About Maureen Cronin
I grew up in a suburb west of Boston but always summered in Osterville and finally bought this house in 1983. Because I spent the summers there, I was able to acquire many friends along the way which is always a plus. The people in the village are friendly and outgoing especially in the summer when the weather is so pleasant. The beaches attract people on the warm days and the pace of life becomes slow and casual.

Why Maureen Cronin chose Osterville
The location of this lovely home on two acres of totally private living on an exclusive street in Osterville while only two miles away from two popular beaches made it an obvious buying opportunity. There are no college parties next door. Also it's in a very safe neighborhood yet less than two miles to the Village.
What makes this Cottage unique
This house was originally the home of the gardener for a large estate in Osterville and it has special plantings in the landscape. The best feature of the location is the total privacy that you have. There are no neighbors on either sides, so if peace and quiet are important you will definitely experience that. It is set on almost two full acres with ample yard space.

Cape Cod house
I throughly enjoyed my stay at this Osterville property. It a charming and a typical Cape Cod house. The setting is quiet and beautiful
House is situated on nearly two acres of land, surrounded by pine trees for total privacy on three sides. Cape Cod structure with bright sunlight throughout. Residential street is only one mile long with neighbors' houses well off the road. Makes for a pleasant walk or bike ride. Less than two miles away is the town of Osterville, which is a small Cape Cod village with lots of small specialty shops, five eating establishments, a new library, a marina, and many service oriented businesses. There are two beaches about two miles away, the first being Craigville Beach which is considered one of the most popular public beaches on Cape Cod, and the second is called Dowses' Beach, which is a smaller beach and requires a beach sticker to utilize. The larger town of Hyannis is about six miles away and offers a larger selection of restaurants, melody tent, shops, two steamship boats going to the nearby islands of Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard. Boston is seventy five miles north of Osterville and Logan Airport is located there. Cape Cod is noted for the fishing, the whale watching, the antiques shopping, the golfing, the beaching and especially the mild weather with breezes from the ocean. This house is just two houses removed from the Atlantic Ocean.
