Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom concrete house with huge 'recreation room'

Charlie Zehnder, one of the Cape Modern House Trust architects, built this jewel in 1977. Solid concrete building with three floors and filled with artwork of Cape Cod's best artists. The house is wonderfully cool in the summers and has decks off all the living/bed rooms.

There is a beautiful view of the Herring River area that leads to Cape Cod Bay and Duck Harbor beach which is known for it's spectacular sunset. It is situated in a private location but also close to the town of Wellfleet.

This house is ideal for a small family or a writer/artist looking for an inspiring location to work on their artwork. There is one queen bed, one double bed, a double futon, sleeper couch, and one twin-and-a-half bed. Not available for more than five people.

Rent includes cable, wireless internet, DVD player, washer/dryer, and fully equipped kitchen etc.

Suitability:

About Grace Hopkins

Grace is the daughter of prominent modern artist who built this house. She is a photographer and gallery director living in Truro, MA.

Grace Hopkins purchased this house in 1977

Why Grace Hopkins chose Wellfleet

This house is a sculpture. Wellfleet is a lovely town. The house is close to everything and yet totally private. The house is cool in the summer because of the concrete walls and the breezes. You will find a bug free retreat/treehouse.

What makes this house unique

You will never experience anything quite like this house. A piece of art filled with art, color, and light.

Well-appointed, unique oasis -- one of a kind!

  • 5 of 5
We felt very privileged to be able to stay here. Here in the woods of Wellfleet, you are surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna, fantastic art, and striking architecture. The house is essentially an immense sculpture. Those interested in art and architecture will appreciate this special gem. It was well-appointed and very comfortable, right down to the comfy mattress and furniture throughout.There was a wonderful selection of novels, poetry books, and art tomes, which we enjoyed during our stay. Also, it meant very much to us to be able to travel with our four-legged companion. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful, and hearing coyotes howl in the distance under the star-studded sky was almost magical. Thank you, Grace! We hope to return in the future!

I was so happy to find the place an inspiration to my holiday visually.
The architecture inspired peace and creativity. The home was well equipped with towels,sheets, and coking wares. The close proximity to Well Fleet made a wonderful holiday.I look forward to returning every year.

Car: recommended

Property is located on the edge of Herring River. While the view is of Duck Harbor a little under two miles away the river bed gives a grand vista between the house and the water. No houses can be seen or heard from the way the architect sited the house.
