It’s a new year, the days are gradually getting longer, and while summer is still a ways off, it’s never too early to start thinking about the perfect Cape Cod getaway. Just take your mind off the current season and imagine waking up to warm weather views of sparkling Nantucket Sound, while enjoying your morning cup of coffee as you feel the breeze coming up off the beach. And what if that beach was the ever-popular Bank Street Beach in the village of Harwich Port? Even better!
Having your own place on the Cape doesn’t have to be either complicated nor reserved for the rich and famous. For a second home, choosing a condo is an attractive option because you don’t have to worry about so many of the things detached homes do, like the exterior and outdoor areas. You can leave at the end of the season knowing your interests are being tended to. And in the case of our hidden gem of a listing at the storied Shore Pines Condominiums, it also lets you get within a few steps of the beach without those large estate-sized price tags.
Tucked away at the end of Bank Street, the building that now holds 5 updated and charming condos, spent its previously life as a much loved guesthouse run by the colorful Elmore Biggs. Listed exclusively by Callie Zaglio, 25 Bank Street Unit 2 is the largest of these units and best positioned to take in panoramic water views. This pristine two bedroom one bath condo is listed for $395,000. Spend your time on the Cape enjoying everything around you and not worrying about property maintenance.
And speaking of what’s around you, the town of Harwich Port is truly a quintessential Cape Cod village. Main Street is lined with different restaurants, book stores, jewelry stores, and art galleries that provide for endless amounts of great shopping, eating and fun! One of our favorites is the Harwich Port House Of Pizza, which offers some of the best slices in town! Another unique aspect of Harwich Port is the cranberry bogs nearby that offer a great nature walk if you want to change it up from the beach!
Bank Street Beach is one of the best public beaches in Harwich Port. The pristine warm waters of Nantucket Sound are great for swimming, but you also have the option to relax on the wide sandy beach and watch the sail and motor boats exit Wychemere Harbor as they cruise off into the horizon. Another perk of living at 25 Bank Street is that you do not have to worry about parking because Bank Street beach is just a few steps from your door.
