About the property

4 bedroom, 2 full bath, 2 sun-room additions -1450+ sq ft home

Looking for the perfect spot to spend time on beautiful Cape Cod? You've come to the right place.

This completely updated 4-bedroom, 2 full bath home is conveniently located within minutes of the Bourne Bridge. The home sits nestled in a neighborhood setting within the Briarwood Association located in the town of Mashpee. With its close proximity to the association's private beach area there's no need to load up the car to enjoy a day of swimming. The association's beach, park, dock, playground, tennis court, and picnic area on beautiful Johns Pond are just a short walk from the front door!

The home offers new, comfortable furnishings throughout its 1450 square feet of living space plus two 3-season sun-rooms off the kitchen! One of the sun-rooms is furnished as a space for adults while the other is done with the younger set in mind, furnished with a dinette set for games, activities and additional seating at mealtimes plus a comfortable love-seat. A collection of children’s books is on hand should some quiet time be desired.

There is a pretty first floor bedroom with a new queen size bed. That room is conveniently located near the recently updated full bath on the main floor. That bath has a walk-in shower.

The kitchen is complete with granite counters, a lovely center island, five burner gas stove, a pantry for added storage and comes fully equipped for all your cooking and dining needs. There is a large table with seating for 6-8 adjacent to the island's "breakfast bar" seating for two and close to the sun-room with the dinette set that seats an additional 3-4.

The front-to-back living room has comfortable seating at one end for a group to gather in front of a wall-mounted, flat screen television and an area at the other for reading, enjoying your morning coffee, or simply relaxing. There is a second wall-mounted television in one of the two sun-rooms. The home is air conditioned during the summer months.

On the second floor you'll find three light and bright bedrooms, all with new comfortable beds. One is a sun-filled room that has two twin beds, the middle bedroom has a double, and the third also has two twin beds. This third bedroom is rather unique in that it has a privacy wall that separates the two bed areas. The full bath on this floor has a tub/shower combination and a skylight. Please note - bed linens, bath towels, and beach towels are provided.

The home has a deck overlooking the private, beautifully landscaped back yard with its colorful assortment of flowering hydrangeas (a signature Cape Cod feature), the perfect spot for relaxing after a day in the sun! There is a table with seating for up to 8 and a gas grill. A pretty, circular patio is located to the side of the rear yard for added outdoor enjoyment.

We provide two kayaks and a number of folding beach chairs for our guests' use on Johns Pond. There is a handy "Nantucket Beach Buggy" (a stroller-type pushcart) for bringing chairs, towels, a cooler, and toys to the nearby neighborhood association beach. Spend the morning enjoying time on beautiful Johns Pond then simply walk a few houses back to grab lunch! No need to load and unload a car for a day of swimming in a beautiful setting!

If you wish to spend time at a salt water beach, Mashpee's South Cape Beach is available along with other public beaches in the area, a list of which is provided at the home. The Cape offers many wonderful bicycling trails and information on these is also provided at the property.

The home is convenient to Mashpee Commons, a pretty shopping area designed for casual walking offering coffee shops, ice cream, dining, bowling, and a variety of stores and quaint shops. Falmouth center, another great spot for casual dining, entertainment, and shopping is just minutes from the house. Woods Hole with a ferry to Martha's Vineyard is a short drive as well. Set aside time to hop the ferry to the Vineyard and enjoy a special day discovering its scenic towns, gorgeous antique homes, wonderful shops, restaurants, and pristine beaches. The ferry schedule and pricing is provided at the property.

We’ve done everything to make this sweet home a place you’ll thoroughly enjoy while visiting beautiful Cape Cod and all it has to offer. We love spending time there and know you will too!

About Jeanne A.

I currently reside in Connecticut with my husband and our rescue dog, Duke. We always dreamed of owning a home on Cape Cod and were able to make that a reality in October of 2016. My family and I love spending time there and have done all we could to make it a comfortable, welcoming place in which to relax and unwind.

Jeanne A. purchased this house in 2016

Why Jeanne A. chose Mashpee

When we looked for a home to purchase we knew we wanted a property on the upper Cape with proximity to a beach, four bedrooms and two full baths, all of which this home offered. Although it was definitely a "diamond in the rough" I knew we could transform it into our dream vacation home. After purchasing it, the interior was completely updated, every room freshly painted, newly furnished, and the kitchen completely stocked. This is not a tired beach house but more a lovely vacation home fully equipped with everything you should need for a relaxing, comfortable stay. We love its proximity to Johns Pond and being able to simply walk a few houses away to the neighborhood association's beach! Johns Pond is a beautiful large "kettle pond" with a sandy beach, dock, playground, picnic, and swimming areas. No need to pack up the car to drive a distance to then search for a parking spot, unload the car, set up your beach gear and only then enjoy a swim. Simply load your things into the "Nantucket Beach Buggy" pushcart we provide and take a short walk down to the beach. Time for lunch or an afternoon nap? Simply walk back to the house and relax. Another appealing feature is being able to take the two kayaks we provide, attach one of the small 2-wheel carts to each, and roll them down to the pond to enjoy a wonderful time exploring the pond.

What makes this house unique

The home is unique in that it offers several living areas in which to spread out. Besides the main living room on one end, there are two comfortably furnished sun room additions off the kitchen on the other. The children can have a sun room of their own to play games or watch television while the adults relax in the living room. Need a quiet space to make a call, go online, or curl up with a good book? Simply set up shop in the second sun room and close the door. The flexibility of these comfortable, separated living spaces is a great feature.

Miscellaneous notes... Although our calendar does not show availability outside of the dates shown, please don't hesitate to ask if the home can be rented in the off months. We enjoy being there in the off season but would be happy to consider renting it out for short stays during that time. Fall on the Cape is a wonderful time of year with summer-like weather and smaller crowds. We provide a number of beach chairs for your use. There are 6 padded, upright folding chairs and six low, backpack-type beach chairs. A beach blanket and picnic spread are also on hand. The rear yard is almost completely fenced in and is a nice spot for outdoor play.

Fabulous house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful, super-clean and well-stocked. Mashpee Commons nearby made it a breeze getting food and beverages. Everything and anything we needed for our stay was provided. Grandparents stayed downstairs giving adult children and their one-year-old the upstairs bedrooms and bath. Plenty of room for all of us. Owner makes it so easy to enjoy the beach with provided beach buggy, chairs, umbrella. What a delight!

Fantastic Family Holiday Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many holiday homes over the years and I have to say this is the best. The location and access to the pond is just fantastic for kids. The house is so well equipped and comfortable, Jeanne has really thought about everything. We met with some of the neighbours who were lovely, in short the week was perfect, we would go back in a heartbeat and recommend it to any of our friends.

  • 5 of 5

Jeanne’s home is beautiful, welcoming, and considerate of any guest needs that is staying there. The home provided everything that my family needed for a wonderful vacation. Jeanne provides a detailed welcome book, suggestions and recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and day trips. It was extremely helpful and appreciated for planning the visit! The area is beautiful and very accessible today traps on the Cape or Boston. Thank you for giving my family a memorable vacation!
