John is from Boston and MaryAlice is from Houston. We are both working professionals and love spending as much time as we can at our home on the Cape in West Dennis. John grew up spending summer vacations in West Dennis, so we have a real connection to this area. We currently live in Houston. John is a ship captain and manages a fleet of vessels for his company, and MaryAlice is a professor. We have family in the Boston area. John went to school at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and MA at MIT and UT Austin.
We bought our home because we were looking for a perfect spot for retirement and enjoyment. We love this location because it is on a private street, so it is safe and quiet, yet we are close to everything that we love about the cape. When we bought our home we loved that it was just renovated because that allowed us to put on some finishing touches (downstairs patio, outdoor shower and new lawn and landscaping) but also start from scratch on furnishing it.
Being in the mid-cape means we can do more in less time. We love sunsets at Grays Beach or Mayflower Beach's long low tide walks. We love the convenience of West Dennis beach and the great walks we get in from our house to the beach. There's so much to do in this area - golf, bike riding, go carts, eating, eating ice cream! and much more that we just love.
When we were shopping for a home to purchase, we walked in and instantly loved our home. The kitchen was perfect for our lifestyle and we loved the openness. The wood floors, granite countertops and balcony with great views of the river were a quick sell for us. We know you will love it just as much!
