A large gas fireplace heats the master bedroom on cold winter nights, and a wood burning fireplace adorns the common area. The cozy living room is close to a full modern kitchen with a joining dinning room. Barbeque on the slate patio off the kitchen with a gas grill for all your summer cookouts after a great day at the beach. Walk to the fresh water Pond, Grews Pond, across the street with a lovely beach and playground. The property is close to Spohr Gardens famous for their breathtaking Daffodil Days. Whale watching tours, restaurants, pubs, trails in the woods, biking, hiking, skating, boating, and more are all walking distance.
I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.
Frederick William House has been in my family for nearly a century. We enjoy sharing this magical spot with others. The best memories are made with family.
If you want to 'get there' Frederick William House' is located in an deal spot for the active vacationer who wants to antique downtown, bike, or take in our picturesque landscapes.
