eastham for over 30 years, many of them spent in a house in the National Seashore on the ocean side. Moving over to the bay side was a good, important decision, as they love the calmer waters. Until 2000, Polly had a pottery shop in Orleans, Don was a teacher-turned realtor. Now they spend summers in Maine, sailing the waters of Penobscot Bay and pursuing their artistic careers in pottery, sculpture and painting.

Why the Owner Chose Eastham, MA, USA:
The house is perfect -- not too big, totally private, nice neighborhood. Very close to the bay beach and also to the bike trail. The deck off the back of the house affords yet another space to enjoy oneself alone or with others. The town of Orleans is a minute away for shopping. Everything's right there for convenience, yet it feels completely off by itself. Eastham is right in the middle between the fabulous arts communities of Wellfleet and Provincetown and the lovely old town of Chatham. And all in between one finds superb beaches for surfing, picnicking and so on --beauty abounds!
