This cottage is a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath house with a living room, kitchen and dining room, in a very safe neighborhood. The three bedrooms as well as a full bath are all on the second floor. The first bedroom has a queen bed, cable TV, a decent sized closet and french doors that lead out to a deck that over looks the park. The second bedroom has a double bed and is on the smaller side, but it is very cozy. The third bedroom and the largest of the three has a double bed as well as a twin bed. This room has lots of natural sunlight and a great cross breeze as well as two closets. The bathroom on this floor has a single vanity, toilet and tub/shower combination.
Moving to the first floor, it has a great living room with two large couches and cable TV with a DVD player attached. There is a dining room that seats six as well as a a kitchen with all your necessary amenities (refrigerator, gas stove/oven, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, coffeemaker). While it is not recently renovated, everything in the kitchen works. Finally on this floor there is a half bath where the laundry room is as well, with a washer and dryer.
Outside there is a large wrap-around porch that has a outdoor dining area that seats between four to eight people, an outdoor grill, a hammock and another seating area with three Adirondack chairs.
While there isn't really a yard to this house there are two parks right across the street, one small and one large one with lots of grass to play.
Finally, this house has an outdoor shower which is useful when you come back from the beach, which is only a two minute walk away. Also you can park up to four vehicles at this house.
Born in Colorado, I moved to Falmouth when I was twenty-one, to help my father raise my two younger sisters. I fell in love with the town and the wonderfully different seasons that Falmouth has to offer, that I've been here ever since. I live right across the street from my rental property with my husband and two kids, one of whom is in her third year of college at St. Lawrence and the other who is graduating from Milton Academy this year and hoping to go to school somewhere in the Boston area. My husband owns a restaurant in Woods Hole, called the Captain Kidd which looks out over Eel Pond. We love living in Falmouth Heights because of its close proximity to the center of town, the beach and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard.
Kay Murray purchased this cottage in 1981
My husband started coming to the Heights during the summers when he was in College. It was a huge college-party area with a big night life for people in their early twenties. He saw the value in this property and knew that the Heights was an up-and-coming area which is why he decided to purchase this house and also the one that we live in. Thankfully, his intuition was correct and we are now lucky enough to live in a great area with lots of other families. While the night-life has obviously died down, there is a lot to do including restaurants and bars within a short distance from the property.
Our family had a perfect week at the Cape and this cottage made the trip even better. The cottage had everything a family would need for vacation and Kay was wonderful to work with. The location was perfect and only a short walk to the beach. Our kids loved the neighborhood park. They played softball with the neighborhood children daily and we even had a family game a couple of days. The porch was perfect for the kids and I LOVED the hammock. We hope to make this a yearly vacation for the family and hope we can rent this cottage each year. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
