About the property

Top of Falmouth Heights, walk to everything, front and back porches, large yard.

Located at the top of historic Falmouth Heights, this charming 1920’s beach house is just one block from Falmouth Heights Beach and cool ocean breezes. It is an ideal location for families as it is in a quiet safe neighborhood; a 5-minute walk from the Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard, walking distance to 3 restaurants, one overlooking Nantucket Sound; and Falmouth Inner Harbor offering fishing, boating, sailing, and additional restaurants. Boutique shopping, fine and eclectic dining, bakery, day spas, and the beautiful Falmouth Green all within one mile. Shopping in Downtown Falmouth also includes grocery stores, sporting goods, clothing and gifts shops.

Beautifully restored to its original charm, with gleaming wide pine floors and yellow pine matchboard walls. The first floor has a bathroom, kitchen, separate dining room with table and chairs for six, and a living room which leads to the front porch, where there are chairs and a table for eating, reading or just relaxing. The back porch has a picnic table and is convenient to the gas grill and large yard. The enclosed outside shower is nestled amongst forsythia bushes just steps from the house. On the second floor are 4 bedrooms, 1 with a Queen bed 1 with a double and 2 with 2 twin beds each, and a half bath. In 2016 we put in a new stove, new couch and living room chair, and new Queen size bed. Please, No Pets and No Smoking.

About Anne Caldera 617-335-1469

[History of the House]

In June of 1922, Mr. Frank Meyer of Walpole, Mass., purchased two lot in Falmouth Heights, at some time after that he built the house which now stands at 24 Forest Ave. Mrs. Meyer told me that, “Mr. Meyer” (as she always referred to her husband) built this house for me. Mrs. Georgia Meyer and her two daughters Helen and Barbara would come to Falmouth Heights every spring and stay through the summer. During the peak of the tourist season when Falmouth Heights was at is busiest and the Terrace Gables was the place to go, Mrs. Meyer would rent out rooms in the house and she and her daughters would sleep in the then enclosed porch, which is now the bathroom and back porch. The “ROOMS” sign that she would place on the front lawn now adorns the stairway in the living room. In later years Mrs. Meyer came every spring and would stay into late September. We purchased “The Meyer House” in September of 1992, at the time Mrs. Meyer was 101, and she lived to be 103. Through the next year renovations and upgraded such as complete rewiring, the addition of running Hot Water, an indoor shower and a total kitchen makeover took place and the house had its first summer guests in June of 1994. Over the years we have continued to add, upgrade and modify the house but all the while keeping the original Cape Cod Cottage charm.

Loved the location in regards to the beach. Nice set up for any family. Outdoor shower was perfect for coming back from the beach. It was clean with plenty of room in the lower main part of the house.

The only minor issue was the Bedrooms upstairs were small and some of the mattresses could use replacing. Also tough navigating the stairs to the bedrooms. I had my in-laws down for a few days who are older, and it was tough for them to use the narrow steep stairs up and down. We had a great experience overall. Loved siting out on the porch at night sipping wine and reading a book. I would recommend renting this place and will probably look to rent it again if my kids get into the Falmouth road race next year.

Thank you,

Ken M.
