Antique 9-room colonial cape and barn sitting on one acre of land on a beautiful fresh water kettle pond, makes this a real retreat. Parking for 6 vehicles. Within easy reach of downtown Falmouth and Mashpee Commons.
The pond offers a great place to swim, kayak, and fish with a floating dock and private sandy beach. Two kayaks, an aluminum rowboat, and two stand-up paddle boards are there for your enjoyment. The pond has small mouth and large mouth bass, yellow perch, pickerel, sunfish and black crappie! 10 minute ride to South Cape beach, 6 minutes to Menauhant beach, and boat launch facilities for deep water access at Child's River is less than three minutes away; you can launch the kayaks and paddle boards there, too. Large outdoor deck, gas grill and plenty of seating for everyone. A fire pit is also ready to roast up a few smores!
The barn is a step back in time that has been refurbished and built for gathering friends and family. A great place to retreat when you are ready for cards, darts, and cocktails. When the weather is less than perfect, the pool table on the first floor of the house is ready to be racked up.
Excellent restaurants in Falmouth, Waquoit Village, Mashpee and points in between. Stop & Shop and Roche's markets less than 10 minutes away; same for Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks!
First floor laundry, library, bedroom with a king bed, a sleeping nook with a California king bed, and small bath with walk-in shower. 40" LED HD television and sound bar, DVD and VHS players with a library of movies. Big table for puzzles and a library of books! There is a charging station in the kitchen dining area for six phones or tablets! Second floor has full bath with tub, three bedrooms; one with two twin beds, one with a full size and another with a queen bed. The queen bedroom has plenty of room for a pack 'n play or twin size air mattress.
There is no central air conditioning in this home. Each bedroom, with the exception of the 1st floor sleeping nook, has a window air conditioner during summer months and all bedrooms and the nook have ceiling fans. There is a portable air conditioner we use on the first floor to cool off the pool room and dining area. The heat is gas fired forced hot water and it comes up quick for those visiting during the off-season.
If you are into wildlife, the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is a short walk and offers educational programs and walking trails that brings you to Waquoit Bay. Very cool for kids and frankly, the view of the bay is just awesome. There are mountain bike trails off Rte.151 near 28, and the Shining Sea bike bath is another three minutes down 151 where it intersects Rte. 28A.+ More
