For that significant family reunion, the special birthday or a get together with old friends, this is the perfect choice. Located on thirty acres of privately owned land immediately adjacent to 300 plus acres of the newly created Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, this secluded property fronts directly on Buzzard's Bay.
The house and a large sloping lawn (soccer, volleyball anyone?) are situated on a bluff featuring spectacular views looking south across the expanse of the Bay towards the Elizabeth Islands. On a clear summer day Martha's Vineyard can be seen in the distance. To the east is the entrance to the Cape Cod Canal with its interesting array of ship traffic, while to the west, beautiful summer sunsets appear over Marion. The property includes its own private beach protected by a breakwater that is home to a variety of fish just waiting to be caught.
The house is very spacious with two large living rooms facing the Bay, a very large kitchen/dining area and a library. Five of the six bedrooms on the second floor offer ocean views while the sixth (master) bedroom, is extremely ample. Almost all of the rooms in the house (and all of the bedrooms) have been recently renovated. There is dormitory style single sleeping for seven on the third floor and an adjacent cottage is optionally available for rental, sleeping an additional six people. Wide verandas extend around two sides of the house, providing cool spaces for gracious outdoor living.
For those for who enjoy walking/biking, there is ample opportunity on the well-marked paths of the Wildlife Sanctuary and local back roads. A public golf course is located within a short distance from the property and there are numerous restaurants, shopping opportunities and other recreational facilities close by. Baseball enthusiasts can take in Wareham Gatemen games of the Cape Cod League, seeing young talent as they progress to the major leagues. For history buffs, the famous whaling city of New Bedford and Plimouth Plantation are each approximately twenty minutes away.
