Our property is owned by four siblings and has been enjoyed by our family for generations. Known as Barrel Hill, or formerly Signal Hill, it is the highest spot in Barnstable Village, where historically a barrel was raised to announce the arrival of packets. Farmers would bring produce to the harbor and welcome supplies from Boston.
This property has been in the family for several generations and has a great deal of history with the others family properties that surround it. The house has been remodeled and expanded several times, preserving its charm, yet growing and modernizing to provide plenty of comfort for a large group.
Our property is unique because it is totally private, adjoining acres of conserved land, yet only a five minute walk to lovely Barnstable Village. The other primary benefit is its ability to comfortably accommodate a large group.
