SEASCAPE is a private upscale Homeowner's Association located on picturesque Fiddler's Cove in North Falmouth. Located on Association property are 2 private beaches, a boat ramp with dock, 2 tennis courts, and lots of quiet streets for after dinner perambulations. Our house is located on a wooded lot, and is one of the most private properties in the neighborhood. Beautiful mature pine trees provide a natural privacy screen around the house. You can see foxes, rabbits and songbirds from our windows. SWIM! Buzzards Bay waters tend to be warmer than those of the outer Cape. We start swimming earlier in the season, and swim later. Lots of shells can be found on both of our private beaches. Of course Old Silver Beach is within a 10 minute drive, but why hassle with the crowds when you have your own uncrowded space a few minutes' walk away. RIDE! If you like bicycles, they can be rented at the Bike Zone in North Falmouth, at the start of the Shining Sea Bikeway. In an easy day, you can ride to Falmouth or Woods Hole, have lunch at one of the many seafood restaurants, walk the shop-lined streets, and ride home, stopping for ice cream along the way. The Martha's Vineyard Ferry also leaves from Woods Hole. Bike there and don't worry about parking! There is horseback riding available within 15 minutes of home. WALK! The quiet streets in our neighborhood beckon. Locals also especially enjoy the walk through the woods out to The Knob, a promontory overlooking Buzzards Bay. It's near Quissett Harbor, about 20 minutes away. EAT! One of our favorite lobster places is the Lobster Trap Restaurant, about 19 minutes away.. Casual indoor and outdoor dining overlooking an ocean inlet. They serve up the biggest and best lobsters ever, along with all your favorite beverages. Nothing better after a day at the beach! Additional ideas, directions and information will be found in the Welcome folder when you check into your Seascape paradise at 16 Anchorage Road. We can't wait for you to get here!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My sister and I have lifelong memories of the upper Cape. Our first experiences of the village of North Falmouth were wonderful summers on the beach, when our family stayed at my grandparents' house on the cliffs overlooking Old Silver Beach. Later on, our parents were looking for a retirement home with a mooring for the 26-foot sloop my dad had just finished building. While driving around the Silver Beach area, they stumbled on the brand new community of Seascape, which only had a few houses at the time. Dad heard the clinking of lines on aluminum masts and unerringly found his way direct to Fiddler’s Cove, the snug harbor adjacent to Seascape That did it! They optioned the property they wanted, a large, lovely tree-covered lot on a hill, with all the cash they had with them - $10! And this is the site of the current home.

Why the Owner Chose North Falmouth, Falmouth, MA, USA:
Our parents built their retirement home in 1972, and lived there year round. We would join them for visits and holidays, my sister from Texas with her husband and I from New York. With so many great memories, we wanted to preserve this family home on its large private lot. In 2014, after a hectic couple of months of renovation, we opened it to a very successful first rental season. Now, we’re happy to again open our home to guests who love or are destined to love Cape Cod, and want to build wonderful memories of their own. .

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy - it’s one of the larger lots in Seascape at a little over half an acre, and has plenty of trees for screening. The huge wrap-around 640 square foot deck is perfect for barbecues and outdoor gatherings. Behind the house is a good-sized grassy area for the kids to run around in. There’s plenty of parking, with room for a boat trailer or camper next to the garage. The interior of the house is immaculate: the spring 2014 renovation included new paint, rugs and wood floors as well as new furniture. We have central AC and Wi-Fi, and a full size washer and dryer. One of our favorite amenities is the outdoor shower with hot and cold water, for rinsing off after a day at the beach. (There’s nothing like showering with the sun shining down on you!) Invisible, but deeply felt, is the great history of a loving home our parents built and shared together for forty years. Because of all the work they did for the Seascape Association, our family received permission to place a memorial bench in our parents’ honor on the beach nearest the house. It’s very special and was constructed by the whole family and dedicated on October 4, 2014. You will find it on Sunset Beach by the jetty. We invite you to sit, and enjoy the view.
