IMPECCABLY MAINTAINED WITH ALL THE CHARM OF YESTERYEAR, rustic yet comfortable and newly refurbished to support the way we live today. A fully upgraded custom kitchen tastefully keeping with the character of our 18th century home is sure to inspire. A three-pane sliding glass door spills out into a private and fully paved patio surrounded by mature greenspace —just great for having morning coffee while listening to live birdsong up in the trees! Plenty of furniture to sit back and relax in throughout the home promises to suit your every mood.

LOCATED IN THE HEART OF WELLFLEET, OUR 18th CENTURY ANTIQUE FULL CAPE called a "Double House" during the 1700s is one of the most photographed properties in town! Situated in the 'Town Center' conservation area we offer immediate access to historic Duck Creeke. Abundant with aquatic wildlife and shoreline birds this tidal saltwater inlet is perfect for kayaking at high tide.

STRONG TIES TO ARTISTS' COLONY — This landmark is the site location of our proud history as collaborators and contributors to the art world. We are the much celebrated CHERRY STONE GALLERY since 1971. It has been a privelege to host world class artists and local artists too who gathered here for countless art openings over the years. Join us and our Wellfleet community for another memorable season of art, theatre and coastal activities guaranteed to REJUVENATE your soul.

FEWER THAN 50 STEPS TO UNCLE TIM'S (walking) BRIDGE will set your journey across to Hamblin Island and all the way to Chipman’s Cove by footpath along the creeke at lowtide. Be sure to stop along the way to sign the Bench Book quietly waiting for the unsuspecting passerby inspired by the open salt air and visual beauty. You will love the soft, sinuous landscape as you explore the pastoral outdoors in a truly picturesque setting.

THE SHIP'S BELL SETS A NAUTICAL MOOD for you as it chimes from the Congregational Church bell tower much like it did onboard ships at sea since the early part of the 15th century. Our guests have found the experience both soothing and curious.

WELLFLEET IS KNOWN FOR IT’S OYSTERS, ART GALLERIES and critically acclaimed theater. Experience spectacular sunsets and a romantic beach fire on the bay. Walk to gourmet restaurants, fresh fish markets and village shopping. Yoga studios, massage therapists and acupuncturists are conveniently located right here in the neighborhood for both relaxing and recharging your spirit and soul.

OUR HOME IS A SHORT STROLL TO MAYO BEACH, THE HARBOR AND MAIN STREET in Wellfleet Center where you can spend your time swimming, playing tennis, basketball or listening to free live music events at Baker’s Field Tent. Wellfleet is brimming with entertainment at numerous venues throughout town all summer long. We boast an outstanding public library, host to poets, scholars, historians and classical musicians who offer us insight into their life’s work during the season long schedule.

HOP IN THE CAR FOR QUICK AND EASY ACCESS TO WELLFLEET'S UNIQUE KETTLE PONDS, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, the Audubon Society and magnificent ocean beaches along the Cape Cod National Seashore occupying 61% of Wellfleet's total landmass.

INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE QUEEN BEDS, original millwork, trim, fireplaces and wide plank pine floorboards outfit each of the two bedrooms. Three double hung sash windows welcome luscious salt air breezes into each of these rooms. A/C is available throughout the home for those extra hot days of summer and so is a 42” flat screen HD television for watching your favorite flix.

A fully independent living space on the first floor of the main house offers privacy and pleasure with spectacular wide-open scenic views of Duck Creeke and Hamblin Island.

WE OFFER A PERFECT SPOT FOR YOUR NEXT GETAWAY!

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!

Owner info

About the owner: I'm a visual artist, curator and art dealer. I operate the Cherry Stone Gallery celebrating 46 years in the Artists Colony. As a courtesy to you let us offer you a private guided tour of this year's show, wine included! Having travelers come visit me is one of my favorite past times. I also like to travel — I make new friends and my experiences always leave me with food for thought. I traveled quite a bit in 2016. Some places include: San Miguel de Allende; Mexico City; Bangkok and various destinations in Myanmar (Burma.) This year, I will travel to Portugal and India with a few jaunts in the United States. Having the chance to interact with people from places near and far has done a lot for my personal growth. It's true what they say, "you're never too old to learn." BTW, my reputation precedes me. "I take great care to respect your privacy and quiet enjoyment while you're feet are planted in our home." All my very best, Brenda )

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet, MA, USA:
We made this our primary residence because: We live at the beach. We are Home to a 100 year old Artists' Colony with Art Galleries, Music, and Cutting Edge Theater. Oyster farming is one of our coveted industries a practice dating back to the ancient Romans as early as the 1st century BC. We love the light, the dunes, the soft landscape. Our strong ties with the Provincetown Artists' Colony stems from fabulous relationships with visual artists we have represented and exhibited in our gallery for 46 years.
