Car: Recommended

Argosy is only one minute from Crosby Landing beach (a Cape Cod favorite) and one minute from the wonderful town of Orleans. We're 6 miles from Nauset Beach -- and the bike path and Nickerson State Park are only a short stroll from the house. Provincetown, the tip of the Cape is 30 minutes away.

Our adorable bowling alley is only a mile away, as are a great selection of restaurants and bars. Be sure to make time for a drive-in movie -- and visit the drive-in on the weekends for the best flea market around.

There is so much to do, you'll wish you had more time! Antiquing, seafood, exploring the ocean and Bay, swimming, surfing, walking, sightseeing, miniature golf, visiting quaint towns like Chatham, Wellfleet -- and Brewster!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Allison is an Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker, whose films focus on endangered wildlife (ArgoFilms, Ltd). Jim is a noted Cape Cod painter (JimHolland-Art). We share a deep love for Cape Cod. Allison grew up here and Jim has lived here for 20 years.

Why the Owner Chose Brewster, MA, USA:
We absolutely fell in love with this house! The wide pine planks on the floors, the European kitchen, the gracious windows...It has old world charm, but is fresh and bright (no dark, musty old bedrooms or moldy showers!). The location is wonderful: we're one mile from our favorite Bay beach, one mile from Orleans center, within walking distance from the beautiful ponds of Nickerson State Park and our amazing bike path, which stretches for 22 miles from Dennis to Wellfleet. We're halfway down the Cape, which means we're only 20 miles from the tip (Provincetown).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our location is excellent. The fact that the house has an additional studio apartment means the property can be turned into a family compound! With a large, private backyard and outdoor shower, it's a great place for the clan to gather. It's also an extremely private and romantic setting for a more intimate experience :)
