Cape Cod House Hunt: Marsh-front oasis in Wellfleet

The Wellfleet home offers sweeping views of a beautiful and extensive marsh system.

WELLFLEET — If you love long views of idyllic marshes, this may be your kind of house. Tucked at the end of a country lane, it is surrounded by nature and ever-changing scenery.

"It's like owning your own piece of paradise," said listing agent Patricia Lemme of Kinlin Grover Real Estate. "It's in move-in condition."

The home, priced at $1,495,000, was completely renovated in 2017. Tremendous marsh views roll in through large windows and the open, airy design of the first floor creates a magical space, perfect for entertaining or quiet reflection. A deck invites you to stroll outside and be amazed yet again by the natural world beyond.

The ranch-style house features four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. There's also a two-car garage with an unfinished room above. That space would be perfect for creating an art studio or office, with inspiration just a gaze away. A large lawn rolls down to the marsh and one can imagine a fire pit lighting up a summer evening spent with family and friends.

The home also offers a very strong rental history, according to Lemme. Wellfleet is among the most desirable locations on Cape Cod, so the possibility of additional income from the house is a lovely extra.

The home on Springline Drive is located near some of the most beautiful places on the peninsula, from the epic ocean beaches to the quiet, calmer bayside strands. Just down the street is the Pilgrim Spring Conservation Area, with 68 acres of forest, 100 acres of marsh and nearly 2 miles of walking trails. For birdwatchers, this home would be the perfect perch to see herons, hawks and other feathered friends.

Although Wellfleet is a quiet and relaxing place, the town offers fine and casual dining and some of the most delightful art galleries on the East Coast. Fine local crafts and pottery are also available and the Wellfleet Marketplace has everything you need for a beach picnic.

But it might be hard to leave this amazing and unique home on the marsh. It has that real Cape Cod flavor and the epic views that will keep you lingering on the deck, happy to be home.
