Property Description

Briar Hill is our beloved summer house set on over 3 acres of private land on exclusive Wing’s Neck, Pocasset. Four generations of our family have enjoyed summers in this three-story, cedar-shingled and clapboard sided house, originally built by a sea captain in the early 1920’s.

While updated to provide all the comforts of modern life, the soul of the house remains true to a simpler, quieter time. With 7 bedrooms Briar Hill is spacious and elegant while at the same time retaining the rustic charm of an old-fashioned summer house. While there is good cellular coverage, there is intentionally no WiFi or cable. There is a tennis court with a playground surface, wrap-around porch, fireplaces, and two resident-only beaches within walking distance. Additional amenities include sea kayaks, yard games, outdoor grill, large yard, ping pong table, quiet country roads for walking/jogging/biking, a slip which will accommodate a boat no longer than 12 feet and easy access to nearby towns of Falmouth and Woods Hole, as well as the ferry for day drips to Martha’s Vineyard.

Perfect setting for a relaxing family vacation

Our extended family (8 adults and 5 young children) spent a delightful week at Briar Hill. If I could design the perfect family vacation house, this would be it. Briar Hill is gracious and comfortable, with lots of sitting areas, bedrooms, and bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen, and best of all, a porch extending around 3 sides of the house. Every n...

The property is very nice, a quiet estate with a deeply rooted family style cape cod ambiance.

The place is spacious, leaving plenty of room for large groups and families. Along with a full kitchen and a couple of grills to make cooking simple, and plenty of bathrooms with showers to keep every one satisfied. The beds were comfortable and more than enough blankets. The barn was used for parking and the porch served as a great place to end th... Read More

Room for the whole family - and then some...

We could not have asked for a better home to "borrow" for our family vacation. There was ample room for everyone (our numbers varied from 2 to 18 throughout the week), and the amenities were excellent. The location was ideal, as it was peaceful and quiet, but close enough to local points of interest as well as day trips to explore the rest of the... Read More

The house and the guest house gave us a total of 3 refrigerators, 2 stoves, and a ice maker plenty to keep all of us fed and hydrated. I think we spent more time on the back porch than... Read More
