Featured Property – 35 Hidden Lane, Osterville

When people think of living on Cape Cod, the first thing that springs to mind is the ocean. But limiting the Cape to that one ideal would be selling this haven quite short. Did you know that there are over 365 ponds across the Cape? Formed in the depressions left by glacial ice blocks, most of these are kettle ponds and a very important component of our natural landscape. One of Osterville’s most picturesque “Great Ponds” is Neck Pond, stretching across 13 acres of the Wianno Golf Course, and we have a house perched right off its shore. Just past a classic white gate in a quite enclave of high end properties you will find 35 Hidden Lane, a custom-built single family waterfront home. With many floor to ceiling windows, this beautiful home was designed with an eye to capturing both panoramic views of Neck Pond as well as the phenomenal Wianno Club Golf Course in the distance.

The first floor has a very contemporary open floor plan, with no walls blocking views between the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. Never falling short on amenities and details, the living room offers a large stone fireplace, built-in bookcase, wine bar, and access to both the rear deck and the comfortable screened in porch. If you are looking for a quiet place to get work done, or watch a movie, look no further than the large office with mahogany cabinets, shelves, and media wall.

Perfect for entertaining or unwinding, the above-ground basement has room for a television area, a pool table, and comes complete with a handy full mahogany wet bar. If you would prefer to spend your time outside, the professionally landscaped yard has two patios, pergola, hot tub, herb garden and a seasonal dock to help you enjoy this great Cape Cod Pond.

Ethan Genter from the Cape Cod Times, put it perfectly , “This home isn’t quintessential Cape Cod, but it never wanted to be. It finds a nice blend of traditional and contemporary, all with one of the nicest views in town. Ponds don’t need to be second fiddle to the ocean, and this home proves that.”  If you would like to learn more about this home or, reach out to Richard Colman or give him a call at 508-280-5510.
