About the Property

4-Bedroom Rental in the Heart of Centerville Village

A perennial favorite on the Centerville House Tour, 'Centerboard' is considered by many to be the jewel of the village and the envy of many a passerby.

This impeccably-designed compound consists of three separate buildings, all of which are linked by a spacious 1,200-square-foot mahogany deck.

The original 1920s 'Cottage' consists of the kitchen/dining area, living room, full-sized 'Toile' bedroom, twin bedroom, one full bath and one half-bath [with full laundry]. Multiple French doors extend living to the outdoor space with comfortable seating, a large table for al-fresco dining and chaises for lounging. Two private outdoor showers complete the Cape Cod experience.

Across the deck is a free-standing screen pavilion, with thick-cushioned lounge chairs, a comfy 12' built-in banquette and a fully-stocked outdoor fireplace. This is the go-to space for reading, game playing or an afternoon nap. Finish off another perfect day with an evening fire and a glass of wine in this gorgeous stone-fireplace room.

Linked by a catwalk, additional accommodation may be found in the newly added Boathouse. The interior space is finished in traditional bead-board with a 20' high ceiling. This spacious, well-appointed, queen-size bedroom includes its own seating area and kitchenette. Through the double French-doors, there is a private deck with its own outdoor shower. A winding staircase leads up to a 2nd floor twin bunk-room. The Boathouse contains its own large bath with double sinks and 6' claw-foot soaking tub. The Boathouse has a separate stereo-system and central air-conditioning.

Beyond the living spaces is a beautifully-maintained yard with green open-spaces for children to play and gardens for fresh-cut flowers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I have always had a passion for classic homes of solid design. For me, a proper home does not have to be big, but it does need to be functional, tasteful and, above all else, comfortable for those who use it. Centerboard was built and designed based on these aesthetic principles.

Why the Owner Chose Centerville, Barnstable, MA, USA:
Centerboard is a quintessential New England home from days passed. Even with its prominent location and history, the property was neglected for many years, but upon my purchase, it received a full restoration of classic features and modern updates to ensure guests' comfort.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Centerboard is within walking distance of everything that the village of Centerville has to offer: Four Seas Ice Cream, The Penny Candy Store, Centerville Library, Centerville Playground and the pristine Craigville and Long Beaches. Although it is situated on Main Street, the property is tucked behind a 6' privet-hedge and backs up to private conservation land. The unique location and layout of the property allow guests a multitude of activities, while offering others ample space to get away from it all and relax on old Cape Cod.
