Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Peace and privacy prevail at this beautiful Mid-Century Modern home located on an over-sized lot in sought- after Field Point association. Offering expansive tidal water and marsh views this attractive and unusual summer home offers unique design in a most tranquil location. The upper level features spacious open kitchen-dining-living, wood floors and one bedroom while downstairs you will find two more bedrooms and a large family room all with water views as well! Stroll down the road in either direction to pristine bay beaches or relax at home on the wraparound porch watching the water fill in the marsh and the birds enjoy the tranquil Cape space. This beautiful Mid-Century Modern Cape Cod home designed by Boston architect Zena Nemetz has wrap-around deck, expanse of glass sliding doors with views of tidal inlet, only 300 yard short walk to gorgeous private association beach, and a short drive to ocean beaches and fresh water ponds. Newly renovated, private tennis courts available to only 17 houses as part of the tennis association. Three full bedrooms - two have queen-sized beds and one has two twin beds. All beds have added memory foam mattress tops for luxurious sleeping comfort. Open room with a futon double bed and sitting area. A flat screen TV each with a DVD player for each living room (2), kids have their own! Two full bathrooms plus a private, beautiful,outdoor shower with a gorgeous water view. Kitchen is fully equipped with lots of pots and pans, a stocked spice cabinet, plenty of mugs, wine glasses and silverware. We provide beach chairs, outdoor chairs and beautiful deck furniture. We have water rafts and toys available for use along with kids toys, books, and games.

Relax on the large wrap around deck, watch the wildlife in this private, secluded, quiet piece of paradise. Situated close to end of dead end road with private association bayside tidal beach (warm water). Brand new private association tennis courts (no additional cost to use). Some say the beach is one of the most beautiful they've ever seen.

Great roads for running or walking. You can walk all around the tidal inlet, or put a boat in the water - kayak, canoe, sailboat, motor boat. Friendly neighborhood where owners respect each other's privacy and peace.

Close to town and facilities and yet feels far away.

Please note: There is a spiral staircase which leads downstairs. This is a beautiful wooden staircase built in the 1960's contemporary style. It does not have risers and can be challenging for some dogs, very young children and elderly people. Also please note: we have retained the original vintage mid-century modern fixtures which are over 60 years old: very special, however, if you are looking for modern and brand new this home is not for you. We have all modern appliances but a sliding door may not work or a sliding screen may be challenging to use. (There are plenty of others that work well)

The house was designed by a renowned architect. The upstairs emphasizes the community living space - with beautiful open design. If you love the outdoors, wildlife, incredible private beach location - this is the house for you!

The upstairs queen bedroom has air- conditioning. The lower level of the house is partially built into the earth, and thus stays cooler. We recently added a floor AC unit for the downstairs queen. We have many floor fans available for additional comfort. It is a wonderful area for sleeping, and also includes the sitting area with large flat screen TV. We are committed to using eco-friendly cleaning products.

This is a house built in a Scandinavian/European mid-20th century design style. We like our renters to be very happy and to leave very rested and rejuvenated. We do everything we can to ensure you get the vacation you deserve! This is a place of deep serenity and peacefulness, exquisite wild views, and one of the best private tidal beaches in the world! The sunsets from the beach are extraordinary. If you are lucky you will see the full moon rise and the sun set at the same time. This is a spot where you can see that.

This location will leave you breathless. Watch the boats sail by, grill on the deck at night while taking in a magnificent sunset or take a short stroll along the marsh or in nearby quaint town of Wellfleet, and enjoy some of Wellfleet’s most celebrated restaurants: The Pearl, The Bookstore Café, Ceraldi and Mac’s Shack. Venture just a bit further down the road and you’ll be in the center of downtown Wellfleet enjoying gallery walks and square-dancing nights on the Harbor.

More about Wellfleet: Home to the pristine and impressive National Seashore, haven for artists and literary scholars, heaven for foodies, Wellfleet offers all of the rugged beauty of the Outer Cape with all of the convenience of more cosmopolitan areas. Several stunning ocean beaches are all within a few miles drive, clear kettle ponds are scattered throughout the landscape (and great for little ones), WHAT Theatre and the Wellfleet Drive-In provide live and vintage entertainment respectively, and the Audubon Wildlife Center is fabulous for trail-walking. If all of that activity makes you work up an appetite, stop in at one of many amazing Wellfleet restaurants (PB Boulangerie is a local favorite for those that love truly authentic Parisian bread and pastry.) For even more excitement, Provincetown is a 20-minute drive down Route 6, and boasts great shopping, whale watching and nightlife.

National Seashore nearby

With some 27,700 acres of federally-protected undeveloped uplands, bogs, pitch pine forests, sand dunes, and ponds in six towns (Chatham, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown), the Seashore takes up almost half of the town of Wellfleet and about 70 percent of Truro. In addition to six glorious ocean beaches, comprising nearly 40 miles of the finest seashore on the Atlantic coast (see our Beaches chapter), the Cape Cod National Seashore boasts nine hiking trails that meander through varied terrain.

Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

U.S. Rt. 6, Wellfleet

The Massachusetts Audubon Society operates this 1,000-acre-plus tract of salt marsh, woodland, beach, tidal flats, and moorland. What was once a turnip and asparagus farm is now a haven of self-guided nature trails and superb bird watching, along with a natural history day camp for children and week-long field trips for older folk. Guided walks, canoe cruises through Nauset Marsh, Monomoy cruises and seal and whale-watching trips are regularly sponsored. The excursions are extremely popular and book up fast. The one-and-a-half-mile Goose Pond Trail, part of the 5 miles of trails, offers a look at a diversity of habitats and leads to the shore. It's an excellent place for viewing shore birds, hawks, and herons. If you're still getting to know Mother Nature, borrow or purchase a copy of the 32-page Goose Pond Trail plant identification booklet at the visitor center.

About Michael Schvarzkopf

Our family built this house. We were among the first builders on this road on the Cape and have a long history in the area. It is quite magical and special to us. We come from Boston. Our parents have passed away, sadly. The house is now owned by the adult children who live in NY, New England and New Mexico. We work for nonprofits, the UN and own a bakery in Maine.

Michael Schvarzkopf purchased this house in 1965

Why Michael Schvarzkopf chose Wellfleet

The scenic beauty, spectacular beach and area. Wonderful town nearby. Outer cape is unusual and a great area. Many renters have said this location is 'the best on the Cape.'

What makes this house unique

Amazingly quiet and peaceful. Beautiful views and gorgeous beach. You can rest like you haven't in perhaps a long time! And play as well...Our land is proud to be part of the endangered Diamondback Terrapin ecosystem. Each year these turtles nest on the property and are protected by the conservancy with wire covers. Each year there are sightings of the beautiful red foxes too!

Another lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

I had another lovely stay at this beautiful house in its stunning setting. It was hard to leave and return to "real life." The owner and his excellent property manager were highly responsive and cooperative in working with me early in my stay to resolve a utility start-up issue. Hopefully I will be able to return and know that others will enjoy this special place in the meantime.

beautiful spot and place

  • 4 of 5

Great place. There were 6 of us for two weeks, and it was spacious enough. My older son came for a week, and slept on the futon in basement. He was fine with that, but not much privacy. Beds were all comfortable, and we did not find the basement to be musty or overly humid as others have mentioned. The fans were all welcome as there were several days it got pretty hot and humid outside. My only complaint is the state of the screens on the sliding glass doors (one sliding glass door could not be opened at all, which was a bummer). On our first day there, the screen for the main sliding glass door into the house came off. The manager of the property immediately responded and told us it would be replaced, but it never was. Thus preventing any cross breeze thru the main living area, which was needed. The other screens were also on their last legs. That would be my primary recommendation - replace those screen doors. Nonetheless, we had a great time. Thanks.

Peaceful, hidden, bright, spacious

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful and hidden spot, great for families with teenagers. They have their own space downstairs. Upstairs is light and bright. The open layout lends itself to family time. Nice views of marshes, just around the corner from a private bay beach! Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation spot!

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation with our adult children in this beautiful, comfortable home. Everything was as represented, and there was plenty of space for six adults to comfortably spread out. We loved time spent out on the deck, with the beautiful view of the salt marsh, and spent many happy meals together there. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to navigate. We enjoyed exploring the beaches of Wellfleet and appreciated the chairs and umbrellas provided, although one extra umbrella would have been welcome. Thank you for this opportunity to create some special family memories. We hope to return sometime in the future.

Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and bright when we walked in. The house is tucked away in a quiet spot. It is a short walk to the most serene, relaxing beach. The views are beautiful and the sounds of the birds are just what you need to relax. The view from any part of the house is wonderful as well. Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere.
