About the Property
4 Br/2 Bath Home Sleeps 8 Max.
Welcome to your treehouse in the woods! Giant Living/Dining window-walls look out to full deck and pond views, stunning in every season. 2,100 s.f. modern house with central A/C, furnished with stylish yet cozy mid-century furniture and art. 3 Queen Beds and 2 children's twins provide sleeping options for up to 8 on 3 levels. Oversized pond-level studio (has no door, but good privacy) has queen bed with 6' walk-out sliding glass door, lovely view of forest and pond. Street/entry level has Master Suite with double sink bathroom and walk-in shower, fully equipped cook's kitchen (no need to bring cookware!) with full compliment of stainless appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, gas range, toaster oven. Adjacent breakfast nook for 2-3 people, separate Dining room for 8. Living room has cable plasma TV and music system, wi-fi and land-line phone. Full-size washer/dryer also on this level. Upper level has queen bedroom, paired twin bedroom, bathroom with walk-in shower under large skylight - watch the clouds pass by as you bathe. All queen bedrooms have forest/pond views; twins bedroom just forest greenery. Pond is a 'Kettle Pond' - spring-fed, and so clear and inviting; short forest path takes you to water's edge. No road or highway noise - something rare on the Cape. Walk a public path through adjacent Nickerson State Park to even larger ponds with public canoe, paddle and sail boat hourly rentals. Minutes drive to half-dozen town bayside beaches - great for kids - or 10 minute drive to famous Nauset Beach, with ocean waves and the occasional seal-sighting. Route 6A is utterly charming, and historically protected against the poor development decisions that afflict the towns near Hyannis. Relax in nature, close to attractions and activities.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We're a designer couple - one daddy an architect, the other an interior designer, with a 7-year old boy and 88-year old mother. We've spent wonderful times at the tree house, and want to share it with other families looking for a memorable experience.
Why the Owner Chose Brewster, MA, USA:
What's so special about a pond framed by forest? Somehow, every time of day and every season is bewitching. Rain in the forecast? Gorgeous on the pond. Up at 5:30am? The dawn unfolds so beautifully across it you might consider becoming a 'morning person'. In the Fall, the leaves create a golden/orange palette; in Winter, the bare trees covered in snow are lovely, the pond freezing and thawing in different ways. Stand in two feet of water for a summer swim, and witness the baby fish swimming by. The pond is warmer than the ocean, so it's a refreshing alternative to the beach; shady protection from the summer sun, private to the owner's association so there are rarely others on 'your' pond. With a double-height Living/Dining room overlooking it, your connection to the pond is always present. If you've ever stayed in Brewster, you'll know that it's a pretty relaxed place. It has no real 'downtown' with traffic and congestion, although the center of Orleans is a 5-minute drive, or a bike-ride along the trail. 6A has restaurants and antique shops and the Natural History Center if you want them on a rainy day, or town beaches on the bay where low tide stretches out for miles, and locals dig for clams. The immediate neighborhood is populated with more owners than renters, and you'll see friendly dog-walkers now and then, giving a wave as they go by.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some less obvious considerations (that may mean a lot to your vacation!): Central air conditioning in a recently insulated house means comfort; no sheets damp with humidity at bed time, no roar of window units when trying to sleep. The upstairs rooms have ceiling fans as well, for those days when a little movement is all you need. Sunny bathrooms with walk-in showers: can help the day begin on the right note. Foremost, a Home: this house wasn't purchased or furnished 'as a rental', and the sense of quality is gratifying for the discerning vacationer. Enjoy the details that come with an architect's unique vision. Central Location on Cape: right off 6A and near exit 12 off route 6, there's easy access for excursions - Chatham Center nearby, to the fun of Provincetown. Convenience of Supermarkets nearby; Shaw's and Super Stop and Shop are minutes away, as is the Orleans Farmer's Market (check times). Taking a break from cooking? A full range of restaurants, from clam shacks to fine dining are easily accessible within a few minutes drive.
