About the Property
Situated on the west coast of Falmouth, this open, spacious contemporary enjoys gorgeous sunset and ocean views. Cool ocean breezes keep it comfortable all summer. A circular drive, holding four or more cars, leads to the home. Enter through double doors to a multi-level solarium that runs the length of the house. Overlooking the gardens and furnished with a hand carved Thai teak bench, wicker, and Asian artifacts and original art by the owner, this is a splendid place to relax and soak up the sun.
The first level has two large bedrooms, one twin-bedded next to the solarium and the other can be either twins or king bedded with french doors leading to a patio and an HDTV. These bedrooms share a marble bath. The master suite has a queen bed, sitting area with fireplace, marble bath and spa, and French doors leading to patio and gardens.
A grand oak central staircase leads to the second level. This large, light filled open space with a soaring cathedral ceiling, stunning furnishings and original art, features a living area with corner fireplace, a large dining area and a fully-appointed gourmet kitchen. Three sets of French doors lead to a 40 foot deck with chaises, Adirondack chairs, dining furniture, and a gas grill.
In addition, there is a den with sectional couch, built-in desk, WiFi internet connection, cable 46 inch HDTV, DVD Blu-ray player and dozens of games, books and puzzles. A full marble bath completes the second level.
Our private, warm-water beach on Buzzards Bay is a few steps from the house. An enclosed outside shower is available, as is a charming shed to store bicycles. The gardens and patio around the house contain wonderful places for relaxation. Overall there is a romantic quality to the property with its draped wisteria, beach roses and blue hydrangeas. Everything is included for an extraordinary experience in a special part of the world.
The Sippewissett area of Falmouth lies along its western coast overlooking Buzzards Bay. The sunsets over the ocean are spectacular and every evening brings a magnificent splash of color across the sky and sea. The Shining Sea bike and walking path runs from North Falmouth to Woods Hole for 7 miles of marshland, woods, and seacoast, and we are located halfway along the path. This is an absolute Must Do. Our private beach is across from us and is a beautiful crescent beach with ocean on one side and a pond with wildlife on the inside. This is the perfect place for kayaking. There are adjacent beaches as well that are within walking distance from our house and are beautiful, especially for children. Beautiful gardens for visiting are close-by as are golf courses and tennis courts. Falmouth Village is a five minute drive and is an idyllic area for shopping, dining and strolling. Many specialty shops and cafes and fine food are available here.

About the owner: I am an artist living in the Boston area. I also run a Bed & Breakfast and have always been interested in the art of hospitality. Time with my family has always been a precious experience and so each vacation we have had together has been sacred and I want everything to be conducive to our enjoying our time together. I put that kind of thought into providing a place for people and families to gather and enjoy their time together. Given I am an artist, my Falmouth house acts as a gallery for my oil paintings as well as for many artifacts we've collected in our travels. I take great pleasure in knowing so many people have created wonderful memories while vacationing in our house.
Why this property? My husband Richard and I first fell in love with the area and were thrilled to find a wonderful piece of land for sale out on a point on the west coast of Falmouth with deeded beach rights to a perfect crescent shaped beach with the ocean on one side of the sand and a pond and wildlife on the other. Together with a wonderfully talented architect we designed a house that is oriented to the 180 degree view of the water with a passive solar design. We wanted a large entrance solarium to collect warmth in winter and an open, bright, comfortable home looking out to the sea and beautiful neighborhood. What makes our property special is that we get to see gorgeous sunsets each night and have a beautiful private beach diagonally across from our house. The Shining Sea Bike and Walking Path is also very close by and it is one of the highlights of a stay in the area. Falmouth Village is a 5 minute drive away and is an idyllic town center with wonderful specialty shops, many excellent restaurants, outdoor cafes, bookstores, a French bakery and tea shop.
