LOCATED IN THE HEART OF WELLFLEET, our 18th c. antique cape style home is one of the most photographed properties in town! Situated in the 'Town Center' we offer spectacular views of historic Duck Creeke. Abundant with aquatic wildlife and shoreline birds this tidal saltwater inlet is perfect for kayaking and leisurely strolls.

OUR 18TH CENTURY ANTIQUE GARRET is impeccably maintained with all the charm of yesteryear, rustic yet comfortable and newly refurbished. The “Garret” is a fully independent living space in the upper level of our home. It has a private entrance and features a 'U' shaped, en suite layout surprisingly spacious separating the sleeping area from the kitchen. Four sash windows welcome luscious salt air breezes and a state of the art cooling system for when you need that too! Three skylights generate gorgeous light and airiness—just great for listening to live birdsong up in the trees!

THE SHIP'S BELL SETS A NAUTICAL MOOD for you as it chimes from the Congregational Church bell tower much like it did onboard ships at sea since the early part of the 15th century. Our guests have found the experience both soothing and curious.

FEWER THAN 50 STEPS TO UNCLE TIM'S (walking) BRIDGE will set your journey across to Hamblin Island and all the way to Chipman’s Cove by footpath along the creeke at lowtide. Be sure to stop along the way to sign the Bench Book quietly waiting for the unsuspecting passerby inspired by the open salt air and visual beauty. You will love the soft, sinuous landscape as you explore the pastoral outdoors in a truly picturesque setting.

WELLFLEET IS KNOWN FOR IT’S OYSTERS, ART GALLERIES and critically acclaimed theater. Experience spectacular sunsets and a romantic beach fire on the bay. Walk to gourmet restaurants, fresh fish markets and village shopping. Yoga studios, massage therapists and acupuncturists are conveniently located right here in the neighborhood for both relaxing and recharging your spirit and soul.

OUR HOME IS A SHORT STROLL TO MAYO BEACH, THE HARBOR AND MAIN STREET in Wellfleet Center where you can spend your time swimming, playing tennis, basketball or listening to free live music events at Baker’s Field Tent. Wellfleet is brimming with concerts at numerous venues throughout town all summer long. We boast an outstanding public library, host to poets, scholars, historians and classical musicians who offer us insight into their life’s work during all season long.

HOP IN THE CAR FOR QUICK AND EASY ACCESS TO WELLFLEET'S UNIQUE KETTLE PONDS, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, the Audubon Society and magnificent ocean beaches along the Cape Cod National Seashore occupying 61% of Wellfleet's total landmass.

WE OFFER A PERFECT SPOT FOR YOUR NEXT GETAWAY!

We currently have 7 day, Saturday to Saturday bookings available.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: A visual artist, curator and art dealer I enjoy the opportunity to travel making it possible to derive food for thought and inspiration for my muse. In 2016 I traveled to Upstate New York; Austin, Texas; San Miguel de Allende; Mexico City; Bangkok and various destinations in Myanmar (Burma.) Having the chance to interact with locals and native people while seeing the sites has been phenomenal. My personal growth and "vibo-meter" has since really spiked. If that's what happens by getting off the block then...bring it on!

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet, MA, USA:
We made this our primary residence because we love the light, the dunes, the soft landscape, the cultural community and the people. Our strong ties with the Provincetown Artists' Colony stems from a 45 year relationship with visual artists we have represented and exhibited in our gallery. Today, we are private dealers, curating exhibitions at on and off site venues.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The Atlantic Ocean and Cape Cod Bay side beaches offer a unique and wide range of shoreline ecosystems for the nature enthusiast. Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Duck Creeke Great Island Wellfleet Harbor & Pier MA Audubon Society Cape Cod National Seashore Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theater Wellfleet Library Wellfleet Historical Society Preservation Hall Pamet Theater Wellfleet Oysters Wellfleet Oyster Festival Coastal Cuisine Sight seeing Beach combing Bird watching Deep sea/surf/pier fishing Whale watching Sailing Cinemas Drive In -- operating on the forearm of The Cape since 1957 serving as a venue for a Flea Market during the day Beach forests Autumn foliage
