Gorgeous 3+ bedroom home on Bassett's Island. Property is 3 1/2 acres and includes 1/4 mile of your own private sandy beach loaded with shells for beachcombing, and lined with wild beach roses and beach grass. Accessible only by boat (provided), the house is directly on the water, with beach on all three sides - the entire peninsula is yours to enjoy. It is the perfect getaway for adults and kids alike!
You'll have a large landscaped yard with red cedars, oaks, lily, hosta and herb gardens. Pick fresh chives for your omelet in the morning, or mint for your mojito in the evening. There are views of the bay and ocean in all directions, providing the opportunity to enjoy both magnificent sunrises and sunsets across the water.
The bright and sunny house is beautifully designed and built by a local craftsman builder, with water views from every room. Attractively decorated and tastefully furnished, it is a great place to relax and unplug. Inside, the clerestory living room is especially spacious and inviting. Outside, the large wraparound porch and comfortable chairs beckon you to sit and forget the clock.
While on an island, our house does have town water so you'll never have to worry about the uncertainties of a well. You'll have all the amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, high end Weber gas grill, fire pit, wood burning stove, satellite flat screen television with Direct TV, DVD player and loads of board games. Three sea kayaks, one Sunfish sailboat, rubber raft with anchor and other water toys are included. Play bocce ball, stick ball, croquet and badminton in the spacious yard. Take a nap in the hammock. Sit and watch the water from a chair on the bluff. Enjoy a walk in the woods. Find that perfect shell on the beach. Unwind with an outdoor shower after your afternoon swim.
Linens and towels are provided. The house is well stocked with all the basic necessities, including toiletries in the bathrooms, and loads of dried spices, cooking oils etc. in the kitchen. The house will be cleaned, the yard, flower and herb gardens maintained and the beds made prior to your arrival.
The closest mainland towns include Sandwich and Falmouth with good restaurants, museums and activities the whole family will enjoy. The Shining Sea Bike Path and the Woods Hole Aquarium are both nearby. The Bourne Bridge is a ten minute drive, and the city of Boston and Logan Airport just an hour drive from this quiet part of the Cape.
The island is easily accessible by a 15 minute boat ride. Renters must be familiar with the use of small outboard engines.
