Property description

Briar Hill is our beloved summer house set on over 3 acres of private land on exclusive Wing’s Neck, Pocasset. Four generations of our family have enjoyed summers in this three-story, cedar-shingled and clapboard sided house, originally built by a sea captain in the early 1920’s.

While updated to provide all the comforts of modern life, the soul of the house remains true to a simpler, quieter time. With 7 bedrooms Briar Hill is spacious and elegant while at the same time retaining the rustic charm of an old-fashioned summer house. While there is good cellular coverage, there is intentionally no WiFi or cable. There is a tennis court with a playground surface, wrap-around porch, fireplaces, and two resident-only beaches within walking distance. Additional amenities include sea kayaks, yard games, outdoor grill, large yard, ping pong table, quiet country roads for walking/jogging/biking, a slip which will accommodate a boat no longer than 12 feet and easy access to nearby towns of Falmouth and Woods Hole, as well as the ferry for day drips to Martha’s Vineyard.
