Property description

Gracious summer living is the best description of your vacation experience in this classic cape cod home.

A third generation family summer home that is located in a secluded, upscale neighborhood with its own private association beach. Directly on Saquatucket Harbor.

The back lawn stretches across the length of the house and has 180-degree unobstructed view of the Harbor. Here you can sit on the large patio every morning and watch the boats leave for a day at sea. Or at the end of the day watch the stunning sunset. How about lighting up the outdoor gas grill and just relax while watching your children safely play on the lawn. A perfect ending to the day.

True Cape Cod feel...this single-level cape home is rambling, roomy and traditionally tasteful decorated. Every room has amazing views of the harbor except one of the guest bedroom. The living room is extremely large with plenty of cozy seating, a large flat screen TV and fireplace. The kitchen is spacious with updated appliances. There is a large farm table that sits in front of the double sliding door leading out to the patio. Enjoy dinner here while once again taking advantage of the beautiful views.

There are four bedrooms and three full baths with an outdoor shower. All of the bedrooms are very spacious. On the far end of the house there is a large suite-type bedroom with two beds, couch and TV area. The perfect spot for privacy.
At the other end of the house there are two large bedrooms both with attached full baths. Also located on this end is a lovely den that can double for another bedroom. It has a ocean view with a trundle bed and a flat screen television.

The location is very desirable 1/2 mile walk to the best ice cream parlor in town and a 1/2 mile walk to Saquatucket Harbor. (boats to Nantucket leave daily from here)

The nicest part of this home is that it still has the charm of an original Cape Cod home. So if you are in search of a vacation with the true Cape Cod feel then this is the house for you.

Added amenities: fully air conditioned, wifi and cable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: This has been a family vacation home for many summers with lots of wonderful memories. Children-grandchildren -friendships that last forever. Nothing compares to the sights and sounds of being on Saquatucket Harbor.

Why the Owner Chose Harwich Port, Harwich, MA, USA:
It was originally our Great Uncle Leo Diehl and Aunt Grace's summer home. My Uncle worked at the Capitol for Tip O'Neill retired to cape and became a benefactor to many cape charities. There have been quite a few politicians of both party's from this era that enjoyed spending time here with my uncle and aunt...... If the walls could talk:) They were so proud of this home as we are too. Over the years it has been given a lot of tender loving care and been updated by all of us. But the nicest part is that it still has the charm of an original Cape home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is located in an upscale private neighborhood that has exclusive beachfront access and harbor front views. It's two miles from town yet allows you to escape from the hustle and bustle. We call it the secret 'hidden gem' of Harwichport.
