Welcome to Wind, Sand & Stars! Not just a destination but an experience.....this house is the ultimate waterfront escape offering an unmatched summer setting rarely available. Whether it is the dazzling sunsets over the water that light up the sky and can be seen from every room, the direct access to a salt water sandy beach at the edge of the harbor right outside your doorstep or star gazing from the panoramic roof deck, this property has the best of all worlds.
Accessed via a long rustic dirt road that winds through salt water marshes, you will arrive at this truly unique one-of-a-kind setting. The house is situated literally on its own private coastal sand dune and sitting alone on a secluded peninsula that juts out into the water. The property offers the utmost in privacy & has absolutely stunning 360 degree water views; from one side you view out across Blackfish Creek to Wellfleet Harbor and beyond to Cape Cod Bay, the other side of the house looks out into pristine salt marshes and rivers. Once here, wander down your own gently sloping staircase with direct access to a semi-private sandy salt water beach waiting for you right at your toes. From here you can walk along the beach, wade into the harbor's shallow tidal waters or explore the flats.
The house sits on the banks of where Wellfleet Harbor, Blackfish Creek and Loagy Bay all converge. Enjoy a wade into these safe, warm and calm shallow tidal waters, which are equally great for the kids. At low tide you can walk hundreds of yards out on the flats and to various sand bars, while hunting for hermit crabs, shells etc. and see up close and personal the oyster farms that yield the renowned Wellfleet oysters. For deep water swimming, high surf and world class beaches, we offer a free parking pass to the nearby Cape Cod National Seashore, including the famous Marconi Beach which is less than a 5 minute drive away. Numerous other town and state beaches are within a short driving distance.
