This Cape Cod home with private beach is on the market for $8.8M

Summers on Cape Cod can be glorious at a beach property where friends and family gather in a big comfortable house built for entertaining. 

It’s all possible in a Mashpee home in The Bluff area of New Seabury that comes complete with relaxing spaces, rooms for everyone, gorgeous water views, a private sandy beach, a heated pool and an outdoor kitchen. This home is listed for $8.8 million by Debra Caney of Sotheby’s International Realty. 

Although the house was built in 1992, it has been very lightly used – in summers only – and the interior is so fresh and white that it looks brand new. Boasting six bedrooms in the main house and two bedrooms in the guest house, it can accommodate a multigenerational crowd. Seven full bathrooms serve the bedrooms with two additional baths in the guest house and one half bath on the first floor.

Come through the front door. The foyer is a great introduction to the house with an arched opening to the kitchen on one side and your first sighting of the ocean straight ahead. 

Sun-splashed and bright with 6,884 square feet of living space in the main house, the home has floor-to-ceiling windows that feature panoramic water views over Nantucket Sound. 

The first floor is open with elevated style. Central air conditioning keeps the whole home comfortable. 

The living room is casually elegant, designed with pale wood trim and beams that enhance the ceiling. A gas fireplace warms chilly evenings. The room has walkout access to the house’s wraparound deck with a seating area built around a firepit.

A table that seats 10 fits easily into the dining area under a tiered chandelier that contrasts nicely with the mood of the home. Two walls of windows include a wide bay that invites the light into the space. A tall glass door leads out to an outdoor dining area.

The kitchen is original to the house. It features high ceilings, pale wood cabinetry and granite flooring and counters. The angled two-level island provides more storage and seating at the breakfast bar for four. An integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator is concealed behind paneling.

Only a few steps from the open living space, the brilliantly sunny primary bedroom has tall windows that illuminate the room and show off expansive water vistas. Two French doors open to a small private deck

There’s room for a king-sized bed and a seating area that’s currently furnished with a couch, a chair and a chaise. A walk-in closet takes care of clothing. 

The primary bathroom sports eight big windows. A separate toilet closet is a luxury. Bathing in this bathroom allows a choice between a soak in the spa tub or a cleanse in the glassed-in steam shower. 

The long vanity has storage drawers and a makeup station at one end. The shining stone floor reflects the light coming in through the multiple windows. Shrubbery increases the sense of privacy from the outside.

A curved staircase leads upstairs for more ocean views from a lovely family room and three bedrooms with attractive bathrooms. Additional bedrooms on the home’s lower level look out on the swimming pool, enticing the occupants to go out to take a dip.

Some lucky visitors get to stay in the guest house, where there are two bedrooms, each with a full bathroom and a living area with a kitchenette.

With spaces for swimming, sunbathing, grilling and dining, the outdoors here is extremely inviting.  Wooden steps on the property go down to the private beachfront. The lush green lawn and mature trees contribute to the sense of peace about the place. And the exterior of the home has been maintained beautifully. It was fitted with new shingles, a new roof and new windows this year.
