Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We grew up in Massachusetts and currently live in Lexington, MA with our three young boys, twins that are 13 and their 'baby' brother who's 9. We have been life-long visitors and explorers of Cape Cod.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans, MA, USA:
About 10 years ago, we began to fall in love with the Orleans area and the Outer Cape. It was the unspoiled beaches, the ruggedness of the terrain, and the recreation options that caught our attention. We knew we wanted to make it part of our lives forever. The whole family, especially our children, who were ages 9, 9, and 5 at the time, fell in love with 20 Hofe Road the moment we entered the home and we hope you do too. It's a sanctuary - located on 1.3 acres at the end of a cul de sac and just a lazy stroll to Skaket Beach, which we consider to be the best beach on Cape Cod. In this home it's easy to get away from it all, yet stay connected to the beaches, shopping, night life, food, and recreation that Orleans and the outer cape have to offer. It's just a short drive to the cliffs, dunes, and surf of Nauset Beach and the gorgeous Cape Cod National Seashore. We never get bored of exploring Cape Cod's beauty and we invite you to share this experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has a unique feel. Tucked away in a wooded area, the home immediately made us feel relaxed. Inside, the home is detailed with natural and painted woodwork that creates such a comfortable and peaceful feeling. It immediately made us feel at home. But I have to say that the spacious yard (part of 1.3 acres of land) creates a feeling that we have really escaped from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. An occasional rooster crowing from a nearby home just adds to that experience.
