The house is a 15 min walk to the closest Bay beach (Ryder Beach) or a 2 min drive. Ocean beaches are a 10 min drive include Long Nook and Balston beaches. The area is very rural and beautiful, in the middle of the forested landscape of the Cape Cod National Seasore. Enjoy long walks on the many trails through the forest toward the beach, or long bike rides through the back country lanes of Truro and Wellfleet. The home is completely private, at the top of a hill, with beautiful western views and lovely sunsets. Two levels of porches capture the ocean breezes scented by pine and oak forests which surround the 4-acre property. Truro Town Center is the nearest town with services - about a 5 min drive, or Wellfleet Town Center, in the opposite direction, also about a 5 min drive. Bay and ocean beaches abound, as do kettle ponds deep in the forest. The restaurants and nightlight of Province town are just 12 min. away by car. You will love this natural, tranquil, private setting in the Cape Cod National Seashore!
Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: I'm an urban planner and an architectural historian who lives and works in San Francisco, but I designed this house for my parents on their property on the cape. We have spent many wonderful summers here, and have lovingly maintained this family summer home.
Why the Owner Chose Truro, Massachusetts, United States of America:
This property has been in the family since the 1880s, but was never developed until 1990, when this custom house was built in the form of a traditional salt-box with post-and-beam construction methods using reclaimed timbers and local stones. It has been a special place for our family, and I hope it can be for yours too!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The complete privacy, lovely scented breezes from the front porch, views of the forest, song birds, and sunsets make this a special place. After a day at the beach or the ponds, it's great to rinse off in the outdoor shower. After a week at Rose Hill, you will feel completely relaxed and at one with nature.
