This house represents the quintessential Cape Cod experience at its best. Consider that your 5 bedroom dream home has been newly renovated and is in pristine condition. It is located *on* the Herring River in West Harwich, right near the mouth of Nantucket Sound. You can see the river and ocean from almost every room in this three story home. Plus, we have our own small private beach so you can sit in the sand by the water without leaving our property.
This house represents the quintessential Cape Cod experience at its best. Consider that your 5 bedroom dream home has been newly renovated and is in pristine condition. It is located on the Herring River in West Harwich, right near the mouth of Nantucket Sound. You can see the river and ocean from almost every room in this three story home. Plus, we have our own small private beach so you can sit in the sand by the water without leaving our property. The house itself is just 3 feet from the river and you can relax on one of the three decks and watch fish jumping, hermit crabs crawling and birds and other wildlife taking advantage of the river and adjacent salt marsh. There are three docks out your back door that allow you to swim or float in the river. Or you can bring or rent a kayak, canoe or other small craft and dock it right at your back door, and use it in the river or take it about 200 yards to the open ocean. Should you choose to go up the river, you can be in the marshes for over a mile and take in the unspoiled nature preserve with much wildlife to be seen. You may even see an osprey dive for its dinner in the river. Speaking of dinner, you can fish right from our dock and you may catch some scup, striped bass or blue fish! There are five bedrooms and three renovated bathrooms, each with a shower, as well as an additional tub. All bathrooms have windows. The new and up-to-date kitchen has stainless steel appliances and everything else you need. The spacious living room has a high ceiling that opens up to the second floor. Then there is the staircase to the Captain's Lookout that leads to another deck with more outstanding views of Monomoy Island and Nantucket Sound. From up top at night, you can see the river and sparkling homes and this is also a great place to see the moon rise, spot planets and perhaps catch some shooting stars. There is also an unenclosed outdoor shower so you can shower and enjoy the view at the same time. Should you experience a cool summer evening, you can easily light up the living room gas fireplace. The house is just a 5 minute walk to the Dennisport public beach in the event you want to swim in the lovely ocean waves. At night you may hear the fish jumping as you enjoy cooking out on the gas grill. Or you can enjoy the sunset reflected off the old windmill house just across the river. If you love Cape Cod, this truly the one-of-a-kind house that will not disappoint. The house is perfect for a small group of adults who want a romantic, scenic and relaxing time to read a book, swim, kayak and enjoy a million-dollar view. If you have kids of any age, you can let them play in the sand, swim in the river or fish right from our property, all under your watchful eye, while you are sitting on your own deck enjoying a cold drink.
