Owner info

Year Purchased: 1957

About the owner: We are originally from CA, but are currently spread out all over the states. We have had family reunions at Anchor to Windward for many years and could not think of a better place to locate during the summers.

Why the Owner Chose Osterville, Barnstable, MA, USA:
Anchor to Windward is located in the town of Osterville, which is one of the most attractive towns on Cape Cod for both its natural beauty and the wonderful families that summer here.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
We are blessed with an ideal location that has a private beach, a deep water dock, a main house and boat house. The set up offers a lot of flexibility in terms of handling different size families and guests. Our location has one of the best sunset views in Barstable County from a bluff overlooking the waters of West Bay. You can watch the sail boats race out of the Wianno Yacht Club or get out on the water yourself. Heaven for anyone who enjoys coastal living and wants both privacy and direct water access.
