Down a sandy lane, sheltered by the tallest oaks in the area & frequently visited by hoot owls, this thoughtfully restored retreat provides a peaceful sanctuary from which to base a memorable vacation. The bright and airy fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has a breakfast bar and antique French doors which open onto the back deck for morning coffee in the sunlit garden. Large living room/ dining room and separate media/family room, both with fireplaces, and a half bath complete the ample first floor plan. All four bedrooms and two full baths are on the second floor; the master bedroom boasts an enormous antique 'lion's paw' double ended bathtub, as well as large shower with seat. One bedroom has a sleeping loft, good for children. The third floor roof deck is accessible from the master bedroom, up a ladder and through a small, serene and uncluttered meditation space.
There is a newly installed generator, ensuring uninterrupted water supply and basic electrical needs in case of outages.
The wrap-around screened porch, third floor rooftop basking deck, backyard terrace, front yard terrace and fire pit, hammock in the woods, back lawn with swing, comfortably long and deep window seats, fully stocked game cabinet and bocce court all offer many options to stay put, rain or shine. The caretaker/gardener lives on the premises. Swimming, surfing, or sandcastle building are all easily accessible at nearby Corn Hill Beach on the bayside, and Longnook or Ballston Beach on the oceanside. Morning croissants and wonderful deli sandwiches, groceries and newspapers, the Truro post office, bait & tackle shop and fish market are all 1 mile down quiet Castle Road. Castle Hill Center for the Arts is around the corner, as are the local farmstand and Pamet River Harbor. Golfers come from far and wide to play the oldest golf course on Cape Cod, the Highland Links, a public 9-hole par 36 combination of wind, dune and breath-taking ocean views. Pets allowed w/ prior approval.
