About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home w/ central A/C, minutes from Rte 28 & Bass River beaches

1 Cricket Lane, South Yarmouth MA 02664.

Traditional Cape Cod charm meets modern convenience in this fully remodeled, beautifully furnished home, with high-end finishes throughout!

Enjoy mornings and evenings relaxing on the front or back decks – one is always in (or out of) the sun. After beaches, biking, hiking, or exploring, enjoy refreshing sleeping with great ventilation, portable fans, and cool Cape Cod nights – or take refuge in central air conditioning if it’s hot and sticky!

Fully-equipped open-concept kitchen with breakfast bar, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Large family room/dining area with wide-plank pine floor, TV/entertainment area, and access to the back deck. The formal living room has a fireplace and a beamed ceiling, and two comfortable bedrooms (one king bed, two twins) plus a pullout sofa in the family room can accommodate up to five guests. Two full baths (one with a walk-in shower) and a landscaped yard complete the picture.

Homeowner provides toilet paper, hand soap, laundry and cleaning supplies, beach chairs and umbrella (in basement), and bed sheets (wash and dry before departing). Guests must provide towels (linen rentals are available in the area; contact owner if this is a problem).

Quiet, friendly neighborhood and convenient central location close to a fresh water beach on Long Pond, walking distance to the Yarmouth/Dennis Red Sox field, and a short drive to Bass River beaches, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, Hyannis shopping, and cultural attractions. Public tennis around the corner. Close to two of Yarmouth's finest golf courses, a park, and walking trails. Ferries to Martha's Vinyard and Nantucket are a 15-minute drive away.

South Yarmouth is a quiet Mid-Cape residential community centrally located between Cape Cod's two major highways (Route 6 and Route 28), just minutes from historic Bass River and beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches. Freshwater swimming is a five minute walk away at Long Pond.

Other nearby attractions: two regulation golf courses (Bayberry Hills Golf Course and the classic Donald Ross-designed Bass River Golf Course); two prestigious executive golf courses (Blue Rock Golf Resort and The Club at Yarmouthport); the Cape Cod Rail Trail, awesome for biking and roller-blading; the Cape Cod Cultural Center, offering a variety of cultural events, including classes, workshops, exhibitions, and concerts; scenic excursions via the Cape Cod Central Railroad; Red Wilson Field, where the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox play in the Cape Cod Baseball League, recognized as one of the elite amateur summer leagues in the country; hiking and recreation areas (volleyball, basketball, playgrounds, and more), with day programs for kids at Flax Pond Recreation Area; sailing instruction and regattas; the incredibly friendly South Yarmouth Library; and a wide variety of restaurants, from traditional New England family fare at Captain Parker's to fine dining at the Yarmouth House.

The central location is convenient to all other Cape Cod attractions, including Provincetown, the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, the Cape Cod National Seashore, the Wellfleet Audubon Center, the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum, the Cape Cod Lavender Farm, and much more.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose South Yarmouth, Yarmouth, MA, USA:
We've always loved Cape Cod, and it's been our dream to eventually retire there. We bought this house to make our dream come true! We plan to move in for good in ten years or so; in the meantime, we're renting during the season and visiting during the off-season. Built in the early 1950's, the house had been expanded with a large family room but otherwise hadn't been renovated or upgraded. Initially, we planned just to re-do the kitchen. But one thing led to another...and before we knew it, we found ourselves in the midst of a complete renovation project. Except for the floors, almost every surface in the house is new, from the open-concept kitchen/family room to the bathrooms and bedrooms. We completely re-wired and re-plumbed, replaced the roof, installed new doors and windows, and re-shingled the exterior. We added the decks in front and back, and landscaped the yard. We did most of the work ourselves (we're both pretty handy) with help from friends and a few contractors. It took us the best part of three years. Now the house is finished, decorated, and beautiful. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Traditional Cape Cod charm with all modern conveniences.
