Cloistered in its verdant setting with handsome nantucket decor, this home is four miles south of historic downtown Plymouth and10 miles North of Sagamore Beach. With its gorgeous second master suite, it is ideal for oceanfront relaxation -- with easy access to sightseeing, whale-watching, deep sea fishing, antiquing, boutiquing, golf, touring historic homes (some of which date to the 1600s, like our VRBO 343120, beach combing, and swimming. Entering through the oceanfront breezeway, you'll see the breathtaking view sweeping from Plymouth Harbor over to Provincetown. There are vivid sunsets over the water and at night, the twinkling lights of Plymouth, and the beacon from the Gurnet lighthouse across Plymouth Bay. Stepping inside the open-plan cottage, you'll enter the Great Room with its 14-foot stone fireplace, timber trusses, and barnwood-planked ceiling. Attractively decorated with white slip-covered furniture, the Great Room has wide pine floors with forged nails, antique cupboards with beveled-mirror doors (reflecting the ocean view.) The kitchen runs the length of the great room and has a 14-foot long mahogany-topped island with two undermount sinks/Grohe faucets, dishwasher, induction cooktops and a Miele convection oven allowing the cook (or master of canapes and wine) to be part of the family gathering while enjoying the wraparound view. The refrigerator has an icemaker with tasty ice because our water is good here. The fireplace is flanked with massive antique Ottoman doors, brought back from Cyprus, which divide the Great Room from the original master bedroom. This area has a vaulted ceiling, raised sleeping alcove that juts out toward the ocean, has a queen-size four-poster British West Indies bed. Here, posts and beams create a jewel box with ocean views all around. The high windows let you peer at starlight high above the Atlantic. The bedroom's French doors open onto the wraparound mahogany deck, outdoor shower with light house and ocean views, that connects all around to the Great Room and kitchen. And of course air conditioning and ceiling fans in all areas of the house. This handsomely renovated cottage has two full baths in the main house (one upstairs with a mahogany countertop, vessel sink, Grohe faucet, marble shower with pebble floor, and skylights above the shower and toilet. The other on the lower level with 4 foot shower, and separate toilet alcove around the corner for privacy by the walk in closet.) And best of all the ALL NEW oceanfront Master-cottage suite, attached to the house by the delightful waterfront breezeway.
The NEW master suite being offered has vaulted wood ceiling with beams, vertical pine wood walls painted white, private toilet room with vanity (water closet/powder room) behind rolling barn door) in addition to the jaw-dropping oceanfront bathroom with Kohler walk in shower with adjustable seat and grab bars, 9 foot Carrara marble antique vanity with undermount sink and splendid views of the ocean from the vanity and the shower (and the huge glass doors in the bedroom area.) The new situation is perfect for two luxury master suites for situations needing that special unforgettable situation, bride and groom and family, grandparents who deserve the prettiest spot on earth.
Oceanside walls in the main house are all glass sliding, which open to the roomy mahogany deck. The open floor plan offers flexibility for those with just 2 couples wanting space and luxury, or larger families with children spilling into the spacious lower level with its own full bath (laundry room is also on lower level).

The neighborhood is very interesting. It used to be the elaborate Stone Estate, a magnificent spread with mansion, guesthouse, stables, gardener's cottage, caretaker's cottage, poolhouse w saltwater pool, polo fields with stone ramparts, a house modeled after the tea house at Versailles. If you remind me, I will send you an aerial photograph of the estate from the 1930s which shows the extensive grounds, buildings and hinterlands of forested oceanfront acreage (where our house now sits.)
There is a chic grocery store called the Market at Pine Hills, ...excellent cheese shop, top-quality meats, great seafood, wonderful atmosphere and the wine shop next door with excellent selection. Downtown Plymouth has lots of good restaurant, Plymouth Rock, Plimoth plantation (which is like a trip in a time machine back to the 1600s.) Farther south there is the Cape Cod Canal bikeway, Over the bridge is the quaint town of Sandwich with its seafood shops grocery stores historic homes, antiques, restaurants...
