You'll be in awe of the oceanfront position of this five-bedroom Truro cottage, a charming and eclectic Cape Cod home with a private deck and hammock out on the dunes, a gorgeous beach in its backyard, and a wonderful location for exploring the Outer Cape.
Secluded, tranquil, and endlessly scenic, this two-level cottage sits atop the dunes that line Cape Cod Bay, just three miles south of central Truro. You'll enjoy stunning sunset views from the deck each evening and be just a few steps from the sand, five miles north of Wellfleet, and 13 miles south of Provincetown and the tip of Cape Cod.
Where the exterior is classic and shingled, the interior is open and loft-like with exposed ceiling beams and an abundance of unique character. Step inside to find casual furnishings, a selection of books and games to keep you entertained, and a wood-burning fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling hearth that creates a natural gathering space.
Begin each summer morning in the kitchen, where you can grind fresh coffee beans, read the newspaper, and open the window to let in the ocean breeze. Stock the distressed cabinets with your favorite ingredients, flip pancakes and scramble eggs on the electric stove, and set the extendable eat-in table as your favorite tunes stream on the sound dock.
Leave the plates in the dishwasher as you make your way outside to the deck to soak in the morning sunshine. Recline on one of the beach chairs, bring along a magazine to read in the hammock, and take a long walk down the beach to search for sea shells and other treasures. Come lunchtime, you can light the gas grill, take a seat at one of the umbrella-shaded tables, and enjoy a meal of Cape Cod seafood with a view of the ocean that it came from.
When you've had your fill of swimming and sunbathing, simply rinse off in the outdoor shower and throw your bathing suits and towels in the private washer/dryer. Mix a few cocktails to sip on the deck at sunset, and retreat indoors to choose a DVD or a VHS to enjoy on the flatscreen cable TV.
Spend your mornings peering through the telescope in search of whale spouts, and your evenings sleeping soundly in one of five bedrooms (which will accommodate eight guests). You'll find one bedroom with a queen-size bed, one bedroom with a double bed, two bedrooms with a twin bunk bed apiece, and a fifth bedroom with two free-standing twin beds. Additional amenities include one full bathroom with a tub/shower combination and free WiFi throughout the home.
Whether you're traveling to the Outer Cape for a wedding, a reunion, or a summer vacation, you'll fall in love with the quiet beauty of Truro. Choose to sunbathe, swim, and build sandcastles on the beach outside your home, or visit Ballston Beach, Corn Hill Beach, Fisher Beach, Great Hollow Beach, Longnook Beach, or one of the other incredible stretches of sand within a six-mile drive or bike ride.
Head 13 miles north for the day to catch a whale-watching cruise out of Provincetown Harbor, or drive up and down the Outer Cape to admire gorgeous sections of Cape Cod National Seashore. Spend an evening or two in the outfield at an Orleans Firebirds game at Eldredge Park 18 miles south, or catch a drive-in movie at the Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre 11 miles south.
Come and experience summer in New England as it was meant to be enjoyed - you'll never forget your stay at this Truro vacation home!
