About the Property

En Suite Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL — Smack dab in the center of the old village with especially nice views of Duck Creek - a tidal salt water eco system with plenty of coastal bird sightings. We are minutes away from beaches on foot & by car. Restaurants and entertainment venues are a short walk from our home so you don't need a car.

Everyone says, this is a place to relax, rejuvenate and to become inspired. So you can let us know what you think when you come and see for yourself.

LOCATED IN THE HEART OF WELLFLEET — our 18th Century Antique Home is one of the most photographed properties in town. Our home was built around 1780. It was one of the first houses constructed on this spit of sand by the early settlers. We've made the kind of improvements that preserve the charm of yesteryear - rustic yet comfortable to also support the way we live today. We offer:
— way comfortable queen bed
— high-speed wifi
— air conditioning
— free parking
— gas grill
— 27” high definition TV
— 140+ channels
— architectural antiquity dating back to the late 1700s

IMPECCABLY MAINTAINED WITH ALL THE CHARM OF YESTERYEAR the Garret’s three large skylights generate gorgeous light and airiness—just great for listening to live birdsong up in the trees! The exposed beams have stories to tell about our european ancestors who built this place using repurposed wood from whaling ships abandoned sometime after the Revolution. It was a natural way of life back then to recycle old timbers sitting around no longer being used. ...if only those boards could speak...

STRONG TIES TO ARTISTS' COLONY — This landmark is the site location of our proud history as collaborators and contributors to the art world. We are the much celebrated CHERRY STONE GALLERY since 1971. It has been a privilege to host world class artists and local artists too who gathered here for countless art openings over the years. Join us and our Wellfleet community for another memorable season of art, theatre and coastal activities guaranteed to be thought provoking.

FEWER THAN 50 STEPS TO UNCLE TIM'S (foot) 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.

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.

WELLFLEET IS KNOWN FOR IT’S OYSTERS, 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 entertainment 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 the season long schedule.

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.

A fully independent living space on the upper level of the main house offers privacy and pleasure.

Thank you for considering our home as a destination. It's a good place to hang your hat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I'm a visual artist and curator.

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet, MA, USA:
Having a home in Wellfleet is all about being close to magnificent bayside and ocean beaches. We also have fresh water kettle ponds formed by glaciers 15k years ago. it's amazing to think they still exist today. Living in the Cape Cod National Seashore is a real treat for me. 61% of Wellfleet is protected conservation land with the Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean flanking the un-interupted shorelines on the east and west side of town. And, we are right next door to the hustle of Provincetown - a perfect day trip to make during your stay. 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
