About Stephen Alicandro

My father purchased the property in 1977 for an amazing $20,000. The lot was part of a larger parcel owned by the Butterworth family (they live in the house directly next door). The lot was divided up into three, one-acre parcels. I had just graduated from architectural school and was working in Washington DC when my father told me the exciting news. His first question was, 'When can we have the floor plans ready?”

With the excitement of my first full house commission, I immediately started on the design. The building form was inspired by the passing ships on Vineyard Sound and if you look at the front façade, you can see that the lines of the roofs mimic a two mast sailboat. In fact, after the house was completed, local boaters have told me that they use the house as a landmark to navigate.

My father and I were the general contractors. For three years, I commuted from Washington, DC almost every weekend to work on the house. We sub-contracted out the exterior shell, framing and finishes. For the interiors, we employed a retired carpenter who did a great job translating my sketches into reality. My father was an expert stone-mason (like most Italians). He learned the trade when he helped his father build a house back in the 1930s. You can see the results of his labor throughout the house.

There was a great sigh of relief upon completing the construction three years later. The design purposely provides waterviews from every room. The house is particularly interesting during the night when the weather is clear and the moon is full.

Fabulous experience

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house and the location! We were delighted with the modern kitchen, great appliances, and the dining room - the family spaces were perfect – and we used the deck a lot. It was amazing to have the grill to use. We had absolutely everything that we needed, and appreciated the details like beach chairs, umbrellas, and the hot/cold outdoor shower. The kitchen was well stocked - we didn’t lack a single thing. The home was clean and felt like a true "New Englander" home. The access to the sea and to the pond were ideal. We made frequent use of the outdoor areas - we clammed on Sunday and found plenty of clams to make a beautiful clam stew. We also found and ate oysters. There was a lot of wildlife in the pond. When kayaking right behind the house, we saw egrets, swans, ducks, geese, and an osprey nest complete with a family. We loved that the sea was warm there, as opposed to the surfing beaches. Even through there were people all along the beaches, it wasn’t very busy in the stretch of accessible beach. The home and the surrounding property felt very private and we loved getting away from the crowds there while the rest of Cape Cod felt very busy. The owner and leasing agent were prompt and helpful with my questions. I highly recommend this house!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was spotless, and beautiful! Tons of space for everyone and beautiful views. The brand new kitchen made staying in and cooking fun. I didn't really want to leave the house all week even though it's right across from the beach.

Family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this property for a week. It's in a lovely, forested location but also near the beach. All amenities were provided and the kitchen was superb. We had a toddler who had to be carefully supervised around the stairs, but otherwise it was very family friendly. We highly recommend this house.

Menahaunt Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for a month. The location was great for us; near downtown Falmouth, easy access to Hyannis Port ferries, etc. The house was as advertised and clean and suited our needs perfectly. There was a lot of privacy, with the pond/lake behind, no neighbors on one side. It was fully equipped, including beach chairs, batteries, scotch tape, lobster pots. -- anything you could need.

The owners were pleasant to deal with.

We would rent this house again and highly recommend it.

As good as it looks!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house -- our three-generation family of six. Great house! -- great decks for outdoor living! -- well-stocked kitchen that met even the demanding needs of our gourmet cooks. The dining room is the hub, where we gathered for nightly board games. Lots of windows and light, and lovely views. Totally comfortable. The one downside is that the loft, as expected, does not have a door. so the morning noise of a one-year-old made sleeping-in an impossibility for those folks. (The loft, though, is quite private in other regards -- set-off from the main traffic of the house. But not from the noise.) The owners and the local manager were extremely responsive and accommodating. Local beach is right across the road, and lovely for morning strolls. We also especially enjoyed Old Silver Beach, a 10-minute drive -- great sand and gentle lapping water. We would definitely return to this house again -- it was just wonderful.
