About Kingsley

I am an artist and former architect, mostly living in Boston. I've been working for myself for 25 years at a cooperative pottery studio in Brookline.

I started visiting Truro in 1993 with a friend and fell in love with the Outer Cape. Every season here is extraordinary, and I especially love the spring and fall - which is perfect since I rent summer and winter! When I'm here I usually have several projects going, always looking for new ways to improve the house.

Kingsley purchased this house in 1996

Why Kingsley chose Cape Cod

Like a lot of visitors to Cape Cod, I'd spend part of each vacation fantasizing about owning a home here. Just a simple beach cottage, something I could work on myself and improve. A chance conversation with a local resident let me know about a foreclosed house not yet on the market so I checked it out. A lot more house than the humble cottage I was looking for! But the price was good and I jumped on it and so glad I did!

It didn't need a lot of serious work, so I threw myself into furnishing it and painting - every room a different color.

Fortunately I find home improvements and repairs both interesting and relaxing!

What makes this house unique

Cape Cod can get kind of crazy in the summer, but here in Truro, and particularly on my road, the crowds and traffic seem very far away. Coming home after a day at the beach, taking an outdoor shower and lazing in the hammock is so peaceful! Then a cool drink on the deck as the sun sets and the fireflies come out - the essence of vacation and "getting away from it all"!

I think my favorite thing about my house is the living space, which along with the two decks, provides so many different places to be and yet stay connected with others. Lots of light and breezes make it lovely to be inside or out.

And with the beach at the end of the road there are whole days that I don't get in the car - that's my idea of vacation!

Family Friendly Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Kingsley's home is the perfect place for a family beach getaway. We traveled with a group that included newborns and the layout of the house was perfect for allowing some quiet places for babies to be napping without restricting the activity in the rest of the house. The bedrooms are tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, living, and family rooms. The kitchen was well stocked, and even more importantly - CLEAN! The owner requests that all renters clear out their food in both the refrigerator and cabinets making for an easy set up upon arrival. We had one minor issue that the Kingsley immediately addressed, and even helped us out with other less pressing requests.

We had a great week in a great location and are looking forward to another in 2016.

Charming, spacious and completely functional for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We finally found it! After several years of renting in Truro and Wellfleet, our large extended family has finally found the place we want to come back to year after year! The house is beautiful and spacious with a great outdoor patio that we essentially lived on. Inside was incredibly spacious (the pictures do not do it justice in terms of size) with a very well stocked kitchen, plenty of space for family dinners, and kids art projects, a great walk on deck and a comfortable tv room. The bedrooms were well appointed and good-sized with a great master bedroom that easily slept 2 adults and 2 kids (one on an air mattress and one in a crib) with plenty of extra room. the bay beach is a short 10 minute walk away and was lovely. The house is very close to Head of the Meadow beach, our favorite. This place is a total gem - you feel like you're in a home, not a "property" with beautiful artwork on the walls, sculptures and pottery pieces hidden in the gardens. The home's owner, Kingsley, was wonderful too. Couldn't have had a better week on the cape!
