Property description

Truly a wonderful home for family gatherings on your own private beach. Its 3800 square feet on over an acre of land provides ample space for family activities in its large living and dining areas while the loft and study provide getaway locations for quiet contemplation or children's play. All have a spectacular view, particularly at sunset, of the bay and Provincetown harbor in the distance. One of the few places on the East Coast where the sun sets on ocean waters. The kitchen has ample room and facilities for preparing meals and snacks for large numbers. The separate master bedroom suite with its king bed has a large bathroom, large closets, and a studio alcove for kids. The 'guest' wing has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and a full bathroom. There's a recently-renovated bedroom downstairs with ensuite. Daybeds in the loft, and a fold-out sofa in the study provide additional sleeping locations. Wireless internet access is available throughout the house. If you need to work while away, enjoy the ocean-facing study, with printer, 30 inch monitor, keyboard, and everything you'll need to be productive.

Enjoy the extra features of wide pine plank flooring, vaulted ceilings, and multiple beach front decks.

Swim on the private beach, go for a paddle on the stand-up paddle board, take out the (inflatable) kayak, run on the treadmill, or enjoy playing tennis at the association tennis court, two minutes walk away. And your kids will love the swing set we just added, too.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are two professors who work in the midwest, but who enjoy the seaside for rest and relaxation while, at the same time, continuing our studies. One of us is from Australia and values swimming, surfing, and other beach activities. The other, an American, grew up as a military brat, and always enjoyed summers seeing relatives at the beach in New England. Our two young kids love visiting the beach house.

Why the Owner Chose North Truro, MA, USA:
After spending two summers in Truro, we decided to choose this location as the place to which we could return year after year as our children grow up. We love the beach and the variety of activities we have throughout the area. An amazing place for quiet contemplation, as we're really quite secluded here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ample opportunities for family fun yet while also providing time and locale to continue research and writing activities. We also think it's the most beautiful place on earth.
