Car: Recommended

Situated in the heart of the Historic District, this home gives you a peacefully forested and spaciously lush green lawn property, close to the historic Captain's Row on 6A (the Old King's Highway) with its highly rated restaurants, intriguing antique shops, various creative art centers and the talent-drawing Cape Playhouse (7 min). It is just off Rt. 6, the main access to everything, yet also only a few minutes from Rt. 28. Located 30 minutes from the canal and 40 minutes to Provincetown, our home is very centrally located. Vary your experience by choosing beautiful beaches on the Bay, the Sound, or the Atlantic Ocean. It is an area of exceptional restaurants, a beautiful natural boardwalk for watching ospreys and sunsets at Gray's beach, evening baseball games down the road at Dennis-Yarmouth high school, local golf clubs, grocery stores, medical needs, as well as lots of 'kid' restaurants and activities for children, including Zooquarium, miniature golf, trampolines, game centers, playgrounds, and Scargo Tower all within 5 minutes of our home, while Hyannis, Whale Watching, the Melody Tent (drawing a wide variety of well known musical talent), Barnstable Airport, museums including the Kennedy Museum, and the Cape's largest mall are within 10 minutes. Even jet-skiing, para-gliding, and wind-surfing are minutes away in Dennis. Whatever you love to do, we have it easily accessible within a few miles radius..

 

Owner info

About the owner: Alison is a recently retired teacher while John is retired from Ciba-Geigy and from instructing the Dale Carnegie Course. They make their primary home in New Jersey, close to 15 grandchildren. Alison summered on Cape Cod from the mid-1950's when her Grandparents retired to the Cape from the Berkshires to escape mountain snows. The house is Alison and John's second home when others are not there to enjoy it and they keep it immaculate and updated. Their caretaker and grounds keeper lives right down the street and is always available when needed.

Why the Owner Chose Yarmouth Port, Yarmouth, MA, USA:
The original property was a single lot and the original small cape cod home was built by a local contractor for my grandparents when they retired. The original home passed down to the next generation, and my father decided to expand and update the home to fulfill the dreams so often spoken of by the women of the family. Today it is a lovely airy home, fully updated, environmentally sound, new furnace, new windows, and a second piece of property to keep and expand the feeling of the original wooded property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The minute you walk in the door, you feel the tensions of life fall away. The large windowed family room just welcomes you in, and soon you find it is the center of your time in the house. It leads you to the deck where we love to share our meals outdoors, or sit quietly to read a great book. The kitchen is wonderfully spacious for cooking. Step out the door and you are only minutes from every possible Cape Cod activity or restaurant due to the home's central location. Or just stay on the property and enjoy...there is lots available to do right there! Badminton, soccer, foosball, air hockey, board games. It truly is a Home Away From Home...... and you have the time to enjoy it!
