About the Property

4 Bd, 2.5 Ba, Near Nickerson and Beaches, Koi Pond, Writer's Hut, Convenient!

Charismatic Cape Cod house, built in the 20s by the gamekeeper for a nearby estate, shows post and beam construction, rambling New England Extended Architecture accented with all new, sustainable renovation right down to the appliances.
Gather your family and friends in this beautiful Brewster house, then relax and enjoy whatever it is that makes you happy. Look out from any one of the sun-filled windows onto an acre and half of nature, landscaped beauty, and privacy all just for you. Walk to Nickerson or ride your horse and then, on to one of the many fresh or salt water beaches in Brewster. Ride the nearby bike path to P’Town or Wellfleet. Experience the joy that only this house can bring. Lounge by the koi pond and dawdle the afternoon away. Hideout in the Writer’s Cabin and write the Great American Novel. Snooze in the back yard, sheltered by large trees, thoughtful plantings, bounteous blooms. Walk, ride, or drive Historic Route 6A for art, great restaurants, bookshops, music, Brewster Ladies Library events and museums.
Three bedrooms and a loft have dream space for 6+, 2.5 half baths tastefully sited for convenience and privacy. New kitchen has a quiet space to read recipes, storage for kitchen tools, loads of pots and pans. Thoughtful renovation brings the whole house into the 21st century, including parking for your cars, boats, RV. We look forward to welcoming you to our house.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: In 2013 I was fortunate enough to find this most wonderful house nestled behind two pine trees, waiting for its new owner. It was originally the games keeper's house of the Nickerson Estate and has a wonderful history both inside and out. I renovated the house with the intention of it being welcoming to all. Some say when they enter, that it has the feeling of a big hug. Some just appreciate the calmness inside. The grounds have been landscaped over the past 80 years to reveal a natural setting with a yard that stretches to the far woods. From those woods you can see into Nickerson Park. The Koi Pond also has been on the property many years. It is a delight to watch the fish circle and swim as they wait for a possible snack. Birds abound as well. For me, this house, reflects all that I feel is important to me as the steward of this historic home. It brings me joy to be there and reminds me of the beauty of natural surroundings and a house whose history continues on.

Why Brewster, MA, USA:
Privacy abounds inside and out at this Brewster home. Plantings sited to please the eye, and the senses throughout the seasons. Inside, the main bedroom has 1/2 bath en suite, two additional full baths are located at opposite ends of the house for convenience. New interior has been decorated with family favorites and newly acquired goodies. All bedding and linens are new.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Large, private, lushly landscaped yard, koi pond, artist's retreat - a small rustic cabin removed from the main house for playing or painting, perhaps some yoga. Play loft or hideout for reading, games, puzzles, private time. Ecologically conscious renovation of all systems assures allergen free atmosphere for peace and quiet. Dogs under 135 lbs, over 2 years old and well-mannered are welcome. Two maximum. Please, no cats. Extensive decking and screened-in porch. Walk to Nickerson Park or Linnell Landing beach. Our many freshwater ponds beckon.
